Lady Gaga Circa 2005 Makes My Lesbian Heart Happy

Lady Gaga Circa 2005 Makes My Lesbian Heart Happy

Along with her gay and lesbian equality activism, theatrical "shock art," and all around amazingness, this video of Lady Gaga from 2005 is just another reason that she makes me gaga.

I found this on my friend's Facebook page. Along with the gay activism, theatrical "shock art," and all-around amazingness, I now have one more reason to go Gaga:

Did I mention that she was classically trained in piano? That bridge she plays at the beginning of "Electric Kiss" is a ragtime, syncopated rhythm. It is the hardest thing in the entire world to play and she can do it with her eyes closed AND compose in it. I think I'm in love.

And just for kicks, some of my favorite quotes from the girl:

"I did this the way you are supposed to. I played every club in New York City and I bombed in every club and then killed it in every club and I found myself as an artist. I learned how to survive as an artist, get real, and how to fail and then figure out who I was as singer and performer. And, I worked hard."  (LadyGaga.com)

"What has been lost in pop music these days is the combination of the visual and the imagery of the artist, along with the music - and both are just as important...So, even though the carefree nature of the album is something that people are latching onto right away about my stuff, I hope they will take notice of the interactive, multimedia nature of what I'm trying to do...With my music, it's a party, it's a lifestyle, and it's about making the lifestyle the forefront of the music." (MTV)

And to her fans:

"I would just want to say thank you, I love you, I appreciate so much the support that you all give me. You listeners, the ones who found me first are, I believe, the future of great art thinkers. Because anyone that's found me now I really think is grabbing on to the ideas that I have, more than anything. It's about the music but it's also about the story. So thank you guys for loving and reading the story and being as into it and as passionate as I am." (About.com)
