Lady GaGa to release debut album The Fame + Just Dance single in the UK (watch video)

Lady GaGa

Looking for a decent bet on a tasty new pop starlet for 2009? Then look no further than Lady GaGa.

You've no doubt heard the name by now - plastered as it is across great swathes of the worldwide web - but who exactly is she? Take the name and roll it around on your tongue a little while: Lady. GaGa. The 'Lady' is straightforward and the 'GaGa’ pretty obvious (from Queen's Radio GaGa if you're really struggling), but the rest is far from simple.

She is a songwriter who learnt piano aged four, wrote her first song at 13, won early admission to the esteemed Tisch School of the Arts at 17, and writes tunes so irresistible that the Pussycat Dolls and Britney Spears have each donned haute couture creations from the Haus of GaGa.

She's a performance artist who spent her teenage years at any New York open mic night that would have her, and her early 20s performing in the city's Lower East Side clubs.

And now, at 22, she's a bona fide pop star. And how many of those do you know that fuse the chameleonic visual identity of David Bowie with a punk attitude and a sprinkling of pop magic dust?

With chart topping records across America, Europe and beyond, the UK is one of the few places Lady GaGa has yet to top the hit parade. But that's only because her forthcoming debut album, 'The Fame', and its electro-dancefloor-riot lead single "Just Dance" – don't land on these shores until early 2009.

That hasn't stopped critics from tipping her for UK success, however, because in pop star terms Lady GaGa is as close to a dead cert as you can get.

Lady GaGa's debut single, "Just Dance", is out digitally on 29 December 2008; physical formats follow on 5 January 2009.

The debut album, 'The Fame', is released 19 January 2009.
