We Just Don't Get Lady GaGa!

So Lady GaGa is this week's number one in the singles chart with her début single Just Dance. How did that happen? We know some people like her, but erm... why?

As most of you are aware, we heart all kinds of pop music over here at Helen Of Troy..., but this highly-stylised twenty-year-old New Yorker just aint doing it for us. Maybe it's her over-inflated opinion of herself 'I'm defying all the preconceptions we have of pop artists', or maybe it's just that her music is completely unoriginal and rather vapid – in our eyes at least. Either way, we're rather dumbfounded by the whole thing, especially now that Alexis Pretridis over at the Guardian has given her début album The Fame three stars!

For those of you who have yet to hear her number one single, check it out below and let us know what you think. For those who are already fans, please, try and help us to understand!

Basically it's toilet, I'm so glad you guys agree. I keep waiting for it to kick in/off/something. This ain't Eurovision love. Major hype overdrive I reckon. She sounds like fricking Shakira to me. Dis-MISSED!

Thank god you agree Greggles. It seems we've gotten to a stage were people are bigging up any old shit! Hope you're good. xx

Thank goodness, thought I was mad/uncool for thinking her music was just hype.

p.s. you're based in Manc???

You're not mad or uncool at all. Hopefully she'll be a flash in the pan.

Yep, we're both based in good old Mancunia :)
