"[Gaga Stigmata has] very modern, edgy photography to free flowing, urban narratives without censure to analytical essays, et cetera—like Gaga, imagination without ... limits. And the beauty is that anyone can submit work to the site, so artists and writers from all over the [world] have joined this experiment." -The Declaration.org

"Since March 2010, [Gaga Stigmata] has churned out the most intense ongoing critical conversation on [Lady Gaga]."

Performance Art: What Would Lady Gaga Do?
By Ama Birch

Smoking hot.
Not your mama.

(The reader signals to the audience to stand up, and they all do the robot dance together.)

Call, call, call
When I am alone
Mall, mall, mall

Baby, baby
Born this way
Maybe, Maybe
Dada gay.

Glitter lands.
Diamond encrusted hands.
