Lady GaGa has recently announced that she has planned to release the song Paparazzi as her next single in the UK and Ireland.
LoveGame was supposed to be the next single released on these shores but GaGa (or her managment) decided that LoveGame would be banned due to it’s raunchy video which shows Lady GaGa almost naked in a see-through beaded suit and opening her legs to two men while dressed this way. The video was banned when it was released in Australia earlier this month and the lyrics “Let’s have some fun/this beat is sick/I wanna take a ride on your disco stick” has been frowned upon in both the US and Australia.
After scoring two No.1s in both Ireland and the UK with singles Just Dance and Poker Face. Seeking a third No.1 in both countries, GaGa has decided Paparazzi will be released as soon as possible as it is a safer release and “my favourite song on the album”.
So will it be her third No.1??? Well after hearing this on her debut album The Fame it’s not exactly what you’d expect after hearing her previous two singles. This isn’t exactly a club bouncer. It’s very ’80s synthpop, something you might of heard Madonna sing back then and it’s vocals are very captivating. GaGa goes for a lighter sound here her vocals sort of evoke a more lonely, ballady side but still have those surging synths we’re used to. It’s a pretty good song but not No.1 material. It will probably continue her reign of the charts though and all things cool in music at the moment.
So some of you might be a bit confused with GaGa. Basically GaGa has released two Worldwide singles: Just Dance and Poker Face plus her debut album The Fame and the EP The Cherrytree Sessions but if you’ve been surfing round YouTube, you might of seen the videos for the funky, bratty Beautiful, Dirty, Rich, the sweet and sunny Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say) and of course: LoveGame.
Well here’s a round-up of GaGa’s confusing discography:
Lady GaGa’s debut album was released as a standardtwelve track album as early as July 2008 in Canada and Oceania, it was then released to various parts of Europe in August 2008.

A sixteen track edition was released in January 2009 to the UK and Ireland. The revised edition of The Fame was released to Spain, Portugal, Latin America and Japan between the months of February and May 2009 afterwards.
