About Lady Gaga
Songwriter, singer, actress, philanthropist, dancer and fashion designer, Lady Gaga released her first album, The Fame, in 2008; but it wasn't until 2009, when breakthrough first single Just Dance came to mainstream attention that Gaga really exploded onto the scene.
Her second single Pokerface, a synth-pop track with unique robotic hook, followed shortly after and is one of the bestselling singles of all time. Since then, she has gained numerous awards and nominations for a string of hits. Lady Gaga is also renowned for her music videos, with a predilection for the weird and bizarre flavouring many of her visually stunning early music videos.
Her albums include The Fame Monster, Born This Way, ARTPOP, Cheek to Cheek (with Tony Bennett) and Joanne. Her fanbase, nicknamed Little Monsters, have followed ‘Mother Monster’ Lady Gaga’s whirlwind music career spanning over a decade.
Not just a talented singer, Gaga proved her acting ability in the musical drama, A Star is Born, starring opposite Bradley Cooper in the 2018 film. Lady Gaga also penned the lyrics with Mark Ronson for the film’s breakout hit Shallow. The soaring No. 1 song went on to win the Academy Award in 2019 for Best Original Song, along with two GRAMMY Awards and a Golden Globe.
Lady Gaga, real name Stefani Joanne Germanotta, was reportedly inspired by iconic rock band Queen and their famous song Radio Ga Ga to create her stage name. She had her first big break in 2009 due to her leading singles Just Dance and PokerFace from her debut album The Fame.
Her extended play The Fame Monster packed a dance-pop punch with many anthems. Her single Telephone, features Beyoncé, while Bad Romance marked another surreal single along with its GRAMMY Award-winning music video. With a slew of pop hits, Lady Gaga quickly established herself as a force to be reckoned with.
Gaga also attracted attention due to her unique and zany outfits along with her pop music chart-toppers. Her on-stage performances are second to none, with her earlier stage shows combining both the crazy and the incredible along with dazzling choreography and visuals.
Her outfits ensured she would not be forgotten, with her infamous ‘meat dress’ causing controversy at her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2010. However sartorial style aside, Gaga proved her talent by winning 8 of the 13 awards she was nominated for at the 2010 ceremony.
Gaga released her second album Born This Way in 2011, with the titular and empowering lead single reaching No. 1 on the US Billboard Chart along with the album. The singles Judas, The Edge of Glory, and You And I also charted in the top ten.
Gaga’s third album ARTPOP also reached No. 1 when it was released 2013, and Gaga performed the lead single Applause live for the first time at the MTV VMA’s that year.
Her fourth studio album Cheek to Cheek involved a collaboration with jazz star Tony Bennett. The album forged a new path for Gaga, with a completely reinvented sound and a sharp contrast to her previous pop tracks.
Joanne followed in 2016 and is Gaga’s latest album. The album is markedly stripped back compared to her previous work, with a slower tempo and elements of country and soft rock. The album marked Gaga’s fourth No.1 and is another example of Gaga’s versatility as she adapts to different forms of music.
The documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two was released on Netflix in 2017 and explored Gaga’s preparation for her iconic Super Bowl performance along with plenty of behind the scenes action. Along with appearing in the documentary, Gaga last appeared onscreen with Bradley Cooper in A Star is Born.
