It was not too long ago a young woman by the name of Stefani Germanotta was just a talented pianist and aspiring singer waiting to get discovered. That young girl quickly invaded the radios and televisions of the world under the name Lady Gaga.
Germanotta, hereby known as Lady Gaga, was born March 28, 1986. She was already playing the piano by age four and used that skill as a teenager to play through New York's open mic nights at age 14. She would never slow down as music quickly became her number one priority. She dropped out of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts to further her music career.
She was first discovered by Def Jam Recordings when a CEO heard her singing from down the hall. Her first bump in her career came quickly as just three months later the recording label dropped her without an explanation. She was introduced to songwriter and producer RedOne and started a new career producing songs with him.
The most rumored story of how she adopted the name Lady Gaga was when Rob Fusari, a music producer who assisted in some of her songwriting, attempted to text her Radio Ga Ga after the Queen song. However, due to an auto-correction application in his phone, the text message read Lady Ga Ga and thus her stage name was born.
To get help with her stage image, she began to collaborate with another artist, Lady Starlight. Together they created a burlesque rock show which eventually got the pair invited to play at the Lollapalooza music festival in 2007. Using inspiration from glam rockers David Bowie and Queen, she found a niche for her music when combined the vintage sound with modern pop melodies and an electronic dance music.
