Lady Gaga is already a VMA icon. Since she first made her VMA debut in 2009, she has become a force to be reckoned with. She annually makes headlines for her fierce sense of style, her fierce sense of self and the fact that she's always willing to do the unexpected. That combination has made her a fan favorite. And, she said those qualities are an extension of her as a celebrity.
Gaga is nominated for Best Female Video and Best Video With a Message for "Born This Way," as well as Best Art Direction and Best Choreography for "Judas." in 2011.
"I think something that's always been very important to me ... is that the fame as an art form has always been an interesting stage,".
Lady Gaga's house in Bel Air is quite a suprised according to Gawker, no bloody piano, no closets stuffed with bizarre couture, no ensemble of vinyl-clad back-up dancers, just neatly manicured lawns and your typical McMansion artsy lighting and Jacuzzi tub.
Lady Gaga leased this 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom Mediterranean estate for $25,000 per month in October of 2009. According to listing information the high-walled and gated residence, located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, has 6,143 square feet of interior living space. Amenities include a double height entry with marble floors and a curving staircase, french doors throughout, an office/ library that opens to the pool terrace with outdoor kitchen. The hillside property has a resort-style swimming pool and spa with a terrace that hangs over a canyon with unobstructed panoramic views of the city.
