The Lady Gaga Method: Gaining attention by shocking those who aren’t paying attention.
Whether that attention is for personal gain or to build a platform for another larger issue, it is basically the same methodology. Doing something outlandish, heart-stopping, or laughable in order to get people to look at you.
Often people use this in order to build fame for fame’s sake. Attention for attention’s sake. And occasionally, people will end up using that popularity to accomplish something larger than themselves.
Barely anyone knew Lady Gaga’s name before she began shocking the system with her seemingly random, larger-than-life outfits and performances.
The problem with this method is that at some point people will stop paying attention to you… and to what you have to say. That is, if you are trying to say anything at all.
