Biography

Lady Gaga (b. Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, 28 March 1986, New York, N.Y.) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress.

Gaga began performing as a teenager, singing at open mic nights and acting in school plays. She studied at Collaborative Arts Project 21, through the New York University Tisch School of the Arts, before dropping out to pursue a career in music.

After Def Jam Recordings canceled her contract, she worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing, where she signed a joint deal with Interscope Records and KonLive Distribution, in 2007. Gaga had her breakthrough the following year with her debut studio album, The Fame and its chart-topping singles Just Dance and Poker Face. The album was later reissued to include the extended play The Fame Monster (2009), which yielded the successful singles Bad Romance, Telephone, and Alejandro.

Having sold an estimated 170 million records, Gaga is one of the world's best-selling music artists and the only female artist to achieve four singles each selling at least 10 million copies globally.

She is known for her image reinventions and versatility in the entertainment industry.
