I like lady gaga and was reading about her on wikpedia and discovered that the name Lady Gaga is directly Queen influenced. A producer thought she had a Freddie Mercury type of delivery and started calling her Lady Gaga based off of Roger Taylors, Ragio Gaga. How many other people knew that?

Yeah, i had heard that but had vaguely assumed she had chosen her name herself.  And I'm too lazy to go searching for more info about it!  :)

If it suits them, Maylor will soon claim she was Freddie's favourite singer.

I did know that, and I'd add that I think she's one of the most gifted, substantial, self aware and ambitious women to have come out of the pop scene in ages.

Yep I knew that, it was kinda obvious & she said so on the chat show Jonathon Ross & franky its's an insult to Queen (IMO), it actaully really put me off the song 'Radio Gaga' for a while...I just dont like her music at all nor her vidios.

Couldn't give a fuck about her.  If she is a real artist, we'll find out in a few years once she gets the gumption to make something that isn't dreck.

Please tell me this is a joke. Gifted? Substantial?!! I'll grant you that she beats The Backstreet Boys and the likes, but that's about it.

I always thought her name is from Radio GaGa, but I never cared enough to check it

I don't care much for Lady Ga Ga myself,  but I suppose it's a nod of recognition in the right direction that she likes Queen.

Anyway, Here is a  Queen/Ga Ga  Mashup.   I think it works :-

What did I win? I was never interested in whether they stopped working together or not, it's not my problem.

Anyway, even if my comments are repetitive, Roger told me it was Freddie's favourite catchphrase. So, to honour him, I'll keep posting it.



John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

First of all, it's not a joke. Second of all, I hope you're right anyway ;)

After all, Roger told me you're Freddie's favourite fortuneteller.

I really don't like her. But do you think it's a bit odd  that recent "pop stars" recently appointed Queen or Freddie as a big influence? Mika, Katy Perry, now Lady Gaga.

The Queen influence is so vast. They influenced artists as diverse as Metallica, Muse and Lady Gaga.

They even influenced the muppets! Not to mention Crazy Frog...

i knew that. i was actually very angry. because, as we all know. Lady GaGa is CRAP compared to Freddie Mercury. Sorry to you Lady GaGa fans, this is just me.

Lady Gaga (*Ga Ga, that tart) is a rubbish artist, a shit singer, and her songs aren't much beyond "How can I convey that I like to have sex to people?" Plus one of her eyes is off and that bugs the hell out of me.

Now, if the rumours of her being a hermaphrodite are true... well, then at least she'll have one interesting quality about her, yeah?

Of course, I'm not supposed to be a tyrant with my views, I always say give 'em a fair chance. I don't much like Adam Bolton, and even if Brian does then all I can do is just accept that for what it is.

At least that Lambert kid can sing- what's with Lady Gaga? She like.. talk-sings through half her crap.

And (Yes, I will start my sentence with and) I CERTAINLY don't like her saying she was influenced by Queen- because I don't hear it. Yes, Freddie was a viciously sexual character, and he had some sexual songs, but Gaga sort of over-kills it. No chase, y'know? I find it rather dull, and lord does it get tiring with every song being "I like sex, a whole lot." (Which is still more barable than her damn song about the Paparazzi. She's been famous, what, an odd year or two?)
