Lady Gaga – A Preview

Lady Gaga, born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on March 28, 1986 is an American composer, singer, actress, dancer and fashion designer.  She belongs to an Italian American family. Her father is a web entrepreneur and her mother was a telecommunications executive. Lady Gaga attended a Roman Catholic school located on the upper side of Manhattan since eleven years old until she turned seventeen, when she got into the distinguished Tisch school of Arts at the New York University. She was particularly hooked in to acting and took an active part in cultural and entertainment programs that involved singing and music. Friends and acquaintances from her college days describe her as being an honest student with a great liking for singing. She is left-handed and a natural brunette – she bleached her hair blonde to flee speculations on her similarity to Amy Winehouse.

 Stage Name

Her stage name, Lady Gaga was given to her by music producer Rob Fusari, young Stefani was terribly fond of Radio Gaga song by Queen, Rob used to sing this song as a way to greet her whenever she entered the studio. There was this time when Rob was texting Stefani, he

typed the words “Radio Gaga” on his mobile phone and the device ran an auto correct, changing “radio” into “lady”.  Hence Stefani Germanotta became known as Lady Gaga!

The Rise to Fame

Lady Gaga signed to Def Jam Records at the age of 19 but it ended quickly.  She then began performing rock music in New York City’s Lower East Side. In 2007, she signed another deal with Vince Herbert of Streamline Records after she met Lady Starlight at a performance at Lollapalooza Festival. She also became

a trainee as a songwriter at the Famous Music Publishing and when it was attained by Sony/ATV Music she was then hired to write songs for the Pussycat Dolls, New Kids on the Block, Fergie and Britney Spears.

During her days at Interscope, which she signed with shortly after she graduated from the Tisch School of the Arts, she was discovered by Akon, who hired her for his record label – the Kon Live Distribution. Lady Gaga has a contralto vocal range, which is the reason behind her signature deep singing voice and powerful performances. In 2008, her debut album, Fame, was an amazing success and received enthusiastic reviews from critics all around the world. Her songs made it to the top on various international charts and sold more than 12 million copies around the world. The deluxe edition of the Fame was released in November 2009.

Many singles from these albums became blockbuster hits and broke all previous records in just a short time.  Among these are her hit singles Bad Romance, Telephone and Alejandro. The Edge of Glory and latest hit Applause from her Artpop Album also made it to the top.
