Lady GaGa claimed her fame through debut album "The Fame". On the effort which has been released in the U.S. since August 19, she embraced pop culture and invited her fans to an electro-techno roller coaster ride of music.
"'The Fame' is about how anyone can feel famous," GaGa spoke about her debut record. "Pop culture is art. It doesn't make you cool to hate pop culture, so I embraced it and you hear it all over 'The Fame'. But, it's a sharable fame. I want to invite you all to the party. I want people to feel a part of this lifestyle."
Since hitting the selves, GaGa's first LP peaked at number 1 on Billboard Top Electronic Albums chart and climbed to number 17 on Billboard Hot 200 albums chart with 24,000 copies sold in its first week of sales. The album was led by a self-penned song "Just Dance" where she teamed up with Colby O'Donis. "(On this song) I wanted to write the female version of Motley Crue's 'Girls Girls Girls' but with my own twist. I wanted to write a pop song that rockers would like," GaGa said.
Making her way to the music industry through theatrical club gigs and self-promotion projects, this rising star is set to perform alongside big names at "Z100's Jingle Ball 2008". Ne-Yo, Leona Lewis, David Archuleta, Brandy, Paramore, Katy Perry, Jesse McCartney, Chris Brown are several musicians who will be joining her at the event. Taking place at Madison Square, the star-studded show will be held on December 12 with Rihanna serving as a special guest host.
