The moment I thought of inspiring people about being like ‘Lady Gaga’, the very next second what clicked into my mind was The imminent next generation. Yes, all those who agree with my statement, don’t you all agree that we appraise her for her badass trait and her quirky outlook. And among her fans, a major portion belongs to the recent and upcoming generation those get inspired the most from her personality to be the next ‘Lady Gaga’.
Let’s hear it from ‘the queen of pop’ herself about how she inspires the masses:
1. ‘I try to not focus on what people expect from me.’
Stefani was thought of being born with the gift of music. While she studied at the Tisch school of arts at the New York university, she wanted to lead her life and her career on her own terms. This led her to leave college as the sophomore and home in on music entirely for a more flourished future of her career.
Focusing on your dreams and goals is an essential element we learnt from Lady Gaza’s life to be like her.
2. ‘I don’t see myself as ever being like anybody else.’
This is the true Lady Gaga essence. She has always been the talk of town for her scandalous outfits and her vivacious performances, be it her meat dress or the performances she did without her pants on, she nailed all her looks. No matter what people think of you, live your life as you desire it to be. Live the Lady Gaga style.
3. ‘it’s cooler to be strong.’
Though her songs are wild, though her songs are tendentious, when you get a chance to hear her latest numbers, you will sense a soft corner of her heart somewhere residing in them. The face for the world is strong, is cool, even if you are deeply emotional inside, just like the Lady Gaga way.
4. ‘when I say to you, there is nobody like me and there never was, that is a statement I want every woman to feel and make about themselves.’
Though Stefani was made to attend private schools but still her childhood was not completely easy to lead one. She had to face continuous bullying from children over her ‘rabbit teeth’ and big nose. Also, her uncanny nature also added fuel to the bullying. But Lady Gaga was as strong as a little girl as she is now. And this led to evolution of her distinct personality on the world stage.
5. ‘Ignore all hatred and criticism. Live for what you create and die protecting it.’
The young and extremely talented Stefani in the musical niche, also started attending acting classes on weekends. She wanted to enhance her qualities for a better perspective towards her career in the future. The talent started peeping out and Stefani started grabbing lead roles in the school plays. But this added fuel to the fire of jealousy among her classmates who began to bully her calling her with names like ‘germ’ or ‘dirt’. But as she said, she did and stood as an ideal for all of us.
6. ‘A record deal doesn’t make you an artist. You make yourself an artist.’
The teenage Stefani performed at open Mic nights with a band she formed. She also made herself successful in playing the lead roles in the guys and dolls and A funny thing happened on the way to the forum. Though she tried her luck through these itsy-bitsy chores but believed in the power of her work and her efforts rather than just record-breaking deals.
7. ‘Once you kill a cow, you have to make a burger.’
Stefani always desired of making music her career and this forced her to leave her studies at an early stage. Though she had always led a privileged life as child but still she had all sorts of bumps and puddles on her way to become a celebrated singer. She lived in the cheapest apartment she found in New York and was made to sleep on a futon. She also worked part time as a waitress and as singer and pianist at the downtown cabaret clubs. But even going though all these, she never left dreaming big of getting record deals one day or you can say, making burger one day of the cows that were slaughtered.
8. You have to stop crying, and you have to go and kick some ass.’
As they say, you never always get up to bright sunny day. Life has always kept some surprises for you, some good and some bad. You have to decide as how you have to respond towards these surprises. Stefani met a similar surprise at a tender age of 19, when she was raped by a man who was more than double of her age. Though she was left in trauma but legends are formed through extreme hard-ships and she knew that very well.
She didn’t let anyone know about this accident for as much as seven years and left it as a well-kept secret of the past while she focussed on her future.
9. ‘I work very hard, but when God opens that door for you, when life opens that door for you, I should say-I think it is important to be giving, to return the love back.’
The extremely tough and hard-cored Lady Gaga has a philanthropic heart inside who every so often thinks of returning back the love by serving the people. She has created her own charity, born this way foundation, who serves for the mental healthy living of the people. Often, we also come across news of her pleading for sexual harassment survivors, Chronic diseases survivors and LGBT youth.
10. ‘bare your struggles very close to your heart and have them be a part of you that you are proud of, instead of something that you are ashamed of.’
All those Gaga fans who are watching this, memorize the time when Gaga met a hip injury during her born this way tour. We got sundered from our queen of pop for longer than ever 6 months. But Gaga is the girl who never knew to give up or forget her struggles. Those 6 months led to evolution of Gaga as a human and we met a brand new Gaga with a new album ARTPOP who connected to her fans raising her notes more towards the social issues of addiction and sexuality.
11. ‘you have to be unique and different, and shine in your own way.’
Lady Gaga is the Live specimen of how you can sculpture your own selfhood without being under the task and constant criticism of the society. At the tender age of 20 she was signed by Island Def jam to launch her and transform her as an established pop star. But in a short while she realized that they wanted nothing but a puppet to act on their commands. Consequently, the daredevil Gaga responded just opposite to what she was asked to do. No doubt, she was dropped from the label within just 3 months but she gained self-respect And dignity for herself.
12. ‘creativity for me is religious.’
This is the signature style of Lady Gaga. You remember her for her blonde hair or her meat dress. She is extremely experimental with her looks. And every time her looks make heads turn With their unlikeness. Infuse that creativity from Lady Gaga from her dance numbers to her disco flash lights outfits to be like her.
13. I had a boyfriend who told me I would never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I would fail. I said to him, ‘someday, when we are not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee without hearing or seeing me.’
The determination and composure we can feel from this quote of Lady Gaga is an inspiration in itself as how one can be successful on our own. She found her best pals in books when people around her abandoned her. Andy Warhol’s inspirational books led her to experiment with herself, find unique ways and make a distinct place of herself in the industry. All her efforts became fruitful, when she was announced ‘the most downloaded female act in a year.’
You love her or you hate her, you can never neglect her for her eccentric magnetizing personality.
Do not allow people to dim your shine, because they are blinded. Tell them to put on some sunglasses, because we were born this way!
