    Lady Gaga is nothing but a copy cat and a fake and wen her fans find out who she really is they'll be really heartbroken that she did'nt mean a word of what she sings. I have to agree with suitepee

    Gaga writes songs about being yourself and its ok to be you, so why is she lady gaga and not stephanie or what ever the fuck here real name is. If shes so pro on its ok to be you why does she hide behind make up and costumes? Shes nothing but a media puppet.

    How can I pay an homage to something I didn't know existed in the first place?

    #1 how can she be a huge Bette fan & not know about the mermaid/wheelchair performance. I am not a huge Bette fan & even I knew about that.
    #2 so many of the things she wears or does are not original, meat dress...James St James did something very close to that.
    #3 being born out of an egg, Leigh Bowery had a human pop out of his stomach on stage.
    I could go on & on. Nothing original.

    Gaga is a drughead and is controlled by her "people". I believe her when she says she had no idea. She's clueless

    Kudos to Gaga for her reply. I have to say, I'm a huge Bette and Gaga fan. I love Bette, and I didn't know about her wheelchair performance. I knew about the mermaid, but I didn't know she performed it in wheelchair. And, so what if Gaga knew it, and shame on Better for calling out negatively. So, nobody can ever perform in mermaid dress and wheelchair again? Gaga was obviously paying an homage to Bette, just like she's done for David Bowie and Freddie Mercury. There's nothing wrong with that. Bette should be honored! That's probably why Gaga snubbed her! And Better realized it and back-tracked.

    First and forement @ BLAIZE...Christina A., Beyonce, & Miley have NEVER been edgy artist UNTIL GAGA came out. and the same can be said for sooo many other artist. (I'll let Katy Perry slide because shes been doing her OWN thing for a while) And FYI..IDK if you missed the media calling GAGA the "new madonna"..which totally gives her a pass to mimick. Theres a difference when you give credit where its due, and just bite off other people to make yourself seem more interesting.

    Lady Gaga is really ignorant. Also she won't take responsibility for anything. I still haven't heard any explanation from her about the charity money she (or her people) supposedly pocketed.
