** The black and white dance scene is an homage to the choreographer of ''Cabaret'', BobFosse, and the dance is very similar to his style.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Arguably more disturbing than ''Bad Romance'' and ''Paparazzi.'' While they were still about sex slavery and murder, the endings were funny in context, and there was still a lot of decent FanService. This one is an especially nightmarish, [[FauxSymbolism densely symbolic]] take on Don't Ask, Don't Tell, the ending is [[NightmareFace the worst part]], and the FetishFuel is even ''more'' subjective. It's especially bad coming after the silly, over-the-top "Telephone".

* YourCostumeNeedsWork: When she was a guest judge on ''Series/RupaulsDragRace'' in the Season 9 premier, she pranked the queens by entering the work room with them, making think she was just a really good CelebrityImpersonator (as one queen remarked, "I see who the Derrick Berry[[note]]A famous Music/BritneySpears impersonator who was a contestant in the previous season[[/note]] of the season is."). For added laughs, she even appeared in the ConfessionCam in boy-drag as "Ronnie". When she revealed herself as the real deal, the queens ''completely lost their shit.''

[[folder: Tropes Applying to Let's Play A Trope Game About Lady Gaga]]



* ConceptAlbum: Oddly enough, considering she's a dance-pop star, all of her major releases thus far qualify: ''The Fame'' is about, well, fame; ''The Fame Monster'' is about the darker side of fame and Gaga's personal fears; ''Born This Way'' is about outcasts and rebels.

''ARTPOP'' is self-explanatory, being about art and pop culture, but also has more personal themes like deconstructing her image as a popstar diva. (And, of course, this being Gaga, lots of stuff about sex.)

* BiTheWay

to:

** Also the subject of "Aura".
* BiTheWayBiTheWay: In a few songs, like "Poker Face" and "Sexxx Dreams".



* CigaretteOfAnxiety: "Mary Jane Holland" is about being anxious and wanting to self-medicate with marijuana, but as a recovering drug addict she can't (see FunctionalAddict).

* FunWithAcronyms: Girl Under You
* GenderBender: In her "Lovegame" video, there is a scene she continuously switches the sex of the police officer she is making out with. And Jo Calderone. She also'made a song called G.U.Y. for Girl Under You...

to:

* FunWithAcronyms: Girl Under You
"G.U.Y". It stands for "girl under you", and also contains the SpearCounterpart "G.I.R.L." (guy I'm romancing, loves).
* FunctionalAddict: She has been very open about her drug problems in the past, including using copious amounts of marijuana and cocaine to cope with anxiety and to help along the creative process.
* GenderBender: In her "Lovegame" video, there is a scene she continuously switches the sex of the police officer she is making out with.
**
And Jo Calderone. She also'made a song called G.Calderone, her drag king alter ego.
** Also in "G.
U.Y. for Girl Under You...Y".



** "Do What U Want" is a pretty blatant example, even for her.



* LargeHam: While not as apparent in public appearances (save some performances) at her concerts she goes crazy. By her own admission she is the "largest ham in the oven." In the 2010 Grammy's, she finally made it apparent.
