Lady Gaga: ‘I Consider Myself to Have One of the Greatest Voices’

Lady Gaga

Think Lady Gaga’s a great vocalist? So does she. The pop superstar recently spoke on her vocal abilities and explained that compared to her peers, she’s got some of the best pipes in music today.

“Speaking purely from a musical standpoint, I think I am a great performer. I am a talented entertainer,” she told Vogue magazine. “I consider myself to have one of the greatest voices in the industry. I consider myself to be one of the greatest songwriters. I wouldn’t say that I am one of the greatest dancers, but I am really quite good at what I do.”

The “Born This Way” singer may brag about her skills, but she just looks at is as being secure with who she is. “I think it’s OK to be confident in yourself,” she continued, defending her title as pop’s reigning queen. “I have the world at my fingertips. I am not going to saunter around the stage doing pelvic thrusts and lip-synching. That’s not at all why I am in this.”

Gaga will premiere her new single “Born This Way” tomorrow, with plans to perform the song live at Sunday’s 53rd Annual Grammy Awards.

    YESSSSSS, i completely agree. i love britney spears but gaga can sing much better, and the only person i think on gagas level is BEYONCE, those two are the queens of this industry, dont agree? then look at the facts, album sales, etc.

    Why not?
    Guys, you have to hear her live to know her voice, which is great.
    Or just youtube some of her Monster Ball videos, especially the acoustic part of the show.
    You’ll be amazed.

    You got some nerve C*ckGa! I was open to listening to your song even after the several times you tried to make fun of Britney but this is just wrong. Britney even said in her twitter Q&A this morning that she liked you as an artist. Never has she outed you publically. This B*ITCH is just taking this to an entirely new level. TOO MUCH Oxygen must have gotten to her head because when i saw her live all she did was flop around the stage and curse at the audience! She sang good, yes, but not good enough to compare yourself to anyone out there right now because if you ask me, your studio songs sound nothing like you live songs which is terrible. Get a life and act humble like you claim to be. Your career will be no more in a couple of years and it will be because of the ego you HAVE obtained.

    say what u want about her, she writes her own beats and her own lyrics, got twice as much talent as 90% of the artists out there that have their stuff written and produced by someone else

  25. toast

    as i said on my facebook today…’i love how everything about lady gaga has to be an epic event…(sike!)’

    she is gettin to big for them hott pants she be wearin…lol…i saw her in concert…the girl can put on a show thats for sure…she can sing too..ill give her that…but she really isnt the shit shit…U ONLY GOT ONE AND A HALF ALBUMS OUT…UR FAR FROM A LEGEND HONEY!!!…and i know she is a voice for the gay community…and commend her for that…but now it seems like she is riding the cow while milking it to death…come on chick!…calm your little a** down!…and turn down the epicness please!!!

    btw…im not a hater…i enjoy attention just as much as everyone else…but im not gonna come out to and award show wearing dead, rotting meat just to prove…ummm…what exactly was she tryna prove?…oh thats right…that ur insane and that u waste good food…there are people in african who could have ate that dress for weeks…

    ok…wait…she knows exactly what the public wants…she writes, produces…and she has stage presence…but the greatest vocals? really now…come on..seriously?

  27. Kevin

    I may be wrong, but I believe that she meant she has some of the greatest influences on the public.

    Voice as in platform of change, and not as in vocal ability. Although I’m most likely wrong, she does have a fantastic voice. And if you’re one of those people still (it’s been over 2 years) talking about how she has a penis, that became lame quite a while ago. C’mon, and jump off the bandwagon.

  28. Tom

    She’s completely right. She DOES have one of the greatest voices in the industry, and she is far different from the manufactured, unoriginal pop stars like Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Kesha. As opposed to them, she writes all her songs, she comes up with the melodies, she co-produces on most of her tracks, and most importantly she is in complete control of her image, everything from her fashion to her concert sets to her epic live performances. She’s the best thing to happen to pop since Michael Jackson, and she’s more vocally and musically talented than Madonna ever was. She’s a true artist in every sense of the word and she doesn’t give a f*ck what people think. She just puts out her ideas through music and art and fashion and they become cornerstones of modern pop culture. She is a living legend, and she’s only been around for two years. Born This Way comes out tomorrow!

    “I consider myself to have one of the greatest voices in the industry.” Many critics agree with that assertion, and she didn’t say greatest of all time.

    I acknowledge Gaga’s talents, in all sorts of artistic life, and it’s true that she’s got an “efficient” (Commercial ? Lambda’s ear-friendly ? Your choice) voice, but I 1) personally think that her voice is not beautiful, but rather annoying and not harmonious at all 2) She’s far from having one of the most beautiful voices in the music business. Come on, she’s out talented (in term of voice technique) by most of the R&B female singers in the US.

    If her vision of industry is the constellation of 2011′s Superstars (Lady Gaga & Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Willow Smith, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Ke$ha, etc.), then yeah, she may have one of the greatest voices. But it stops just right there.

    Remember that everybody is free to think and/or feel whatever they want to think and/or feel. Peace, from France.

  38. chov55

    OF COURSE! IN THE WORLD OF POP she has one of the best voices right now. She ain’t Christina Aguilera, Mariah or Celine…but she sings better than almost every other pop star. I mean, look at Katy Perry & Ke$ha (both of them a total disaster). And do I really need to mention Britney?

    [Reply]

  39. Lisa

    Why the shade at Beyonce, GaGa? Beyonce is the only girl that does pelvic thrusts. GaGa is such a delusional hoe, her voice is average (for today’s standards I guess that’s exceptional), but she isn’t a good songwriter. My 5 year old niece can come up with her lyrics and I’ve yet to hear any stellar writing from her including album tracks. I want this girl to flop now, because she is too much. It’s one thing to be confident, but to constantly put yourself on a pedestal like you’re the sht when you’re not is quite funny. I like my performers to be confident, but GaGa is a stank hoe!

    Funny how someone called Sarah a hater for speaking the damn truth.

    Say what you want about Britney, but I’ll take a humble person over a cocky bitch like this. People who are great at what they do, do not need to continue telling the world about it. Insecure much?

    Hell, if it wasn’t for Britney and those before her, Gaga wouldn’t even be here. So Gaga, take a number and step back in line bitch.

    [Reply]

  42. oebie

    Her fame has gone gaga inside her head.

    For example, Mariah is already more than 20 years in the bussines and she still has a better voice and vocal range. Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J Blige, Kelly Clarkson. Even P!nk and Shakira are probably better!

    She is better than Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Britney….. what a competition LOL

    [Reply]

  43. Alice

    i think shes very talented, and awesome. i also live in the same city as her and i noe this is dumb, but i really want to see her. to tell u the truth, ive been lookin 4 her. c’mon, im only 12, but her songs r the only pop songs i have on my i pod. im serious, i listen to every song of hers and i loved it. i just reaally badly want to meet her…this isnt my real name and mail

    [Reply]

  44. oebie

    Oh yeah, don’t get me started to watch performances of Mariah in her early years versus these years of Gaga.

    Don’t get me wrong: I love gaga and her beats (okay music).

    She has a great live singing voice, and I agree that she is very great at what she does.
    Do you expect her to be like “My work is okay. It is good.”

    ..to slow songs her vocals are great but when performing onstage i mean performing (dancing with singing) she really finds it hard and there’s only 2 people i know who can do both onstage Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears

  51. Mike

    Please, Lady Gaga needs to shrink that big head of hers. At the end of the day, i’d rather go to a Britney or Katy performance than one of her disaster concerts with her wearing a bird costume or something. Gaga is ridiculous and the only reason she’s as famous as she is, is because of her outrageous fashion sense.

    [Reply]

  52. roro

    so what she’s got a great voice?
    beyonce does and she doesn’t go around parading it, beyonce’s been in the game more than 10 years and yet she’s still so much more humble
    it’s like she’s got kanye’s arrogance but her music isn’t 1/10th as good as kanye’s

    It’s good to have confidence. I won’t take that away from her. But what I will say is that her voice is lost under all the all the rest. So she cancels herself out. To be frank, if it was just her and a piano, no frills, no “extra”-ness – we wouldn’t know who she is. If you deny that then you’re in denial. Period.

    ahaha ! everyone wants to ear singers with great voices but everyone today listens to Kesha , Katy Perry, Rihanna or Justin Bieber.

    [Reply]

  59. HMM..

    Well, obviously Gaga has talent but I THINK she’s getting ahead of herself. I mean, its GREAT to be confident in yourself, but there’s a fine line between being confident and just being down right cocky. Lady Gaga CAN sing, but you never get to hear her singing talent in her songs because of the annoyingly loud and crazy beats. To be honest, I think she’s really overrated. Behind the crazy clothes and the HUGE ego, she’s just a normal girl which can sing, but not to everyones taste. I think when I listen to her music I am always gonna be shadowed by this cocky personality.

    @ Adem…I agree with everyone up there except for alicia keys… Beyonce, jennifer hudson, fantasia and Christina Aguilera can run circles around her. alicia keys can whisper and she struggles in live concerts. If it wasn’t for her piano, you would realize that alicia is not in the realm of those greats you listed.
