Pop star Lady Gaga will visit Istanbul for a suprise concert.
The singer known for hits “Bad Romance” and “Poker Face” will perform on 13th of may organized by Bilgi University for the spring festival ‘Mayfest’ at Santral İstanbul.
Lady Gaga (born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta; March 28, 1986) is an American recording artist. She began performing in the rock music scene of New York City’s Lower East Side.
The singer came up with her stage name, when she received a text message from a friend that read “Lady Gaga” after the Queen song “Radio Ga Ga”.
Lady Gaga is inspired by glam rock musicians such as David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, as well as pop music artists such as Madonna and Michael Jackson. She has also stated fashion is a source of inspiration for her songwriting and performances. She has sold over eight million albums and over thirty-five million singles worldwide.
Lady Gaga gained popularity through such chart-toppers as the Grammy-nominated “Poker Face” and “Just Dance” from her “The Fame” album from 2008. She was also nominated for nine MTV Video Music Awards, from which she won three including “Best New Artist”, Best Special Effects” and “Best Art Direction”.
Critics around the world have raved about Lady Gaga’s performances, which Gaga described as “the first-ever pop-electro opera.” The Sun called it “breathtaking stuff” and “the best live show you will see this year,” while London’s Independent wrote: “Gaga’s got it, which is why, right now, the whole pop world wants to take a ride on her disco stick.” Writing about her show at Radio City Music Hall, the New York Times noted that “her Monster Ball tour always provided something worth a snapshot: a sci-fi tableau, perhaps, or a skimpy, glittery costume. The more her image gets around, the better Lady Gaga does.”
