Lady Gaga Was Never Going to Be the Next Julian Casablancas

One of the things that made me laugh the hardest whilst reading the New York Magazine feature on the making of Lady Gaga was the fact that La Gaga was more or less discovered because circa 2006, a producer named Rob Fusari was “interested in locating a female singer to front a band like the Strokes.”

After hearing her sing, Fusari told NY Mag that he noticed “she didn’t have that kind of undersinging character voice of Julian Casblancas” and immediately “dropped the Strokes thing right away.”

Sorry, but I find this whole thing hilarious.
