Musical style and influences

Lady Gaga has been influenced by glam rock musicians such as David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, as well as pop music artists such as Madonna and Michael Jackson.[12] John Dingwall of Daily Record  wrote: "[Gaga] says she has been inspired by Madonna and the late Michael Jackson, but her number one inspiration has been Freddie Mercury."[65] The Queen song "Radio Ga Ga" inspired her stage name.[66] She commented: "I adored Freddie Mercury and Queen had a hit called Radio Gaga. That's why I love the name... Freddie was unique - one of the biggest personalities in the whole of pop music."[65] Madonna told Rolling Stone that she sees "[her]self in Lady Gaga."[67] In response to the comparisons between herself and Madonna, Lady Gaga stated: "I don't want to sound presumptuous, but I've made it my goal to revolutionise pop music. The last revolution was launched by Madonna 25 years ago."[65] Fashion icon/actress/singer Grace Jones has also been cited as an inspiration.[68] She has often been likened to Blondie singer Debbie Harry.[69][70] Alice Cooper called her style "vaudevillian".[71]

2005–2007: Career beginnings

Music producer Rob Fusari, who helped her write some of her earlier songs, compared her vocal style to that of Freddie Mercury. Fusari helped create the moniker Gaga, after the Queen song "Radio Ga Ga". The singer was in the process of trying to come up with a stage name, when she received a text message from Fusari that read "Lady Gaga".[16]

Every day, when Stef came to the studio, instead of saying hello, I would start singing "Radio Ga Ga". That was her entrance song. [Lady Gaga] was actually a glitch; I typed 'Radio Ga Ga' in a text and it did an autocorrect so somehow 'Radio' got changed to 'Lady'. She texted me back, "That's it." After that day, she was Lady Gaga. She’s like, "Don’t ever call me Stefani again."[16]
—Rob Fusari

I've heard many people say that "GaGa is trying to be the new Madonna."


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!
