If you guessed the second group, you’re right. Her music makes you want to run straight to a club and start dancing. It may not be all that meaningful, but it’s fun to listen to. Her debut album, Fame, has achieved worldwide success. Find out more about her from Ella and Dale.

Dale:  OK, I gotta know. Are you a fan of Lady Gaga?

Ella:  I am a mega-fan. It’s kind of a guilty pleasure, but I really like her.

Dale:  “Just Dance” is one of the most popular songs and it does sound really catchy, it’s really fun, and when anybody plays it, everybody just seems to kinda move their body. But I don’t know anything about the artist at all.

Ella:  She started out performing with drag queens and go-go dancers in New York.

Dale:  Is she a…is she a drag queen?

Ella:  No, she’s a woman, but sometimes she looks a little something else. But she has this kind of glam rock...It’s very techno but pop. It’s just very catchy, and I like all the other songs on her CD too.

Dale:  How many other songs does she…I mean…

Ella:  Oh, she just came out with a new album. And all of them are kind of the same style, and kind of some sexual innuendos.

Dale:  Are they danceable?

Ella:  They’re all very danceable. Her new song that just came out, “Poker Face,” is another catchy tune that people are obsessed with.

Dale:  It sounds like an innuendo!

討論

“Just Dance” is a really popular single right now. Dale has heard it a lot and he finds it really catchy and fun to dance to. But he doesn’t know anything about the artist who sings it, Lady Gaga. Ella tells him a little bit about Lady Gaga’s history. It sounds like she has a wild past!

Ella is a little embarrassed by how much she loves Lady Gaga. Maybe that’s because Lady Gaga is all about partying and having fun. Her songs are sexy and they have great beats. But she isn’t very serious.

Do you like to go dancing? What are your favorite songs to hear when you go to clubs?

OMG! I’m really surprised cause u guys call her music “techno music”! I have been at many events and definitely I can’t agree with u! In my opinion it’s pop music which is good to play at the clubs cause her songs are danceable. I’m not a big fan of Lady Gaga but she found out how to become a famous and she’s been doing very well for a many years. I prefer a bit different kind of music but when I’m at the party and dj’s playing her songs I can’t stop moving! She’s a star and I wish her good luck :] cheers!

Nowadays Lady Gaga is one of my favorite singer and i really don't fell guilty about it! All the time we're surrounded by bad things, sometimes we have to get a little bit of fun.

In dance clubs, I have to listen to techno music specially Gaga's songs! And lots of people here loves her too, even thinking she's not bery attractive. I like her style.
