Lady Gaga, a famous pop singer and performer, is too iconic to fully fade out of the music world just yet. For years, pop music lovers idolized Lady Gaga for her unique lyrics, upbeat tunes, and legendary performances. Lady Gaga made her debut in 2008 with her first hit single “Just Dance.” Listeners were blown away by her talent and, just a year later, another one of her singles “Poker Face” was released. Both of these songs slowly climbed their way into top charts on itunes, and fans found these singles to be extremely catchy. Throughout the next couple of years, many of her songs became extremely popular amongst the music community. Some of her most well-known songs are “Born This Way,” “Bad Romance,” “The Edge of Glory,” “Paparazzi,” “Applause,” and “Telephone.” However, the Lady Gaga music craze faded out a few years ago, as she was busy working as a character on the show American Horror Story.
Just as fans were starting to remember Lady Gaga as an old memory in the music world, she entered back into the game. This year, Lady Gaga gave an epic Super Bowl halftime performance and released a new album called “Joanne,” which includes a song called “Million Reasons.” This ballad instantly became a sensational hit and was unlike her quintessential upbeat songs. This song truly personifies Gaga’s voice and personality through her expressive lyrics. “Million Reasons” quickly hit the top itunes charts and eventually became number one. Another song from her album that has also recently become popular is “Perfect Illusion.” “The Cure” is Lady Gaga’s most recent single, and it is currently number one on the itunes top chart.
Most artists dream of performing at the Super Bowl halftime show, which has become a popular American tradition. This performance encompasses astonishing props and well-trained dancers. Millions of dollars are spent towards the efforts of creating a top-notch performance, and there are millions of people watching from their TV screen or their seats in the audience. Lady Gaga was chosen to perform at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. After literally flying into the stadium, she performed a medley of some of her most well-respected songs, such as “Bad Romance,” “Just Dance,” “Telephone,” “Born this Way,” “Million Reasons,” and ‘Poker Face.” Fans rejoiced and felt nostalgic as they had the opportunity to watch the performance of some of their old favorites and were more than pleased with her newest song. By the next day, several of Lady Gaga’s older songs were back in the top 10 on the itunes chart. These songs have recently been played more often on the radio. On the same day, Lady Gaga announced her upcoming tour for her most recent album. Tickets are available now, and Gaga will be performing at Citi Field on August 28th and 29th.
2017 might just be the most pivotal year of Lady Gaga’s career. If she keeps heading in this direction, her journey can result in endless opportunities. Congratulations to Lady Gaga on her recent endeavors, and good luck with the upcoming tour.
