Lady Gaga has lived a lot of lives for a woman who just turned 29 this week. She's met the Queen of England and recorded with the king of singing. (Tony Bennett, folks!)
If you're a singer looking to move 30 million units of perfume and change the ideas and expectations of a generation, you gotta have some skills. Here they are.
Early Lady, as yet without her star moniker, showing the skills early on at NYU:
Bad Romance. State of the art of the music video it's been viewed more than 600 million times:
Applause, from 2013. More than 200 million views:
Poker Face. Probably where they got the idea for those cool strange Vegas ads:
LoveGame. One fan writes: "I feel like people don't appreciate how good of a lyricist Gaga is. I'm talking style, phrasing, and how concise they are. She is very good--better than most pop stars."
Well, you know, Telephone has Beyonce in it. And prison.
How about 177 million views for Just Dance from 2008. She's just 22:
Papararazzi, again from back in the day--2009. Imagine what Gaga knows about Paparazzi now! Probably the coolest one--even before (especially before) the music starts.
