“Gaga’s entire persona seems to question what’s expected of women.” ‘Lady’ with suggestions of gentility, sweetness…’Gaga’ with intimations of infantility, madness… “In fact, she exposes femininity as a sham in all sorts of ways. If the typically feminine woman is supposed to be simpering, seductive, weak, manipulated — essentially submissive – Gaga kicks against all these qualities.” “I don’t love Gaga — to have a really emotional response to her, you have to love surface, pure performance, you have to love the work of someone such as Andy Warhol… But I do admire her. I think she’s fascinating.”
