Lady Gaga: Fans fall for singer’s lunatic image

Story published in the Vancouver Sun on August 21, 2010.


Lady Gaga is smarter than her glitter-encrusted roadkill hats lead us to believe.

Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – has created an image for herself that has infested every crevice of popular culture today. Think about it: her name has become a metaphor for anything that can be remotely classified as bizarre or odd.

While some may consider the superstar to be a straight-up basket case, perhaps we should look at her crazed ways as symptom for a much more calculated intention.

“It’s not just about the music,” Gaga says in her website’s biography. “It’s about the performance, the attitude, the look.”

Germanotta created Lady Gaga. She behaves like Lady Gaga 24/7 because she has to. It’s part of her art. And her art is her image. Her art is her life.

Call her crazy, but her campy antics have made a lasting impression on the world.
