Where does the line exist between Gaga and "Stefani"?
Is anyone else still confused over the “Lady Gaga/Stefani” topic?
If Gaga is her alter-ego, a personification of Stefani’s confidence and artistic spirit, it is also, therefore, a representative of “Stefani”–basically, a certain side of her personality. But nowadays, the division between Gaga/Stefani has started to dissolve, as she begins to dress more conventionally and use her real name in acting projects.
I think we know that Gaga was always pretty “genuine”–maybe a bit exaggerated during “The Fame” era when she acted more quiet, reserved and mysterious, but genuine nonetheless, especially when it came to interacting with her fans. But, it’s still kind of confusing, and I’m not sure even Gaga has it all figured out.
She told Jamie Lee Curtis that Gaga is a compilation of the best bits of her identity (similar to how Ben describes his drag persona ‘Ben Dela Creme’).
I’m puzzling myself by recalling specific moments and trying to classify them as either Gaga or Stefani, or both: the personified positive personality traits vs. the all encompassing personality. Both are really her, but one is something of an amplified version.
It’s hard to grasp. What do you guys think?
