This book critically analyses the gender, sexuality and feminist identity representations in the musical and performance work of pop star Lady Gaga. It considers the implicit and symbolic meanings communicated about gender, sexuality and feminist identities through the intentional constructions of meaning and representations in Lady Gaga’s songs and music videos. Pop culture and pop music serve as contextual settings for this study, with semiotics and myth forming the main representation theories and methodological constructs of the project. Feminist and Queer theory are also prioritized in providing the primary discussion on understanding gender, sexuality and feminist identities, in ways that serve this study. Furthermore, the main argument of this book is that Lady Gaga as a pop star and celebrity uses her capacity of influence to communicate alternative and subversive meanings and ideas about gender, sexuality and feminist identities, through her music, performative and aesthetic representations in the mass media. Fundementally, this book argues the ways that these representations are disruptive and challenging to the dominant ideologies of patriarchy and hetero-normitivity.Biographie de l'auteur :
I am passionate about studying the media because of the power the media has in communicating and shaping information. I am interested in studying pop culture critically, by examining how Gender, Sexuality and Female power are represented in pop culture. My Master’s degree in Media Studies as granted me extensive knowledge on these topics.
