okay, i’m seeing several grown men (madonna fans) attacking 12 year olds (lady gaga fans) on youtube because they believe gaga “stole” some lyrics from one of sun ra’s record to use in her upcoming single, venus.
it bothers me that these grown ass men are allowed on the internet and spread their stupid ass logic. if someone references someone else’s work in their own work, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s plagiarism. i feel the need to explain that like i would explain to a fucking kindergartener because that’s how fucking idiotic these grown adults are…
[gaga lists sun ra as writers on ‘venus]
if they were at least 10% percent familiar with the meaning of plagiarism, they would know this is definitely not the fucking case, as gaga is literally giving sun ra writing credits. SAMPLING! THAT’S WHAT WE HUMAN BEINGS CALL IT, YOU FUCKING OBESE CHIMPS!!!
do you know who takes ENTIRE instrumentals and claims it as her own and does not bother to give credit? i’m gonna let you guess on this one.
sound familiar? it’s the EXACT instrumental used in one of madonna’s best songs, justify my love . now, this is a perfect example of plagiarism because no credit is given! plus there was a lawsuit filed against madonna and kravits, which they lost…
What are your expectations for Madonna's next album? I've noticed that she usually releases dance-centered albums like Hard Candy and MDNA and then a few toned-down albums like Ray of Light and American Life intermittently. What are you hoping for? No matter, I'm really excited to see what she does next!
Honestly, I hope Madonna’s next album is actually an album, and not just 12+ tracks put together on a CD. What I mean is that I would appreciate a “theme” album. For example:
'Like a Prayer' (her life confessions)
'Ray of Light' (spiritualism)
'American Life' (life confessions 2.0)
I don’t know, the theme could probably be something like, a look-back on her career. Maybe each track could represent an era, and it samples a single from said era.
Keep in mind that this is simply just a piece of my imagination. Knowing Madonna’s current situation, she’ll go ahead and release an MDNA 2.0. But hey, I can dream, right? I can also dream about her videos being released in 3D or 1080p, but we know that is most likely not happening, just as my idea. We’ll just have to wait and ee what she has for us :)
