  1. 1.
  2. 2. Brief Biographical Detail<br />Born as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on 28th March 1986 in New York City.<br />Attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart alongside Paris Hilton.<br />Wrote songs for Britney Spears, New Kids On The Block, Fergie, The Pussycat Dolls and Akon.<br />Primarily techno/dance/pop/synthesizer genre of music.<br />
  3. 3. Debut Album: The Fame<br />Released in 2008<br />Influences from glam rock 70’s artists such as David Bowie and Queen.<br />This album is a representation of what life is like being famous e.g. The song Paparazzi which hosts a stalker plot.<br />
  4. 4. First ever music video<br />‘Just Dance’ from her first album The Fame was Lady Gaga’s first music video...<br />Released in 2008.<br />Lady Gaga has simple straight hair, simple makeup and she is wearing party clothes.<br />This music video is a piece of performance art to represent being drunk at a house party and is quite light-hearted and shallow. <br />Nudity is a feature in this video with the dress but nothing compared to Lady Gaga now...<br />
  5. 5. Simple straight hair<br />Sexy but not too revealing clothes<br />Only piece of dramatic make-up (Tribute to David Bowie, Lady Gaga’s Idol)<br />Unusual clothing but is plausible <br />that someone could wear something <br />like this, unlike any of Lady Gaga’s recent outfits.<br />
  6. 6. Lyrics to ‘Just Dance’<br />The lyrics are light-hearted and fun<br />Representing being drunk at a party with...<br />“Where are my keys? I lost my phone.”<br />“Just dance, gonna be okay.”<br />“I love this record baby, but I can’t see straight anymore.”<br />

  8. 8. Lady Gaga Early Appearances<br />Consistent hair-style<br />Same style of makeup<br />Consistent level of skin exposure<br />
  9. 9. Second studio album: The Fame Monster<br />Seen as a sequel to her first album<br />More aggressive and dark demeanour to her lyrics.<br />Based around the evils of the music/fame industry and the desire to be part of it.<br />The most aggressive songs on the album would be Teeth, Bad Romance, Monster and Alejandro.<br />
  10. 10. Music video from the Fame Monster: Alejandro<br />Androgynous feel to video<br />Low level lighting; gives a eerie feel<br />Harsher makeup, dramatic hair style<br />Extreme nudity, lingerie.<br />
  11. 11. Alejandro<br />Unusual headwear<br />Beginning of religious references<br />Extreme nudity<br />Sexual references are constant especially in dance routines and shots.<br />Dark mood is set in the music video<br />Dominatrix atmosphere<br />Shows a much more socially unacceptable Lady Gaga<br />Criticised for being too sexy; bad role-model for young fans<br />Criticised for being blasphemous.<br />Pained expression on face<br />Black and white colours <br />represent dark mood<br />
  12. 12. Lady Gaga Appearances<br />Different, varied hairstyles<br />More unusual outfits<br />More nudity<br />
  13. 13. Third Studio Album: Born This Way<br />Released on 23rd May 2011 <br />Represents a shining beacon of hope to ‘misfits’ and ‘outcasts’.<br />Wants to convey self-appreciation and begin the end to prejudice.<br />
  14. 14. Born This Way Music Video<br />Starts off with a monologue from Lady Gaga explaining that a ‘perfect’ race, free from prejudice and equipped with boundless freedom was born at the same time as an evil race which could destroy the perfect race.<br />Extreme nudity again in this video but with a different message. Lady Gaga is predominantly nude to show she was ‘born this way’.<br />
  15. 15. Born This Way Single Cover<br />Complete nudity<br />Prosthetic bones<br />Dramatic, dark makeup<br />Text is similar to a thunderbolt pattern; which is features in her Just Dance video<br />
  16. 16. Born This Way Lyrics<br />“I'm beautiful in my way'Cause God makes no mistakesI'm on the right track, babyI was born this way”<br />Don't be a drag, just be a queenWhether you're broke or evergreenYou're black, white, beige, chola descentYou're Lebanese, you're orientWhether life's disabilitiesLeft you outcast, bullied, or teasedRejoice and love yourself today'cause baby you were born this way<br />More serious lyrics; less about partying and carelessness but more about self-appreciation<br />
  17. 17. Array of races dancing together in a routine; showing equality<br />Extremely bizarre dress and dramatic makeup<br />
  18. 18. Lady Gaga Appearances<br />Different hairstyles<br />Extremely unusual outfits<br />
  19. 19. Lady Gaga Appearances<br />Lady Gaga’s most prominent appearance change is the prosthetic bones on her body and face.<br />She gained a lot of criticism for this enhancement as it could represent a link to anorexia and suffering. <br />
  20. 20. Conclusion<br />In her 6 active years as a recording artist/singer/songwriter, Lady Gaga’s star image has developed incredibly. She started out as a pop-princess concerned with partying and getting drunk to progressing into conveying the evils of the music industry and now showing a development of self-appreciation in her new album ‘Born This Way’. However, the way she has conveyed this in her style of music has stayed the same; in a techno/dance/synthesizer style of music. This consistency has made her extremely successful as people can sing along and it can feature in nightclubs.<br />
