Lady Gaga has truly reinvented her brand. From being the “monster” to the rebel to the classic singer, Lady Gaga has been through major transitions in this decade. To add to her success, Lady Gaga is now getting another mark in the entertainment history for being the first artist to ever cover three big shows in one year: Academy Awards, Oscars and the Super Bowl. Moreover, she does all of this in the same month, according to Billboard via NME.
Lady Gaga has been selected to be the Grammys singer to pay tribute to the late David Bowie. During the show, Lady Gaga is expected to sing 3 or 4 of David Bowie’s songs.
In her interview with NFL, she called her appearance on the show as the “highest honor.”
“I’ve always wanted to sing the National Anthem at a major sporting event since I was a little girl. This is one of the highest honors of my career. I get a chance to sing for all the athletes who have been working so hard their whole life for this moment.”
As for the specifics of her performance, she is not divulging any details yet. The fans might not be able to see Katy Perry’s dancing shark guy, but fans are truly in for a treat.
“I have to live up to a song that stands the test of time. think the best way to do that is kind of forget about yourself and just focus on what it means… I’m really singing it from the heart and I’m also singing it really very true to the way that it was written, because I think that’s when it sounds its most majestic.”
Lady Gaga ARTPOP Reinvention
Aside from her big accomplishments this year, Lady Gaga also won an acting award for her performance on the American Horror Story. As an effect, Lady Gaga admitted her experience on the show will have a big impact on her new music.
Lady Gaga is set to release an album this year. The 29-year-old singer also said that the new release will have more “clarity” than her 2013 album, ARTPOP.
After ARTPOP, Lady Gaga went on a long sabbatical and just decided to focus on herself. She had confessed that the entertainment industry and her rise to fame has affected so much of her life. This eventually led to her being unhappy.
When she came back, she started a revolution to cure depression and help people transition to happiness by learning to say “no.”
“I have had to make decisions. ‘Why am I unhappy? Okay, Stefani, Gaga, hybrid-person. Why are you unhappy? Why is it that you wanted to quit music years ago? It feels shallow. I have a lot more to offer than my image. So what did I do? I started to say ‘no’.”
With her new self, Lady Gaga is ready to show the world why she is at the top. She actually told James Franco in a new interview published in V Magazine that she is doing a lot of writing during the past year. Since the American Horror Story has been her outlet for pain, she will be incorporating the show on her new album.
“The show has really affected my voice, I have to say.? ‘I’m using my listening from acting in my music more, which is crucial because it’s music. Who knew I could listen even more?’ It’s amazing to even talk about.”
Still, Lady Gaga promises some pain to resonate to the audience.
“There will be some of my pain on the record for sure, but it will be more than that. My last album was riddled with a ton of pain. That whole record. It’s almost like you couldn’t even get to what it is.”
