The Fame Monster

Gaga is including locks of hair from her wigs in the deluxe reissue of 2008's The Fame. It's the Warhol-y thing to do. But she covers her conceptual bets by rolling out sturdy club-thumpers, and this eight-song EP (included in the reissue and sold separately) is largely on point. "Bad Romance" makes her name a Teutonic chant; "Alejandro" is a loving Abba spoof. Half the disc is Madonna knock-offs, but that's part of the concept — fame monsters needn't concern themselves with originality.
