Not in any major sense. She doesn't outright tell society to fuck itself through her music.

So in your sense, you're right. She is rebellious for a Pop star. But if she wants to sing Pop then we hold her to Popular standards. Punny but true.

The fact is, if Federica de Boni went on stage wearing absoutaly nothing and starting singing metal while bleeding out her pussy because she doesn't have a tampon in people would cheer her on like the badass she is. Why? because the soul of metal is essentially "fuck you all, I don't care." and the fanbase she sings to is "Fuck you all, I don't care."

If Lady Gaga were to do that, her fanbase would probably be disgusted (except for the feminists). Because the soul of pop is essentially "what is popular today." And her fans won't view that as "what is popular today."

She has a good head on her shoulders, She played the rise of the internet like a boss to get to where she is. She really could be the next queen of pop. But she can't uphold the beliefs of rock and metal while trying to make pop music for the average pop listener or the average pop listener will move on to someone new.

Rock's "soul" isn't to be rebellious. What you're looking for is punk.

Elvis was pretty rebellious for his time period. Parents hated how the beatles made their daughters Vaginies tickle.

True that normal rock is nowadays considered "acceptable" by society. But the main genre's that split off of Rock n Roll still hold that "Fuck you society" rebellious streak it's parent had.

That's why Metal or punk bands can be still be considered "Rockstars" even if "Rock" isn't always in the genre name.

And another thing, why are you coming into a topic with an obvious widespread view of rock and pop and nitpicking into specific genres?

You gave me one example, Elvis. The Beatles example can be seen as how girls feel about One Direction today. Rock wasn't unaccepted by society and not everybody who was in a rock band, popular or not, advocated the rebellious fuck you attitude.

Rock music was band from radio airwaves until the 60's. The BBC STILL bands a lot of rack songs. And whatever they did symbolize at the time, overtime, Rebellion is what Rockstars began to symbolize. Go read a fucking wikipedia article. And No Nitpicking! We'll be here all night if you want to debate specifics for every detail of the rebellious side of the history of rock and roll.
So I will leave you with a few names and then leave for work.

Iron maiden
The Stranglers
Sex Pistols and/or Johnny Rotten
Kurt Cobain
do a google search on "most rebellious bands of all time" and you will get all the specific examples you could ever want from any time period 1950-2012.

Well as far as rebellion goes Lady Gaga does seem pretty rebellious. Not only fashionwise, but she makes her own style music, writes her own songs taking shots at politics religion and anti-gay people, she does a ton of charity work, etc.

I dont really listen to her music, but i respect her as an artist. One of the few "pop" stars that I do respect currently out there.

Well, he's right most americans don't. I do, I can say for most of my friends, they do but the stuff is expensive meaning alot of people son't have the opportunity to be introduced to it . When we go up to canada and maine we get like 10 bottles to bring back and some to give away.

i may not be american but i use both and they taste very similar
i prefer the artificial stuff because the bottle has a smaller so i don't get maple syrup everywhere

If you think they are similar you've never had the real stuff then.

I use artificial syrup because it's cheap. I have a few dozen bottles of the real deal with piece of walnuts and pecans suspended in it (and I sprinkled in some bacon to a few) hidden in the back of my pantry. It's like my china, I bring it out on special occasions. Makes it taste oh so much better those days too. Like God's glorious semen is raining down upon my tastebuds.

Come on, don't say everyone here all need instant gratification and don't only get the best every once in a while so they can truly appreciate it?

I get the real maple syrup from a local that makes his own. you don't need to generalize us all for what others do.
