Pre-Gaga Gaga.

The first time I heard of Lady Gaga it was from Krisztianna. At the time I thought her fandom of Miss Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta was delusional or maybe even ironic. As it turns out, Lady Gaga actually has quite a lot going on for her. She’s worked hard, and for many years to create an identity and aesthetic that is musical, outlandish, controversial, and to many, incredibly entertaining.

For those of you who have written off Gaga as yet another vapid pop princess, I present you with a video from before she was Lady Gaga. This is a young woman who has clearly been practicing her piano and singing.

If you’re compelled by that, and are curious to know more about her story and theories about her and her work, check out:

Read the “Growing Up Gaga” article. You’ll appreciate much more her rocky road to fame, and the hard work she put in to get there.

I am so glad you posted these links! I’m flattered that I had something to do with your relationship to Gagaloo! She is an amazing artist with brilliant creative vision and a workaholic to boot. Thrilled you’re sharing the love love love!

Krisztianna – a year ago I scoffed, SCOFFED at you for feeling that way. Now, don’t. 🙂

Sassy – hah! Never claimed she was an astonishing beauty. And actually mostly disagree. Also, I remember some of your tastes. I don’t agree with all of them. 😉
