Joining Young on stage was his ‘Mile High Club’ co-star Cassadee Pope for a surprise performance of “Think of Me.” Dressed in a gold sequin top, black leather mini skirt, and black leather knee boots, that would make any ‘southern girl proud,’ Pope was a welcomed addition.

“Y’all are ridiculous, man,” he said to the crowd. “Thank you so much for my career.”

Rodeo Houston continues nightly with rodeo and concerts now till March 20 2016.

Lady Gaga Interview On Fame And Texas

Lady Gaga Interview On Fame And Texas

Growing Up In New York And Covered In Glitter, Lady Gaga Sits Down With About Magazine For The First Ever One-On-One Interview With An LGBT Texas Publication!

(HOUSTON) Dallas might have discovered her first at the ‘Round Up,’ but Houston’ LGBT media takes the gold for an exclusive interview.


As a little girl, she would sing along on her mini plastic tape recorder to Michael Jackson and Cyndi Lau per hits. She loved to get twirled in the air by her ‘daddy’ while jamming out to the sounds of the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. The precocious child would dance around the table at her family’s fancy Upper West Side restaurant, using the breadsticks as a baton. But her favorite past-time was ‘innocently greeting new babysitters in nothing but her birthday suit.’

It’s no wonder that little girl from a good New York Italian family, turned into the exhibitionist, multi­ talented singer-songwriter with a flair for theatrics that she is today: Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, aka Lady Gaga!

“Where are you now?” I asked in a simple text message to Lady Gaga. It was any regular interview. A journalist, named Spencer had convinced me to arrange this interview. “You have too,” he begged. “She’s going to be bigger than Madonna,” he said.

2009 was a whirlwind for Lady Gaga. She had recently been nominated for her debut album titled ‘The Fame,’ and it was slowly giving her solidification as a new ‘Pop Princess.’

“I’m just going to try and change the world, one sequin at a time.”- Lady Gaga

“I am currently in Canada,” Gaga responded. “I have a show in Toronto tonight.” In detail, she told me about her tour, and being on the road with a couple bands she ‘absolutely loved.’

“I’m with three amazing bands, Chester French, White Tie Affair and Cinema Bizarre. It’ so great to have them on the road with me.” Then she said my name. “You should check them out, Cade. They are great live bands and talented too.”  I had to sit back and think a moment. It’s not every day Lady Gaga is texting you, let alone pitching you on ‘her’ opening acts.

By the time I had arranged the interview, Spencer had forced her entire album into my head. It was great! I was hooked. I had become a fan. Every song had a hook, and it would soon be igniting dance floors across the world. I wanted on the Gaga wagon!

“The tour is playing some of the best places to hear live music,” Gaga says in a response. “I am playing everywhere from Wilten in LA to Terminal 5 in New York. All great venues to check out live music”

At the age of four years, old Gaga had mastered the piano by ear. When she was 13 she had written her first piano ballad. By the time she was 14, she was performing across New York’s open mic nights at the city’s Bitter End.

“I grew up in New York, even though I haven’t been home for some time now I still call it home.” She explains, hinting that the road, and tour, and publicity have kept her busy. “I love the energy and diversity, and the New York music scene. In fact, not sure if you know but ‘Just Dance’ came from my memorable nights out in New York.”

By the age of 17, Gaga would get early admission to the exclusive ‘Tisch School of The Arts’ at New York University, and when she turned 20 she had already wrote hit songs for none other than the ‘Pussycat Dolls.’ All before she even had her own album.

Of course in our back and fourth message-interview, I had to know what she thought of Texas. I did not know that just a few short weeks prior she had performed in Dallas.

“One of my personal favorite gigs ever was in Dallas,” Gaga replies. “The Round Up.  A gay two-step night.   I just got in the middle of the dance floor and went for it.” She says. “The boys went crazy. It went from two step line dancing to my disco stick …lol”.

Sadly Gaga explained that Houston would not be getting a stop from the ‘Fame’ tour. “Hopefully soon”! She says “I would love to be back and see you all soon”.

“But Houston, thank you for all the love and support. I can’t wait to be back and see you all.” ..xo Gaga

If you have not picked up, down loaded ‘The Fame’ album, do your self a favor and do it now. It will have you looking for the nearest dance floor.

She left me with a thought. Her personal plan. The larger picture. She doesn’t want to be a part of pop culture. She’s going to explore it inside and out. But until… “I’m just going to try and change the world, one sequin at a time.”
