I don't hate her. I'm not a big fan of her music, but that has nothing to do with her. I'm not fond of a lot of modern pop music or basically stuff that a computer spits out. I have more admiration for those who can play instruments. Still I realize that my type of music is not going to impress the average 12 year old girl today and I suspect that is main target audience of Lady Gaga. Also todays pop artist are required to dance and razzle dazzle more and it is hard to do that if one is playing drums or guitar. As a "razzle dazzle" artist, Lady Gaga is quite good.
