MI DEBATE | Con el arrollador éxito que está cosechando con "A Star Is Born", ¿Lady Gaga volvió a la cima? ¿Finalmente se recuperó del flop?
Tyrant Thee Stallion posted a topic in Música InternacionalDespués del fracaso comercial y artístico de ARTPOP, Gaga comenzó a tomar un camino distinto en su carrera para limpiar su imagen: Cheek To Cheek + un nuevo grammy, el aplaudido medley de The Sound of Music, nominada a los Oscars + otra performance muy comentada, brilló cantando el himno nacional en el Super Bowl y un año después hizo el Halftime Show más visto de la historia. Ahora está recibiendo excelentes críticas en su debut como actriz de cine. — "Shallow", el primer single del soundtrack de A Star Is Born está #5 en el Hot 100 con muy buenas ventas digitales (alrededor de 200k) y teniendo buen desempeño en Spotify (#5 WW, #10 US), el mejor que ha tenido Gaga en su carrera hasta ahora de hecho. — El top 4 ENTERO del chart Digital Songs de Billboard es de ella. Es la primera vez que alguien logra hacerlo, hasta ahora sólo había pasado con los dos primeros lugares (ella misma lo hizo en años anteriores). — El soundtrack debutó #1 en el Billboard 200 con 221k y va a quedarse en la misma posición la segunda semana vendiendo 125k aprox. — Está #1 en el chart Artists 100 de Billboard — Su actuación ha recibido excelentes críticas y muchos creen que podría ser nominada a Mejor Actriz en los Oscars. ¿Crees que se cumplió la profecía de Paparazzi?
MI SALFATE | "LA PROFECÍA DE PAPARAZZI": ¿Crees que Lady Gaga predijo todo lo que pasaría en su carrera con el recordado video de Paparazzi?
Tyrant Thee Stallion posted a topic in Música InternacionalEn el video Lady Gaga interpreta a una exitosísima celebridad usada por un novio que saca provecho de ella, ve su fama hundida después de un accidente que la deja en silla de ruedas, los medios la tratan de acabada, deja de ser "Gaga" y al final el mundo vuelve a amarla. Estos puntos coincidirían con una de sus ex parejas, sus problemas con las drogas, su problema en la cadera, el flop de ARTPOP, su disco jazz en el que ya no quería ser Gaga y finalmente su aclamada performance en los Oscars/Super Bowl, etc ¿Crees en esta teoría o es una kelokura más de los Little Monsters?
In 2011, Lady Gaga released “You & I,” a honky-tonk ballad that chimed more with Shania Twain and country rock musical numbers than with her pop beginnings. With that in mind, students of Gaga were not entirely surprised by her last full-length album, 2016’s Joanne. Talked up as a sudden about-turn search for “authenticity” (please, no), the signs had long been there that Gaga would strip down to rootsy, showtune basics like a Broadway Dolly Parton. Joanne necessarily bled into what comes now: her lead role in Bradley Cooper’s remake of A Star Is Born. For Gaga, talk of “authenticity” is useless. Gaga has always been a theatrical phenom; hers is a complete blurring of life and show. A star, she was born. “Shallow,” the original theme of A Star Is Born, may prove to be Gaga’s own apex in the spotlight, her completion into superstar of charts and screen. “Shallow” is a slow-building conversation around picked guitar, beginning with Bradley Cooper’s inviting “tell me something, girl.” He doesn’t quite have the deep growl of a Kris Kristofferson (who played opposite Barbra Streisand in the 1976 film) but pulls off the earnestness required to hand over to his far superior singing partner; his restraint recognizes that it’s not his moment to shine but hers. Gaga carries everything here with familiar battleworn strength; her voice begins sturdy and climbs to a heady wail. Eventually she shatters the ceiling, coursing across a body of drums and pedal steel guitar, belting, “We’re far from the shallow now.” Her performance suggests A Star Is Born will be a tale of grit, determination, and high-stakes drama. What else have we come to expect from Lady Gaga? “Shallow,” the Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga duet from the forthcoming remake of A Star Is Born, opens with an acoustic guitar that recalls strumming from the Peak Power Ballad Era — think the percussive nature of “More Than Words” and the filigrees of “I Remember You,” with a bit of “To Be With You” shagginess thrown in for good measure; Cooper’s slightly raspy voice brings to mind today’s country-pop singers in Unplugged mode. But when Lady Gaga — playing Ally, the ingenue who gets drawn in by Cooper’s grizzled rocker — comes in to cheers, “Shallow” explodes into colors, turning a simple love song into high drama. Rock Powerhouse Gaga is one of her best personas, allowing her to channel her theater-kid background and pop-star present simultaneously; “Shallow” lets her not just revel but sound like she’s bathing in it, from the ovation accompanying her arrival to her final repetition of the chorus. The key moment, of course, is Gaga’s 17-second run at the song’s bridge, a vocal triumph that future generations will study. The musicians crouch into their starting blocks at 2:25, and two seconds later, she fires the starter’s pistol, teasing what’s to come with a breathy gasp; her voice then opens, and opens more, until she’s seemingly threatening to swallow the entire stage whole, sustaining its triumphant ending note before crashing back into its Bic lighter-worthy chorus. Cooper’s somewhere in there, too, but Gaga steals the show as easily in Hollywood as she does in pop. What an affecting ballad, power-pop duet, statement of purpose and major Hollywood moment for these two incredibly talented individuals. We’ll have a full review of the film soon, but we’re just gonna say this: Both Cooper and Gaga completely disappear into their roles. The power and energy of Gaga’s voice is totally present in this clip, but there’s less of her IRL bombast, which makes songs like “Bad Romance” so distinctive. Ally (her character’s name) couldn’t be more different from Mother Monster. “Shallow” is a massive, roaring rock song with a pop garnish; it’s actually difficult to compare the music to that of any particular artist. It sounds like it could be an earlier-career Miley Cyrus track, but also like it could have been written by Carly Simon or Stevie Nicks or Bonnie Raitt maybe? We don’t know. Just listen and decide for yourself. Lady Gaga's constant reinvention has never felt arch; instead, it takes frequent detours off pop music's highway. Her characters have permeated music, but in a new version of the film A Star Is Born, she plays Ally, an unknown singer-songwriter who meets Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper). He wants to make her a star — yet another character for Gaga to inhabit while re-orbiting her own music. "Shallow" sets the stage for a quiet, reflective country croon, the recording opting to keep in audience noise and their rapturous response. Bradley Cooper, with a sweet and amiable set of pipes, trades verses with Gaga about finding more, wanting more out of life and lovers. But then Gaga's theater kid comes roaring in at the chorus: "I'm off the deep end, watch as I dive in / I'll never meet the ground," growling the last word as if every rejection, every ex, every barrier embodies it. Beyond the shallow end of life, they embrace the deep. If this song doesn't give you chills, I feel bad for you. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper give an unbelievable performance in the song "Shallow" for A Star Is Born, creating a heartfelt, moving track that deserves an award. No, all the awards. Cooper's voice is great. Lady Gaga is transcendent. And yes, this the song with the famous Lady Gaga vocal. + The New York Times: The first song from the upcoming remake of “A Star Is Born,” written and directed by Bradley Cooper, is a good, old-fashioned, sound-of-the-1970s, gumption-of-the-1980s, high-treacle-higher-pomp roots ballad. Mr. Cooper is a fine singer, fine as in adequate. It’s Lady Gaga who throbs intensely here, leaning deep into the natural husk of her voice, and swapping her ordinary costume for a different type of polish, one that reveals more than it hides. Screen Crush: It’s the best moment of the film – honestly, a top contender for one of the single best movie moments of 2018. Awards Circuit: The song is the presumed frontrunner for this year’s Best Original Song. One of Geek: Shallow is the first destined-to-be hit song recorded from A Star is Born. Entertainment.ie: Full song 'Shallow' from 'A Star is Born' is mind-blowingly good Birth Movie Death: Let Lady Gaga Uplift Your Spirits With A STAR IS BORN’s “Shallow” Pedestrian: Lady Gaga Finally Blesses Us With That Emotional Duet From ‘A Star Is Born’
The "Just Dance" singer's meteoric rise to celebrity status not only defined the trajectory of Lady Gaga's career, but reimagined the way that up-and-coming pop musicians establish themselves as industry mainstays. When Lady Gaga smashed into the music scene back in 2008, people were naturally taken aback. Here was an eccentric, diva-like pop singer operating under a mysterious pseudonym that managed to score four top ten hits off of a debut album. But after just a couple years, and a number of changes -- both aesthetic and artistic -- Lady Gaga had become an artist synonymous with ultra-stardom. She caught the world’s attention with “Just Dance” and “Poker Face,” her first two singles and subsequently her two most successful Hot 100 hits, both topping the chart. Her iconic videos for songs like “LoveGame” and “Paparazzi,” and the shocking performance of the latter at the 2009 VMAs, only solidified her notoriety. In stunningly short period of time, Gaga had not only broken into the mainstream, but defied expectations of what was allowed for pop stars of the 2000s. Now, in the decade since Gaga’s inaugural album The Fame was first released (on Aug. 19, 2008 -- ten years ago Sunday), the “Bad Romance” singer’s stardom has waxed and waned. After three albums of anomalous, personality-driven pop bangers, Gaga released ARTPOP, a critically and commercially underwhelming set that saw the singer’s fame reach a new low. But Gaga reinvented her own image and sound, releasing two albums (Cheek to Cheek and Joanne) that found success diverging from the edgy electro-pop path she’d made for herself, while reminding fans the number of classic hits she'd already amassed during her gig at halftime of Super Bowl LI. She's still a force in popular music, though may never be the trailblazing star she was on her first album again. But no matter what career paths Gaga takes, The Fame will always serve as the album that not only introduced the world to one of the most ubiquitous pop stars of the 21st century, but as a redefinition of how artists cross over to the mainstream. While outlets and critics have claimed since her debut that the star is a carbon copy of Madonna, it has become clear in the years since that Gaga’s skyrocket to fame was a phenomenon unlike anything modern pop culture had previously seen. Since its 2008 release, The Fame has served as a template for up-and-coming artists on how to achieve status and attention within the pop music milieu. For some, the path has led to considerable top 40 success. But for many, Gaga’s initial rise to repute has proven to be nearly inimitable. Part of what made Gaga so endlessly fascinating to the public was the air of celebrity she cultivated with just her first album, as a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy. The Fame embodied what being famous felt like, even when Gaga herself had not achieved fame until after the album’s release. She strutted into pop culture as a fully-realized star, exuding confidence and prima donna status before even earning public permission to do so. She forced people to turn their heads and wonder if they had missed something: Who is this person? What is she doing? Has she been here this whole time, or is everyone else just as confused as I am? One artist who has come the closest to replicating Gaga’s level of alt-stardom is Sia, the world-renowned pop singer-songwriter. But context is key — before being launched into fame with guest turns on David Gueta's “Titanium” and Flo Rida's "Wild Ones," Sia had a long career as an indie recording artist, achieving a cult celebrity without truly breaking through to the mainstream. It wasn't until her sixth album 1000 Forms of Fear, that set's smash hit "Chandelier," and her subsequent decision to shield her face using various long-banged wigs, that she became a phenomenon. However, even with a number of viral music videos and hit singles (including a Hot 100 No. 1 hit with "Cheap Thrills"), Sia never quite reached the commercial consistency of early Gaga -- where every single and video became an event -- with new releases just as likely to miss the Hot 100 altogether as to top it. Even seasoned pop veterans have taken elements of what Gaga did in 2008 and incorporated them into their own acts. Ahead of the release of her 2010 album Bionic, Christina Aguilera adopted a fashion sense and persona resembling Gaga, causing public speculation over whether or not she was copying the new star. When her album was released, critics panned it for what was perceived as a cheap attempt to capitalize on the rising popularity of future-focused dance-pop and celebrity mystery. Ultimately, Gaga’s instant acclaim may be perceived as almost accidental, but it’s simply not the case. Even the title of The Fame shows that Gaga and her influential producers knew exactly what they were doing -- crafting hype, personality and undeniable radio-killers to shoot this once unknown singer by the name of Stefani Germanotta into the bloodstream of pop music. As the idol prepares her heavily anticipated sixth studio album and an equally hyped residency in Las Vegas, it’s clear that The Fame not only changed the course of Gaga’s career, but corrected the course of modern pop music for generations to come.
