Lady Gaga: Looking For Fame - The Life Of A Pop Princess is the electrifying biography by Paul Lester and explores Stefani Germanotta's rapid rise to global stardom in the guise of the outrageous Lady Gaga.
Hers has been a triumph achieved with the help of wild image-making, infectious pop hits and a teasing strand of ambiguous sexuality that has turned her into a gay icon. At heart it’s the story of a unique self-made phenomenon – a Madonna for today.
As an adoring fan of Freddie Mercury and David Bowie, Lady Gaga took the essence of 80s glam and reinvented it for the digital age. Commercially successful and critically accepted she shot from obscurity on Manhattan’s Lower East Side club scene to worldwide fame in just a couple of years.
This is the story of her high-speed rise in the fame game, told with a mix of admiration and sharp journalistic insight.
