A Country-dance pop album, a height defying Super bowl performance, an A-list Hollywood film in the making and a Netflix Original; what do these items have in common?
A person named Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, A.K.A Lady Gaga. She may not be flawless but she has calculated her artistry with such precision that it’s been an absolute pleasure to watch her career in all of its trans-formative glory. Starting from a dynamically radical concert at a dive bar in Fort Lauderdale on April 08, 2009 to a sold-out Mets stadium in New York City on August 25, 2017.
Back in 2009, I distinctly remember my friend asking me if I’d like to watch this person by the name of Lady Gaga (a New York based artist) for $20 dollars. To which my response was, why would I pay to watch a Drag show? Needless to say I had no idea what I was about to experience let alone personally discover. Hesitantly, I went expecting to stand in the back of this bandbox venue sweating as I eye the emergency exits for a speedy departure. Upon entering, a series of avant-garde videos of LG are projected unto a screen as she pays homage to Andy Warhol and self-titles herself Candy Warhol in search for “The Fame.”
Over time LG has not only created musical performances and catchy songs (Bad Romance, Speechless and Million Reasons) but has managed to take the fashion world by storm with her creative collaborations’ and has helped LGBTQ Homeless youth gain access to support and safety in creating the Born This Way Foundation. The only prisons that exist are the ones we put ourselves in and she has managed to breakout from every cell with unparalleled gumption & a diamond heart.
In recalling last weeks moments at her Joanne World Tour in New York City, 40,000 fans from around the globe united and danced to L.G’s album Joanne. Filled with prismatic rainbow pianos, hydrolytic lifts and diamond encrusted outfits new and old fans alike are left joyously dancing back home.
