Lady Gaga is the best thing that has happened to the mainstream in quite some time. She is a creative genius, both with her performances and her music. Until you've seen her music stripped down or her performing live in concert, you will not know exactly how extraordinarily talented Gaga is. Her soon to be released album, Born This Way, was deemed by her to be "the greatest album of the decade." While that may be going a little far, I can imagine it being one of the most creative mainstream pop albums of the year. Gaga recently tweeted the release dates for the first single and the album, which are February 13th and May 23rd respectively. I honestly can not wait to get my hands on this record, and anyone who thinks that Gaga is a gimmick can not judge true talent. Stay updated on the album on her website here.
