Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Pop music writer Morgan (coauthor of The Art of the LP) presents more than 100 mesmerizing color photographs that trace the rise to fame of the charismatic, inventive singer-songwriter Lady Gaga. He begins with her childhood on Manhattan's Upper West Side, her study of classical piano, playing in clubs at age 16, and her enrollment at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts at 17, followed by her emergence on the New York music scene in 2005. Her debut album, The Fame (2008), sold more than 10 million copies worldwide by 2010. Morgan profiles precursors and influences, from Andy Warhol and British designer Alexander McQueen to David Bowie, Boy George, Grace Jones, and Australian performer Leigh Bowery. He details her frenzied concerts, innovative narrative videos, and wild wardrobe--all displayed in glossy, full-bleed color that makes this splendiferous oversize (9-in.×12-in.) volume a hip optic delight. Curiously, with dozens of imaginative images to choose from, the Elizabeth Mihaltse jacket design is muted, blurry, and lacks impact. Nevertheless, it's inevitable that thousands of "little monsters" (as she affectionately calls her fans) will wait in bookstore lines to googoo over Gaga. (Nov. 2) (c)

Whether you are a Lady Gaga fan or not, you have to admit she's a very interesting woman. This is a great book that gives a lot of insight into her as an artist and her rise to stardom. This is a large book filled with great photos of the many sides of Lady Gaga.

This book would make a great gift for any Lady Gaga fan.

New for the holidays comes an account of the career to date of one Stefani Germanotta (aka: Lady Gaga). "Gaga" by Johnny Morgan is the best and most appropriate chronicle to date of the comet-like singer, performer who has captivated the world's attention with her outrageous music, couture and persona. Her early days, her ascendancy and the full extent of her head-spinning appearances are all documented here in a fashion that respects fashion in it's edgy, artful approach. Her intersections on art, music and fashion - influenced by everyone from Freddie Mercury to Grace Jones - show Gaga to be both a hybrid and her own lightning rod all at the same time and this large format book is exemplary in its juxtaposition of art, text, layout and photographs covering the short but explosive career of the artist. With thorough sourcing of interviews and stills, Gaga's message, both verbal and fashion-based, is in full effect with a book that is (finally) in sync with the style and performance of the singer herself.

I bought this as a gift since I am not into Lady Gaga myself. That being said, this is a good quality book with lots of pictures.

I recently had the opportunity to review this book, and it is truly a tome of information. Much has been said and discussed about Lady GaGa but this book takes it one step farther. With many never-before-seen photographs, stories, and juicy gossip, this book is a must-have for all "little monsters"!

My 10 year Little Monster wanted to do her school biography report on Lady Gaga, but needed a book that stated actual biographical facts about her life, upbringing, philosophy on life, etc. This book fit the bill- beautiful big, glossy photos, interesting facts. A few inappropriate photos of Gaga drinking, but overall it was interesting and informative.

This book is amazing! It has SO many Gaga quote and GREAT pictures. Its nice that it's hard back, which makes it very durable. It has TONS to read, so its worth the price. It maps out a lot of her life and is really informative. I love this book and I can't wait to read all of it!
The only negative is that I feel that it should have been shipped better, the cover isn't glossy, so any wear or scuff from packaging it showed up. It should be wrapped in proctive plastic or something. But in no way should that detract you from buying this book! It is great.

I think that this is the best book yet I have gotten on Gaga! It has so many nice pictures and it also tells about her in her early days of getting started. To all that think she is weird I feel quite the opposite. There is something special about her I cant put into words. This book made me understand her better and only love her more. You wont waste your money and you will be pleasantly suprised when you get it!!!!
