Lady Gaga: Psycho or Genius?

Lady Gaga is one of those people whose name strikes a chord with everyone. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not so good. She's known for her over-the-top outfits and her off-the-wall comments. I must admit, I don't really listen to her music very often, but when I do, there is no doubt that the woman is talented. I had been avoiding her, since she seemed so weird, but then I saw her perform on the Grammies and thought to myself "Dang, that woman has talent."

I think Lady Gaga (Stefanie to those who knew her 'before') is actually a genius.There's not a word that comes out of her mouth that she doesn't think about beforehand. I remember watching her on 60 Minutes or some such show and she was very coy and provocative, inciting cringes from her interviewer. It was exactly what he (and the fans watching the show) wanted from her at that point. Then I saw her later on the Graham Norton show and she was hilarious. She has an excellent sense of humor and seems like she'd be a lot of fun to hang around with.The clip below is 15 minutes long, so be forewarned if you're short on time. But it shows how cool she really is. (It also has Gwyneth Paltrow, who I used to dislike but has grown on me slowly since Royal Tenenbaums, and Geoffrey Rush, who is just plain awesome.)

And of course, we can't forget the outfits. They're so crazy and creative, you can't help but look (and love. Some of them are pretty freaking awesome).

So here I am, a Lady Gaga convert. What do you think? Is she a genius? Or do you think she's just plain nuts?

And I'm going to leave you with not Lady Gaga, but a cover of Bad Romance by Joseph Gordon Levitt. Warning: He swears a bit, but it's an awesome performance. This boy is so dreamy.
