ABSTRACT. This paper provides an analysis of Lady Gaga, the genesis of this name and the evolution of Stefani Germanotta into an avant-garde artist who makes the most of her art school background and combines aspects of performance, art, and fashion into a musical style that represents a distinctive multimedia melange philosophy. This paper explores her use of the work of several contemporary artists and her understanding of art theory and pop psychology to achieve a creative synthesis as one of the greatest performance artists of the twenty-first century. pp. 25–37

Keywords: Lady Gaga, performance, art, fashion, avant-garde
