Who Lady Gaga is a Rip-Off Of

I'm not a fan of her music, but I really respect her as a businesswoman and artist; I'm pretty sure she is to pop music what Andy Warhol was to art. If you like, you can replace the word "Rip-Off" in the topic title with "loving homage" or something, but you know what I mean.

So by this point, I think everybody's acknowledged that she's a combination of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Prince, and the visual aspects of David Bowie. I noticed two more that I haven't heard brought up yet: the SilverHawks villain Melodia, and the entire series Jem. In the first case, she's an evil pop star with a keytar that causes explosions; she looks a heck of a lot like Lady Gaga, except with green hair. (One might also notice that she works with a robot casino-owner named Poker Face.) In the second case, though, it's about a young blonde woman that works in the music industry getting a musical hologram-projecting supercomputer and starting a number-one pop band with her friends, using her computer to give her mastery over music and her business acumen to lead the industry.

Also, Jem looks like this:

and Lady Gaga looks like this:

The biggest difference seems to be that Lady Gaga doesn't usually smile that much, and isn't being constantly attacked by a skeezy band of poseurs. Unless you count the rest of the industry.
