Will 'Born This Way' Be the Most Important Album of Lady Gaga's Career? Lady Gaga is at once the biggest pop star in the world and not really a pop star at all -- at least not in the conventional sense. In myriad ways, she's unlike Britney Spears, who despite a recent string of hits and a well-received album seems about as removed from her own career as she can be while still being physically in the room with a mic strapped to her head. And she's a totally different animal than real-life friends Katy Perry and Rihanna, hit-makers who share an affinity for letting big-name producers and songwriters do their artistic heavy-lifting. “Music Philosophy”, combining music and graphics “Music Philosophy” is an interesting project that combines music and graphics.
