The Fame and The Fame Monster
by Lady Gaga
LADY GAGA could be a cannibal. If you don’t believe me, have a listen to the most dental song to date, “Teeth” (from her EP The Fame Monster), in which the 23-year-old New Yorker growls: “Take a bite of my bad girl meat.” The fantasy of being eaten alive recurs in “Monster” with the lyric, “He ate my heart/ He licked his lips, said to me/ Girl, you look good enough to eat.”
It is this uncanny blend of the sexual and the monstrous that made Gaga the biggest breakout performer of 2009, not to mention the diva du jour among club-goers and circuit boys.
