Lady Gaga is shutting down the iconic New York venue Roseland Ballroom, which will close its doors forever in 2014. The pop star will play a sold-out concert in her hometown venue on March 28, 30, 31 and April 2.
To advertise the concert, Gaga is using an image a photographer took of her in 2008 before she hit superstardom. The photographer stopped her on the street and asked to take her picture; when he asked who she was, she said, “I’m Lady Gaga. A singer/songwriter. You’re going to know me one day.”
this is how the posters look like irl:
they're all over New York!
*read the story of the photographer's encounter with Gaga here
"One fine day in August 2008 I was shooting street style for style.com in the Meatpacking District. My editor and I were trolling for stylish folks when we happened upon the young woman posing above. When we approached her she was shopping with her mom but took a moment to pose for a photo. After taking three frames I asked for her info and in a very serious tone she responded, I am Lady Gaga - a singer/songwriter. It took all my energy to not break into hysterics, needless to say I let out a laugh later that day.
Sure enough it only took a couple months until she started popping up everywhere. After recounting this story recently to a friend I decided to dig up the photos. It seems that I caught her in the early stages of transformation into the cyborg we know and love today."
watcha think of the poster guys? i like the simplicity of it.
