lie to me

i am so drawn to these self-made people-as-art people. it's such a commitment, and so...i don't know....i just LOVE it that they are so synthetically authentic. or, they commit so wholly to this persona, this unreality. why do i love this? i don't know. i think it's beautiful; it's art, it's fantasy, it's mysterious. "POKER FACE" is a stupid song, but who cares. Look what she says in monday's nytimes:
"Lady Gaga is a lie,” she insisted. “I am a lie, and every day I kill to make it true.”

it's brave, heroic. to me: it's liberating. also: inspiring, idealistic, original, interesting. life is mystery, right? people are mysteries. self is mystery. by admitting everything she says and is is a lie---that's the ultimate telling of the truth. how cool is that. (btw, nonsequitur--ruth rendell mysteries are the BEST. )
