Lady Gaga Outrages Fans by Congratulating AKB48

gaga-48

Japan’s little monsters have been outraged at Lady Gaga’s decision to “lower herself” to congratulating AKB48 on their 8th anniversary.

The missive from the lady herself:

With AKB48 being held in such scorn by fans of actual music and with Gaga herself enjoying such popularity in Japan, many seem nonplussed that she would even deign to acknowledge Japan’s “national idols”:

“People really hate AKB now, don’t they?”

“AKB are truly shameful.”

“She probably got a huge payoff behind the scenes, but I’m sure she’ll put it to good use.”

“It’s wonderful how she’ll do anything.”

“Basically any singer anywhere will do anything for money. Even Gaga.”

“Gaga seems happy enough about them, why the rage?”

“What did AKB do to deserve such bashing?”

“Making a mockery of music and CD sales?”

“If she didn’t like it she’d have turned it down.”

“I doubt very much she had any clue who AKB even are.”

“A bunch of media handlers would have just told her the usual lies about AKB48 being the most popular group in Japan and universally loved, so how was she to know?”

“They should criticise Gaga for whoring herself out to AKB like this.”

“Gaga, American superstar and a great singer and pianist, acknowledges a bunch of Korean-style lip-sync clone idols, barely recognised as artists even in Japan!”

“Of course she didn’t know who they were, she just took the money and read the lines.”

“She likely thought they were a popular and much loved Japanese group and she was doing Japanese music a service by acknowledging them.”

“It’s simple, Akimoto is just using the government’s Cool Japan program to promote AKB (he is the chairman of the program), he paid Gaga to promote AKB a bit, but since all her little monsters in Japan hate this sort of thing they are not happy at all. I couldn’t care less either way.”

“Normally you celebrate round numbers, an 8th year anniversary is a bit weird.”

“Tell the Americans this group is comprised of a bunch of synthetic cannabis smokers!”

“Gaga was on stage smoking marijuana only recently, fool…”

“AKB can’t be compared to Gaga! AKB are idols you pay for, Gaga is a top selling artist. Worlds of difference.”

“The way Japan uses overseas stars like this is pretty funny really.”

“AKB are just the shame of Japan.”

“Majestic Lady Gaga is magnanimous enough even to do this! Quit moaning about it you lot.”

“To think there was a group with fans even creepier than those of AKB…”

“Your faith in Gaga is lacking, little monsters. Everything Gaga does is ‘expression,’ even this.”

    When did AKB48 ever say their work is art? And significant? Have you stepped foot in Japan since 2009? If you have then you'd have to be blind not to see how significant they are there. Japan is one of the only music industries left in the world that actually makes money from sales and to rule Japan for going on 4 years now, sales wise, is pretty damned significant. Like them or not, they took the Morning Musume 'group of idols' concept and exploded it into something Hello Project could never even dream of. The last American musical act to dominate the market as completely as they do is probably Kiss and that was in the 1970's.

    At least in Gaga's case. In AKB88's case, I mean being significant to society in any way, as if they're any kind of positive influence.

    The funny thing is ppl think Lady GaGa gives a shit what *they* (AKB's fanbase) think about her lol.

    AKB's lineup are *Catholic Schoolgirls* in comparison to some of what GaGa's done in the past 10 years. And I get a big laugh whenever I hear of one of her newest highjinx.

    I think if some freak like Gaga shows up and congratulates you, I'd be insulted as well.

    "Unique" is just another word for "marketable". As in she's fake as they come, which makes her marketable to stupid teenagers.

    yep, imo the problem here is reversed. AKB should be the one ashamed after being congratulated by such a bizarre creature.

    Wow, a pop artist congratulating another pop artist. Big surprise. Also who fucking cares? Maybe its just how things are portrayed on this site, but are all Japanese fans (of anything) just pissy assholes who hate everything everyone does?

    Swear to god Japanese people are fucked in the head. I would know, I'm one of them. I hate japs for stupid shit like this. Why do people even care whether or not akb is good? People obviously buy their shit. People raging over something they have no control nor say in. Fucking dumb japs.

    The music industry, folks.

    It used to be about actual talent. Now you got this dim, lack of talent promoting dim talentless print and copy 'music makers'.

    How stomach churning must this be? Oh wait, it isn't. Because Gaga is an over rated freak of a bitch who will sell out for a packet of Chinese soy sauce.

    japanese music industy was pretty much dead as lest in terms of people paying for it before AKB48. AKB48 has totally turned that around with japan now spending and buying more physical CD/DVD than USA. AKB48 only claim..to make people feel good. No one know better than those in AKB48 that they not the best singers or dancers around or thier mainstream songs are anything but pop feel good songs {some of the songs they only sing in thier theaters are quite meaningful} after all they are IDOLs. But with the increase of sale of CD/DVD over the years they been around there also been a run off of $ allowing what you whould class as real singers to release their songs...and bottom line all singers sell themselves it is a 'job' after all.

    - hm, I wonder the "Korean-style" insult...I would understand "Korean" but "Korean-style" seems inaccurate; AKB have the most "Japanese" style among idols :o

    Gaga is a FAT DISGUSTING ITALIAN WHORE from Jew York. She's FAKE, just like AKB. She sold out to become famous just like every other big name artist. Which is exactly why you won't see her looking nerdy & signing begins a piano at concert halls. Anyone who thinks she's "real" is an idiot.

    Actually she is. Look up 'The Lady Is a Tramp' or her opening on SNL or various other performances. She's a great singer/musician who went to freaking Juilliard but due to our messed up world, she had to resort to playing the satirical character Lady Gaga to get anywhere because that is what sells.

    True artists shouldn't even crave attention like that to begin with, and Gaga and her like are the most hungry for attention that anyone can get. I've seen her "real" stuff anyways and she's basic, not worthy of universal acclaim like she makes herself out to be. And there are actual artists out there that prove that you don't have to go to desperate measures to get recognized, they just settle for some amount of humble success rather than being record breakers and singing as super bowls.

    And if she's just making one big elaborate joke with her style, then where's the punch-line? When do little girls stop taking her seriously and go, "oh I get it now, all that fucked up stuff we love about her is really just a satire!"

    Her voice is not that outstanding, she is a superstar but more due to her satirical character and not her music, more an "outstanding" fashioner and dresser than an outstanding musician.

    Finally, Gaga as a pianist.. I give her that, but that is it.

    Nah. Gaga has talent. Just not with her voice. She's good at writing and junk that's why she can spit out catchy songs. Her looks arent to good as well which is why she sticks with her costumes.

    She's basically Madonna without the talent. Madonna is actually quite a hell of a singer, Gaga is all controversy, no substance whatsoever.

    It doesn't take a genius to make a catchy, addictive-like-crack song at all. It just takes market research and marketing/brainwashing (a la top 10s radio charts that get people to hear the same songs no less than 20 times a day while they're just working at their jobs), or a fucking youtube account. I've been screwed in the head by idiotic songs from a lot of lucky dumbasses out there. The only cure from that is to counter it with some actual music that came from the heart and soul.

    Madonna is hotter too, even now. Well, her last few music videos that I've seen at least. Anything positive about Lady Gaga's "thing" that she does has been done before and better.

    Lmao, I doubt even she thinks her fashion is amazing, she always pokes fun at her bubble- and meat-outfits. I just think of her as a highly intelligent, intended and elaborate social experiment.

    Dressing like a drag queen & spreading rumors about herself just shows how starved for attention & making a quick buck she is. IF she had any integrity, she wouldn't performing in front of retarded teenage girls and dressing like that.
