Gaga releases her single Telephone feat. Beyonce, from her album The Fame Monster.
It doesn’t really matter if it makes sense or if it doesn’t make sense. By the end of the video, it became so much more as we explored each scene it became about transsexual women and it became about making fun of American hallmarks like soda cans and cigarettes and mayonnaise and bread.
Gaga releases her single Bad Romance from her album, The Fame Monster.
I wanted to design a pair for some of the toughest chicks and some of my girlfriends — don’t do this at home! — they used to keep razor blades in the side of their mouths. That tough female sprit is something that I want to project. It’s meant to be, ‘This is my shield, this is my weapon, this is my inner sense of fame, this is my monster.”

The Guardian interviews GaGa about the crevettes at her concerts.
I just shot these art films called ‘crevettes’. That’s what I call them. It means shrimps, in French. And shrimps are small, but decadent and tasty, which is how I think my films should be. It’s got a real, genuine, like, soul of innovation.

Gaga releases her single Poker Face from her album The Fame. Gaga on her favorite songs she has recorded:
Well, Bad Romance has a special place in my heart because it meant a lot to the Little Monsters when it came out. I also think You and I is one of the best songs I’ve ever written. But the third best song… [long pause] Well, I suppose I would have to say Poker Face. But see, I have very different feelings about different songs at different times.
Lady Gaga interview
DeGeneres interviews Gaga during The Ellen DeGeneres Show and asks her questions about the premiere of her latest song, Judas, her success, and the reason why she never wears pajamas.
It’s very funny. My best friends often crash at hotels where I’m at. They will come visit me on the road and they always call me a Beauty Queen disaster. I wake up and my wig’s falling off my head. My mole is on the other side of face. My fake mole, it’s not fake it’s surreal.
Gaga releases her single LoveGame from her album The Fame.
I wanted to have that big giant dance video moment. I wanted it to be plastic, beautiful, gorgeous, sweaty, tar on the floor, bad-ass boys, but when you got close, the look in everybody’s eyes was f—ing honest and scary.
Carter and Herbert promote Gaga in San Francisco and L.A. Carter:
[Gaga had just been dropped by Def Jam Records. Carter had just been fired by Eve Jeffers, his biggest client. And Herbert had just left his label at Universal to start over fresh] So everybody had something to prove, and nothing to lose. We went from club to club. She was in the front seat of our friend’s truck. Going to four clubs a night, playing for a couple hundred people, between L.A. and San Francisco. She pretty much wore the same outfit for one year. It was something no one had seen before. Top 40 radio was telling us we had to get on dance stations, and it was gay music, not what they played.
Carter called club promoters, designers, DJs, media.
This was hand-to-hand combat
We didn’t have money for the ideas we wanted. We didn’t have people paying attention to us. We had none of that support. But what we had was each other. We had heart.
Carter, Gaga meet
Facing eviction from his office, Carter is introduced to Lady Gaga by Herbert, the executive producer at her record label. Carter becomes her manager.
Vince is a big guy, and I see him walking through the reception area. And behind him, I see this girl with these big shoes, and big black eyeglasses, and fishnet stockings, and no pants, just a leotard. We hit it off right away. Everything she is today she was when she walked through the door. She just had a point of view. The music was there. You don’t meet a lot of artists with vision, not early artists, not at the beginning.
He was going to lose his house. He had no Christmas gifts for his kids. But at the end of the day, if you’re a good person like Troy is, good things will come to you…People still to this day, they don’t understand, and try to figure it out. We still live in this world where there’s black people and white people, and people say: ‘Vince, you guys are two black guys. Why did you let this black guy be the manager of this white girl?’ Because in music no one looks at color. They just look at each other’s heart. And when you look at that, it has every color in the book.
