Overview

In little over a year Lady Gaga has rocketed from struggling as a performer in New York to the glamorous life of a worldwide phenomenon. From her outrageous outfits to elaborate live shows and out-spoken politics, her life is one grand performance. In Lady Gaga: Behind the Fame, Emily Herbert goes behind the costumes and the gossip to find out how Stefani Germanotta, the self-confessed "weird-girl" in school transformed herself into the most talked about pop figure of the new decade.

Well- researched and filled with color photos documenting Gaga from her gogo dancer days to the release of her second album, The Fame Monster, Lady Gaga is an essential source for anyone wanting to get the behind the scenes scoop on this fascinating performer. Both an inspiring story of self-actualization and a comment on today's celebrity obsessed culture, Gaga's tale, whether she's beloved or reviled, is one of pop history in the making.

    Allll u h8ers listen up

    We all know that lady gaga is a little weird right?? Well not alot of singers do what she does i mean you wouldnt see justin bieber wairing the weat dress now would u????? But thats wahat mmakes her famous and unique right????? And i think that u should respect of who she is. She is a beautiful women. My best friends cousin used to go to school with lady gaga she never gotten bullied she said that she was in all the schooles musicals.... so dont make funnn of her cause i would think that if you were her u would want the same respect as she would give her

    You totally chose the right book to like! Also I recomend reading the book, "Legend" By: Mary Lou- I think thats her-anyhow, you should also read,"Unwind" By: Neil Shusterman. Great pick though. <3 :)

    another celeb biopic churned out for the fan

    If your Lady Gaga fan wants to do a bio of her for school this is the book. Info is typical for the genre, beginnings, influences, getting started, bla, bla, bla......
    The only thing to watch are the photos, they may be a little to risque for the younger Lady Gaga fans,(or their parents and teachers) You may want to look at the book's pics before you decide to purchase.
