Anonymous said: I am neutral when it comes to Gaga vs. Madonna...but i definitely think Madonna was using homosexuality as a tool to sell records, I mean even Gaga's video's seemed more genuine than this. *shrug*
No. Absolutely not. How is Madonna using homosexuality to sell records when her demographic has been homosexuals and women since her debut? So she has some hot models dancing in heels and making out a bit in her new video about her going dick crazy. She isn’t using anyone, she’s catering to her demographic.
The difference between Gaga and Madonna as gay icons is that Madonna never declared herself to be a gay icon, the gay community just looked to her as one. You’re telling me Gaga is more genuine about the gay community? She has been blatantly exploiting the gay community as a marketing tool for a while now. She hopped on the bisexual bandwagon even though she’s obviously obsessed over dick. Born this Way, a song she wrote in ten minutes (which is obvious given its lyrical depth), is a ridiculous and selfish use of the gay community to sell that record and that album. If you honestly think Madonna uses the gay community and Gaga doesn’t, you’re going to have to take a seat.
