Title card

Transmission Gagavision is web series documenting Gaga's journey into pop superstardom. The first forty webisodes of one to three minutes were released on a weekly basis from June 24, 2008 to March 31, 2009. On March 30, 2011, Gaga announced that she would be resurrecting the Transmission Gagavision webisodes beginning the week of April 4, 2011. It lasted for 4 episodes before being stopped. For a short run, Gaga created the series Monstervision in 2012. The original series returned for one episode in 2014.

Background

The first "weirdisodes" as Gaga called them were posted on Gaga's Imeem then, the transmission were uploaded on Gaga's official YouTube channel. New transmissions debuted every Tuesday at 3pm PST on www.ladygaga.com. For some reason, webisode twelve of Gagavision was removed but it still possible to watch it on Gaga official website in Australia.

The web series used footages filmed by various members of the Haus of Gaga from May to December of 2008. Each webisodes covered event two to three months old which created an increasing gap between the release and the actual event at the time. This led to the hiatus of the web series on March 31, 2009 as Gaga explained on Twitter: "Trans[mission] gagavis[ion] are NOT gone forever. Current epis[ode] are 6 months old and I felt it was unfair to the fans. Go to ladystarlightnyc youtube chan[nel]". She also wrote on MySpace an additional explanation:

"The transmission gagavisions are not gone forever, but have been seriously outdated. The last transmission was video footage from at least 6 months ago. The progression of the show, and the Haus, the feverish loyalty of the fans, is very dear to me and is the nexus of my creativity. I want you to have the proper films we've been working on. Lady Starlight and I both love the transmission gaga visions, but we felt they needed to die. A slow heavy metal death. And thus became the birth of the new, POP CULTURE PARKING LOT."

After six episodes of Pop Culture Parking Lot, Gaga nor Lady Starlight continued their web series. From time to time, Lady Gaga uploaded a couple of videos on her Youtube channel but with no sign of a possible return to the series. During the interview at Google headquarter in March of 2011, fans asked Lady Gaga about the possibility of bringing back the web series to which she replied her plan to ressucite the series to cover her making of the Born This Way Ball. Following her answer, a new series of Transmission Gagavion is scheduled to begin on the first week of April.

Gaga once again resumed the Gagavision series in January, 2014.
