You can try too hard sometimes. Maybe that’s what’s happening with Lady Gaga. Her performance of a downer song called “Dope” on the awful You Tube Music Awards tonight was a major FAIL. The LA Times reports several thousand fans clicked off while she was singing–in the dark, looking awful, dressed like a trucker or something, who knows? Gaga’s ARTPop album is out a week from Tuesday. Maybe she’s already bored with it. But selling albums isn’t easy these days. Even Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and others have sold ok but not astounding numbers. Gaga has good songs on ARTPop. She better not blow it. Play the title track, or “Applause” or something upbeat, my dear. This is not going to work.
