I'm not exactly au courant on popular culture, so it was with open mind that I watched the HBO special of Lady Gaga in her 5th consecutive sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden. She is great! Pardon me, but she is. What a talent. First off, she can sing. The songs are good, and she writes most of them. Tight dancing. I've watched the first hour so far and enjoyed it greatly. She did a lovely song, just her and her piano, "Speechless." And of course there's "…her outré sense of style in fashion…" -Wikipedia
There seems something real and vulnerable about her, in spite of all the fame and glitz, and in this show she was back on her home turf and loving it.
Huge, interesting Wikipedia piece on her: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Gaga
