It's been a while since a new pop artist has made her way in the music industry the old-fashioned/grass roots way by paying her dues with seedy club gigs and self-promotion. This is one rising pop star who hasn't been plucked from a model casting call, born into a famous family, won a reality TV singing contest, or emerged from a teen cable TV sitcom. "I did this the way you are supposed to.I played every club in New York City and I bombed in every club and then killed it in every club and I found myself as an artist. I learned how to survive as an artist, get real, and how to fail and then figure out who I was as singer and performer. And, I worked hard."



















At this Friday's Billboard 'Women in Music' event, Lady Gaga will be the recipient of this year's 'Rising Star' award. Since the release of her debut album 'The Fame', she has sold over a million copies and scored two #1 singles with "Just Dance" and "Poker Face".

"Lady Gaga is one of those rare examples of a truly unique artist with mass appeal," said Bill Werde, Billboard's Editorial Director. "She has established herself as one of today's top songwriters, and the whole world is waiting to see what her next outrageous but brilliant move or style will be. It is that ongoing anticipation, combined with her success that makes her a rising star." Lady GaGa will be honored along with Beyonce Knowles, who was named 'Woman of the Year'.

Also during a recent radio interview, Lady Gaga revealed plans to perform her new single during her upcoming SNL gig. She said, "I have a new single that I'm actually going to be performing on Saturday Night Live, [along] with "Paparazzi", and then I'm going to put out a kind of new body of work."
