Lady Gaga’s favourite Christmas present: The Portastudio series, first released in 1979

The ever enigmatic, multi-faceted Lady Gaga, whose talents extend from music and performance to ground-breaking fashion said, in answer to the question ‘What’s the best Christmas present you’ve ever had?’, in an interview in December 2009 on the Ellen Show, “My Father bought me a 4-track TASCAM recorder when I was about 11 years old, and it was this really, really simple mechanism, that I could just sit at the piano and hook up a mic and record by myself, that’s probably the best gift that my Dad ever gave me”.

What’s the best present you have ever received?

We hope you are having a great Christmas day wherever you are in the world and we wish you very Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year!
