This week on Some Like It Pop pod: Team PopCrush weigh in with their feelings on Lady Gaga's personal, 'stripped down' era, the music itself, and her Joanne persona in general. Should we call her "Joanne"? Does Gaga's theatrical voice mesh well with Joanne's many countrified jams? And is "Grigio Girls" about the Real Housewives? (Update: despite Bravo's hopes that "Grigio Girls" is about RHONY's Ramona Singer, it's about Gaga's real-life friends — one of whom is battling stage 4 cancer).

Check out Gaga's recent visit to James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke," and listen to our thoughts on Joanne lead single "Perfect Illusion" below. Are you scratching your head over Ms. Germanotta's polarizing fifth studio album, or do you think it's "good as good as good as good as gold"? Tweet us, or let us know in the comments.

OH — and this is the High School Musical 2 song "A-Yo" haters are comparing her latest to. Feel free to compare and contrast.
