Murphy about Gaga

Roisin Murphy has spoken about the American pop singer Lady Gaga, who appears to have borrowed a few fashion ideas from Roisin.

From herald.ie:

One Irishwoman who will definitely be crossing her [Lady Gaga] off the Christmas card list is former Moloko singer Roisin Murphy. She recently claimed that the pop sensation stole her iconic look from her. The Arklow-born singer stated: "She has copied my style, she took my shoulder pads and all that. Mind you she doesn't wear the bottom half!"

In addition, Roisin told the Daily Mail:

I met her about a year ago before she got really big and I had no clue that this was all going to happen. She wasn't wearing shoulder pads at the time, and I was. Lady Gaga is just a poor imitation of me.

Let's see what bigmouth Gaga will have to say to that!

Finally, was just thinking when is she going to say something about gaga.

It was taking too long, actually, J.
I don't like this Gaga, poor imitation of Róisín with poor songs, what it's worse...

Ex said...

I don't understand why it's impossible to love them both.

Anonymous said...

but why does Róisín feel the need to say stuff like 'she's a poor version of me'? i thought she was better than trash others. oh well...

matt said...

she's right, but it makes her sound bitter

yes, somehow it's disppointing to her stuff like that from Roisin. i mean, who cares...and daily mail? i'm not from UK, but it's a tabloid, right?maybe she didn't say that?

come on, Ro... you're better than trashing Gaga in the daily mail... it's disappointing, if true. give us the music and stay away from tabloid crap.

Anonymous said...

is this the kind of publicity she wants? talking crap about crap chart darlings? as above, disappointing.

chill pills, darlings. somebody had to say it, that woman is obnoxious.

Michael Kattenbeld said...

I don't think she actually said these things to trash her... mind you; Ro is a clever woman with a good sense of humor. In the end we all know who's music will live on in the future and it won't be gagag's... ;-)

about time! lady gaga is nothing but a hack! go get her roisin

Violatrix said...

I can't stand the Caca for this very reason. I don't care if Roisin said anything about her...I'll say it: Lady Caca is a knock off who needs to be knocked down. Her ego needs a reality check.

I completely agree with you Michael. In an interwiev with Diana Pernet (..Dont know how to link it;/) Roisin talked about GaGa with humor, and also said that it didn't bothers her....the interwiev is on youtube and the title is; Roisin Murphy on her first fashion inspirations.

roisin said about a year ago "I would probably make more money if I would wiggle", lady gaga is all wiggle and not even a worthy sound.

TanGleD said...

WELL, I CANNOT LISTEN AGAIN ALL THESE JOURNALISTS' BULLSHIT ABOUT ROISIN.

THEY ALWAYS TRY TO SHOW THAT SHE IS MEAN.

YOU SHOULD WATCH THE VIDEO INTERVIEW (above) WHERE SHE WAS ASKED ABOUT KYLIE AND LADY GAGA (min 7:55) AND YOU WILL SEE THAT SHE IS A VERY NICE WOMAN. I DON'T THINK SHE WOULD HAVE SPOKEN LIKE THAT FOR ANOTHER ARTIST.

Bjob said...

Bahaha. Obviously Roisin is a genius, but I love them both! GaGa is a rather good musician in my opinion. But Roisin is far superior.

Anonymous said...

i doubt she said it like that. they probably blew what she said in that old interview out of proportion.

Anonymous said...

Daily Mail blows everything out of proportion. She's to nice to say those nasty words. And the same to whoever writes this blog. Don't be mean.

Trust Roisin to speak her mind! Who could argue with what she says? Gaga is a style thief! Okay, the 'poor imitation' bit is a bit below the belt, but let's not forget that she's pregnant so she may be suffering from a few minor temper tantrums! ;)

Anonymous said...

bull...shit. she said wht she thought about gaga some time ago. why would she bitch about her all of a sudden? plus, if she said it, she's right, that woman needs to wake up and smell the coffee, she's hardly the second coming of pop, for god's sake.

Cedric said...

Can someone from the U.S. on here please kill that GaGa woman?! Thank you very much in advance.

...Laura said...

No creo que Roisin haya dicho eso. Estoy segura de que a Roisin nisiquiera le importa Lady Gaga, y si le importa no creo que lo exprese de esa manera...

Violatrix said...

Cedric, I think she's touring the world right now...it's a pandemic. CACA FLU!

Roisin is a very talented woman.Gaga is really talented too and has some great songs but i think she is trying to much to be something she is not..I've bought both Overpowered and Fame and I find Overpowered very inspired and deep disk and Fame very catchy[very good debut album]..at the Booklet gaga thanked andy warhol madonna david bowie..she should also thank Roisin Murphy and Kylie Minogue..because she copies them both...she is trying to be a fashion icon from the very beginning and that means you must have lots of outfits...which means lots of ideas some of them new some of them inspired by others..Roisin is right..she is copying her.

Anonymous said...

she already said she isn;t bothered by gaga. why would she trash her? she's not bipolar, is she? gaga is not talentless, actually she writes her stuff, plays piano and sings live really well. i don;t like her music but i'm not gonna deny her potential. she looks like a tranny, but the image helped her achieve her status, despite being taken from everyone out there, madonna, roisin, kylie, you name it.

to the author of this site - do you not feel guilty for posting and perpetuating this crap gossip? something to think about.

Nasya said...

Hate to break it to all of you Ro fans, but Gaga may have "stole" her fashion, but Roisin "stole" the fashion, that Gaga "stole", from someone else!! Stop making such a big deal about it Ro! Get over yourself and start to appreciate the fact that Gaga even WANTS to copy your rediculous fashion! Lady Gaga has some really good songs and Ro is just being a spoiled, cry baby over not being as famous!
