Two boys discuss the state of pop music today (M.I.A., Lady GaGa, Uffie & Ke$ha)
Oscar:Have you heard the new Uffie song? (aka the good Ke$ha). What about M.I.A.'s new video? You know, aka the good Lady Gaga...
[Redacted]:M.I.A. is nothing like Gaga!
Oscar:Right, cause Gaga bastardized the idea... I mean, as in pop provocateurs.
[Redacted]:... or M.I.A. just didn't do it right? And is bitter? Wasn't M.I.A. supposed to retire? Why is she back?
Oscar:What she said about Gaga was spot on...
[Redacted]:Did you read the shit she talked about Gaga? It was desperate...
Oscar:It was true.
Oscar:Gaga sounding like 20-year-old Ibiza music.
[Redacted]:I mean, nobody has ever said that Gaga's music sounds revolutionary. It's produced by freaking Red One!
Oscar:"None of her music's reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is." Her music needs to step it up a notch... is all I'm sayin' ..."Bad Romance" was a great leap from.... "Boys, Boys, Boys."
[Redacted]:I love how M.I.A. is putting Gaga on blast for product placement. The first time I heard one of M.I.A.'s songs was in a car commercial!
Oscar:Right, because she originated product placement. "All I want to do is take your money."
[Redacted]:Product placement was originated in 2004...
[Redacted]:She's so revolutionary. I'm over her...
Oscar:You were never under her!
[Redacted]:I was for a hot minute! I loved "Galang"-era M.I.A. Gaga did what she did, better. That's evolution!
Oscar:You mean more financially successful? Is that you're definition of better?
[Redacted]:That's part of it. I also think Gaga is more aesthetically adventurous.
[Redacted]:It's more than that.
Oscar:More production. Visual... production. Have you ever seen M.I.A. live? I mean, she headlines festivals for a reason...
[Redacted]:So does Gaga...
Oscar:Lollapalooza is her first...
[Redacted]:No, she headlined Glastonbury.
[Redacted]:What the hell is this video??
Oscar:M.I.A.? It's performance art. I think you're... familiar?
[Redacted]:Ugh. It's too much. Why isn't Beyonce force-feeding those soldiers a honey bun? I don't get it.
Oscar:It's hard to watch... but you gotta.
[Redacted]:Nothing makes sense. It's too late for this!
