Lady Gaga Concert: The Night That Changed My Life
I know it’s probably weird to hear someone say a concert changed their life, but for me, that’s exactly what happened. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a diehard Lady Gaga fanatic. On September 16, 2010, I went to see Lady Gaga live in concert at the XL Center (formerly known as the Civic Center) in Hartford.

Her concert was so big and phenomenal that it was sold out, there was standing room only, there were cameras there, so it was put on the news and there was an article about it on the FIRST page of the Hartford Courant! Here is some kind of different Q & A from an interview she had with DJ Ron Slomowicz: DJ Ron Slomowicz: Listening to your music, I don't want to do a traditional Q&A interview. I'm going to say a bunch of names and you tell me what impact they've had on your life. Let's start with the Pussycat Dolls. Lady Gaga: Well you know, I love a girl in her underwear, first of all. Secondly, I've been writing for them, so Nicole Scherzinger has been in my head for probably the past three months. There's something that's very humbling about being able to write for a powerhouse group like that. Probably the biggest influence that they've had on me is making me want to be a better writer for them. RS: That's...
