Rufus Wainwright says Lady Gaga has no good songs

The singer revealed that the harsher lyrics on his new album are aimed at the pop star.

Singer Songwriter Rufus Wainwright has revealed that Lady Gaga has inspired the lyrics of his new album, but not in the way you may think.

Rather than a complimentary inspiration, Wainwright has said that the critical lyrics on the album are all down to Gaga and the fact that she hasn’t got a good song in his opinion.

In an interview with Music Week, he said, "I think a lot of it has to do with Lady Gaga, to be honest. I totally admire her tenacity, her ambition and her strength of vision. There’s just not one good song there. People, especially gay men, are falling so hard for it."

He went on: "Certain things that she says: 'Look at me. I was like you one day and now I’m this – and you can do it too.' I find it a bit disingenuous. We are in this somewhat sinister period and artists have got to kind of toughen up and be real. It's about conveying what’s inside us, as opposed to the return of the cone breasts. I find it predictable and boring."

The singer’s new album Out of The Game features appearances by Martha Wainwright, Sean Lennon and Nick Zinner and is released on April 23rd.
