See what happens when your product is way past the freshness date, and after you've dissed and discarded the gay fans who made you famous?
Someone like Lady Gaga who is smart, young, and talented (more so than a host of other pop divas over the last 20 years) comes along and steals your thunder, together with a whole new generation of gay boys (including Michael who is thoroughly smitten).
It also helps that she was at the rally in DC yesterday, someone who stands by her fans.
People diss her for being "freaky." After the last 8 years, what the fuck is normal anymore?
She's a little bit of the Force of Life after all that recollected death and grief on Shepard Day.
