Gaga Roundup

There's been no shortage of magazines, lately, dissecting the popularity and stardom of the Lady Gaga.

First, New York magazine's Gaga-quotation-filled piece, "Growing up Gaga," where the pop star says something I don't like: "Pop stars should not eat." (The rest, however, is pretty fascinating, even if you've read a lot of about her)

Second, a DJ-friend writes a memoir for Esquire about his relationship with Gaga before she made it big. He reveals information and photos that are uncomfortably intimate yet still boring. That's "Lady Gaga: The Grandmother of Pop"

Finally, the Atlantic pulls apart Gaga as object, symbol, and artist in "The Last Pop Star."
