Best-selling author and celebrity journalist Ian Halperin takes an inside look at Lady Gaga’s career from her humble beginnings playing New York’s Lower East Side dive bars to sold out stadium concerts around the world. “Chasing Gaga” examines the meteoric – and sometimes controversial – rise to stardom of the first lady of pop. Ian speaks to key people who have followed her career from the beginning including book publisher Judith Regan, nightclub promoters, radio producers, fashion photographers and members of her original band. With her eccentric outfits and outlandish hairstyles and make-up, her quick rise to fame has inspired millions of “Little Monsters” to express themselves, but also drawn skepticism from critics and fellow musicians who have accused her of “borrowing” from the likes of Madonna, David Bowie and Bette Midler.
