I sometimes wonder what kind of livelihood we humans enjoyed before the entrance of Lady Gaga onto the world stage. How did I get through my long runs without the rhythms of “Pokerface,” “Just Dance,” “Bad Romance” and “Telephone?” Who did I look to as my queer superhero (“President Obama, aaaaaaareeeee you liiiiiiisteningggggg!?”) And how was a’cappella ever fun without our over-the-top queen?
While many in the queer community have done everything they can to claim Gaga as their own, it looks like the a’cappella constituency has embraced Miss Bluffin’ Muffin too. And I love it! Please enjoy this video of the University of Oregon’s On the Rocks all male a’cappella remaking their art through GAGA:
