Lady GaGa Won 2 Grammy Awards! Is the New Queen Of Disco/Dance/Electronic Music

Lady Gaga and Elton John's Grammys duet: Did you think they were on fire?
Lady Gaga and Elton John just sang their much anticipated two-piano-powered duet at the Grammy Awards—a fusion of Gaga’s “Speechless” and Sir Elton’s “Your Song.” The number followed the very first song of the night, a lavish performance by Gaga of “Poker Face” that culminated in a bit of stage business where she was seemingly set on fire. The whole shebang was hardly lacking in spectacle, and full marks to the pair for adopting a rather, well, singed look for their collaboration. But will it go down as a really memorable Grammy moment, comparable with the Elton/Eminem performance of “Stan” in 2001? Maybe not. But what did you think of the Grammys opener? Was it hot? Or overcooked? by Clark Collis

Talk of Parties, Lady Gaga Dominates Grammy Carpet
The Grammy Awards give the music industry a reason to party like — well — like rock stars, and the party begins on the red carpet outside Staples Center. It was there on Sunday that guests greeted their fellow musicians, talked about the weekend's festivities and speculated about what Lady Gaga would wear this time. GAGA'S GETUP: Keri Hilson, John Legend, Ringo Starr, Seal and numerous others spent a good part of their time on the red carpet guessing what envelope-pushing outfit Lady Gaga would arrive in. "I'm going to go with lettuce," said best new artist nominee Hilson, who wore a body-hugging Dolce and Gabbana gown. Rappers Redfoo and Sky Blu of LMFAO predicted the avant-garde artist would wear "probably a fish tank, with live fish and a snorkel." Starr said "she may be all in blue, like 'Avatar.' Anyway, who knows. I want to be surprised." Alice Cooper's guess? "I think she'll be wearing a Lionel train set on her head tonight, with the full smoke and everything like that. I wouldn't be surprised, and I'll be disappointed if she isn't." Seal said Gaga's outfit was the "main topic of debate" on the carpet. His wife, "Project Runway" host Heidi Klum, was among those eager to see the pop star's Grammy ensemble. "I don't personally know her music," Klum said. "But I am definitely intrigued by all her outfits. They're so out there and I do want to know what she's wearing, to be honest." Gaga didn't disappoint. She arrived in a shiny, silvery, three-dimensional number that was created in collaboration with Giorgio Armani, then changed into a green fairy-wing bodysuit with matching green sparkle booties to open the show.

Alice Cooper: Lady Gaga is 'not just a costume freak'
Presenter Alice Cooper explained the secret for his longevity. "If you can take that animated character and leave him up there … leave him onstage and then you can co-exist with him. As soon as I'm offstage, Alice stays there." He praised Lady Gaga, both in appearance and performance. "I think anybody who takes it as vaudeville as she has taken it is OK by me. … Lady Gaga sang with Elton John tonight and nailed it. She proved she's not just a costume freak. … She's going to be around as long as she wants." He also talked about what it was like to become a golfer. "I had to be a closet golfer when I started because it was so against my image. It was one of those things when I stopped drinking I had to find something to take that time up." — Bill Keveney

Katy Perry Calls Fellow Grammy Nominee Lady Gaga 'A Reigning Queen'
"Gaga knows she has it. She's dethroned everybody," Perry says. BEVERLY HILLS, California — Katy Perry is in awe of fellow pop superstar and Grammy nominee Lady Gaga. Perry knows that if anyone is going to leave people buzzing at the water-cooler on Monday morning, it will most likely be the over-the-top New Yorker. In fact, Perry, who is nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her song "Hot N Cold," said that Gaga has really forced everyone to step up their game. "Gaga knows she has it. She's dethroned everybody," Perry told MTV News on the red carpet of the Pre-Grammy Gala on Saturday night. "She's like a reigning queen." Perry, who knows what it's like to be a pop star who marches to the beat of her own drummer, admires how Gaga has her act down. Not only is everyone looking forward to Gaga's performance on Sunday, but she's also up for five awards. "Really, I think that she just knew what she was doing, and she's just playing the game on a totally different level," Perry said. "And people are now just playing catch-up with her. When I saw her on the AMAs, I was like, whatever. She was just in the Bowie/Prince kind of level."

Lady Gaga's Grammy Outfit Lights Up Red Carpet
Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Katy Perry and more wow the crowd with their fashion choices at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards. Individuality ruled the Grammy Awards red carpet. Lady Gaga — never one to disappoint on the fashion tip — showed up in a dress that looked like its own planet, with everyone from Taylor Swift to Pink to Rihanna also donning fashion that best expressed who they are as artists. Gaga's silver planetary-orbit-style dress (accessorized with pointy chandelier and yellow hair) was rumored to be an Armani creation. Rihanna hit the carpet in a white Victorian-style high-collar gown with fabric detailing at the neck. Taylor Swift also dazzled in her dark steel-blue sparkly gown that fit her in all the right places. Wearing a similar palette was fellow teen queen Miley Cyrus, who showed up in a peacock-green minidress. "Glee" star Lea Michele continued her reign as Hollywood's fresh new fashionista in her one-shoulder black dress complete with tiered, feathery skirt. Paramore's Hayley Williams went glam in her sparkly Audrey Hepburn-esque little black dress. Katy Perry arrived in a gold Zac Posen gown that, at a distance, almost made her look as if she was just wearing strategically placed flower decals. Fellow pop star Pink also went metallic for the carpet in a strapless silver gown with a black fade on the hemline. Keri Hilson also sparkled in a nude-color Dolce and Gabbana gown with silver detailing around the waist and fishtail hemline. Ke$ha also shone in a sparkly gold flapper-style dress and Beyoncé showed off her curves in a nude-color gown with geometric detailing. The guys didn't disappoint as the Jonas Brothers each looked red-carpet ready in their suits, with Joe embracing geek chic in his chunky glasses. Adam Lambert looked hot with his sparkly blazer and eyeliner combo, while the Kings of Leon stepped up their usual rock look with suits.

Will Grammys Crown Lady Gaga New Pop Queen?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Pop sensation Lady Gaga will be center stage at the Grammys, especially if a rumored duet with Elton John kicks off the 52nd annual awards show. And, by the time it’s over, she is likely to emerge as the new reigning queen of pop. Her legion of fan think she deserves nothing less, and so does a conservative business newspaper like The Wall Street Journal. Say what? A glowing article in the normally snooty newspaper noted that Gaga, aka Stefani Germanotta, produced a string of No. 1 hits in an otherwise lackluster year for new music talent, outside of, maybe, Adam Lambert. But the paper, which usually disdains pop culture, went further than that. It called her “broader impact on music culture in the space of a year” nothing less than “seismic.” Wait there is more. It also said Gaga may become the model of business success for the industry going forward. That’s a pretty strong endorsement for a New York University dropout who slummed around the Lower East Side in search of a record deal, only to be dropped by her first label, the supposedly savvy Def Jam. In one year, she’s sold 15.3 million digital tracks, and produced four No. 1 songs. “‘Poker Face’ and ‘Paparazzi,’ recalibrated the sound of pop radio with a spacey Euro vibe that’s crept into songs by rock and rap artists,” the article noted. Gaga has been nominated for five awards, including record of the year, and it’s hard to see how the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, which hands out the Grammys, can deny her its top honor, if it’s based solely on the past year. But the group, which is made up of aging fellow musicians and industry insiders, has a reputation for skewing in favor of older, established artists, much like the Academy Awards. This year, artists contending for music’s top award include veterans like Dave Matthews, Beyoncé Knowles, with 10 nominations, The Black Eyed Peas and country phenom Taylor Swift. What’s ultimately significant about the Journal article is its bold statement that Gaga is a “case study” of a successful model for the music industry. “Gaga, 23 years old, has made shrewd use of new digital platforms, while still leveraging the clout of a major label, an institution deemed obsolete by many proponents of DIY culture,” it states. “She is a product of a new kind of recording contract which goes beyond just selling records to encompass everything from touring, merchandise–even her make-up deal. “Though she writes her own material, she is as focused on visual theatrics, fashion and global appeal as she is on the music.” Actually, artists like Madonna, Bette Midler, and even Elton John pioneered that model, and if Gaga has been criticized for anything, it’s for being a Madonna clone. Also, most artists try to avoid the kind of contract that gives a major music label a piece of the action outside of producing, recording and selling music. Traditionally, revenue from touring, merchandise and endorsements has belonged solely to the artist. But with music sales in the tank, major labels have been trying for the past several years to muscle into those areas as well. In that regard, Gaga, or at least her stage persona, has been manufactured by Universal Music’s Interscope Records. Almost any female singer could have stepped into her outrageous costumes, although, make no mistake, Germanotta has genuine musical talent. Indeed, the Stefani Germanotta who used to sing on Manhttan’s Lower East Side was a serious singer/songwriter who valued her musical integrity. Not without some irony, ’70s-era Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant noted after winning the top Grammy last year that it used to mean an artist had sold out. But in an age of branding, merchandising and cross-selling, that term no longer applies. Even an edgy group like the Black Eyed Peas has endorsement deals with major corporations. So, Lady Gaga may well represent the future of music. But the future might be better represented by talented artists like Stefani Germanotta.By TheImproper

Pink backs Lady GaGa for Grammy win
Pink has backed Lady GaGa to win the 'Album Of The Year' award at the Grammys on January 31. The 'So What' singer, whose LP Funhouse is nominated in the 'Best Pop Vocal Album' category, praised GaGa's recent success. Asked who she thinks will scoop the best album gong, she told Rolling Stone: "I think I'd have to go with Lady GaGa because she really, really just took over this year. She was everywhere. "She's fearless when it comes to fashion and videos and I think a lot of other people play it really safe. I think she's been a total breath of fresh air. I love her videos. In some ways I think she's the most interesting without seeming to try too hard since Madonna." She added: "I think I'm able to like her because I don't see any of myself in her and for a while, I think, after Missundaztood came out, it was like, 'Oh, everybody wants to be a rock star now'. "But with her, I don't know, I think she's marching to the beat of her own drum. And I really, really like that." GaGa is rumoured to be duetting with Sir Elton John at the event, which takes place at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. Beyoncé leads the list of nominations with ten nods, while Taylor Swift has eight and Black Eyed Peas have six.

Lady GaGa, Elton John 'to duet at Grammys'

The pair are rumoured to be working on a duet for the annual event, which is held at the Los Angeles Staples Center on January 31. Details are yet to emerge about which song the twosome will perform, however reports claim that it will be one of the most "memorable" in the ceremony's history. Sir Elton refused to dispel the rumours when he was quizzed on the plans at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah this week, Metro reports. "Elton and Lady Gaga on the same stage is sure to create fireworks, it could be one of the most memorable Grammy performances of all time," Contactmusic quotes a source as saying. Sir Elton famously collaborated with Eminem at the awards ceremony in 2001. Pink, Beyoncé, Black Eyed Peas and Taylor Swift are among other acts confirmed to perform at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards. Beyonce leads the list of nominations with ten nods, while Taylor Swift has eight and Black Eyed Peas six.

Lady Gaga Plays "Telephone" With Grammys Secrets
Lady Gaga has a lousy poker face. We're totally on to her Grammy Awards secrets. When the lights go down on the Staples Center Sunday, the five-time nominee will be there to get the festivities rolling. And she won't be opening the show alone with an inevitably crazy outfit. Elton John will be there to join her, E! News confirms exclusively. They'll be doing some sort of medley ("Tiny Just Dancer" or "Don't Let the Bad Romance Go Down on Me" perhaps?) set to a "factory"-themed set and costumes, a source tells us. We're not quite sure whether Elton or Gaga will both be tickling the ivories, but at least one of them will. Gaga is said to be "rehearsing like crazy" at Center Stage in Burbank, and one of the tracks getting practice time is "Telephone." And just for the sake of clarity, Beyoncé won't be joining them. We just hope this collab is half as good as when Elton teamed up with Eminem in 2001. E!

Mediatraffic - Update! GaGa is Nº2 in Singles and Albums! Again

After a sales-period of only two full days the 'Hope For Haiti Now' project bows atop of the global chart with impressive 192.000 copies sold (all of them are digital sales). The compilation contains mostly new interpretations of old classics, that's why it is eligible for the hitlist, according to our chart-rules (in contrast to the '2010 Grammy Nominees', which is a pure collection of current hits). No change on the following places: Lady GaGa's 'The Fame (Monster)' holds no.2 (down 2% to 174.000 copies), Susan Boyle's 'I Dreamed A Dream' stays at third (up 4% to 172.000 copies and a total of nearly 7 million after only 9 weeks!), Alicia Keys' 'The Element Of Freedom' hangs at no.4 (down 3% to 105.000) and the Black Eyed Peas' 'The E.N.D.' moves up one slot at fifth (up 6% to 103.000). Last week's chart-topper, Vampire Weekend's 'Contra' throws down to no.6 (down 56% to 91.000). After the UK-release of Justin Bieber's debut 'My World', the album is the winner of the week and jumps from no.24 to no.8 on the tally, based on a 83% sales-gain to 64.000. Beside 'Hope For Haiti Now' debuting are Girl Next Door's 'Next Future' at no.11 (56.000), Spoon's 'Transference' at no.12 (56.000), Lostprophets' 'The Betrayed' at no.23 (36.000), Motion City Soundtrack's 'My Dinosaur Life' at no.30 (28.000) and Eels' 'End Times' at no.39 (24.000).

The Lessons of Lady Gaga. With digital dominance, business savvy, a niche-busting sound and 1,001 wardrobe changes, she is a new model for success

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Pay attention to that woman opening the Grammys. At Sunday's awards show, Lady Gaga is expected to play a duet on a single piano with Elton John. She is nominated for five awards, including record of the year, but that's less important than her broader impact on music culture in the space of a year, which has been seismic. Her debut album has generated four No. 1 songs. She topped the digital sales chart for 2009 with 15.3 million tracks sold. Her dance hits, including "Poker Face" and "Paparazzi," recalibrated the sound of pop radio with a spacey Euro vibe that's crept into songs by rock and rap artists. She grabbed attention beyond the music world with outfits that make her look like a refugee from a sci-fi film. In concert, on video and at past awards shows she has sported full facial masks, worn planetary rings around her head, and framed her face in what looked like a bird's nest. "She's very vaudevillian," says an admiring Alice Cooper, the rocker whose history of stage theatrics includes simulated decapitations. But he says Gaga's antics only work because "she can really sing."

Gaga may turn out to be yet another fleeting pop novelty, but many other industry veterans see her as the real deal, and her ambitions and skill at navigating the turbulent industry may make her a durable star. Born Stefani Germanotta, she graduated from Manhattan's Convent of the Sacred Heart school, then left a music program at New York University to chase a music career. She was signed and dropped from one label, Def Jam, before uniting with a core team of advisers. She then stormed the media in a year when Michael Jackson's death reminded us how few new music stars transcend narrow genres anymore. Underneath Gaga's haystack wigs is a case study of what it takes to succeed in the music business today. Gaga, 23 years old, has made shrewd use of new digital platforms, while still leveraging the clout of a major label, an institution deemed obsolete by many proponents of DIY culture. She is a product of a new kind of recording contract which goes beyond just selling records to encompass everything from touring, merchandise–even her make-up deal. Though she writes her own material, she is as focused on visual theatrics, fashion, and global appeal as she is on the music. Gaga's actual odds in the Grammy race are uncertain. For instance, the best-album award typically goes to nominees with a long record of achievement, including recent winners Robert Plant, Alison Krauss and Herbie Hancock. This year, the senior slot is represented by Dave Matthews. Another strong contender: Beyoncé Knowles, who at just 28 is a veteran who leads the pack with 10 nominations. The Black Eyed Peas are reliable hitmakers with a bevy of corporate sponsors including BlackBerry. Newcomer Taylor Swift, the 20-year-old country singer, also has a strong shot at awards. This year, expect the cameras to hover around Gaga, who will be challenged to top the six different costumes she donned at the MTV Video Music Awards. Divining fashion trends from her outfits would be fruitless. Instead, here are three things Gaga can tell us about how the music industry works now.

She's a digital phenomenon. Lady Gaga's towering digital sales, almost all of them iTunes downloads, only tell part of the story. In fact, much of Gaga's audience got her music for free, and legally. They have listened to free streams—by the hundreds of millions—on YouTube and the other online services that Gaga currently leads, according to research firm BigChampagne. On MySpace, Gaga has had 321.5 million plays. By contrast, singer Susan Boyle tallied only 133,000 plays, despite scoring the No. 2 selling album of 2009. A difference (among many) between Gaga and the dowdy Scotswoman discovered on a British talent show: Ms. Boyle's material, including "Amazing Grace," was traditional—and so were most of her buyers. Some 97% of her albums were sold on compact disc. "That tells you how pronounced the generational divide is," says BigChampagne founder Eric Garland. When it comes to the free streams that dwarf her still-impressive sales, Gaga isn't giving it away for nothing—musicians typically earn fractions of a penny each time a song is streamed on Yahoo, for instance. While most artists stand to profit more from high-margin CD sales, being embedded across the Web can pay dividends in exposure and the loyalty of fans.

She's got a 360-degree view. The business needs more Gagas. The upheaval of the last decade has forced the major record companies to cut their work force by 60%, according to a recent report by the Recording Industry Association of America. Within the last week, dozens of Universal Music Group employees were laid off. (Gaga's own publicist took a buyout; his job won't be filled.) Labels have had to change their relationship with artists and lean on new partners, including the talent managers they often squabbled with in the past. Without the budget and staff to support their once overloaded artist stables, labels have slashed their rosters and doubled down on acts expected to drive hits. They're also going after the money artists generate outside the labels' traditional business of selling music. This has given rise to, in industry parlance, the 360 deal, in which a label invests more money up front (for marketing, for example) in exchange for a piece of merchandise sales, touring revenue and other earnings that artists had long kept for themselves. The 360 model hasn't launched big stars yet—with a few exceptions, including Gaga. From concerts, including four sold-out nights at Radio City Music Hall this month, a percentage of her take goes to her label, Universal's Interscope Records. The label also gets a cut of her revenue from Polaroid, Estée Lauder's MAC and other corporate partners. Does Gaga validate the 360 model for other artists? While she pockets relatively less money on tour, Interscope puts more muscle behind her than it would have in the old days. "Would she be in the position to play in front of 20,000 people a night if the record company had not put up the marketing dollars?" says Gaga's manager Troy Carter.

She could be the next Madonna. On the song "Bad Romance," Gaga chants "I want your ugly, I want your disease." She lovingly refers to her fans as "monsters." On stage, she bleeds from simulated stab wounds. Despite these dark theatrics, she's become a darling of mainstream radio by drawing from Madonna's playbook, with thumping dance beats, a shape-shifting image and a playful obsession with celebrity. While Ms. Swift represents the pretty (but friendly!) girl next door, Gaga's allure is that of a misfit run amok in the system, a role that has helped her cut across disparate subcultures, including teens, finicky hipsters and gays, to whom she sends frequent shout-outs. While Gaga's bared skin and professed androgyny have raised the eyebrows of interviewers like Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Walters, she isn't shocking, per se. "That's a tool that's no longer available to pop artists," says Danny Goldberg, the longtime manager and former label head. Since rap music, he adds, "those taboos have been removed and that, to me, makes her that much more impressive. She doesn't have that easy ticket to notoriety." She's also determined not to be niche. Last year, the Recording Academy's nominating committees received a record 17,000 Grammy submissions. Many of those hopefuls hailed from what could be called music's growing middle class—made up of acts that carve out niche audiences within subgenres such as indie rock. Only a few artists, including Ms. Swift, have defied that trend as newly minted superstars. While some acts try to get there with experimental strategies, such as giving music away free, Gaga used an old technique: cementing her image in music videos such as "Paparazzi," in which she hobbles on crutches. RedOne, Gaga's primary producer, hails from Morocco and has an outsider's take on American music. "The songs have to be lyrically simple and easy to sing along to, even for people in the world who don't speak English," he says. Studio pros like Grammy-winning mixing engineer Manny Marroquin are being hired to replicate her chopping synths and densely-layered sound. "Everybody's saying, 'Make it like Gaga,' " he says. Such a now-trendy sound won't last forever. Gaga's longevity will hinge on evolving before its expiration date. Alice Cooper suggests softening things up: "I'd love to hear her sing a Karen Carpenter song." In fact, before she was Lady Gaga, Ms. Germanotta was a piano-playing singer-songwriter who haunted open mics in New York. Rather than attempt to outdo her own outlandish antics, Gaga may dial back toward that former persona. Next month, for instance, she'll begin pushing the single "Speechless," a stormy piano ballad in the mode of Sir Elton. Says Tom Corson, executive vice president and general manager of RCA Music Group, a rival to Gaga's label: "It's not just about great songs. In the best-case scenario, it's a full multimedia package."

TELEPHONE! Video will Be E-P-I-C

Lady Gaga could have Beyonce Knowles as her rescuer in the music video for her single “Telephone”. With the filming of the video being underway, words are circulating that the video is likely to include the dance electronica singer being put behind bars and the R ‘n’ B songstress coming to her rescue. The video supporting GaGa’s second single off “The Fame Monster”, according to Toya’s World, will pick up the theme and concept of women in prison and may not see Beyonce dancing. It reportedly could have Tyrese Gibson as the leading man and may feature several cameos. One is from GaGa’s Monster Ball supporting acts, Semi Precious Weapons, while the other is from comedian Luenell. GaGa’s “Telephone” music video allegedly is being filmed in a desert in Los Angeles. Words are, it will serve as a continuation of her “Paparazzi” music video. Director Jonas Akerlund, who served behind the lens for “Paparazzi”, will be helming this new video. Designers Franc Fernandez and Oscar Olima are said to create destroyed denim pieces for GaGa and Beyonce. Before working together on “Telephone”, Lady GaGa and Beyonce Knowles have teamed up for a music video of Beyonce’s remix for single “Video Phone”. On her cameo, GaGa shared, “When I was doing her video with her, she called me and she said, ‘What do you want to do?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t want to show up in some frickin’ hair bow and be fashion Gaga in your video.’ I said, ‘I want to do you’. I want to do my version of Beyonce. So the whole time I was learning the choreography, they were calling me Gee-yonce.”

Beyoncé Will Reportedly Rescue Lady Gaga in ‘Telephone’ Video, Clad in Destroyed Denim
Lady Gaga and Beyoncé are shooting the video for "Telephone" in L.A. today. The video is reportedly a continuation of Gaga's "Paparazzi" video, her epic collaboration with director Jonas Akerlund that made way for her to dangle onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards smeared up to her eyeballs with fake blood, after dance-hobbling around with a cane. But unlike "Paparazzi," "Telephone" is not about a broken heart and trying to make a man love you. It's about the opposite — trying to get your man to leave you the hell alone so you can focus on dancing and getting drunk in the club at the same time. The concept for the video reportedly involves Gaga getting imprisoned and Beyoncé rescuing her. As for their costumes, which are what's really important here, the divas are said to be wearing "destroyed denim pieces" by designers Franc Fernandez and Oscar Olima. Spring's denim explosion has been tough to accept, and downright weird much of the time, but if anyone can do the opposite for the material of what Jessica Beil did for it on the cover of Vogue, it's Gaga and her friend Beyoncé, who owes it to the world to explore just how skimpy cutoffs can get. According to early reports, Beyoncé may not dance in the video. At first this seems like a crime against humanity, but it's probably only fair. Lady Gaga respectfully put her masks and crazy body stockings aside to wear a plain white leotard in Beyoncé's "Videophone" video. Gaga has said she told Beyoncé prior to shooting, "I don't want to show up in some frickin' hair bow and be fashion Gaga in your video ... I want to do you." Because fashion is where Gaga outshines Beyoncé ... and pretty much everyone. Shaking it is where Beyoncé outshines Gaga ... and pretty much everyone. (Review the scene in "Video Phone" where they dance side by side if you doubt us.) So perhaps she owes it to Gaga to let her hips lie just this once.

Lady Gaga and Beyoncé will be filming the music video for their latest single “Telephone” today in Los Angeles! The theme of the video is women in prison, and Tyrese Gibson has been chosen as the leading man! Reportedly, the casting call was looking for a lot of prison inmates and Lady Gaga and Beyoncé body doubles.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lady Gaga has thanked fans around the world after they helped her raise more than $500,000 for earthquake-ravaged Haiti – in a single day! The singer dedicated 24 January to raising funds for the Caribbean country, pledging to donate proceeds from a New York concert and merchandise sold on her website. And at her concert on Tuesday at Purdue University, where she concluded the U.S. leg of her Monster Ball Tour, Lady Gaga announced the results of her fans’ donations. She told the audience:
“On Gaga For Haiti day, in just 24 hours, with very minimal marketing and planning, all the little monsters all over the world made over half a million dollars for Haiti relief. I know Bravado fell off their chair, that’s who sells all my merchandise – they couldn’t believe it! So let’s sing along for Haiti right now!”

We only made the decision today. I have got to get it together in 48 hours.”

Rob Fusari Talk About GaGa

With the help of music producer Rob Fusari and musician Tommy Kafafian, a young Stefani Germanotta reinvented her sound and persona – trading rock riffs for electronic dance beats. Fusari, a Livingston, New Jersey native not only cowrote her earliest songs, but he also gave the aspiring musician the name Lady Gaga. Kafafian and Fusari spoke to the Star-Ledger at their recording studio in its new location, the Ironbound neighborhood of Newark. We even got a sample of an unreleased Lady Gaga track.

For Lady Gaga, Every Concert Is a Drama

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In her stunningly gruesome extravaganza at Radio City Music Hall, Lady Gaga scowls more than she smiles, muses about dying and appears on vast video screens vomiting, being slapped and generally being abused. “Fame is killing me,” she says. Death becomes her. The difference between big-budget musicals and blockbuster pop concerts has shrunk over the years, since shows like “Mamma Mia!” can seem like a loosely connected collection of songs, while music tours regularly package carefully constructed star personas inside elaborate stagecraft and a narrative frame. In her slick and seamlessly executed concert, Lady Gaga blurs the line even more, turning the conventions of pop stardom into a fully realized gothic musical that aims for the commercial sweet spot at the intersection of horror and romance. When done well, that mashup can produce blockbusters like “Twilight,” “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Thriller.” Melding multimedia images with old-fashioned razzle-dazzle, Lady Gaga’s show (which runs through Sunday) manages to integrate theme, image and even some narrative seamlessly into one of the most engrossing dramatic spectacles in town. As a theater critic who has suffered through too many stale, pop-infused musicals, I suggest that Broadway would be smart to follow her lead. Lady Gaga, a New York native who attended the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University before dropping out to pursue music full time, calls her fans her “little monsters.” At first it seems to be a term of affection, especially when she contorts her hand into a claw in a show of solidarity with her army of devotees, decked out in mirror-ball earrings and wielding glowing disco sticks. But when she flirts with her fans, expressing her love for them, the standard pop star clichés clash with the macabre story of the show, which acts out more of a dysfunctional relationship. Her visual vocabulary marries high fashion to a fantasy fan’s aesthetic: Lady Gaga walking like a zombie, wearing scissorhands and even a suit of hair that looks as if it were stolen from the closet of Cousin Itt. In pairing spunky dance music with spooky images, Lady Gaga hints at pop music’s greatest exploitation of scary movies: Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” But while the monsters in that classic video are symbols of liberation, Lady Gaga projects something darker than girl power. She casts fame (and her audience) as the looming threat in this story and herself as the scream queen, the perpetual victim. Her elaborate set pieces make a show of helplessness and vulnerability, boxing her slight, blond figure inside a glass cube in her propulsive hit “Just Dance”; encasing it in a rotating series of orbs during the brooding “Bad Romance”; and in her most twisted image, chaining her hair to a black pole controlled by two men in “Paparazzi.” Despite a large cast of goth dancers, whose stiff legs and pale visages evoke a flailing army of the undead, Lady Gaga is frequently alone onstage, surrounded by ominous videos of giant red trees or wild animals. Wearing a suit of Christmas lights, her feet jammed into teetering heels, she first appears moving mechanically behind a pulsating green video grid that blankets the front of the stage. It’s an unusual entrance for a pop star, since Lady Gaga doesn’t show up in a blinding spotlight, but indistinctly and lost in an electric maze. The effect extravagantly juxtaposes the flights of fancy of a wandering mind with the physical limits of the body. Midway through the show, the emotional narrative shifts when this flamboyant star, alone onstage, pauses to deliver a short monologue. Skillfully transforming into an insecure teenager racked with angst, she bashfully flops on the ground and, in the plaintive voice of a performer hooked on applause, asks the audience if she looks sexy. Quickly shifting back to her superstar persona, she underlines the artifice of this plea, adding self-consciously, “I hate the truth.” In her next few songs Lady Gaga becomes increasingly aggressive and defiant, illustrating something of a love-hate relationship with her little monsters. Hunched over in an animalistic crouch, surrounded by a predatory-looking pack of dancers, she performs an angry version of her pounding song “Teeth,” as images of a ferocious wolf loom behind her. This driving song leads to a more downbeat, soulful spin on “Poker Face,” while she plays what could be described as a post-apocalyptic piano, a rusty jumble of seemingly collapsing parts that emits a purple fog. Only a few songs after begging for approval, her mood darkens. The moment has come, as it does at the end of most slasher movies, when the scantily clad victim stops running and takes on the monster, fighting for survival. Lady Gaga hoists a tommy gun out of the piano and swings it toward the crowd. Smiling maniacally, she sprays her fans with “bullets,” the weapon flashing like a strobe light. NEW YORK Post
