Broad of the Month- Lady Gaga

Who She is:Lady Gaga, a former burlesque dancer who was born Joanne Stefani Germanotta, now has the number one dance song in America, Just Dance.

Why we love her
(Love is actually an understatement as we believe her to be the second coming of pop music with Madonna being our lord savior, but whatev): Gaga was born in Yonkers and attended The Convent of the Sacred Heart in NYC (fellow alums include the Hilton sisters and Caroline Kennedy-Gaga managing to matriculate without becoming incredibly annoying seems feat enough for us). However she credits Lower East Side dive bars with her real education at the hands of drag queens and go go dancers. Role models for us all...

Lady Gaga is no overnight success though and has been clawing the way to the top in her onesie bodysuit and crazy wig since she was just 14 doing open mike nights at NYC's Bitter End. She was signed by Def Jam at 19 and dropped just 3 months later and has spent the last few years writing great pop songs for shitty acts like the Pussycat Dolls, Fergie and New Kids on the Block. It's about time she had her time to shine.

Extra Credit: Lady Gaga got her big break from Akon, which makes it all the more unbelievable that she doesn't suck. We can't believe there is actual talent where the autotune should be..

Trivia: her name is a reference to the song "Radio Ga-Ga" by Queen). A producer started calling her "GaGa" as a nickname around the studio after noticing her highly theatrical stylings bore striking semblance to those of Freddie Mercury.

A girl from New York with an exceptional voice who is inspired by trannies and degenerates, she is clearly our kind of broad.

Ms Gaga- if you every need another corseted bodysuit to roll around on the floor in, come see us. We have just the thing...

With Admiration,
Dames and Broads
