Let me educate you: art in its purest form represents the artist as much at it represents its public. Million Reasons is a personal song, yet speaks to you in a universal language. You are not supposed to like it but you are not supposed to compare it to the incomparable for the sake of an argument when it's not needed. This album has no analog in Gaga's discography and if you are to compare it, you should do so by using other examples which in this case are timeless records sung by talented artist. Therefore, Joanne is already classic.
The performance took risks and was memorable unlike all her previous performances were she did the cute happy stuff. That **** went unappreciated and now that shes trying something different shes reductive?
If her performance was reductive then so is every single horror film ever created.
The weird thing is that Nicki is actually talented (she seemed like a breath of fresh at first when she stole all the songs on which she was featured) and there are little flashes of brilliance here and there (Monster)...which makes her current incarnation all the more disappointing.
