Laurieann Gibson, who is the creative dance genuis behind star performers like Lady Gaga, Mary J. Blige, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj, made her television debut when she molded P. Diddy’s Danity Kane on MTV reality TV show Making The Band. Now she is looking forward to her very own E! docu-drama.
Step aside Kardashian sisters and Jonathan Cheban, Lauriann Gibson is teaming up with Ryan Seacrest for her own E! reality show, following the ins and outs of Interscope Records. Laurieann tells Usmagazine.com that E! fans can expect to see behind the scene journies of famous stars like Lady Gaga and how the roles of “creative director, choreographer, artist development, and arts development” interplay.
Laurieann tells Us how fantastic Lady Gaga is and that when she first got Gaga’s label there was “no limitation” and just freedom to form what is seen today on stage, in music videos and on the radio.
In response to the difficulty Laurieann encountered while working with Lady Gaga who was never a trained dancer, she says, “the thing that was great is her fearlessness. She did the work, and it was very difficult, but being number one is. When they say, ‘you are so tough,’ I’m like, ‘well that’s why she’s number one!’” Laurieann goes on to say that any claims made of Lady Gaga having an eating disorder are false, a great moment was when the pair once danced together on a table in Germany to Bad Romance, and the claw dance move made popular by the Bad Romance video was inspired by classic dance moves like “the twist.”
The famed choreographer on Nicki Minaj:
She’s like, ‘I don’t want to be cute!’ She’s like a Barbie, then she wants to be a superhero, or coming out of a spaceship and everything’s pink. She makes a certain move that’s ghetto hood mixed with a little robot so its like I’m evolving Nicki Manaj and developing her style. She’s fearless, and I love her.
Laurieann on Chris Brown who she’d love to work with in the future:
He is the closest thing that I’ve seen to what we loved about Michael Jackson. If there is a synch between music and singer, that magic, he’s there. But I think at this point he’s still so young and hasn’t gotten the right guidance.
