"Lady GaGa will define our era's popular music," writes Nicky Smith for SpliceToday.
"Gaga is a semi-interesting artist and a shrewd self-promoter, who has gone from literally nobody to the biggest celebrity in the world in just 4 years, an astonishing and confusing accomplishment that deserves some respect. Focusing on her image more than her music, GaGa has presented herself as a kind of modern provocateur, daring to do what no one else will and wear what no one else would ever think of. Most of it is bullshit of course, and I'm still not convinced she's more than a flash in the pan musically (with only an album and a half to her name, GaGa hasn't released any new music in almost a year, despite extreme overexposure).
But GaGa's at the forefront of a contemporary cadre of young female lead singers who use sex appeal in a more conspicuous way than ever before, like Ke$ha and Katy Perry, who are leading the way in Slutwave."
