Rufus Wainwright claims that Lady Gaga doesn't have one good song
The 38-year-old was speaking to Music Week about his new album, 'Out Of The Game,' when he confessed that its rather critical lyrics were inspired by his problems with the ‘Born This Way’ star:
“I totally admire her tenacity, her ambition and her strength of vision. There’s just not one good song there. People, especially gay men, are falling so hard for it."
Wainwright, who will play London’s Lyceum Theatre on April 30, went onto admit that he’s also not convinced by her self-empowering lyrics:
"Certain things that she says: 'Look at me. I was like you one day and now I’m this – and you can do it too.' I find it a bit disingenuous. We are in this somewhat sinister period and artists have got to kind of toughen up and be real. It's about conveying what’s inside us, as opposed to the return of the cone breasts. I find it predictable and boring."
Produced by Mark Ronson and featuring guest appearances from sister Martha, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ guitarist Nick Zinner and Sean Lennon, 'Out Of The Game' is released on Apr 23.
