May 1: Haus of GagaEdit
Hello. My name is Lady GaGa. And this is the first blog entry, Ever. The first one. Always and forever by me, for the launch of my website. WWW.LADYGAGA.COM. Welcome to my blog: HAUS OF GAGA I intend to fill it with the coolest, most fabulous, decidedly important, up and coming, fashion, music, movies, articles, people, parties, hot-spots, ideas, recipes, and photos of me on the go as I begin my journey around the world to promote my album "The Fame," with my first single "Just Dance". Its a club banga.
So, I'm laying on my new purple couch at 8:30 am (i wake up early), to begin my work for the day. And as everyday approaches for the video release and single service to radio I obsess endlessly about more projects for me to sink my new yawk teeth into. Writing for other artists, designing new clothes/lady gaga props, watching bowie and devo dvds to get ideas for my show, and now (shazaam) I can't breathe I am so excited about this blog. This is the only place that I can constantly document all the new information thats inspiring me, and i can edit it all i want! Add to it, change it, stream it, upload it, download it. An interactive site dedicated to my deranged, superfan, looney-tunes love of pop culture.
So. Lets talk about this video. Because I feel like it.
I've watched it upwards of 500 times, and am impressed by my personal audacity to maneuver my way to video-edits with the director Melina, she is a genius. She's from New York, and working with her was one of the greatest creative experiences I've had yet. My vision for the video was "a house party in Brooklyn," but with all the sentiment glamour and filth of a downtown soiree or trashfest, with a touch of my Italian gaud and fascination with mobster movie motifs. Having Melina as a director, I felt as if she had been with me (perhaps in my purse) for the last 4 years following me during the NYC music grind. Her intuitions and attention to detail were scary, THANK YOU MELINA.

I love this video. It was done by DJ JAM, you'll be hearing about him much more in future blogs. Cowboy and I do all the remixes together for my live shows and collaborate on new songs...stayed tuned for a dirty record we did together called "Christmas Tree."

Thanks to www.bartabz.com, web traffickers think im a famous popstar. Adrien, we love you! He is a such a loving and devoted photog that surrounding paparazzi outside of Opera looked at me with cameras raised and asked "Am I missing something? Can I get a picture? Is it gaga?" Yes you are missing something. Check out this site, he has the most updated pictures, and goes to the coolest parties The swagger on these DJ'S, ridiculous. And the spinning, all night, dope, i was dancing my polyester blend pants off.
May 22: The Gay of The Day: Limp WristedEdit
I'm wandering through the sea of speedos and perfectly tanned muscles of Jeffrey Sanker's White Party in Palm Springs, and right after my performance I'm approached by "Limp Wristed." He told me honey I was fierce up there, and baby you are too.
May 28: Movie Pick of The Week Edit
MOVIE PICK: PARIS IS BURNING: (Not the Heiress, the retro party) and honey its fierce
THIS MOVIE IS THE LADY GAGA BIBLE. Check it out. I just watched this for the first time, and it reaffirmed that my album "The Fame" is a timeless and meaningful story. You all know the madonna record "Vogue" which was inspired by this underground new york dance movement.But it was so much more than a dance. This movie is about what I would call "Street Fame" or self-proclaimed fame. Willi Ninja was the master (I'm currently having stage suits made inspired by his style) and the movie offers a different perspective on how fame, fashion, and pop-culture can inspire us. In a good way. Go figure kitties. I love it. My pick of the week. Check it out.
