How has it taken me five months to discuss Gaga? She is surely the patron saint of this blog after all. Needless to say, I am a fan. In fact, I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't like at least one Gaga song. She writes perfect pop.
There is an interview in today's Guardian and she comes across as loopy but in quite an endearing way. I was lucky enough to see her live last year and she really is born to perform. I was impressed. Her voice is fantastic and she belts out those songs while dancing like a demon. I also liked how she talked to the audience, it was very natural. Fans were throwing all sorts of paraphernalia on the stage and she picked it up and talked about some of it. She's witty as well. In fact, I kind of love her. The more I think about her, the more I like her. I do like an old-fashioned pop star who makes a bit of an effort and understands image.
My favourite Gaga songs are Bad Romance and Poker Face. I think the Poker Face video is genius so here it is. And I thank the random fan at the O2 who wore the blue leotard, that is brave.
I can't resist posting Bad Romance as well. She closed the show with this and it was perfection.
