LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The death of singer Lina Morgana (photo and video below) was the birth of Lady GaGa by Stefani Germanotta, claims Morgana’s mother. Lina Morgana reports about Stefani Germanotta’s creation of Lady GaGa are consistent with those by Rob Fusari against Germanotta.
In March 2010, Stefani Germanotta was sued by Rob Fusari who claimed Germanotta changed her music from rock to dance beats because of him. Today, Yana Morgana, mother of deceased Lina Morgana, claims her daughter’s stage act was ripped by the Germanotta from Morgana. Yana claims Germanotta was a rich girl who stole a dead person’s stage act.
And yet, there is something peculiar about both reports – the notion of creation and the hunt for damages.
First, Morgana’s claim reminds us of the Aguilera-GaGa dispute. As recently as this year, the feud remained in full force claiming that music and styling had been jacked by Aguilera’s camp from GaGa. It was a topic brought up more often by GaGa’s camp than Aguilera’s.
Yet, critics have said that GaGa’s look is nothing unique. While entertaining, Morgana and GaGa following countless others like Grace Jones who have turned music into stage spectacle. Yet Germanotta’s camp used the fuel of the Aguilera-GaGa dispute as a publicity vehicle for over a year. Whether you agreed with Aguilera or GaGa, that “controversy” was the core to the publicity machine that worked for GaGa.
Second, what makes the Morgana allegations unclear is that her mother doesn’t tell New York news of any legal dispute with GaGa. Rather, Morgana’s mother says she intends to release music the two girls pre-GaGa creation authored together. GaGa’s camp has yet to comment.
Fusari on the other hand did co-write GaGa songs “Paparazzi” and “Beautiful, Dirty, Rich”. He claims he was tossed to the side and not paid what he is owed. The amount being sought by Fusari is $35 million. Fusari’s credits before GaGa are about as good as they get – Will Smith’s “Wild, Wild West”, Destiny’s Child’s “Bootylicious”, and countless others.
