Lady Gaga isn't just about music, and she isn't just about fashion. She's about the total image. She says on her Haus of Gaga Web site, "When I'm writing music, I'm thinking about the clothes I want to wear on stage. It's all about everything altogether -- performance art, pop performance art, fashion. For me, it's everything coming together and being a real story that will bring back the super-fan."

It isn't enough that she's built a music brand and a brand of uninhibited, avant-garde, risk-taking fashions. Now, Gaga wants to teach. She's applied for an adjunct professor position at Manhattan's prestigious Parson's School of Design. A college dropout herself, she'd like to teach fashion design students for a semester or two after her Monster Ball Tour ends.
