She's not Christina Aguilera, but she has risen from little-known dance act to one of today's major international music superstars. Such is the life of Lady Gaga.

There's no disputing her sales. But how do you know she's really made it? Because she was invited to perform at Sting's annual Rainforest Fund benefit show.

On Thursday night, Gaga was on-hand for the star-studded show at New York's Carnegie Hall, which also featured performances by a roster of music greats.

Elton John, host Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Mary J. Blige, Blondie's Debbie Harry and many others were there - the first two performing with Lady G herself.

She has her detractors, but Gaga brings her A-game to every concert. Follow the jump for a second video of the rumored hermaphrodite rocking with Sting.

Lady Gaga is not to be outdone.

Amid chatter about whether she copied Christina Aguilera or vice versa, the pop star opted for a stripped-down streamlined look in Stockholm, Sweden.

As Lady Gaga fashion goes, this is one of our favorite looks.

Not only do we love the coat, it looks like she's fleeing her hotel after the fire alarm went off and simply forgot / didn't have time to get dressed ...

Just a typical day in the life of Lady Gaga.

The rumored hermaphrodite was actually headed to the studio here, not to do a live show. Hey, sometimes you've gotta go all-out while you record as well.

Having been away from the business for years, raising her son, Christina Aguilera came back in a major way last week.

She released the video for "Not Myself Tonight," which stirred up controversy over whether it was too sexy and provocative. In other words: it accomplished the exact goal Aguilera had in mind and put her right back on the musical map.

But another controversy has broken out about the single: is it a copycat? Critics allege that Christina has simply stolen her new style and edginess from Lady Gaga in a clear attempt to piggyback off that eccentric singer's success.

To that charge, one Christina fan in particular has a Clueless-like response: AS IF!

In the following video, an Aguilera supporter (with a lot of time on her hands) aims to prove that it's actually the other way around: Gaga has taken her cue from Xtina. Watch and decide for yourself:

Lady Gaga is likely too pissed at Fox to care much about this feud, but you can sound off below. Which artist is the most original?

Whose side are you on?

When it comes to her reaction to Fox's broadcast of her American Idol performance Wednesday, Lady Gaga isn't bothering putting on the p-p-p-p-p-poker face.

She's just straight up annoyed.

The scene-stealing diva lashed out at Fox via Twitter, accusing the network of some shoddy editing work when it came to her much-heralded American Idol visit.

"FOX POORLY+AMATEURLY edited+cut my performance/musical arrangement on idol. Watch real version," she wrote, prompting fans to go elsewhere for it.

Do not edit the Gaga.

The complete, more than six-minute version of Gaga doing "Alejandro," which was cut down to under five by American Idol, can be seen here, thanks to Perez.

On one hand, five whole minutes of a pretaped performance left intact is still a lengthy segment for live TV. On the other hand, the results show is all filler.

Why have Gaga and her non-amputated leg on if you're not going to air it in its full, awesome entirety? What pulse-pounding drama couldn't be cut instead?

American Idol narrowed its field of finalists to four last night by eliminating Aaron Kelly. But the highlight of the night was a performance by Ms. Lady Gaga.

Ratings are way down this season, but that can't be blamed on the show's roster of results night guest performers, which has been consistently impressive.

GaGa's pre-taped performance, which has been widely anticipated, ran over six minutes in length, but due to time constraints, was cut down to under five.

Time constraints. On an all-filler show!

Still, it's definitely worth watching. Here's Lady Gaga doing her newest hit, "Alejandro," and her staple "Bad Romance" last night on American Idol ...

Typically great, no? No one will ever accuse her of phoning in a concert, even if it's just two songs. These things are almost like performance art pieces.

Whether it's Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors or amputated leg rumors (she supposedly had it done for fun), she's always at the center of controversy.

She's also a powerhouse performer, week in and week out.

All eyes were on red carpet fashion outside of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday night, but inside the Costume Institute Gala, it was all Lady Gaga.

The rumored hermaphrodite and amuptee stole the show in a sheer Armani crystal catsuit, performed four songs in front of a New York City-themed backdrop.

Pants Nowhere to Be Seen

Cash Warren, there with wife Jessica Alba raved about her performance. “Jess and I are front row center. Insane! She’s amazing,” Warren Tweeted, adding:

“Haven’t heard a voice that wonderful in person in a long time.”

Hi praise. Katy Perry said “I love @ladygaga She’s still cool” and from the slightly older set, Brooke Shields Tweeted: “I love whenever I can see Lady Gaga.”

Britney Spears recorded "Telephone" before Lady Gaga ... according to sketchy reports and a "leaked" demo purported to be Spears' original recording of it.

According to Gawker, Lady Gaga wrote the tune for Britney, who passed on it for her Circus album. Ol' Peg Leg took it back for herself, and it became a hit.

Perez Hilton is convinced that it's Britney doing Gaga's "Telephone." Spears' longest-running fan site, World of Britney, denies the vocals are by its namesake.

"There was almost no Auto Tune in the actual song," the site said. "It was raw vocals and that isn't the song. Those of you with ears can hear its [sic] not B."

Um, okay ... because Britney Spears is all about raw vocal ability and never uses Auto Tune or any sort of overdubs or enhancements whatsoever ... no way.

Take a listen to this "Telephone" version and comment below:

Is the story true? Is the recording even her? Is it any good? Is it an attempt to siphon Gaga's fame (like her manager's campaign for a Britney Glee episode)?

You tell us. What do you think of "Britney's" version?

It was a quality celebrity rumor: Lady Gaga had a leg amputated below the knee just 'cause she thought it'd be cool and "different." Sadly, it's not true.

Well, fortunately is more like it.

Totally Gaga

Despite reports that this is "accurate and based on facts," and she dropped the bombshell "whilst hopping around the studio," don't believe the hype.

The Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumor, however? That we leave to you to draw conclusions on. The pics are more conclusive than her "peg leg" ones.

Hilariously, the Fame singer's record-label rep was actually asked him to confirm, deny or clear up the leg amputation rumor, and finally replied Saturday:

"It's not true," the rep said.

Lady Gaga: Two legs to stand on. This rumor: Zero.

It's surprising it even made this far and a rep addressed it. No "Exclusive: Lady Gaga Amputates Leg" headlines on any reputable site was one clue.

As was the lack of any doctored Lady Gaga pictures looking even remotely real. Besides, when would the alleged operation have even happened?

Lady Gaga is a touring machine, most recently taping a performance for American Idol. The girl hops around, but only figuratively.

Not to mention the logistical and ethical impossibility of a doctor doing this: "I do not know any country or any location where this has happened, or would be considered legally or ethically correct," sums up one plastic surgeon.

Finally, a suggestion for rumor-starters: Next time, say if it's the left or right leg and throw in more medical "details." Makes it more convincing ... and funny.

As for how this got started, Lady Gaga's amputated leg is the work of Britain's Daily Squib, which posted a peg-leg photo and an article about Gaga's "new look."

The April 24 piece was meant as a satire, but peeps actually ran with it. Nice work!

There are so many rumors surrounding Lady Gaga, it's hard to take any of them seriously ... although she's so out there, sometimes it makes you wonder.

Lest we forget the Lady Gaga hermaphrodite story last summer. Talk about serious legs. In fact, there are still people convinced this urban myth is legit.

Gaga: Born This Way

Still, the rumor going around that the singer had a leg amputated below the knee, apparently because she wanted to look different, seems far fetched.

Until she confirms it in a sit-down with Barbara Walters, we're going to put it in the false category. Although whoever started it gets props for creativity.

"I just had this much leg amputated ..."

As the rumor goes, Gaga had a cosmetic amputation surgery and before long, she will personally make the announcement to fans ... or unveil it in avideo.

Depends which version of the rumor you read, we suppose.

While Lady Gaga's fashion sense is as wild as it gets, and we can see some amputation-themed live performance of some kind, this has gotta be a hoax.

Being different is one thing. Hacking off a limb is quite another. Who would want that? And what kind of doctor, save Conrad Murray, would agree to do it?

Time Magazine has come out with its annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people.

It's divided into four categories (Leaders, Heroes, Thinkers and Artists), although we have no idea how Sarah Palin ended up in the number-nine slot as a "Leader." What does she lead, exactly? Whatever organization pays her the most money to speak at its event?

But anyway.

Lady GaGa is considered the most influential artist on the planet, with Conan O'Brien ranking second. Also in the top 10: Oprah, Taylor Swift and Robert Pattinson.

So Very Influential
Prince Pic

The magazine spoke to a number of people closely associated to these celebrities and received the following takes on them:

Cyndi Lauper on Lady GaGa: Lady Gaga's art captures the period we're in right now. She isn't a pop act, she is a performance artist. She herself is the art. She is the sculpture.

George Lopez on Conan O'Brien: Conan's tenacity and wit have been an inspiration to me on my own late-night show. I'm happy and proud that we'll be playing on the same team when he comes to basic cable.

Chris Weitz on Robert Pattinson: Rob is a reserved, bookish sort of specimen, a guy who'd rather spend the night at the corner table in the pub with friends — a bit of a weirdo, frankly, in the best sense.

For the complete list of influential artists, see below.
