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. I want to invite you all to the party. I want people to feel a part of this lifestyle. Musically, the album drew influences from late s glam rock musicians such as David Bowie and Queen. Gaga incorporated their glam-rock sound while devising catchy pop melodies and hooks to create what she has dubbed, "theatrical pop".
Songs like " Poker Face ", " Just Dance " and " LoveGame " are uptempo dance songs, with "Poker Face" carrying a dark sound with clear vocals on the chorus and a pop hook. The song has an eighties synth pop feeling in it while incorporating the "Eh, Eh" hook from Rihanna's single "Umbrella" Lyrically, the songs on The Fame talk about being famous and achieving popularity.
Gaga explained in an interview with the Daily Star that the lyrics carry a bit of an undertone of confusion about love and sex. The lyrics also portray the desire of capturing the attention of the camera as well as achieving fame.
To promote the album, Gaga did several performances worldwide. She performed in Vietnam for the 57th Miss Universe beauty pageant during the swimsuit competition. It was initially announced as Gaga's second single, but " Poker Face " was chosen instead. There were two videos released for the song — the first was composed of clips from Dirty Sexy Money , and the second was the actual music video.
The song charted on the UK Singles Chart due to digital downloads and peaked at number eighty-three. The album received further promotion from her first headlining concert tour The Fame Ball Tour , which started on March 12 , in San Diego, California. It was Gaga's first concert tour with North American shows in March, followed by dates in Oceania and a solo trek through Europe.
Dates in Asia soon followed, as well as two performances at England's V Festival and two shows in North America that had been postponed from April. Gaga described the tour as a traveling museum show incorporating artist Andy Warhol's pop-performance art concept. Tickets were distributed for charity also. Alternate versions of the show with minimal variations were planned by Gaga to accommodate different venues.
The show consisted of four segments, with each segment being followed by a video interlude to the next segment, and it ended with an encore. The set list consisted of songs from The Fame only. Electronic Folk International.
