Lady Gaga’s latest album titled, “Joanne” has been the turning point in Gaga’s career. Typically, when you think of Lady Gaga you think of meat dresses, massive heels, and outstandingly complex performances on and off of the stage. Given that her previous album, “Artpop”, is filled with creative ideals, wild costumes, and vulgar lyrics. This left many of her fans a bit confused as to what the, “Joanne” album is all about and why it is so relaxed compared to her previous creations. Gaga’s latest album is a tribute album to her laid Aunt Joanne. The death of her Aunt was a sudden tragedy at twelve years of age when she passed from Lupus. Although, many people don’t realize it, her Aunt Joanne’s legacy has had a strong impact on her entire career. For example, Gaga introduced one of Joanne’s poems in the booklet of the album, “The Fame” (Redfearn, Oct. 16, 2017).

Therefore, this album's success is not owned by Gaga but is simply a gift from Gaga to Joanne. The influence of Joannes death has left an impact on Gaga personally, professionally, and musically. Her new vicarious life is one of honesty and pureness which is expressed throughout her album. One of the lyrics in her song,”Joanne” states, “ I’ll still love you even if I can’t, see you anymore, can’t wait to see you soar.” (Gaga, 2016). This expresses that Gaga is living both of her own and her laid Aunt Joannes dreams as well. this album is a direct expression of motivation, artistry and personal growth which therefore, transcended into a successful and genius album.
