Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, better known by her stage name Lady Gaga, was born in New York City, USA, on March 28th, 1986. This superstar's popularity knows no bounds – Lady Gaga has an unbelievable 41 million followers on the social network, twitter!
Lady Gaga started her musical journey as a teenager, performing at rock gigs around Manhattan's Lower East Side. Her unique voice and songwriting ability were soon spotted by talent agencies. After signing to the record label, Interscope Records, in 2007, Lady Gaga's career started to take off in a big way. Her first album entitled 'The Fame' included several of her biggest hits including 'Pokerface' and 'Just Dance', and was popular with critics and the public. A couple of years later, Lady Gaga embarked on a tour named 'The Monster Ball Tour' which goes down as one of the biggest and fastest selling tours of all time. Certainly not a bad start to her career! Lady Gaga has often been commended by fellow musicians and critics for her impressive vocals and her ability to convey emotion through her voice.
Lady Gaga could definitely be described as one of pop's most flamboyant performers. From her eclectic dresses (one of which was made of meat!) to her wild dance routines, there is absolutely nothing dull about this girl. Her hairstyles are ever-changing, while her make-up is often packed with glitter and color.
It's fair to say that Lady Gaga's incredible career has been duly recognized; she has an unbelievable five Grammy Awards and 13 MTV Awards. Perfect for a star who has sold more than 125 million singles worldwide!
