I hope she speaks again about how the power of her pussy produces her "art" and the moppet Thanksgiving special.

Lady Kaka is such a gimmick. Her overproduced pop music is zzzzzzz.

Same old game, year after year. Brooklyn Vegan starts hyping an obscure shitty band with repeated irrelevant posts starting around Christmas. Then voila! That shitty band is magically on the BV sxsw show bill. Congrats to the management and publicists involved with this year's winner: the front bottoms!

Lady Gaga deserves it and she is really a great singer. She's the best and fit for the role. Just that I'm her fan.

Nice "Peace" tattoo on his arm. How original. Just like the losers that not only put "Peace" tattoos on their arms, but "Heart" ones as well. Sad.

An inspiring keynote on how to sink millions into a failed promo cycle for a flop album and burst the bubble on a "legendary" 5-year career.

SXSW's began jumping the shark about 7 years ago. I distinctly remember noticing the decline in 2007. Each year since, it's rapidly declined into a corporate toilet of money. The only winners are the local economy of Austin, the major airlines, hotels, and corporate sponsors. The small and mid-level artists are the losers running on an empty tank of gas. It's sad, but its the reality.

If another person says "You going to South By", i'll Richard Swiftly kick them in the ball sack. SXSW is jam packed full of amateurs. It's NOT about the music. The music is just the wallpaper. I know this has been said time and time again … but let's face it - SXSW is worthless for artists. It had it's time, but now it's gone.

Lada Gaga as the keynote speaker signals the end of the original spirit of the so-called "festival".

Is that a picture of Lady Gaga? I always thought she was black. Who knew she was a whitey!?!

Whatever you think of her music, she has done more than any artist to advance the cause of marriage equality in America. When she came to Buffalo, NY she instructed the audience to call a pivotal state legislator and urge him to vote for marriage equality in NYS. The bill passed, and he was one of the "yeas." She is super savvy.

^^^^so neato! I'm sure she was 100% responsible for it!

She is so talented. Always reinventing herself every 5 seconds.

putting on a different cheap-ass wig is not reinventing yourself as an artist

I hope she shows her flap jack titties.

This is as bad as Tribeca Film Festival is now.

Lady Gaga has more city cred than most. This drives city guyz and dollz mad with jealousy!

Most city parentz dream about having a Lady Gaga-esque child.

She just needs a bold red lipstick with this outfit and it would look like an outtake from Beautiful Dirty Rich.
