All we hear is...

Lady GaGa.

The woman is everywhere. Number 1 single, number 1 album and number 1 on the chart of pop stars least likely to wear trousers (hey, it exists). Now she's inspiring a whole new level of misogyny in a genre that loves it like a fat kid loves cake.

Kid Cudi, Kanye West and Common have all collaborated on a song lovingly entitled 'I Poke Her Face', which samples a loop of GaGa singing 'Poker Face' live. Do you see what they've done? These guys are rapping about oral sex, like poking it in her face. Probably while she's drunk! Ha ha, you guys.

Here it is:

"Get up on this conscious dick". Oh, Common, you charmer you.

The best bit is where the rapping stops and the original hook is left to glide over some scratching and that incessant beat.

It makes you yearn for the original, which can't be the point:

Well, not the 'original', but at least this bizarre American Idol performance.
