Pop star Lady Gaga has been rising to fame since her first album, The Fame, debuted in 2008.
Gaga is a pop-singer and song writer, who refers to her fans as “little monsters.”
“Some of my favorite things about her are her clothes, music, and music videos,” said little monster Miguel Topete. “However, I didn’t really like her meat dress or meat purse.”
Gaga is known for her exciting outfits. At recent performances, she has worn a dress made of Kermit the Frog soft toys, her hair styled into a bow, an outfit made of police caution tape, and glasses covered in cigarettes.
Gaga is also known for her musical talent. Gaga learned to play the piano by ear at four years old. By the time she was thirteen, she had already written her first piano ballad.
Gaga’s pop songs address themes such as the power of fame to take over a person. Her upcoming album, Born This Way, which will debut in May, is about her spiritual connection to her fans.
“I promise to give you the greatest album of this decade,” Gaga told her fans. “The funny thing is that some people have reduced freedom to a brand. They think that it’s trendy now to be free. They think it’s trendy to be excited about your identity. When in truth, there is nothing trendy about Born This Way.”
Gaga’s fans admire her commitment to them. They appreciate her message that people should be who they are and her willingness to make mistakes.
“I admire her because although she ripped her panties onstage [at a recent performance], she kept singing,” said Nancy Verde, sophomore.
“She is an inspiration. An inspiration to people all over the world,” said Topete. “I think her new album will be epic. No. Beyond epic.”
