ABSTRACT

The aim is to examine Lady Gaga’s revolution regarding gender, sexuality, and politics with the focus on her songs, videos, and live performances. The main argument indicates that Gaga’s pursuit of an enduring cultural presence is a response to hypermodern pressures not as the girl-next-door. Her elaborate performances and sartorial experimentation are deployed to create visual impressions that generate greater spectacles. The making of the hypermodern memory is complemented by the attempt to link herself to categories of Otherness as a celebration of the monster or the misfit in various manifestations, which builds a sense of subcultural membership among fans.

KEYWORDS
