Lady Gaga

Glamorously gaudy, a self-made postmodern diva stitched together from elements of Madonna, David Bowie, and Freddie Mercury, Lady Gaga was the first true millennial superstar. Mastering the constant connection of the Internet era, Gaga generated countless mini-sensations through her style, her videos, and her music, cultivating a devoted audience she dubbed "Little Monsters." But it wasn't just a cult that turned her 2008 manifesto The Fame into a self-fulfilling prophecy: Gaga crossed over into the mainstream, repurposing the past -- particularly the '80s -- for present use, creating sustainable pop for a digital world. Gaga's fame soon extended beyond music, as she received accolades for 2015 role on American Horror Story: Hotel and her Oscar-nominated turn in the 2018 remake of A Star Is Born.

    Looking Back at Lady Gaga's Legendary Blood-Soaked VMAs Performance, 10 Years Later

    Exactly ten years ago, Lady Gaga delivered one of the most memorable MTV Video Music Award performances of all time. The pop star was just 23, and had previously released her debut album, The Fame, which spawned runaway hits like "Just Dance" and "Poker Face." The public was already intrigued by her catchy, unusual music and even more unusual style, but the performance - her first ever at a major award show- would offer a chance to prove her (now indisputable) talent within a live setting. It's true: the 2009 VMAs stage saw both Gaga declaring herself as one of the boldest auteurs of her time as well as the inception of Kanye West and Taylor Swift's high-profile feud, which - despite momentary truces - still rages on.

    'Shallow' sets record as longest-charting winner of Best Original Song Oscar

    After 45 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100, "Shallow" by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper has finally fallen off the chart. "Shallow" has spent more weeks on the Hot 100 than any other track that's won the Oscar for Best Original Song.

    Don't Forget: Lady Gaga's '09 VMAs Performance Should Have Been the Night's Breakout Moment

    When you think of the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, what is it that you remember? We know: it's Kanye-gate. In one of the most infamous award show moments of all time, Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for best female video, saying that Beyoncé deserved the award Siwft was holding. The world was stunned, the pair were mentioned in every headline the next morning, and the moment dominated pop culture discussions for weeks to follow.  But when it comes to the 2009 VMAs, another name should come to mind: Lady Gaga. The star, a mere 23 years old at the time, had released her debut album The Fame one year prior, and become a household name in that same time. After months of climbing,
