Lady Gaga's Chromatica era is a nod back to her early days as the scrappy, avant-garde burgeoning pop star. She's even gone back to one of her original stylists , Nicola Formichetti, for the new album, who back in the late aughts was part of her Haus of Gaga creative team and the man behind her infamous meat dress at the MTV Video Music Awards. It goes without saying what she's accomplished since the release of her first album in the summer of , but it's worth noting anyway: She's won Grammys, a Golden Globe, has been nominated for an Oscar, pulled off dramatic fashion feats at the Met Gala and beyond, on top of becoming one of — if not the — biggest pop star of a generation. With that, it's almost difficult to comprehend that there was a time when designers were hesitant to dress Lady Gaga. The video's stylist and Gaga's friend B. Akerlund was behind the video's designer-heavy costumes. The video was a huge feat for Gaga at the time, who was then a relatively unknown singer to the world. She had released a few singles prior, including "Just Dance" and "Poker Face," but had yet to establish herself as a superstar who was here for the long haul.
Watch the trailer. Title: Lady Gaga: Paparazzi Video Music video for Lady Gaga 's Paparazzi. The year was , and Lady Gaga had just burst on the scene. Katy Perry was making waves with her debut album, but nothing could compare to the cultural juggernaut that was Lady Gaga. Just Dance was a sleeper hit, and at the time many thought it would be a fluke, but Gaga followed it up with Poker Face, a genre-defining hit with a clever bisexuality metaphor. While Poker Face showed that Gaga was going to be more than a one hit wonder, Paparazzi, and the music video and performances that went along with it proved that Gaga would be an enduring force in pop culture.
It was released as the album's fifth and final single by Interscope Records. Gaga wrote and produced the song with Rob Fusari. The song portrays Gaga's struggles in her quest for fame, as well as balancing success and love. Musically, it is an uptempo techno-pop and dance-pop song whose lyrics describe a stalker following somebody to grab attention and fame. The single was released on July 6, , in the United Kingdom and four days later in Australia.
