A Master of the Art of Fame
That’s how Lady Gaga (Stefani Germanotta) describes herself in this 60 Minutes interview. And I guess it’s hard to argue with that. She says she’s a student of fame, of the sociology of fame.
She says part of mastering the art of fame is getting people to pay attention to the things you want them to pay attention to and not pay attention to the things you don’t want them to pay attention to.
She talks about maintaining a sense of privacy without feeling like you’re withholding anything from your fans. She appears to be surprisingly insightful, a good student at a Catholic girl’s school, not a “vomit in the club kinda girl” she says. She says people take her too seriously and not seriously enough at the same time.
Entrepreneurs should also think about the persona they are presenting to the marketplace. Too many are playing the role of salesman rather than star. Check out this fr.ee video training series about how you can get noticed and get known in your market.
Thanks P for the heads up on this cool interview.
