"Lady Gaga" is used in the sense of an adjective, so that the root "monster" gets the main emphasis and defines a Lady Gaga monster as a monster rather than an object directly associated with Lady Gaga. "Monster" is used in metaphorical sense in order to describe the fanatic attitude of the author toward Lady Gaga, which parallels the attitude of a monster toward its prey.
