Happy Birthday, Lady Gaga
She's pretty young.
When you look deeper into her lyrics, you find there really aren't any.
But whether you love her or you hate her, you can't argue with her pulse on fame in America. Nearly every song references it, and she's been quoted as saying: "I've always been famous, it's just no one knew it yet."
As I stand in the grocery store checkout line and stare at the celebrity worship on magazine covers, it's hard not to think of Lady Gaga lyrics. You know, the ones stuck in your head even if you don't want them there?
We're plastic, but we still have fun!
What the hell is she doing?
Would you make me number one on your playlist?
Lady Gaga has a secret power -- she's Lady Gaga. From ShowbizSpy:
“When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 24-year-old girl,” GaGa said in a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
“Then I say, ‘Bitch, you’re Lady Gaga, you get up and walk the walk today’.”
The world can't get enough.
I love Lady Gaga because -- even in her early twenties -- she's not afraid to point fingers, to satirize, to comment. She's also not afraid to believe in herself, or if not in herself, in Lady Gaga.
Happy birthday, Stefani.
