Controversial GAGA jumps into the TOP 30 Safe songs list

May 19, 2011 by Ric Hansen

Music Notes

Gaga continues her “Madona like”  profile with her latest chart climbing song “Judas”.  The most controversial song on our Top 30 Safe Songs list,  parallels the 1989 hit by Madonna:  Like a Prayer”.   Catholics and

other religious organizations are up in arms, and want it banned. I would definitely avoid playing it at your CYO dance or Catholic schools.  It is not universally objectionable so it has made it to our Top 30.

GAGA was named by Forbes magazine as the world’s most powerful celebrity.  And today the announcement that the world’s biggest coffee chain will join with GAGA in  a PR lovefest, from now til June 3rd.  Beginning today, Starbucks will host a Gaga-infused scavenger hunt across its digital properties from Facebook to Twitter to Foursquare. Gaga fanatics can follow her exploits and search out clues. There are ga

ggles of prizes, but the top winner gets special access to a Lady Gaga concert during her 2012 world tour.  Gaga’s new CD, Born this Way will be released Monday May 23rd  AND  Starbucks customers in the U.S. will be able to stream Gaga’s new album, download her new song Edge of Glory and watch an exclusive video from the in-store Starbucks Digital Network.
