Lady Gaga's Birthday
The goddess of pop culture celebrates her birthday today! Not afraid to be the person who she is, Lady Gaga is truly different from the rest of the lot. She has her own unique sense of fashion, and has an extremely brilliant voice. Here is a little gist about her.
You’d be shocked to know that her real name is not Lady Gaga, but is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. She is an American recording artist, activist, record producer, businesswoman, fashion designer, philanthropist, and actress. She was born and raised in New York City.
Gaga primarily studied at the Convent of the Sacred Heart and briefly attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts before withdrawing to focus on her musical career. She soon began performing in the rock music scene of Manhattan's Lower East Side. By the end of 2007, record executive and producer Vincent Herbert signed her to his label Streamline Records, an imprint of Interscope Records. Initially working as a songwriter at Interscope Records, her vocal abilities captured the attention of recording artist Akon, who also signed her to Kon Live Distribution, his own label under Interscope.
Gaga rose to prominence with her August 2008 debut album, The Fame, which was a critical and commercial success. The record included the international number-one tracks "Just Dance" and "Poker Face". In November 2009, her extended play, The Fame Monster, was released to a similar reception, and produced the hit singles "Bad Romance", "Telephone", and "Alejandro". Its accompanying Monster Ball Tour became one of the highest-grossing concert tours of all time. Gaga's second album, Born This Way, was released in May 2011 and topped albums charts in most major markets. It generated chart-topping songs "Born This Way", "Judas", and "The Edge of Glory". After taking a sabbatical for a hip injury and the cancellation of the remaining dates of the Born This Way Ball Tour, Gaga's third album Artpop was released in November 2013 and became her second number one album in US. Art pop was preceded by singles "Applause" and "Do What U Want".
She is highly influenced by David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Cher, and Queen. Gaga is recognized for her flamboyant, diverse, and outré contributions to the music industry through her fashion, performances, and music videos.
