I wouldn't say I'm a fully-dedicated little monster, but I like Lady Gaga
. I like her a lot! She received a lot of backlash when she first broke out into the pop scene. No one was doing crazy costumes and switching between personas quite like her - meat dresses, mermaid hair, etc - a lot of which was iconic. And although you can consider a lot of her looks to be brief phases, underneath all of that she was still wholeheartedly Gaga.
She still stayed true to herself no matter what color her hair was, or how much taller her heels grew.
Now, after the release of Joanne,
it looks like she has toned things down a little bit, making a simple pink cowboy hat her main accessory. Seeing her dress this "normal" (if that's the right word, because what's even considered normal anymore?) has us thinking back to all the times her outfit trended on the internet for weeks. And not just her outfit, but also the music she was making at that time. Let's go all the way back.
Before Gaga was Gaga, she was Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta.
Then, she came out with her breakout debut single "Just Dance (ft. Colby O'Donis)" off of The Fame.
"Poker Face" came shortly after...
In 2009, she came out with the video for "LoveGame," where she made the term "disco stick" a thing.
That same year, "Paparazzi" and "Bad Romance" hit the internet. "Bad Romance" is where she really started inching towards that creepiness that she fully embraces later on in her career.
Can't forget about the outfit made up of nothing but Kermit.
And Eminem's side eye while she accepted the award for Best New Artist at the 2009 VMA's.
2010 was the year of Gaga and Beyonce. Oh yeah, here comes "Telephone," the 9 minute short film where the two go to jail and Gaga somehow embraces her sexuality even more.
That same year, she wore a dress made of meat to the VMAs.
2011 was the year of "The Edge of Glory" and "Marry The Night" off Born This Way. more huge hits (do we see a pattern here? Yeah, all huge hits). They were the first singles that were more mature. She also released "You & I," which was a song with a slight twang (foreshadowing Joanne perhaps?)
That time she ate a hot dog off the street in the most glamorous get up ever.
That other time when she was a dude.
Oh yeah, and that same year, she collaborated with Tony Bennett and showed off her jazzy side.
In 2013, she dropped "Applause" off of Artpop.
And that time she casually hung out at the 2013 VMAs in a thong and sea shell bra.
And finally... With 2016 came new Gaga. She dropped "Perfect Illusion" off of what is now her latest album, Joanne and it was surprisingly... Normal. Just short denim shorts and a crop top? We're not used to this...
Oh yeah, and she also played the Super Bowl.
Gaga has been through tons of phases... Which one's your favorite?
