The REAL Lady Gaga?

What makes Lady Gaga so endlessly fascinating?

Is she the greatest singer in the world? The best dancer ever? Probably not but at age 24, everyone knows who she is, and when she is on they can’t not watch.

Which is why Anderson Cooper interviewed her for 60 minutes:

“I smoke a lot of pot when I write music, so I’m not going to sugar-coat it for 60 minutes, that, you know, I’m some, like, sober human being, because I’m not. When you asked me about the sociology of fame, and what artists do wrong, what artists do wrong is lie. And I don’t lie.”

The sociology of fame: See, her fame is no accident. She has studied it. The key is total honesty.

“I just didn’t want to wear clothes today, for whatever reason. I actually don’t even have any foundation on my face.”

So you hear those words coming from the TV in the next room — what do you do? You run in to take a look!

“I wish I could give that gift to my fans, we are all born super stars.”

So she comes out of an egg at the Grammies, sometimes doesn’t wears clothes, so that where other stars try to establish a predictable brand — she is the anti-brand. Consistently inconsistent. Predictably unpredictable. So when her name is mentioned, you have to look, because one thing you know, she is not going to be the same Gaga she was last time.

Her message to her fans:

“We are all born super stars.”

That’s a good uplifting message. But after the pot wears off, you also have to ask yourself how much actual work it takes to be that unpredictable day after day after day…
