    THE OFFICIAL LADY GAGA THREAD!



    Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (born March 28, 1986), better known by her stage name Lady Gaga, is an American pop singer-songwriter.

    Gaga came to prominence following the release of her debut studio album The Fame (2008), which was a critical and commercial success and achieved international popularity with the singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face".

    Inspired by glam rock singers like David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, as well as dance-pop artists such as Madonna and Michael Jackson, Gaga is well-recognized for her outré and ever-changing sense of style in music, in fashion, in performance and in her music videos. Her contributions to the music industry have accrued her numerous achievements including five Grammy Awards, among twelve nominations; two Guinness World Records; and the estimated sale of 13 million albums and 51 million singles, making her one of the best-selling music artists worldwide.

    You need an invitation code to register. I would vote for Heavy Metal Lover.

    This song is an instant classic. I felt this way about "So Happy I could die " on Fame Monster.

    My favorite song off the album has always been Bad Kids. It makes me absolutely happy. No one else seems to share my enthusiasm for it and no one ever wants it as a single. I don't think it is a very radio friendly song but it has one of the more radio friendly melodies and what on this album IS radio friendly that hasnt already been released?

    Is registration not open? :) If it is, please join if you'd like. It's the best place for Gaga exclusives, and we have a great time over there!:)
    I LOVE 'So Happy I could die'!:swoon:
    I think it's radio friendly... more so than 'Government Hooker' which seems to be a fan favorite.:confused:

    ^ I like 'Bloody Mary', 'Americano', and 'Black Jesus', especially 'Bloody Mary'.

    'Government Hooker' has that really heavy beat that wakes you up!

    I was a bit disappointed that 'Judas' didn't race up the charts more because that's a good stand-alone song. I was a little :confused: over all the pearl clutching when it was released as a single this past Spring. It seemed that you had 2 competing anti-Gaga camps overwhelmingly trashing it - one side: Madonna already mixed religious imagery and sex, so :blah: (like no one else can do it if it's been done once). The other side was like 'how dare she mix religion and sex!'

    :rolleyes:Uhg...I know...I'm so tired of the Madonna stans! So pressed.:rofl:

    If this poll is any indication, then 'Bloody Mary' will be a single! Perhaps the next single!

    Absolutely!:lol:

    Here's the audio for 'Bloody Mary'. It's so funky and cool. I love it!

    One question.

    Why do we need an Official Lady Gaga thread on a figure skating board?

    See there's a song that I hated at first, then grew to love, but I fear would be completely radio unfriendly. It's just too weird. :D I wanted to share this amazing youtube video in which some film students made their own music video for Bloody Mary. It blew my mind... looks like a real GaGa vid! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63zSjR_nhNI&feature=player_embedded#!

    I would go for "Americano" as a single.

    You've been a member since 2001, so you can't be serious? Right? Cuz afaik, this subforum is for "Favorite Movies. Food. Love Life Woes. Random Randomness. Y'know, a place where you can Chat about anything and everything under the sun here." Does someone have a chair?:D
    Hmmm, really? See, I think 'Americano' is waaaay more radio-unfriendly than 'Bloody Mary'. BM's bridge alone is so catchy, and its weirdness will be part of its charm, while 'Americano' is so screechy and noisy...not unlike 'Government Hooker'...:cold:

    Yeah, that video is really impressive! I like this one below too! :)

    Ummm, someone has a reallllyyyy big Ego:

    And you know, Madonna has NEVER done anything superficial.....or stupid...

    ETA - Lady Gaga has legions of pretty devoted fans, so I wonder if she needs to be looking over her shoulder :lol:

    Yes I have, even earlier then that, which is why I asked the question. Even skater fan threads get thrown in the trash can :p:D

    This was proven false. Madonna never said that. Press always trying to start sh*t. :rolleyes:
    If they want to move it, then they can (needless to say).:)

    Well it was discussed at length over at GagaDaily.

    The interview was done in French, so what Madonna said was taking out of context.

    Here's what happened.

    I saw part of an interview that Jean Paul Gaulthier did with Gaga a few days ago. I'm not what you would call a fan, but watching the interview I was intrigued. I'd like to see it again if I can find it on the internet or if it re-airs.

    I did learn that she named her fans "Little Monsters" and has a tattoo dedicated to you all. She's an interesting persona.

    Gaga's album is at #17 this week on the BB200! Still in the top 20 after 16 weeks!

    Can't believe Britney's dropped from #54 down to #73 this week though. So sad. :(

    What's the next single gonna be? I want Government Hooker! Although I feel like its one of those songs that will either bomb terribly or be a smash hit, there isn't really any middle ground.

    Put your hands on me, John F. Kennedy...... wheeeeeee

    Looks like it's been decided for most of the world, but not yet the U.S. From wikipedia:

    I have been wondering if any album in history has had four singles released in such a short period of time. Four singles in six months? Seems unheard of to me...unless some of those singles flopped and they rush-released a follow-up single. All four of Gaga's singles from the current album have hit the top 10.
