      JHO Bag tries hard, but she can’t sing, act or dance. She is a talentless hack. This shows that – her lip syncing is getting better, but this is an insult to the Celia Cruz legacy. She has never sounded like this during a live performance. Youtube her Saturday Night Live performances and hear how truly awful she is!

      You call these performances???? They were all lip-synced except, perhaps, for Katy Perry.

      Lady Gaga was her usual big-headed self. Does anyone take this fake woman seriously anymore? She jumped the shark by collaborating with homophobic pop singer TI on one of her new songs. How anyone in the GLBT community can support her anymore is beyond me.

      As for Justin Timberlake, have you noticed that he’s enthusiastically endorsed Russia by going there next year on a leg of his world tour? The man is a pig. He deserves absolutely no support from the GLBT community.

      Apart from the usual parade of lip-sync acts who don’t really support the GLBT community, did you notice that not one of the acts featured an openly gay/bi male? You would see more gay/bi men at a Sunday gathering of conservative Christians at Pat Robertson’s house.

      Here’s another point about how fake Lady Gaga really is. Her Marilyn Monroe performance at the music awards has been done before – by Madonna. Remember when Madonna copied Marilyn’s look back in 1985?

      Lady Gaga recycles other people’s ideas and then dares to call herself an artist.

      Lady CrapCrap is the same marginalyy-talented hack she has always been. I mean, really. Can an ersatz admirer please step-up and illustrate what has changed between now and five years ago or whatever? In fact, her apparent shucking and jiving was much more obvious back then.

      This is what you get when you put entertainers on a pedestal while living in a pop-culture vaccum. Mainstream gay culture isnoften an embarrassment of empty-headed superficial crap.

      Lady CrapCrap is the same as she’s always been; your short-attention spans have just moved on to the next glitzy hack who pays lip service to the community.

      Typed this on a phone, screw spell, grammar, and syntax.

      @jimbryant: I guess we know who you stan for. It was plainly obvious that most of the performances were sung live. Not all of them, but most.

      Most of the performances were okay. I don’t really think most of them were memorable. J-Lo’s performance was good. Miley’s performance wasn’t amazing; her EMA performance was much better. Gaga’s performance was great. It was a really good interpretation of the lyrics. And, judging by people’s comments on here, it’s plainly obvious that people apparently fail to grasp the pretty straight-forward message of the song. Plus, Marilyn and any interpretation thereof is classy as hell. Katy’s performance was pretty good. I love it when she actually sings live and doesn’t lipsync her way through it. *coughcoughVMAscough* She has a great voice, but more often than not, either her producers or the songs themselves don’t let her talent shine through.

      @jimbryant: Ariana Grande didn’t lip synch. She was perfect as always. And Miley clearly didn’t lip synch… because her voice wasn’t that impressive. Especially in this performance of Wrecking Ball, she was better on SNL and at the Iheartradio festival.

      As for Gaga’s side of the performance, Idk if she lip synced but I’m like ninety nine percent sure RKelly did. And it’s because of that freaking ear piece mostly. His voice sounded too clear and whenever their voices sound too clear and perfect and they’re wearing those ear pieces instead of holding a mic, you’re pretty sure they lip synched. I feel like those ear pieces are never even real or hooked up to anything, they’re just there to be fake.

      I have a theory about these female pop acts like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears etc etc. They are part of a monopoly that is designed to shut openly gay and bisexual male performers out of the music industry. Yes, out.

      These women appear to be part of the same structure which has decided that openly gay and bisexual men should not be allowed to succeed commercially in the music scene and for the masses.

      Think about it and answer the following question: how many openly gay or bisexual American male performers have hit the charts with huge success in the last 30 years since Madonna came on the scene? I can’t think of anyone. Not one. Adam Lambert had marginal success. OK, let’s be charitable and say one.

      Only one fu@#ing male performer in 30 years??????!!!!!! The mind boggles. This music industry has been allowed to get away with a scorched earth policy in relation to gay and bisexual men. It’s like a sexual cleansing.

      Have you also noticed that Lady Gaga appears to have dumped gay men from her stage act? She’s now moved on to black men. So, instead of using gay men as a cover, she’s now using black men as a cover.

      Aside from your last comment about using black men as a cover, (for what, the mind boggles), I think you might be on to something, JimBryant.

      The non-mainstream, or, underground is littered with gay, male artists: Stephin Merritt, Owen Pallet, Jamie Stewart, Edward Droste, Mike Hadreas, and Joel Gibb to name a few; but in the mainstream they are practically non-existent or ridiculously milquetoast and safe for suburban moms: Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert. Also interesting to note, both of those guys are famous because of the same reality show.

      The mainstream still has a problem with articulate, strong, and challenging gay musical artists. Definitely something to think about.

      J Lo needs to cut it out, she looks good for 44 but she is not talented in the least and how can you be lip syncing and even your track sound bad? How is that possible?

      Miley Cyrus can actually sing but a 2 piece and a cat for a ballad?

      Gaga is trying everything and anything to get noticed, I appreciate the effort, but I’m still disinterested

      Haha, these comments are hilarious. People get so angry about the silliest things. Does Gaga take inspiration from past pop stars like Madonna? Of course. So does EVERYBODY. Nobody lives in a vacuum. It’s impossible to do a performance without drawing influence from somebody else. Madonna recycled and remixed ideas from the past into her performances. So does Gaga. So will every artist and performer from now until the end of the world.

      The Gaga/R. Kelly theatrical retelling of JFK was hilarious, well done, and 100% entertaining. So was watching a giant alien cat crying diamonds behind Miley. So great!

      You just did.

      Now, lets put Miley along side Faith Hill and see who can move the least while screaming er I mean singing. Could Miley be more desperate? And if the diamond s dripping from the kitten was a pimp on the Iconic award holder “late for another concert” Rihanna great. Or perhaps just a rip on Simon Cowholes why don’t you bring out the kittens critiques, equally great. Nontheless Miley needs to go in hiding for a bit lest she becomes an achy breaky foot note.

      Jim bryant: your comments on suppressing openly gay performers in music is especially troubling because the essence of music is creativity and the gay well is all but emptied quenching that thirst with nary a thank you.

      @jimbryant: Maybe that is because the only out and proud gay singer of any note is an inconsiderate ass that gets off at the thought of offending as many people as possible in his “perfomances.” Also, I am sorry if your whole world revolves around your homosexuality… eventually you will develop an actual life and outgrow that.

      @jimbryant: I would love to be a part of your world. You probably see a wonan walking down the street and run away. Your hatred of the opposite sex reeks much more of being an oppressed pussy whipped straight boy than an out and proud gay male.The reason that Glambert and otber gay stars have had limited success is that their personalities serve to isolate everyone including the gay community. You and Glambert have a lot in common. The rest of us do not desire to live our lives showing more hatred and stupidity than Westboro Baptist.
