INDIA ARIE NO LIKE GAGA????

Well...this is interesting. popcorn I will listen to whatever India has to say about whoever. This child never bores...right or wrong.




India claimed her issue wasn’t with the the nudity in the video so much as the dark elements and unspoken back story that disturbed her. She also said Gaga’s influence and ability to turn the taboo into trend were also troubling. Here are the rest of her tweets:

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. India isn't the first to think this about Lady GaGa.

And why do some of her posts look like she's just been introduced to the English vocabulary.
This woman is an amazing writer. Come on, now. I'm taking grammatical responsibility.razz

I expect everything that comes out of India to be poetry. lol

I don't like India. All her shit sounds the same and she sings about the same shit that no one cares about. Erykah Badu is a much better version of India. Why India is so bitter is beyond me, but chick needs to give it a rest.

Are you saying she's bitter based on what she has said about Lady Gaga? Would that mean that anybody who expresses their opinion about another artist, whether they are an artist themselves, is bitter? Or, is it possible that they are not bitter yet they have things they don't like about something?

I want to know what these "dark" undertones are!

Aside from a few cuss-words, the 'Telephone' video could have been a Muppet Show sketch circa 1979.

Yes, there is snogging, a bit of flesh and mass homicide - but it's just so cartoon-like and silly.

She basically just copied what Whitney already said.

And then let me add that that the people who are making calls are people who arent doing anything different in their own music other than the same tired thing they have been doing since they first came out....maybe if they pushed themselves to be different everytime they came out they would not have anything to say.
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

I love India but all art should be respected. Not just the self righteous type. My band opened for her a few years back. India has a flawless voice and is a good guitar player. However she is a one trick pony. She sings about the downtrodden and self upliftment and thats it. To really become a great you have to take risk which she doesn't at all. I am not a big Lady Gaga fan but she pushes the envelope which I respect.

EYE heart INDIA

If the music was the most important thing(as it should be), not silly visual images and these stupid fuckin videos, she'd be a much bigger star.

This is why artist who have real musical talent but not the "look" or "image" companies want, never see the light of day.

The result is the garbage you now hear on your radio and see on MTV.
Well maybe not MTV. They stopped playing music years ago smile

--Strange how one of the most musically talented people of all time(Michael Joseph Jackson) made the music video more important than the music itself.


Fate it seems, is not without a sense of irony.

I forgot about that. Was a bit of a travesty though. She may very well be bitter but perhaps it's somewhat justified. shrug

why doesn't she just go write another song about her hair and the rest of us will go back to not bothering to wonder what India Arie (excuse me India.Arie) likes and doesn't like.

Has India ever spoken out about losing those Grammys to Alicia?
To be honest, in my eyes, India and Alicia have the same amount of talent

She still talked about that when she was interviewed by Mo'Nique a few months ago.
