Lady Gaga is taking her act to HBO.
The quirky costume-lovin’ pop star, who scooped three prizes for her Fame Monster disc at Sunday’s 2011 Grammy Awards, has teamed up with the cable network in a deal that will see the station televise her upcoming homecoming concerts in New York. The “Love Game” star’s Monster Ball Tour stop at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Feb. 21 and Feb. 22 will be taped for an HBO special this spring. Celebrity choreographer Laurieann Gibson, largely responsible for directing many of Gaga’s chatworthy music videos, will direct the concert event.
“Lady Gaga is the single most exciting music talent on the scene today. We’re especially thrilled that she’ll be creating unique new elements for the special that will make the show an even more memorable experience for our viewers,” HBO Entertainment’s Sue Naegle said Tuesday.
Lady Gaga Presents: The Monster Ball Tour airs May 7 on HBO. The singer’s hotly-awaited release, Born This Way, is set to debut just two weeks later.
