The writing of the album took around two years and a half and started in 2006.

The songs are mostly inspired by Gaga’s love of fame in general, and deals with the intricacies of a rich and famous lifestyle, visualized by her. Musically, the album drew inspiration from and while incorporating music and clear hooks. In regards to the title and concept of the album, Lady Gaga explained, “The Fame’’ is about how anyone can feel famous. Pop culture is art. It doesn’t make you cool to hate pop culture, so I embraced it and you hear it all over The Fame. But, it’s a sharable fame.
