In 2009 debuteert Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta met twee opeenvolgende nummer-1-hits. Zowel Just Dance als Pokerface zijn daarmee de meest succesvolle singles van het debuutalbum The Fame.

Van de zangeres, die haar artiestennaam heeft ontleend aan Radio Ga Ga van Queen, verschijnt in 2011 haar tweede album, Born This Way, waarvan de titeltrack haar derde nummer-1-hit wordt in de Top 40.

Van haar derde album Artpop wordt Applause in 2013 een hit. De opvolger, Do What U Want (samen met R-Kelly) is in december van dat jaar haar dertiende hit. Na een duetalbum met Tony Bennett en het ingetogen Till It Happens To You keert Lady GaGa in het najaar van 2016 weer terug naar haar eerdere sound met de single Perfect Illusion. Lady Gaga vervangt in april 2017 de zwangere Beyoncé tijdens het Coachella-festival. Na haar optreden verrast ze met een nieuwe track, The Cure.

In 2018 schrijft ze met Bradley Cooper aan de soundtrack van de film A Star Is Born. Van dat album, dat zowel in Amerika als het Verenigd Koninkrijk de eerste plaats bereikt, groeit Shallow uit tot één van de populaire nummers.


Songtekst

Tryin' to get control
Pressure's takin' its toll
Stuck in the middle zone
I just want you alone
My guessing game is strong
Way too real to be wrong
Caught up in your show
Yeah, at least now I know

It wasn't love
It wasn't love
It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)
Mistaken for love
It wasn't love
It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)

You were a perfect illusion

I don't need eyes to see
I felt you touchin' me
High like amphetamine
Maybe you're just a dream
That's what it means to crush
Now that I'm wakin' up
I still feel the blow
But at least now I know

It wasn't love
It wasn't love
It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)
Mistaken for love
It wasn't love
It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)

Where are you, cause I can't see (It was a perfect illusion)
But I feel you watchin' me
Dilated, falling free
In a modern ecstasy

Where are you, cause I can't see (It was a perfect illusion)
But I feel you watchin' me
But I feel you watchin' me (Illusion)
But I feel you watchin' me (Mistaken for love)

Where were you, cause I can't see
But I feel you watchin' me (Mistaken for love)
Dilated, falling free
In a modern ecstasy (Mistaken for love)
In a modern ecstasy
In a modern ecstasy

I'm over the show
Yeah, at least now I know

It wasn't love
It wasn't love
It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)
Mistaken for love
It wasn't love
It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)

You were a perfect illusion
It was a perfect illusion

It was a perfect illusion
Somewhere in all the confusion
It was a perfect illusion
Illusion, illusion

It was a perfect illusion
Somewhere in all the confusion
You were so perfect
You were a, you were a perfect illusion
