How do you know you are amazingly awesome and successful?! When there is a class about you taught in university.
So yep, Lady gaga is awesome indeed. (or she has very devoted fans who happen to be scholars)
Why you ask? Because Professor Mathieu Deflem in University of South Carolina is going to teach a class on her next semester. The class is going to be called Lady Gaga and the Sociology of the Fame, and I wish I could take it. The main goal is to explore what makes a person famous and what being famous means in today’s culture, and I am curious what the professor has to say.
Fame is a complex issue, especially in a world where a person can be “famous” because they bitch in video format om YouTube about last night’s TV shows or blog about someone’s latest fashion endeavor. So for Gaga, who has a billion hits on YouTube, sells out concert tickets for full venues in the matter of minutes, and has been one of the most talked about personalities in the world for the past couple of years… yep fame is definitely something to say she has.
I just hope the professor keeps the class fun and interesting, because it will be unfortunate if it turns out to be a gag.
I went to see the Monster Ball and this shot is basically my favourite part of the whole show- Gaga laying on the piano hitting a note with her heel and her band improvising on it. Genius!
