Lady Gaga Has Written A Song About Donatella Versace

FFN_IMAGE_50904060|FFN_SET_60054894‘Donatella‘ is my love letter to Donatella [Versace]. The song is an incredible crazy fun pop song with really raising electronic beats that I did with [producer] Zedd. It’s about being a fearless female and not caring what people say about you –being proud of who you are and walking the walk no matter what…it’s not so much about Donatella as a brand as it is Donatella the person
about me as a person, that idea of what the public wants from you.
Donatella, maybe she’s a bitch, maybe she’s too skinny, maybe she’s
too rich, maybe she’s too out there. Or, maybe she’s brilliant, maybe
she’s intelligent, maybe she’s strong, maybe she’s everything, maybe
she’s Donatella.”

    Ugh, pose, pose, pose. Jesus, lady, can you not try so hard to look like you’re so special, politically correct or deep-and-meaningful? Who the fuck cares whether you write a song about a bloody fashion designer?

  • Mauricio

    she’s no trying hard , she has done/written (about this) these songs before fyi. I do care about the songs and what she writes about and I’m not the only one, so stop winning and complaining and ignore any news about her that is it. Me: I can’t wait to listen to this song :)

    Stefani has been a clever woman so far, I’m reserving judgement about the whole album until it releases. Part of me thinks “Applause” was geared to briefly satiate until more significant singles are released. I wouldn’t describe myself as a monster, but I’ve been a fan because she can deliver great vocals during live performances.

    Make her go away, please, Are we going to get fed this fodder until her lp has been and gone?

  • Jynx

    I can’t at the detractors reaching for something to criticize her about. I mean, if all you have is calling her a “poser” and wanting her to “go away” then you’re obviously desperate for material. At least you tried.

  • Red Meat

    The hate is real :)

    I give Lady Gaga a round of “Applause” (I know, I was waiting to use that!) Much love to Mama Monster. I am waiting to see how long before Grandmadonna makes a claim that the song is really hers! Madonna’s song would be “Menopause”

    “It’s about being a fearless female and not caring what people say about you –being proud of who you are and walking the walk no matter what…”

    In other words it will be Women’s World, minus the tired lyrics and unoriginal sound, oh yea, and it will be danceable, fresh, a huge hit on the radio and a dance party anthem.
