The CFDA Awards were recently announced and Lady Gaga was given the Icon Award. I think Lady Gaga is great as she’s part of a wave of artists including Adam Lambert, Ke$ha and Katie Perry that is making music fun and outrageous again. Gaga is always controversial. But haven’t we seen it before? She is the Madonna of this generation.
Having grown up with 70s glam rock and 80s hair bands, I like seeing music and fashion intertwined like this again. No more sad grunge rock and mopey emo artists.
