Lady GaGa is not happy that she has been named an artist with the "Most Pretentious Album Ever", thanks to her latest effort "Born This Way". To show her annoyance, she includes an "eyeroll" in a tweet she posted to respond to her "winning."
"Oh the irony of winning 'Most Pretentious Album Ever' from none other than NME," the Mother Monster writes to her 19 million followers. The outlandish singer adds, "*eyeroll* I might laugh forever + then return to narcissism."
"Born This Way" is called pretentious by NME because GaGa "seemed to believe in her own hype, convinced that she had a message to share. Cue an album of unwieldy 'anthems' that couldn't mask the fact the fun had left the building." Ironically, NME gave the album 8/10 on its review.
The other artists who make to the NME top list include Terence Trent D'arby, Lou Reed, Metallica, KISS, The Smashing Pumpkins and Pete Townshend.
