Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga by Maureen CallahanStop feeding me bullshit. Tell me the truth.--Lady Gaga, 2009
I hate the truth. I hate the truth so much I prefer a giant dose of bullshit any day over the truth.--Lady Gaga, 2010
In little over a year, Stefani Germanotta, a struggling performer in New Yorks Lower East Side burlesque scene, has become the global demographic-smashing pop icon known as Lady Gaga. She is a once-in-a-decade artist, a gifted singer, composer, designer, and performance artist who mixes high and low culture, the avant-garde with the accessible, authenticity with artifice.
Who is Lady Gaga? She is a twenty-four-year-old woman whose stage mantra--Im a free bitch!--is the polar opposite of who she is offstage: isolated, insecure, and unable to be alone. She is an outre artist who wanted to be a sensitive singer-songwriter, whose musical heroes include Britney Spears, Billy Joel, and Bruce Springsteen. She is a woman who says no man can ever compete with her career, but who still isnt over the ex-boyfriend who said she was too ambitious. She claims not to care what people think, but spends her downtime online, reading what people have to say about her. She claims to be a con artist and utterly authentic. She is never less than compelling.
Based on over fifty original interviews with friends, employees, rivals, and music industry veterans, Poker Face is the first in-depth biography of the extraordinary cultural phenomenon that is Lady Gaga.

She is the star Madonna always wanted to be. She is multi-talented, strong, and convincing, but fragile and vulnerable at the same time. Hollywood is full of stars, but few among them have the talent to touch us with acting and singing alike. Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Barbra Streisand—they were all masters of every genre they covered, singing, dancing and making their audiences laugh and cry. They were equally beloved on stage and on the silver screen. For a long time, there has been no doubt that Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, 32, known as Lady Gaga, is an outstanding singer who understands how to write songs that tug on our heartstrings, but those who have witnessed her acting figure quite rightly that she is the woman Madonna always wanted to be.
