  • Lady Gaga Postmodernism

    1. 1. POSTMODERNISM RESEARCH; LADY GAGA
    2. 2. HYPERRREAL STAR CONSTRUCT  Lady Gaga is the stage name she has created for her image, she is rarely referred to as Stefani Germanotta. She keeps her personal life and her superstar status separate. This allows her to control her image & get away with outrageous things like wearing a meat dress. When fans see Lady Gaga they focus on her image and fashion rather than gossip or everyday life. She had mentioned in an interview that “ I has mastered the art of the fame”. By this she means by creating a hyper-real version of herself with outrageous fashion as Lady Gaga she is able to keep the public and press attention away from her personal life as Stefani Germanotta
    3. 3. INTERTEXTUAL REFERENCING The yellow title card text with a red drop shadow, a very similar font to That’s used in Jackie Brown.
    4. 4. INTERTEXTUAL REFERENCING  Gaga names Beyoncé as “Honey Bee” In the diner, just before they pull off their poison murder spree. this seems to be a reference to the nickname “Honey Bunny,” the nickname given to one of the two robbers in the famous diner scene in Pulp Fiction a Tarantino classic.
    5. 5. INTERTEXTUAL REFERENCING   Another Tarantino reference made was to the Getaway way car that Beyoncé drives Lady Gaga away in, called the ‘Pussy Wagon’. This is a reference to the film Kill Bill where Uma Thurman steals and drives the very same car. and literally the same one: Tarantino let Gaga use the original car when they were discussing the video.
    6. 6. INTERTEXTUAL REFERENCING  Also there are lots of other film references unrelated to Tarantino, like Thelma & Louise. The film about two women driving away from the law, a female-empowerment road movie. As Gaga and Beyoncé drive off into the distance at the end, there is a great feel of the Thelma and Louise ending.
    7. 7. INTERTEXTUAL REFERENCING  Another clever Pulp Fiction reference, the “To be continued…” title card at the end of video could be referencing one of the famous lines in Pulp Fiction. “To be continued” is a classic Vincent Vega (John Travolta) quote, right at the end of the film leaving it on an enigma, like the video for Telephone.
    8. 8. INTERTEXTUAL REFERENCING  Lady Gaga has used parts of older material and has her own take on things. For example Michael Jackson ’Bad’ & Gwen Stefani ‘The sweet escape’.
    9. 9. INTERTEXTUAL REFERENCING  As she is leaving the prison she does an Imitation of Michael Jacksons trademark shuffle .
    10. 10. INTERTEXTUAL REFERENCING  This shot where Lady Gaga is dancing with her cellmates is referencing to the film Chicago.
    11. 11. INTERTEXTUAL REFERENCING  Here she is using Madonna's style and imitating it in her very own style.
    12. 12. BRICOLAGE  Warhol played a huge influence in the “Telephone” video, which explored themes like consumerism in pop culture and issues of gender and sexual equality.
    13. 13. BRICOLAGE  Lady gaga plays the stereotypical 50’s housewife in this scene, but she uses bricolage to create a new meaning to show how she felt about the 50’s housewife. Gaga and Akerlund challenge the gender stereotype of the “perfect housewife” portrayed in 1950’s pop culture, using wonder bread and miracle whip as their artistic devices. Adding poison to the food she makes and ends up killing everyone in the diner.
    14. 14. PASTICHE  Female banter in the car: Death Proof Idiomatic banter is a Tarantino staple, and “Telephone” rides that wave with lines like “once you kill a cow, you gotta make a burger.” A car scene from Death Proof. A scene from telephone involving female banter.
