I liked the suit, makeup and shoes, too. The only problem was the wig, but it really wasn't that horrible.

That Golden Globe win really turned her entire career around.

 

It wasn't the Golden Globe. The change started with her SOUND OF MUSIC tribute last February, and her toning down her costume antics. The Golden Globes just furthered it.

Not really, the Sound Of Music Tribute was a successful performance, no more than that. That is not what is changing the narrative for her. She has the makings to really comeback to an extent and become prominent once again, and that has just recently been established due to the good will of her surprise Golden Globe win, which has legitimized her in Hollywood in a new, revitalizing way. Her Grammy performance did not do that. Neither really did the Super Bowl. The golden globe win, is when things really started changing again for her. She could still fall flat on her face, but it feels like people are really rooting for her not to at this point, compared to how it was in late 2011 and onward, where it felt like they were waiting for her to fall on her face.

Yes, really! It's been about a year since she started turning her image around. You may not have noticed it at the time, but following the album with TB, this was the FIRST time in eons that people stood up and took notice of her talent, instead of condemning her for her antics. Even the biggest haters (some of them here) could not find a single thing to criticize and (wisely) stayed silent. After that, the whole perception of her started to change. You can go a back even in this very thread and see that. Getting the part on AHS helped, then the Golden Globe and, of course, the Super Bowl. It's been a process of over a year. Of course, this doesn't mean that winning that GG didn't go a long way, but there's been positive talk ever since SOUND OF MUSIC.

The album with Tony Bennett didn't do much of anything either, Gaga pretty much treated it like a side project. We can agree to disagree but I think the watershed moment was her Golden Globe win. The Sound Of Music tribute performance was just that a performance. It didn't really sow the seeds of a comeback. I don't think it did much of anything for her since she has more or less been on radio silence until the GG's.

I knew Gaga would nail the Bowie tribute! She's such a great performer. This was another plus for her. Next up, the Oscars.

She was absolutely phenomenal. People will be twisting themselves around like pretzels in order to find something negative to say :lol: The video is here. She slayed.

As a Bowie fan, I don't think her voice was suitable for his material (just felt a little too staged for my linking), but at least she tried and had some energy (which is more than can be said for some of the other performances).

One of the collaborators on Gaga's next album speaks a little about the next record. Doesn't actually reveal much at all, but good to hear work is being done.
