PhD in Lady Gaga. As vrea si eu…

Posted on: iunie 1, 2010

Am dat peste un blog misto, Gaga stigmata – unde se analizeaza clipurile si muzica lui Lady Gaga, de doua persoane din academia. So, daca vreti interpretari Gaga si feminism, gay, cyborg and much more, dati click si cititi. Si de incalzire, cateva randuri:

Feminism „What strikes me about Lady Gaga’s feminism is just how advanced it is.  This is going to sound pretty doublethinky, but what identifies it as advanced is the same thing that makes it easy to miss as feminism.  Of course, she is representing women as powerful, independent, even dangerous.  So in a sense this looks like the second wave move to lionize Woman and women (hear me roar!).  But her use of a setting which, in fiction, is almost always male, and her frightening, aggressive, often not-so-sexy sexuality do much more to blur the line between men and women than they do to reclaim and rehabilitate the idea of the female gender.   I won’t deny that plenty of times in her nearly ten-minute video she is deliberately and conventionally sexy.  Sex, sexiness, and sexuality have been vital parts of dancing and entertainment (at every part of the cultural spectrum) for too long to deny or overturn.  But there are also many scenes and outfits which, while highly sexual (cage dancing, bras and thongs, heavy makeup, tight and translucent clothes) are not really attractive, at least not to a conventional appetite.  After all, what about all her studs and spikes (often in worrisome places!)?  Lady Gaga is mixing and matching what usually function as unique calling cards for different genders, and in so doing  she removes the basis for prejudice and discrimination more effectively than if she simply praised women or calumniated men.”

Gay „Lady Gaga’s stance on homosexuality and the issues of prejudice and discrimination which confronts it today is well known.  Many fans have made really good points about how she deals with lesbianism and homosexuality in this video.  In contrast to other popular depictions of lesbianism in popular culture, Lady Gaga really does work to reclaim lesbianism for lesbians.  The butch or androgynous depiction of many women in the prison scene, most particularly the one Lady Gaga kisses, represents a lesbianism that is definitely not for the benefit of a male viewer.  Often, lesbianism is carefully represented to be as arousing for straight men as possible.  This ranges from pornography to „I Kissed A Girl”, and while I’m not here to shoot down either one of those (I tend to believe that the problems with both are more with how they’re viewed and what mindset has produced them, and that both could appear in a healthier, less-exploitative atmosphere without major changes to the texts themselves), „Telephone” can definitely be said to do a least a little real, emancipatory work on this front.  While making a hot buck of course – no one here is pretending that angle doesn’t exist.”

ps: daca chiar vreti doctorat, nu cred ca va accepta nimeni in romania pe tema asta:P
