Those who think that it's been a while since a new pop female artist has shown up on scene should see Lady Gaga. A theatrical dance-pop singer, songwriter and pianist, Lady Gaga has created a buzz for herself in the New York underground. With an infectious combination of beauty and talent, Lady gaga has captured hearts of people. She is known for work in the electronica genre, and is also one emerging Pop Star who hasn't been plucked from a model casting call. Lady Gaga has been nominated for a Grammy Award and was recently added to the BBC Sound of 2009 longlist.
Originally called Stefania Gabriella Germanotta, Lady GaGa was born to an Italian family in March 1986, in New York. When she was a little girl, she would sing along on her mini plastic tape recorder to Michael Jackson and Cyndi Lauper hits. By age 4, Lady Gaga had taught herself to play the piano by ear. She penned her first song when she was a teenager and started playing open mic nights at New York's Bitter End at just the age of 14. By the age of 17, Gaga had been one of a few kids in the world to get early admission to Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.
When Lady Gaga would get twirled in the air in daddy's arms to the sounds of the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, no one had expected that she would one day become a heart-throbbing persona. Influenced by flamboyant glam rockers such as David Bowie and Queen as well as '80s dance-pop such as Madonna and Michael Jackson, she began working for Interscope Records at the age of 20. She served Interscope Records as a songwriter, penning songs for pop acts such as the Pussycat Dolls. Since she was among those who could stick around one thing, her talent pushed her to earn the right to reach for the sky.
A couple of years later, Stefania mounted a solo career. It's no wonder that she turned into the exhibitionist, multi-talented singer-songwriter with a flair for theatrics as we know her today: Lady GaGa. She started working the local Lower East Side club scene, and came up with then-hits like 'Beautiful Dirty Rich'. Creating music was not the only thing that was paving a way for Lady Gaga to rise to stardom, there was something else too. Her unique stage outfits! Her creative team, the 'Haus of GaGa', promoted the image of Lady GaGa worldwide via fashion, technology and various media.
Throughout 2008 Lady GaGa worked on tracks for her debut album 'The Fame'. Prior to releasing The Fame, she earned a satisfied audience base. People began recognizing Lady Gaga with her performances which were accompanied by her infamous 'Disco Stick' and a pair of metallic sunglasses with digital screens as lenses which play video content. Lady GaGa's pop persona is styled with blonde geometric bangs and Diamond encrusted shades. You will see her wearing loose hooded garments with skin-tight pants. The fall of 2008 saw her creative team, Haus of GaGa, turning their focus upon the USA market.
After releasing her debut album The Album Lady Gaga embarked on a world tour to promote her album. She toured with two dancers, Cinnamon and Ginger, and English DJ Space Cowboy in tow throughout the summer. With her stunning dance moves while singing live over remixed versions of her hits, Gaga made the tour special in terms of growing her fan-base. Upon returning, she made a way back to her club roots. Lady Gaga is back in studios with plans to create a visually fresh showcase of her potential hits. Lady GaGa is fortunate enough to have received mostly positive reviews from professional music critics. 'Us Weekly' compared her to Madonna and called her Pop's New Dance Diva', while ArtistDirect.com said, 'Musically, Gaga has never taken a single footstep off the path already trod'. Praising her debut album The Fame, Billboard magazine called it 'An Album full of Hits'. Also worth-considering is the New York Post's review that called her the 'future of pop'. The emerging pop star shows her passion for love songs on softer tracks such as the Queen-influenced 'Brown Eyes' and the sweet kiss-off break-up song 'Nothing I can Say (eh eh)'.
Lady GaGa knows the art of hitting the ground running, while her song-craft is immaculate, creating infectious and addictive tracks laced with dance-pop righteousness and sweet melodies. A reality TV singing contestant who emerged from a teen cable TV sitcom, Lady Gaga is due to embark upon a tour with New Kids on the Block with whom she has collaborated on the song 'Big Girl Now'.
