Why So Serious, Gaga?
Fresh off her Monster’s Ball tour of the world, [lastfm]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] hit the studios to finish her second album which was partially released last year titled, Fame Monster.
“I’ve had the pleasure of hearing some of GaGa’s new songs, and let me tell you b*tches, it’s a WHOLE NEW level of genius,” says Justin Tranter, frontman of [lastfm]Semi Precious Weapons[/lastfm], who has been Gaga’s main opening act on her global tour.

After her first album titled, The Fame, shattered ALL expectations, it catapulted her career and made her the most talked about woman in the music industry. She was even named one of Time magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People.
According to Gaga:
The message of the new music is now more bitter than it was before. Because the sweeter the cake, the more bitter the jelly can be.
Gaga is a real person, who has lived real things. She wears her heart on her sleeve. Maybe the bitter change in tune will be refreshing. Maybe it won’t.
If the new record kills on the charts, she should coin the phrase, “bitter is better.”
