|Abstract:||This essay investigates the employment of disability by the pop star Lady Gaga. Working through different illustrations of disability in her videos it is argued that Lady Gaga ushers in a new aesthetic and political platform on which disability can be redefined. In particular, the author argues that Lady Gaga unconsciously performs within the space of what Siebers has named a disability aesthetic in which the different bodies reformulate the expectations and desires of the art object. The context of popular culture is explained as a necessary component of this reframing.|
