Lady Gaga and her dancers
Lady Gaga has ended her working relationship with her choreographer and creative director Lauriann Gibson- the lady responsible for 13 of Gaga’s hotest video clips, from Gaga giving birth to herself in the Nick Knight directed Born This Way, to the Versace-heavy Judas, right back to including Poker Face, Just Dance, Telephone, and Alejandro. She has also worked closely with the singer on her live performances and spectacular stage shows. Aawww! Lauriann has said that she loves the fact that Gaga is permanently in character, including on the red carpet – like on The Day of The Egg, or the night where she appeared as her male alter-ego, Joe Calderone ‘The idea of her being a performance artist — and it's starting the performance on the red carpet and the idea that the performance never ends for her — is the first time I've experienced this with an artist,’ Lauriann explained at the time. ‘I love it. That's something that is specific to her, and the whole night was the performance, and it was important that Jo was a part of the whole night.’
Did Lauriann Gibson invent Gaga's infamous 'CLAW POSE' ? ? ?
What could have caused the rift? Reports that the fact that Lauriann’s own career was on the up in such a big way had led to ego clashes with her purple-haired employer. Working closely with Gaga obviously give you an extra credibility in your own right, and leads to lots of opportunities, which Lauriann has exploited well. If you think that Nicola Formichetti’s phone started ringing off the hook a bit more since he was named as a key part of the Haus of Gaga, just listen to what Lauriann does on the side; over the past 12 months, she has been starring in not one, but two, of her own reality shows: E!'s The Dance Scene and BET’s Born to Dance.
Since the choreographer and dnacer started getting a taste for working in front of, rather than soley behind the camera, could this have meant that this town became not big enough for the both of them? Yikes!
