So, the title’Lady Gaga must surely cross your head at some point during your reading. The popular American artist and musician have dazzled the planet with her unique talents over the past several years. She’s also an actress, a choreographer, a songwriter and a model, and has won a number of awards including the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Lady Gaga is truly someone who has achieved almost cult status in her native America, but even outside of the United States, she has managed to build an impressive career.
However, despite her impressive resume, Lady Gaga seems to have set few records since her rise to fame. Certainly, there was the massive amount of popularity she received after her 2021 single ‘appa kerato’ (which translates to’read against life’), but Lady Gaga has remained relatively unknown since that time. That’s not to say that she has never had an acting role or a lead role in a film – she did star alongside James Bond in Casino Royale, and also appeared in The Social Network, but Lady Gaga’s acting chops seem to be reserved for songs. However, Lady Gaga’s best known and most recognised roles are those involving fashion, which she has done for several years now, in both music and television, and she has achieved quite well in both.
Gaga’s greatest claim to fame (so far), however, is her role as Lady Gaga in the movie The Lady Gaga Christmas Special. She played the part of Mary Magdalene, an evil Christmas prankster, who tries to steal the Virgin Mary’s Immaculate heart from an ornamental rhinestone statue of Virgin Mary. She then attempts to strangle the still-possessing Mary with her bare hands, before casting a spell on the entire congregation of St. Luke’s Church on Christmas Eve. Although Lady Gaga’s character might not have been exactly the glamorous bad girl that she was introduced to through her music, nor the dark mystic that she subsequently became, the Lady Gaga Christmas Special marked a turning point in her career.

In 2021, Lady Gaga made a second video for her self-titled ‘Gaga’. This time, she chose to star as herself in a rather less glamorous light, in an animated form. Although the film failed to score well at the box office, it did become popular with Gaga’s audience, who could relate to Lady Gaga’s persona and the dark, Gothic side that she exudes on stage. Lady Gaga also made several more Lady Gaga Christmas Special appearances, both on stage and off. Each one seemed to garner increased attention and admiration from fans, as well as increasing ticket sales for the live shows.
Lady Gaga returned to her stage name and loveliness in the lead up to the release of her latest album. After adding several new songs, The Fame Monster was released, followed by a tour of several cities around the United States. Despite some critical acclaim, Lady Gaga’s fan base seemed to be dwindling somewhat. Onstage, Lady Gaga seemed to take a slight back seat to her fellow performers, occasionally seeming a little tired and listless. She also seemed to miss the unique sound of her previous singles, which were much more polished and professional in tone.
After a year of touring and recording, Gaga returned to perform with her former band, Chromeo, on their third album, Man On The Moon: The End of Day. Despite some high profile headlining performances, Lady Gaga’s music seemed to suffer from the same problem as her previous outings. Her music fell flat and seemed to lack that special something that made her first two albums so successful. The second album failed to further establish Lady Gaga as an artist, and instead, her sound seemed to return to its low point. With the rise of her third and fourth albums, Lady Gaga seemed to forget about her huge fan base, which seems to be dwindling once again.
