ABWW Stereotype Buster of the Day: Lady Ga Ga
Lady Ga Ga has positioned herself as the pop princess provocateur of new century. She has taken the “originality” of Madonna (which was actually taken form gay black men in Harlem) and replaced it with hooks that stick in your head like tumor. She is has an ingenious way of hyping celebrity instead to showcase her talents in a postmodern way that keeps her the talk of the town. Last week she showed up half naked (black studded bra and a leather jacket), got exceedingly drunk and gave the camera men that follow her around incessantly the finger. Of course her actions were covered in the press from here to Timbuktu. I can’t remember a black female celebrity (besides that whore-first-rapper second Lil Kim) acting in such a manner. If white female celebrities like Lindsey Lohan and Tara Reid, for example constantly make aggressive, unladylike behavior their cache and still get placed on the pedestal why do all black women have to bear the stereotype of crazy black woman, until proven innocent?
