As part of Billboard‘s Fan Army Face-Off 2015, we’ve asked people to write about what being part of the fandom means to them. Read below for an essay from a Lady Gaga fan, who are called the Little Monsters.
Little Monsters are more than a fandom, we are a family. We have been supporting Lady Gaga since the very first day, we grew up together, and share so much passion and love. Little Monsters care for each other, we have a very special bond and we always try to be brave and stand for ourselves. Our creativity has driven us to some amazing feats, plus, we have become well known for the outfits we wear at Gaga’s concerts! Our bond is beyond just loving the same star. Our bond is based on the philosophy we share. We all believe in the importance of love, compassion and tolerance. We are genuinely trying to make the world a better place.
Lady Gaga has taught us that we should embrace our differences, and that’s what we do. Our fandom is so strong and diverse, but despite being so diverse we all share the same core, we all love Lady Gaga. We have been though a lot but we are still undoubtedly one of the strongest and most amazing fandoms in the world. We are definitely one of a kind!
