Speaking of stars colliding, the KAREN O has claimed that there is a “core authenticity or originality lacking” in the LADY GAGA.
Asked by the Guardian if the New York trio felt a kinship with the GAGA due to her extravagant style and performance, the frontwoman replied ..
No, no, no! I feel there’s a core authenticity or originality lacking there. It’s so referential. I mean, everything is referenced, but when you read Just Kids by Patti Smith, there’s idol worship towards poets or Jim Morrison or whoever, but it seems to be processed through her filter and it ends up becoming very Patti Smith. That’s different from just picking what you like from what other people do and presenting it as your own.
Well that pretty much goes for all modern day pop artists.
