Team Love Child LLC is a company composed of Lady Gaga, Rob Fusari, and Joe Germanotta. Instead of a production deal, they decided to create a domestic limited liability company (Filing number: 0600269927) on May 8, 2006.


The name came from Gaga's description of herself being the hypothetical lovechild of David Bowie and Jerry Lee Lewis. Many of the songs were put on either Gaga's MySpace or PureVolume page for a couple of months at a time. Five of the songs written are available on The Fame, and the song, "Vanity", was sold exclusively by Rhapsody, and given to those who bought Monster Ball Tour tickets for the 2011 shows. Some of them, were written for other artists like Lelia Broussard and Lina Morgana. In May of 2007, Gaga signed a 5 album recording contract and 360° deal with Interscope Records. At the same time, they acquired 29 songs made by Team Love Child.

The songs they did together are registered on a music publishing database (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers - ASCAP). The company protects its members' musical copyrights by monitoring public performances of their music, whether via a broadcast or live performance, and compensating them accordingly. Fusari is a member and thus, some of his songs with Gaga are on the database. Gaga is a member of Broadcast Music, Inc - BMI and her songs are registered on that database from her works with Fusari.

"Sexy Ugly" was used in an offer with a promo alongside "Beautiful, Dirty, Rich". Although unreleased, a short part of "Fooled Me Again" was played on The Fame: Part One mini-film, along with two live performances in 2009. In 2010, Gaga performed "Glitter and Grease" as apart of The Monster Ball Tour set-list.
