Lady Gaga: Biggest Pop Star on the Planet

A few weeks ago I heard Lady Gaga on the radio. I’m still trying to figure if she is style or substance. You may or may not be a fan of her music, but you have to admit, she is captivating. She was on the radio after a concert and was promoting her latest music video for Marry The Night.

Dreams Do Come True

Gaga talked about her early days while struggling as an artist and looking for her first recording contract. What was interesting was her dream. She said, “She wanted to be the biggest pop star on the planet.” The interviewer said it is easy to see now, but did she always feel this way? Gaga continued by passionately claiming that even if she never signed and became successful, she would still be the biggest pop star on the planet, in her mind. Just no one else would know it. What was also admirable was her view on concerts. She goes into every performance thinking there are fans seeing her for the first time and she wants them to have just as memorable of an experience like the many other fans before them.

Final Thoughts

We may never be the biggest pop star on the planet like Lady Gaga. But we can have dreams like paying down our debt, controlling our spending, and producing a successful blog. Start with a dream, ideally it is also your passion. Set goals to help get you there. Before Lady Gaga became Lady Gaga, she needed to create demo tapes, get them to DJ’s, and network with record executives. Find your goals that will get you to your dream and execute your plan. Dreams and goals are terrific, but it will only be terrific in your mind. Take action like Lady Gaga and your dream can come true.

Stay Inspired!

    I disagree we can be whatever you want to be! All you need is a goal and a plan. If you believe in something and are willing to do what is necessary, you can succeed. I may not have the talent to be a singer, but I can be something else.

  3. I am sorry, but using Lady Gaga as an example is a bit far fetched. I never want to uphold her as an inspiration. She got where she is because she is outlandish. I don’t even know if talent is involved. Her lyrics are disgusting and she as a person is a bit revolting. Sorry, but if I’m going to become inspired I’ll look to Jesus.

      Hi Jon. I appreciate your friendship and sincerely apologize if my post offended you. I can understand your very negative reaction. Thanks for taking the time to let me know how you felt. On my end, I’ve been pushing myself personally, professionally, and on my blog. I even ventured out into podcasting which I would never have dreamed of a year ago. Lady Gaga’s interview answers resonated with me, motivated me, and inspired me. I also wanted to share this with others so they could benefit from the same effect. Perhaps I was being naive and narrow minded. I isolated and focused on what I needed and wanted, momentarily ignoring her other questionable traits. What I saw was a virtual unknown, who struggled and even got let go from her first contract, perservered and made her dream come true. This whole experience has been very eye opening for me. What I thought was an innocent, motivational message might not be seen the same way by all. Thank you again for teaching me a valuable lesson. But I hope you can see my point of view and intention as well.

    I don’t like a lot of what GaGa stands for, but I do recognize her talent and can appreciate her philosophy about being a performer. When I used to manage a show I would often remind my performers that even if they were becoming bored with their roles or the shows they should always remember that for the audience the experience was brand new. Any entertainer should be more concerned with what the audience is getting out of a performance more so than what they themselves are getting out of it.

    And yes! The way to achieve a dream is to pursue it and believe in yourself.

    Tossing It Out

  5. I respect her focused positive attitude. Great performer. Queen Elizabeth even gives her a thumbs up! I think that says more about the Queen than LGG.

    Inspiring post Buck, it’s important to have big dreams. Good message.

  6. Great post. I really respect lady Gaga. She encourages and stands for the right things. I think she is a great role model for youth and adults. I too think we should set goals and work to fulfill them. We owe it to ourselves to try and anything is possible, it just takes work. Thanks for the motivational and inspirational post.
