A Gag Reflex: Lady Gaga & the VMAs

I turned off the VMAs after Chelsea Handler's intro. The jokes, the music, the debasement - how desensitized we have become to vulgarity in all its forms.

Lady Gaga was the big winner last night. She has some of the catchiest hooks in music today, but that wasn't enough to keep Camille Paglia, writing in the Sunday Times, from skewering Ms. Gaga. Here's the link.

[FYI - I've been doing a lot more reading than writing lately. Lots of book reviews on the way.]

Lady Gaga is quiet an anomaly to say the least. :) I totally understand the more reading that writing...more ideas in my head than I have time to blog about!
