As it's coming up to the new year, and decade (!!) I knew everyone would be doing their yearly countdowns or lists, but I have decided to do something slightly different, and write my Best of 2009 in an awards sort of format, so here is my first award- Best New Artist.

There is-in my mind- absolutely no doubt who this award should rightfully go to: Lady Gaga. She has come from being an 4 year-old living in New York with a dream, to global stardom with a number-one album and songs to match. The Pop music industry has literally blow-up around her, and everyone- including my Grandma- knows who she is! The saying 'Any press is good press' comes to mind when I think of the whole 'Hermaphrodite Scandal' earlier on in the year, and I wonder if this was just to keep the public interested.
Her music is widely, critically-acclaimed, and has changed the way we think of pop-electro music forever. Lady Gaga also made a maturer step with her darker, and more genuine album: The Fame Monster (review here). She is certainly not scared to take risks and speak her mind- a problem that holds many aspiring artists back. A lot of people say Lady Gaga was just in the right place at the right time, but do you really think that we would of been without her talent for too long?
The Fame
Best: Just Dance, Love Game, Paparazzi, I Like It Rough, Starstruck, The Fame, Money Honey.
Worst: Summerboy, Disco Heaven, Brown Eyes.
The Fame Monster
Best: Bad Romance, Alejandro, Speechless, Dance In The Dark, Telephone.
Worst: So Happy I Could Die.
Love her or Loathe her Lady Gaga is undeniably the thing to look out for most next year, and I don't think she will be leaving us anytime soon.
