What do we think of Lady Gaga? Is she someone to look up to or just a freak that we all think is weird. Lady Gaga was raised in a normal Italian family in the lower side of New York. She began singing as a young child, and by age 19 she signed with Def Jam Records, but most people didn't recogize her until her first hit single came out "Just Dance" and that's when the Gaga craze hit. It seems that every award show that she's at afterward I always hear about her crazy and unique outfits. But where did she get started on her strange look? It started when she performed on stage with Lady Starlight who helped her create her performance outfits.
So is Gaga a good influence? She acts and dresses in this strange way because it obviously gets her attention, and when you're trying to make a name for yourself in the music industry I think it's a good idea to make yourself stand out even if you do look like a freak. In an interview with Ellen she said that she does these weird things to show people that it's okay to be weird and that other people can show their strange side too. Good influence?
Not only does she stand out from everybody but her music is also very catchy. I hear her songs so often on the radio that I can't stand them anymore even though I use to always like them. So is Lady Gaga someone to look up to and is she going to be around for a while or is she just a new and exciting phase that will quickly fade away?
