It takes a lot of guts to go out there and stand out and be different especially the way Lady GaGa does it, without fear and a lot of courage says a lot about someone. Not everyone can pull it off and I understand why music giants such as Annie Lennox and Elton John would think Lady GaGa is IT!
Annie Lennox has taken to her blog to profess her love for pop wonder Lady Gaga. The former Eurythmics singer, whose successful solo career has spanned nearly two decades, called Gaga “groundbreaking.”
Recalling her own experience as an inventive performer, Lennox championed Gaga’s steady supply of costumes and set designs, as well as her collaboration with Elton John at the Grammys and her work with Cyndi Lauper on MAC ‘s Viva Glam campaign for safe sex and the eradication of AIDS, which the two artists recently discussed in a ‘Good Morning America’ interview.
In a post on her official site called “Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga” — a nod to Spoon‘s 2007 album — Lennox writes, “I have to say that I am completely entranced by Lady Gaga…She is completely off the scale on just about every level, and I’m just loving it!”
Lennox is also an activist, and recently raised AIDS awareness by performing in a t-shirt that read “HIV Positive” at the 2009 Rock Hall of Fame concerts, where she sang ‘Chain Of Fools’ with the song’s original singer, Aretha Franklin.
Lennox also noted Gaga’s “stamina and chutzpah,” adding, “I can tell you, that it takes f……..g HOURS and a TEAM to make up and dress up on a daily incarnation like that!!!”
Lennox, who is considered the most successful female UK artist of all time due to her combined work as a solo artist and as one half of the Eurythmics, declared that Gaga has “smashed the cookie-cutter tedium” of the current music scene. “She’s the real deal.”
