How does Lady Gaga stay relevant when most of her peers fade out of the limelight? You see Gaga is hot right now because she makes bold moves. First, the celebrity gambled on Art Pop. Then she toured with Tony Bennett, which was weird, but she received a big boost from it. As a result, she scored a Barnes and Noble endorsement deal alongside the legendary Tony.
I don’t know about you but my Twitter feed was blazing because of Lady Gaga’s role on American Horror Story. Just when so-called authorities counted Lady Gaga out, she raised the stakes. Remember, we’re talking about a one of a kind entertainer here.
In case you didn’t know, I believed in Lady Gaga in the beginning stages. I made a bold move by publishing this piece called Why Madonna Must Answer to Lady Gaga. My skin grew thick 3 inches because of that article alone. The lesson is haters are gonna hate, but like Taylor Swift I’m just gonna shake- shake it off.
I like Lady Gaga’s music. Plus, I appreciate her dedication and drive. She doesn’t sleep on fans, but does she sleep with them? In every way, Lady Gaga is a sex symbol. The fact she’s gothic separates her from your everyday sex symbol.
Lady Gaga expresses her emotions without sobbing and sending invitations to her pity party. The musician goes beyond the music. She challenges society’s perceptions and problems.
Perhaps, Poker Face is her all time greatest hit. But I don’t believe she’s finished topping the charts yet. Hasn’t she clearly demonstrated her devotion to singing and the performance arts?
Recently, Gaga and Kendall Jenner made the headlines at Marc Jacobs Show. Add model to Gaga’s resume. Anyone can see the girl is fearless. She’s comfortable walking on stage, singing on stage, dancing on stage. It doesn’t matter. Like Demi Lovato, she’s asking the world what’s wrong with being confident.
Lady Gaga deserves your full attention. I’m not easily won over and I wasn’t Gaga’s supporter from day 1. However, after listening to her music, watching her music videos, and seeing her interviews, on the 3rd day I determined she was great. Greatness recognizes greatness.
I was put off by her boldness at first. But that has been her calling card. That’s why I believe the Lady will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I’ve been a writer for 15 years. If there’s one thing I believe in, it is freedom of speech…The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Unfortunately, I’m beginning to notice how celebrities are losing privileges and hard earned money because they express publicly how they feel privately. It seems celebrities no longer own or control themselves.
They’re effectively censored or silenced by corporations for voicing what’s deemed to be politically incorrect. That’s flat out wrong because there are two sides to a story. This may end up stagnating society. How can our country make progress if we’re only in one frame of mind?
Give it up for Lady Gaga because she speaks her mind. It doesn’t appear she’s owned and controlled by a corporate entity. Whether or not you agree with her on the issues, at least respect the fact she’s bold enough to state her positions.
