Introducing…Lady GaGa

Published: Thursday 11th Dec 2008 by Sam

For the last year, Lady GaGa, who is signed to Akon’s Kon Live/Interscope imprint, has been creating quite a buzz within the industry. Indeed, her first single ‘Just Dance’, which made its debut back in May, has been making a steady ascent up the Billboard Hot 100 and currently sits at #3. Her debut album ‘The Fame’ was released in October.

With a sound that is an eklectic fusion of Electronica, Pop, Rock and Hip-Hop/R&B, this New York native is definitely a breath of fresh air in an increasingly ‘samey’ industry; you’ll be seeing alot more of her here on That Grape Juice. Check out the video for her current smash ‘Just Dance’ above, as well as a live rendition of the track below:

    She’s a cool artist. I have her album and I like it. She wrote/produced a song for Britney’s album but it didn’t make the cut. But I LOVE her song ‘Poker Face” which I believe is her current single right now.

    OMG. Her CD is one of the rare ones that I can listen to OVER AND OVER. 3 months later and I’m still blasting it. Love her music. But you’ll love her even MORE if you see her live. Her music videos don’t do her any justice. She is CRAZY live… so much energy!

    she’s not interesting to me. but again, i’m not a fan of electronic music.

    Lady Gaga’s style influences are from the 80’s, her name came from ‘radio gaga’, her shoulder pads gwen don’t have them!

    Just dance made top ten where ever its touched really, number 1 in canada and aus, 3 usa. Poker face got number 1 in Aus, Canada and Newzealand. The fame is her third single for oceania.

    Christmas Tree is joint single with Pokerface for other places. (post it Sam!)

    She’s helping Michael Bolton, working with him on his next album along with Neyo.

    Quicksand is a bonus track on britneys album.

    it’s all sucess for her!!!! I love the lady!! best thing to come out all year and for a long time! 😀

    thanks Sam for doing a spot on her.

    Introducing Lady GaGa? Are you serious!? Lady GaGa has been creating a buzz in the industry for quite a while now. She wrote songs for recent albums of the Pussycat Dolls, Britney Spears, and New Kids On The Block. She has also been touring with New Kids On The Block in the US. She has received much success in Canada and in the US, and has acquired quite a following along the way. The video for her 2nd single “Poker Face” premiered in October, and the video for “Beautiful, Dirty, Rich” premiered in September. Her album and singles have been steadily climbing up the charts, as more and more people discover her. Definitely posts her videos for “Poker Face”, and “Beautiful, Dirty, Rich”.

    She’s nothing special to me, seems like another looks over vocal talent.

    I don’t see her releasing any more than 2 albums/5 singles.

    Finally Lady Gaga has made it on That Grapejuice! She is what this boring low talent level industry needs right now.

    She can:
    1. Sang
    2. Dance
    3. Write
    4. Produce

    Lady Gaga is the truth period.

    I like just dance, but she just seems really gimmiky to me. i mean the whole image thing, wearing similar outfits all the time, having a signature hairstyle, why is all that crap so cool?? why can’t people just be themselves?? or maybe that image is her…i don’t know really

    She got Rihanna Brintey and Ciara beat on Vocals
    Her and Rihanna idk Id say a tie on fashion
    Ciara beats her and Britney in dancing tho. Ciara makes better music IMO. Gaga seems like a gimick to me.

    Poker face, best track on the album hands down, strong beat, strong lyrics, and the VIDEO is hot too, esp. when HIGH, lol

    I like her album. I can listen to it backt to back. I thought i would get tired of it after like a week but it’s good. She gets my vote. I didn’t think she would be singing live either so that’s nice to see that her talent holds up in live performances.

    I love Lady GaGa. I enjoyed listening to her album.

  26. delroy December 12, 2008

    Lady Gaga…now I see where beyonce has been stealing styles from. She’s been stealing from everyone.

  28. Anonymous December 13, 2008

    YES YES YES!!! Love her – amazing voice, that performance was live all the way with good dancing as well. ‘THE FAME’ is a class album. She will be massive here in UK when just dance is released nxt month. Predict BIG THINGS for this one…
