Lady Gaga's SNL Debut

In case you missed it, Lady Gaga made her Saturday Night Live with a performance of Paparazzi and other hits. She also performed in two sketches with Andy Samberg, Kenan Thompson and extra-special surprise guest Madonna! It was a great episode of SNL, with lots of laughs and great music!


Check out all of Lady Gaga's show-stealing moments below, after her bio!


Lady Gaga: Bio

It's no wonder that little girl from a good Italian New York family turned into the exhibitionist, multi-talented singer-songwriter with a flair for theatrics that she is today: Lady Gaga. "I was always an entertainer. I was a ham as a little girl and I'm a ham today," says Lady Gaga, 22. "I always loved rock and pop and theater. It's not just about the music. It's about the performance, the attitude, the look; it's everything. And, that is where I live as an artist and that is what I want to accomplish."


At age four Lady Gaga learned piano by ear. By age 13 she had written her first piano ballad. At 14 she played open-mike nights at clubs like New York's Bitter End at night and was teased for her quirky, eccentric style at the school she attended: Convent of the Sacred Heart School (other students included Nicky and Paris Hilton). At age 17 she became was one of 20 kids in the world to get early admission to Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. Signed by her 20th birthday and writing songs for other artists like the Pussycat Dolls before her debut album was even released, Lady Gaga has earned the right to reach for the sky.


It's been a while since a new pop artist has made her way in the music industry the old-fashioned/grass-roots way by paying her dues with seedy club gigs and self-promotion. This is one rising pop star who hasn't been plucked from a model casting call, born into a famous family, won a reality TV singing contest or emerged from a teen TV sitcom. "I did this the way you are supposed to. I played every club in New York City and I bombed in every club and then killed it in every club and I found myself as an artist. I learned how to survive as an artist, get real, and how to fail and then figure out who I was as singer and performer. And, I worked hard."

I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
