Lady GaGa and Michael Jackson Connection

Lady GaGa and Michael Jackson Connection

I thought I might dig a bit deeper about Lady GaGa in connection with Michael Jackson. I mean many have found strange ‘coincidences’ concerning Lady Gaga’s songs and videos and MJ biography, like the infamous “Paparazzi” video.

What bugged ME more is that why would a new celebrity, a newborn star complain ALREADY about the fame, the paparazzi? She has just started it all. I mean for her writing those song is weird. Even in case somebody else writes them – don’t they know that’s kind of off? You might have noticed her lyrics are peculiar in different ways. And videos are even more interesting and strange in a good and mysterious way, pretty symbolic, I’d say.

As for me, I KNOW artists never do anything for the sake of simply doing. Everything has its meaning. Everything has to be meaningful (even if you’re not lucky enough to grasp the implied meaning).

See, here’s what she said about her performance during an interview at gagadaily.com

Do you think it will be one of those defining moments people will remember at the VMAs?
I know it will. I sort of have this philosophy about things: there’s never a reason to do something unless it’s going to be memorable, unless it’s going to change things, unless it’s going to inspire a movement. With the song and with the performance, I hope to say something very grave about fame and the price of it.

Something grave? What?
You’ll have to see.

What are you going to wear?
I would say that the fashion for the performance is a representation of the most stoic and memorable martyrs of fame in history. It’s intended to be an iconic image that represents people. I think after watching the performance and maybe studying it after you watch it on YouTube, you’ll see the references and the symbols come through.

I am not going to discuss the symbolism of her VMA 2009 performance. There’s a lot of information already. You can read it here:

So, back to my point. I tried to find direct or indirect connection between MJ and Lady Gaga.

First thing I found was (the source – http://bit.ly/cC3rgG ):

“Poker Face” was written by RedOne and Gaga while the music has been produced by RedOne.

After that I followed the link to read about RedOne. (the source – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RedOne )

2008 proved to be another big year for RedOne with his work on “Just Dance” and “Poker Face“, both by Lady Gaga, and both garnering the No. 1 spot in several countries worldwide. In addition, RedOne produced seven tracks from New Kids on the Block’s album The Block, which debuted at No.2 on the Billboard 200. It was also announced that Michael Jackson hired RedOne to produce his new album. RedOne also lent his production talents on Swedish pop singer Darin’s album Flashback. On December 4, 2008, he received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance Recording for his production on singer Lady Gaga’sJust Dance.”

Interesting.

Then we go here to read the full RedOne discography (the source – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RedOne_production_discography )

How interesting. So he not only wrote so many songs for and with Lady Gaga but also helped to produce WE ARE THE WORLD 25 HAITI!

What’s next?

Probably you heard about it. I saw some articles like this but this one is more fresh. (the source – http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory?id=9623292)

Star Producer RedOne Eyes Michael Jackson Release

By Mike Collett-White

January 21, 2010

LONDON (Reuters) – Grammy-nominated producer RedOne, who helped Lady Gaga top charts around the world, believes that music he worked on with Michael Jackson before the singer’s death could yet be released.

The 37-year-old producer, born in Morocco and steeped in European pop and rock after spending several years in Sweden, recorded with the “king of pop” in Las Vegas in 2008 and 2009 and in Los Angeles in 2009, before Jackson’s death aged 50.

While the results are far from the finished product, RedOne, whose real name is Nadir Khayat, believes he has enough material to work on for a record, although any release would have to involve agreement with Jackson’s record label and estate.

“I have big plans,” he told Reuters at a recording studio in London, where he has been working with other artists.

“There is material that could come out (from the Jackson sessions),” he added.

“In case I’m going to release something, I would do it for charity, for something that he would have been proud of, because you always felt like everybody wanted to take advantage of him though his life,” said RedOne, considered one of the world’s top producers after his partnership with Lady Gaga.

Recalling his collaboration with Jackson, he said: “The music we were doing was good, really good … very energetic, uplifting. It’s sad that we never finished the material.

“Michael always has been focused on having hits, not having songs, so he always records a lot of songs and takes the best of them and that’s his formula which I love. We were doing good quality music and it’s never been finished.”

RedOne has been nominated for four Grammys — the music industry’s top honors — ahead of the January 31 ceremony, where stars will perform a tribute to Jackson.

RedOne said he was initially reluctant to work with Lady Gaga, who did not have a record contract when they first met.

It seems that MJ managed to work with practically everybody on WHATEVER before ‘dying’. Some articles say it was his new album, some say nothing.

The last line in that article is so offtopiс to me. Why would they in an artcile about RedOne  and MJ collaboration meantion that “RedOne said he was initially reluctant to work with Lady Gaga“? Does that mean someone PUSUADED him? LOL.

I’m not implying anything here. I just give food for brainwork. Maybe YOU will come up with some conlusion on this one. If someone somewhere has already analysed this, please, post a link in a comment.

Thank you for reading.

    Great work!
    I agree with you. I feel there is a connection. There’s no doubt Lady Gaga has an agenda, and that is to “out” the industry that held artists like MJ captive.
    Have u seen her video in Alice in Wonderland? That’ll give u more answers…

      hi, thank you for the video and your comment. Glad you support my idea. Just seems strange that they ‘talk’ about those things openly

    Lady’s gaga is not only signed to Sony but also to Akon’s company ( Akon , a friend of MJ’s). Maybe she doesn’t feel threatened in any way for talking about these things publicly. I also have a feeling that Sony has “changed”. Hence why the “estate” re-signed another deal with them… Maybe MJ has a little more “influence” in Sony then we realize. Have no proof, but something I’ve been wondering about…

    Lady gaga is not the only artist either that I believe is out there talking about these things.

    • April 29, 2010 at 10:09 pm

      sure thing
      she’s not the only one.
      But, i still wonder why all of them doing it all so openly…
