Iman and Hel Do SNL: Lady Gaga- The End?

shes gone gone

So this is it my loves!! Tonight will determine if I bail out of our weekly SNL review. I have had it with bad humor and lame attempts at social commentary.  None of these actors are grabbing my attention and if given the option of sleep or watching this crap- Im gonna sleep.

Lady Gaga is fresh on the release of ArtPop, bitch got a new hip and is off the weed.  Should be rip raring to go right?  Well with her nasal stoner speaking voice and her none to engaging ‘wit’ I fear she is the perfect addition to the program which no longer holds my interest.  But for the sake of the site- one.. more time!  But if she disappoints, I’m outta here.

Lady Gaga is given the task of hostess AND musical act.  Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Justin Timberlake have been given the same honor.  Miley and Justin owned it.. Katy not so much but we did get a lot of boob jokes, so there’s that.

“Do What you Want” was one of the oddest performances I have seen in a great while.  Shes in ill-fitting clothes and I think the girl is calling in the ghost of Donna Summer. The idiotic Ice Capades dance was awkward ill timed and just plain bad.  She’s just Gaga.  Past prime, no longer the sensation and almost a bit embarrassing to watch.  Girl what the hell happened to your cool?  Between this crap entertainment and the god awful Bobby Moynihan- I’m done SNL, thanks for the memories.

As for Iman, “Was that R. Kelly? He looked healthier than the last time I saw him, terrified on stage at MSG as he claimed somebody had drawn a gun at him. And there he is simulating unstimulating sex with Gaga in (her not him) a sequined jumpsuit with as much cleavage as she can manage. “Do What U Want” is possibly the most ordinary song Lady Gaga has ever performed, a disco banger without much on its mind above the belt.However, for a very average song Gaga and band gave it a good going over. Better “Body” than “Apple employee” any day.

“In the post Helen does SNL world, Gaga mostly completely kills ‘Gypsy’ in her best Elton John impression, a powerful version rocking itself and SN: out of its stupor and ours. I really love the song and this is a terrific take on it, the “ay yi yi’s” the purest expression of her gifts.

“As for rock nyc covering SNL. I’ll do it if I’m home on a Saturday night but I tend to go to shows on Saturdays (next week I have Kweezy) so who knows how often I can make it. Finally, thanks Wheels for your stellar SNL services live from Connecticut for the past three seasons.”
