GREY MATTERS: TREE OF GAGA, PART 1

Editor's note: This is the first entry in a weekly column by Ian Grey titled 'Grey Matters.' Every Friday Ian will write on an array of topics, including pop music, TV, cinema, viral videos, and whatever the hell else strikes his fancy, in his own inimitable way. His debut piece is about Lady Gaga, about whom I knew practically zilch prior to becoming friends with Ian. It's presented here in a format that Ian calls "maximalist," with sidebars and 'Easter egg'-type pages branching out from the main article -- thus the "tree" in the headline. (You can access them by clicking the hypertext links.) There is also a companion piece, "Tree of Gaga, Part 2: Born This Way annotated track list," which you can read by clicking here. --MZS
