Rumor has it that Lady Gaga will be one of the headlining acts of Lollapalooza 2010. The lineup for the festival is traditionally announced in the spring, but every year it seems to leak earlier than it's official release date. Last year's headliners were released in early March by Chicago Tribune's Greg Kot, and the entire lineup was prematurely released by Chicago Sun Times' Jim DeRogatis.

Although the lineup is supposed to be released in April, do the early leaks have a positive or negative impact on the festival? Some might say it spoils the surprise, but it could feed the anticipation. With big names like Lady Gaga being thrown around, one can only hold their breath so long to see who else will be making an appearance.

If you remember back in 2007, on a side-stage with a daylight performance, Lady Gaga (at the time less known) performed in a disco bikini and thigh-high hosiery. This year she is said to be performing her new, arena-sized version of Monster Ball, her latest tour for her new album Fame Monster.

Other names rumored for Lollapalooza 2010 are Arcade Fire, Green Day, The Strokes, Phoenix, and reunited Soundgarden.
