Lady GaGa - Top of the Charts
Ever since her first single Just Dance became a hit, I have been a crazed fan of Lady GaGa. Her sound, original and catchy, always intrigued me and left me wondering what she would do next. When noticed as a crazed fashionista, rumored as a hermaphrodite, and known for being a slutty butterface, she only seemed to thrive off of the attention. After stunning live performances, creative music videos, and a record breaking four number one singles on a debut album, she was certainly on the map as someone to watch out for. She worked with top performers such as Akon, Beyonce, and even rumored to have started something with Michael Jackson. One magazine cover after another and she is finally getting the respect she deserves. When the addition to her first album came out at the end of 2009 and quickly became platinum, Lady GaGa was a household name. Her single Bad Romance was blasting through every radio station and was set to repeat on my iPod. It stayed at number one for a long time and became her fifth number one single of 2009. The music video was one of the most creative pieces I have ever seen, showing true originality and passion for her art. Music and her fans are the only things she truly cares about as she says, "I have no interest in love, only the love for my art and my little monsters (referring to her fans)." She has been on many shows like Ellen, Oprah, Jimmy Kimmel, and Saturday Night Live. She impresses every host with her quick wit and her contagious humor. When Ellen Degenerous commented on GaGa's VMA performance, which is said to be the true start of her career, she said, "Do you ever lip sync?" GaGa replied, "No I have never lip synced in my life. I think it is funny that so many singers these days lip sync. I mean, our job title is singer, shouldn't we sing?" Lady GaGa has captured the attention of the world, and with each new creative piece she shares the more excited I get as I see she will be around for a long time. She is blowing away other current artists as she is described to "be on a different level, no one is like Lady GaGa." I am excited to be a fan of this pop artist and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
Watch out, Katy Perry: there’s a new princess of pop who kisses girls (for real), claims Marilyn Manson and Madonna as fans and is on the verge of becoming the defining pop star of the year. Lady Gaga struts the streets pants-less, has everyone from Weezer to Justin Timberlake singing her songs and has moved nearly 10 million digital singles — and now she’s on the cover of Rolling Stone’s annual Hot List.
