About Lady Starlight
Lady Starlight, aka Colleen Martin, is not Lady Gaga (aka Stefani Germanotta). Yet it's not surprising that one is synonymous with the other, given that Starlight has toured three times and is best known for her numerous collaborations with the pop superstar.
It is Lady Starlight who is credited for helping Gaga in making the elaborate onstage costumes for which she is known. In fact, the two hosted a weekly party they called the "New York Street Revival and Trash Dance," in which they performed songs from the 1970s and 80s. The stage displays included both artists lighting hairspray cans on fire and go-go dancing to the beat. They also later performed as Lady Gaga and the Starlight Revue, and on stage at the 2007 Lollapalooza music festival.
Martin, who gives herself credit for creating the persona that is Lady Gaga, is happy that Germanotta is quick to also shower her with compliments. Yet today, Lady Starlight is happy making her own way as a fashion-stylist, makeup artist, writer, performance artist and DJ while remaining Gaga's off-stage best friend.
Make no mistake, Lady Starlight loves the rock'n roll and party nightlife. She's been previously nominated for Best Go Go Dancer and Burlesque Performer" and voted Best Female Hard Rock DJ by The L Magazine. She was recently on hand as Lady Gaga got FAU students all worked up during the opening night of her 2014 "artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball" world tour at the BB&T Center. Starlight opened the show by mixing beats in an hour-long set, but once again yielded to Gaga as the metallic curtain came up to reveal all her 'little monsters.'
