Paying Homage or Swagger Jackin': The Lady GaGa Edition

In fashion there is a thin line between being inspired by someone’s style and completely jacking their swagger. Lady Gaga has been accused of ripping off Madonna’s entire persona, in particular through out her entire career. However, in this gallery we will compare and contrast various entertainers style with Lady Gaga’s.  And let’s just say Gaga is a repeat offender. I will lay out the evidence and I allow you make the final verdict.

    Wow lady gaga really needs to cop her own style or if she’s going to be a ca ca copy cat(nikki minage voice) then she should just add her own twist to it! Lol seriously!

    Yes, personally this here is a case closed, the proof is in the pudding or in the jacking rather. They try to make her out to be so unique and just an over the top entertainer. Nothing’s unique about stealing people’s swag.

    THANK YOU!!! People always act like Lady Gaga is some innovator on fashion! Look at how she has stolen so many of Kelis’ styles and let me remind you…Kelis is original and DOES NOT have a stylist. She is her OWN stylist. Let me see someone say Kelis is tryna copy Lady Gaga’s style I will send them straight to this page!

    Kelis one of my favorite artist and I had heard of Gaga copying her (and many others) style before but when I actually did the research. I felt ashame for her and her PR they need to be fired. You can’t pretend you were ‘inspired’ by this many different entertainers. You are swagga jacker at this point. I know her little monsters will be coming soon yelling off with her head but I could care less, lol. Mann, Kelis is a style icon. Gaga isn’t the only one to jock her Rihanna took her haircut & whole look & tried to claim it as her own. What I love about Kelis though. She’s always lightyears ahead of these chicks in the fashion game. They be jocking her style swag from 2-3 years ago. She’s a true trend-setter.
