Lady Gaga’s choreographer is a star herself

HollywoodNews.com: The Lady Gaga phenomenon has been going on for a few years. Now her choreographer and creative director, Laurieann Gibson, is having a phenomenal time of her own. Gibson is an Emmy nominee for directing the HBO special “Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden.” She’s up for Teen Choice Awards as Choice Female Reality/Variety Star for her E! show, “The Dance Scene.” Her choreography is nominated for an MTV Music Video Award for her work on Lady Gaga’s “Judas.” And that’s just her awards calendar.

Tonight (8/2), her second reality show premieres: BET’s “Born to Dance” — a competition series in which Laurieann will guide and develop up and coming dancers as they vie to stay on the show. “I wanted to give my artists not just a trophy, but the information they’ll need to traverse the politics in the industry, to inject what I have found out along the way. It’s not about me making money as a producer or jumping onto the idea dance is hot,” she says. “It’s a real look at what really takes to make it as a dancer, and it’s a real opportunity.”

Indeed, the former “Making the Band” personality has already hired some of her “Born to Dance” contestants for other jobs.

Despite her myriad other creative enterprises, Gibson says her work with Lady Gaga continues to be at the forefront. “I just finished directing her ‘You and I’ video; I’m editing that now,” she says. (We knew that. Their fellow collaborator, fashion director and editor Nicola Formichetti’s Twitter photos of paparazzi literally parachuting down trying to snap shots of Lady Gaga on the video location have been all over the internet). ”We have the VMAs coming up, a new tour….”

    She’s a 2 face hypocrite RIPOFF con artist like the copy and paste con artist she repsents!
    She admitted to ripping off Madonna in that interview she gave a few months back and said Madonna should be bitter and that she wanted to let kids know they can. (CAN WHAT RIPOFF PEOPLE AND GET AWAY WITH IT? ) and thats what she and gaga represent and this movement represents
    then she calls Katy Perry out on twitter recently when Katy posed in a mermaid outfit saying Katy stole gagas act? When afew days later it was reviled her gaga stole the mermaid act from Beth Midler and didnt give her any credit and said she didnt reliazed it was done b4? No wonder then that most of her act seems to have been done b4 what a con artist!

    its funny how besides everything she steal from madonna and it was bought to attention recently how she and gaga stole the mermaid in wheelchair act from Bette midler and didn’t give her any credit but u have her troll delusional Stan’s at it again trying to make excuses and say this was a homage when gaga later said she had no idea of bette doing the exact same act for years??

    seems like every time shes copied and ripoff Madonna or anyone they try to say this bull after the fact! after people realize it was done somewhere b4..and realized it looks or sounds very similar to something they heard or seen b4 like all her songs?videos.outfits…

    if this was freaking homage like her trolls tried to say again automatically..then why not give credit where credit was do like after or before the performance or whenever she copies and paste her career from Madonna why not give credit in the song notes instead of her saying bull like that’s RETARDED TO SAY SHE COPIED MADONNA?? or have her people defend her like creative director Laurieann Gibson calling Katy a thief when gaga is the biggest thief of all? Laurieann Gibson admitted to ripping off Madonna and said (((she should be bitter because I did it on purpose, and you can quote me. I did it on purpose because for all those kids who believe that you can’t, I wanted to let them feel that you can. And that’s what I represent, that’s what Gags represents. That’s what this movement represents))

    but this same woman was fast to lash out on twitter at Katy perry for talking a picture dress as a mermaid?? hypocrite! she doesn’t like it when the shoes on the other foot it seems like?
