I bought the MP3 download version of Lady Gaga's new album yesterday when it was 99 cents on Amazon.com. Chris, I see you did, too. Thankfully, it was my first exposure to her, so there was no real expectation. I liked it well enough, made me curious enough to possibly try her other stuff out. I say it was my first exposure, but I've listened to clips before, and there was something about her voice that always prevented me from giving her a chance.
I haven't seen any of her more recent controversial fashion choices, but I'll always give her props for her kermit outfit
