Hello, here is part of Lady Gaga's original record contract with Interscope. Click on the image if you want to see more, including a provision that would mean Gaga can make no money on streaming services, which do not pay much anyway.
Recorded in March 2008, the video for Just Dance was released in May 2008. Here is a cool behind-the-scenes video of its shooting, starring Lady Gaga and DJ VH1!
P.S. Gaga wrote Just Dance in January 2008 after she had arrived in LA. Jimmy Iovine did not produce Born To Run, but was one of the album's engineers. He was producing Flame at the time, the band in which Bob Leone, Gaga's first unofficial manager, played keyboards.
Friday, February 12, 2016. It was announced this morning that Lady Gaga will be joining Mattel’s Monster High lineup of dolls, as the brand’s first celebrity doll! Lady Gaga and her sister and costume designer Natali Germanotta are designing a doll in Gaga’s likeness that "encourages girls to be their most unique selves." The doll will be available this Fall.
The Gaga doll is the first project between Monster High and the Born This Way Foundation as part of their partnership from October 2015 to inspire empowerment and acceptance among young people. All proceeds of the doll will benefit the Born This Way Foundation to inspire a kinder, more accepting and braver world.
