Beth Ditto: Lady Gaga is For Kids

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Style,

Beth DittoGossip singer Beth Ditto thinks Lady Gaga is important to "five year olds." The musician is a fan of the pop superstar but she doesn't think her songs can ever have as much of an impact on her adult fans as they do on children because it's completely new to the younger generation:

"I think her music is for five year olds. Like when I was five, for me it was Madonna, Cyndi Lauper and Michael Jackson. Those people were iconic. I'm 31 so that was like 26 years ago. I think that for the five year old watching MTV right now Lady Gaga is going to be an iconic person. In 20 years, the people who are here and talking to journalists will be like, 'Oh Lady Gaga changed my life, Nicki Minaj changed my life.' They'll be saying who influenced them and it will be Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, artists like that. I don't think it's as relevant when a 31-year-old is saying the same things."

Beth believes it is harder for artists, including Gaga, to reach and inspire older music fans because they have been influenced by so many different types of music already.
