I still don't get why this is being said again. She should get to fashion her hair however she wants without people using it in connection to her music. I fashion my hair how I want, always have since I was first allowed to go crazy. Doesn't change my personality.
Speaking for myself, I think the issue is that for all she talks about being open and accepting she gives very few hints of who she is and how she feels on a more personal level. In this sense the hair and the glitzy music are easy things for people to latch onto as evidence of her desire to remain 'hidden.' Everyone knows that she has a good voice so it can be disappointing to listen to an album like this that fails to be a classic pop album while also failing to give a large portion of this website what it wants, which I'd argue is an album that focuses more on her vocal talent and trades the glitz for more introspection. In essence, I don't get the great pop album from her that I know she can make and I don't get the indie rock album that I wish she would make.
