I first heard Lady GaGa last fall, on the local dance/techno radio station (R.I.P. KNRJ) and I've been groovin' on her sound ever since. Her hit "Just Dance" has transcended genres and is now on local top 40 stations. Take a look:
She's so.... rad. GaGa takes her name from the Queen hit "Radio GaGa" and is inspired by David Bowie, Madonna, and Michael Jackson. With muses like that, how can you go wrong? Her look is something to be awed at as well; a recent photo of her wearing nothing but leggings, a jacket, and neon green bikini bottoms in London's chilly winter had my jaw dropping. She has said her album The Fame "is about how anyone can feel famous. Pop culture is art. It doesn't make you cool to hate pop culture, so I embraced it and you hear it all over 'The Fame'. But, it's a sharable fame. I want to invite you all to the party. I want people to feel a part of this lifestyle." So while you may be a little jarred by her sound and her look, you gotta admit it oozes the pop culture so many of us style tramps thrive off of; I tried to cut my bangs like GaGa, but alas I feel my imitation is moot. Even Christina Aguilera has been accused of ripping off GaGa's style (see Google, babes).
Here are Lady GaGa's two other current videos, and if you like, keep watching!
