Lady Gaga Kicks Off Tour at BB&T with Something to Prove

Almost three years ago exactly, Lady Gaga performed back-to-back South Florida dates celebrating her immensely popular Fame Monster EP. Gaga seemed within reach of Madonna's Queen of Pop crown.

It was hard to argue the contrary. Hits like "Poker Face" and "Bad Romance" dominated the radio, while her wildly creative visuals brought glamour back to the music video format -- which died the day MTV decided it was preferable to give pregnant teens a reality show. She crisscrossed the globe reintroducing the spectacle back into pop music with her three-year Monster Ball Tour.
