As a Gaga fan (I've seen her twice in concert... once in a very intimate setting before she was well-known at the Bill Graham auditorium -incredible!-, and then a year later-a HUGE auditorium that made it impossible to see her in any detail and she seemed like she was on her way to becoming a "product"). I can compare this television special to the differences in those concerts. She's definitely a dynamo with an incredible voice, but she's publicly burning herself out with stuff like this, as well as softening her image big-time. As long as she continues to constantly appear on anything they ask her to ("The View?" (twice!),"The X Factor", etc.), I'm already hearing people beginning to say, "Oh God, not her again." The best thing LG could do would be to stay out of the public eye for a few months to a year and then come back with another terrific CD. Even her music videos have become more stale and traditional... what happened to the very original Haus of Gaga stuff like "Paparazzi" and "Telephone?" Was it just for shock value to get her career on the road? Gaga, go back to your original image; it was bold, refreshing and taught me a lot about myself. I hated pop music, got cancer in 2008, started listening to your early stuff and your views on life, and they were the same things I was learning as I went through treatment. I went into remission and realized I needed to do the things I was afraid of in order to grow... now I've been skydiving for four years. Sounds cheesy, but everything you were saying at the beginning of your career was right on... with specials like this one, however, you're becoming the Doris Day of pop. Stay away from t.v., you're too talented to stoop this low. Oh yeah... and can you get me a date with Victor? :-)
