Lady Gaga's manager Troy Carter has called Gaga a "200 pound toddler" and said that he believes that she "hasn't made it" as a singer yet.
Speaking at the Music Matters Conference, Carter responded to a question about whether Gaga has "made it" in the music industry yet, bluntly responding no and comparing the singer to a "200 pound toddler."
Carter also compared Gaga to Jesus Christ -- drawing parallels between the recent protests against Gaga's show in Indonesia to Jesus Christ and his crucification. Asked about this, he said, "It's less about Gaga than it really is what's happening in the world right now as a whole. This is a microcosm. It's a generational divide. Jesus Christ got crucified. It happens."
The manager wouldn't comment on reports that Gaga's new album would come out in the autumn, but did say that he is already thinking beyond her current record contract.
He added, "We have I think three records left with Universal. There may be a record label system there by the time her deal's up that looks more attractive."
Carter had previously said that Gaga will deliver "an insane" third album, but also said that she would be touring 'Born This Way' for another year.
He said, "It's gonna be an additional year before that tour is over. It's a long album cycle but it's part of the storytelling."
What do you think? Has Gaga made it in the music industry? Or is this just the beginning?
