    She's born this way, and you can be too!

    Stefani Angelina Joanne Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga was born in Manhattan, New York. She is 25 years old. At age 19 she had a record deal, but was later dropped from it. She was then signed over with Akon after writing her first single, Just Dance. From then on she produced her first album, The Fame. The Fame included singles such as, Paparazzi, Just Dance, Poker Face, and Love Game. Her second album was called The Fame Monster. This album included singles such as, Telephone featuring Beyonce, Bad Romance, and Alejandro. Her third album, however, was her best one yet! It was a complete change for her as an artist. Born This Way let Lady Gaga show her fans who she was and let them know it¿s okay to be yourself. The song ¿Hair¿ on this album is about how she just wants to be free and for people to except her just the way she is. I feel like this a good message from her to her fans. Born This Way is a change for Lady Gaga, because it¿s completely different from any other album she¿s worked on. Born This Way has a unique style that I feel no other artist can capture as well as she did. It¿s unique because there is a big variety of different types of music and genres. It¿s mostly about expressing yourself and being comfortable with who you are. Her first album, The Fame was mostly up-beat, fun songs. The Fame Monster had kind of a mix of slower but unique songs that usually you wouldn¿t hear. Born This Way has more of a different vibe then both of her first two albums. This album includes singles such as, Born This Way, Marry The Night, Edge Of Glory, and makes no mistakes. I feel like this sends a message that everyone is beautiful inside and out and to love yourself just the way you are. The song ¿Marry The Night¿ is about living life to the fullest and never giving up on what you believe in, no matter what anyone says. The song ¿Edge Of Glory¿ was written for her grandpa who passed away. This album has a big variety of music, including, Pop, Rock, and even a Country version of the song ¿Born This Way.¿ Some of the pop songs are ¿Bloody Mary,¿ ¿Marry The Night,¿ ¿Judas,¿ and many more. The song ¿Electric Chapel¿ definitely has more of a Rock vibe and is more up-beat than most of the songs on this album. On the second CD that comes with Born This Way Extended Version, there is a Country Version of Born This Way. It has kind of a slower beat and her voice has kind of a tint in her voice to it, personally I like this version better than the regular one, which is another reason you just have to get this album. Born This Way is all about being yourself, loving who you are, standing up for your rights, but most importantly it¿s about not caring what people think of you. She wants you to be comfortable and love yourself the way you are. So go out and buy this album, you won¿t regret it, and remember you were Born This Way!

    amazing sophomore album

    This CD has everything. I love how she created a 17 song album, but instead of every song sounding exactly the same, each has it's own voice. I'm a gaga fan, been a fan since before she became "epic" but this album is a little darker and more to her NY roots. It has a lot of NYC house music influences, but there are also a lot of Whitney Houston and Madonna influences. She really created a work of art, and i'm sure there will be many people that despise this album, you cannot deny the fact that this woman is hardworking, talented and raising the bar among todays "pop-stars"

    This is, without a doubt, her best album yet. It's darker and smarter than both The Fame and The Fame Monster.

    Hauntingly Monterously Awesome

    I got the new CD Yesterday. Listen to the whole thing plus the remixes. Lady GaGa was singing in my dreams. Then when I got up this morning I heard her singing some more. I really like the new CD but I didn't realize until this morning that I like every song on the CD. The new CD is Hauntingly Monterously Awesome. You get to see another part of Mother Monster's Soul. I enjoy the Experience as always. It is a great complement to Lady GaGa's The Fame Monster. If you listen to Fashion Of His Love you going to be reminded of I wanna dance with somebody by Whitney Houston. I had to write about this cause it is still all fresh in my head and has not had time to settle. Awesome CD and I think it is great work from Lady GaGa. I know some are not going to like the new CD. Others are going to love it. That's how it goes with any artist. So the best way to sum it up is I think Born this way is Epic. But, in a sense that most would not understand. True Lady Gaga fan's know that you have to change with music and with the artist. Because it is a reflection of the artist. You either love it or you don't.
