A couple weeks ago, following a short Twitter exchange, Meghan Vicks — who is one of the editors over at Gaga Stigmata, the amazing critical e-journal I totally would contribute to on a daily basis if only I could give up this annoying habit of sleeping — asked if I’d be willing to participate in a collaborative written discussion on Lady Gaga and feminism. Given my demonstrated interest in Gaga-analysis, I leapt at the chance to contribute. The end product includes some outstanding points of discussion on gender, bodies, objectification, (in)authenticity, crazy shoes, and the state of Camille Paglia’s lawn. I even got the chance to float my theory of Gaga as harbinger of a postgender cultural shift, and to revisit the “Telephone” crotch shot. It was a very good time.
