Lady Gaga is a once-in-a-decade artist/cultural event, and the rare instant celebrity. No other music star of the last decade combines the talents Lady Gaga possesses: she is a genuine singer, composer, songwriter, designer, and performance artist, who has also used technology and social media to shape her art and career. In just 15 months, she has become a demographic-smashing pop icon with global reach and impact. Not since Madonna's breakout success in the mid-eighties has the world witnessed the advent of a pop-culture provocateur who mixes high-and-low culture, the avant-garde with the accessible, "downtown" authenticity with the sheen of glamorous artifice. Gaga is a cultural shape-shifter, allowing her fans to project their needs, wants, confusions, and desires onto her. This is a must-read for Gaga fans, telling them about who she is and how she got this way, as well as for anyone who is curious about America's latest cultural success story.
