Lady Gaga is an American pop singer-songwriter who was born on Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on March 28, 1986 in New York City. She was inspired by musical artists such as David Bowie, Elton John, Queen Michael Jackson, Madonna, Amy Winehouse and many more. She is well known for her outrageous sense of style in fashion, stage performances, and music videos. However, this did not come easily for her. She had to put a lot of effort, practice, and dedication into her music career. She started playing piano at just 4 years old and writing piano ballads as a young teenager. Additionally, when Lady Gaga was just 11 years old, she attended Covent of the Sacred Heart, a private girls only Roman Catholic school. At 17, Gaga was one of 20 people worldwide to gain acceptance into the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. There she studied music composition and improved her songwriting skills. However, by the second semester of her sophomore year, she decided to withdraw in order to pursue her music career. Not too long afterwards, Gaga was signed to Streamline Records and there she met Akon. The rapper Akon recognized Gaga’s vocal abilities and talents and immediately signed her to his own label, Kon Live Distribution. Lady Gaga has released three music albums since she started her music career. She has released Red and Blue, The Fame, and The Fame Monster. Also, she is working on an album that is called Born This Way, which is scheduled to release on May 23, 2011. Her second album, The Fame was wildly successful internationally and nationally. This album reached number one on the record charts of 6 countries, has won its spot in many top ten lists worldwide, come in at number two on the Billboard 200 US chart, and topped many other charts as well. Her next album, The Fame Monster achieved similar success. As I had already mentioned, Born This Way has not yet been released
