Poker Face - Country Style

Why didn't anyone tell me about this? A German country singer releasing a boot scootin' cover of Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" is my idea of pop trash heaven! When I first heard this stunning rendition, I hoped assumed it was a piss take but Meg is very much for real. The German Taylor Swift - but better - is signed to Sony and scored a massive #78 smash at home with her Gaga cover. Finally a nation that recognises real talent! The biggest surprise is how well "Poker Face" works as a country song. Meg's thin voice and unfortunate accent don't help her cause but someone with talent could have nailed this. Which underlines how brilliant Lady Gaga's signature tune really is. From disco to barnyard, "Poker Face" gets gays on their feet! If you're as enamoured with Meg as I am, you'll be happy to know that the diva's entire album is comprised of covers. Words can describe her version of "Maneater". Nelly Furtado just retired from shame! Anyway, brace yourself for Germany's latest gift to popular culture. Meg's crazy eyes in the video (below) kill me. I need to own this!

Not since "From Nashville to You" has a new country artist proven themselves to be such an authentic, down home talent straight out the gate! Eat your heart out, Gwenneth Paltrow!


Speaking of La Toya, I think Meg hired the crew from her Playboy video! I love how all of her videos were shot in less than an afternoon on the same set!

Oops, I apologize! I've been rockin' this for months now! I should have known you'd discover and love it eventually. The album is absolute heaven! Her version of 4 Minutes puts Madonna's to shame (where it basically already was). It makes that song bearable, finally! And her Piece Of Me is transcendent! She's made me a cuntry fan for sure!

Is it me or this sounds better than the original? Go Meg!
PS: German country singer. This sounds weird! (the greek word for weird is "paraxeno")
