One last dream gig - and Gaga's gone

'I'm going to miss you so much Hong Kong!' So said Lady Gaga as she concluded her week-long love-in with the city at the last of her four gigs at AsiaWorld-Arena last night.

She does it her way

You would have to have been sealed in the Hulk-proof cell to have missed the fact Hong Kong is suffering from a serious case of Lady Gaga fever. The pop diva is in the middle of a four-show gig as part of her Born This Way Ball Tour, with the last show tomorrow night.

Paws for thought

Unless you've been on a yoga retreat on Easter Island, you'll have heard that Her Fabulousness, Lady Gaga, is in town, putting on the glitz for her Hong Kong fans in an incredible four shows (she was originally scheduled to perform just once, but tickets sold so quickly, they had to keep adding dates!).

Gaga's Little Monsters make an early pit-stop

It was if Halloween had come early to the AsiaWorld-Arena yesterday as Lady Gaga fans donned platinum wigs, black leather vests, sky-high stilettos and fake blood to celebrate the singer's Hong Kong debut.

Mother monster Rules in this house

The gates to a medieval castle open and in comes a majestic queen riding a silver unicorn.

Juxtaposing the archaic castle is a ghostly hologram of Lady Gaga's face floating high above - welcoming you to a world where anything goes, where Mother Monster herself can pop out of a gigantic womb or be pressed into a meat grinder.

Six degrees

Lady Gaga is coming to Hong Kong! Her of the meat-frock shock is scheduled to show her poker face at AsiaWorld-Expo on May 2. The 25-year-old (below) owes much of her success to her fan base of gay men, for whom she has become a formidable advocate.

EGG EMBRYO (2011)

A star was reborn at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles when Lady Gaga sang Born This Way from inside an egg, complete with a cast of yellow-dressed dancers. Earlier in the day she graced the red carpet in the egg, carried by four half-naked attendants.

Going Gaga

Pop music barely causes a ripple in my life, so it is not surprising that the death of British singer Amy Winehouse has gone by little noticed. The staples of my relaxation are blues and jazz, while the hip-hop that blasts from my teenage son's room is, by order, kept behind closed doors. What I hear on the airwaves is sometimes catchy, mostly unremarkable.

Songs for Japan (CD)

Whether you're a Little Monster or a Belieber, rejoice! Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber have appeared on the same album for the first time. Songs for Japan is a charity compilation for earthquake- and tsunami-ravaged Japan.

Born This Way Lady Gaga (CD)

Debuting atop the Billboard 200, Lady Gaga's second studio album Born This Way is a masterpiece in electropop. Now a household name, Gaga goes back to her roots, creating the sledgehammer pop that led to her fame. Typically, the album is laced with religious and cultural themes, and a little controversy.

Loud Rihanna (CD)

Rihanna is officially over Chris Brown. At least, that's what appears to be the case if her latest album, her fifth in as many years, is anything to go by.

Following the heavy, dark mire of Rated R, the album produced after her attack, Loud is like a summer garden party: upbeat, full of dance-friendly music, major chords and guest appearances.

Following the heavy, dark mire of Rated R, the album produced after her attack, Loud is like a summer garden party: flirty, upbeat, full of dance-friendly music, major chords and guest appearances.
