Lady Gaga’s Biography

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, better known by her stage name Lady Gaga, is an American singer and songwriter. She was born on March 28, 1986. Prior to leaving CAP21 to pursue a career in music, she first worked as a performer, participating in high school plays, then studied at Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.

Gaga worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing after quitting a rock band, taking part in the Lower East Side’s avant-garde performance art scene, and losing her contract with Def Jam Recordings. Akon heard her singing there and assisted her in signing a joint contract with Interscope Records and his company, KonLive Distribution.

With the release of her critically acclaimed and commercially successful debut album The Fame (2008), which included the number-one singles “Just Dance” and “Poker Face” worldwide, Gaga gained notoriety. The Fame Monster, a follow-up EP, was well received and featured the hit singles “Bad Romance,” “Telephone,” and “Alejandro.”

Born This Way, her second studio album, debuted at the top of the charts in more than 20 nations, including the United States, where it sold over a million copies in its first week of release. Gaga is renowned for her extravagant and multifaceted contributions to the music business through her style, live shows, and music videos. She is one of the best-selling musicians of all time, with global album and single sales of 27 million and 125 million, respectively, as of June 2014.

Lady Gaga’s never been married, although she’s been engaged twice before. In 2011, she started dating ChicagoFire star Taylor Kinney, who starred in the video for her song “Yoü And I.” The couple became engaged on Valentine’s Day 2015—Kinney gave her a heart-shaped ring—but broke things off two years later. A year later, she became romantically linked to Christian Carino, a Hollywood talent agent; the couple became engaged soon after that. By early 2019, however, they had broken up.

Then she moved on with Michael Polansky  Gaga’s beau of two years, Polansky, has an impressive resume: A Harvard grad and tech entrepreneur, he is currently the executive director of the Parker Foundation, a philanthropic organization started by Sean Parker, who co-founded Facebook. The couple was first spotted in Las Vegas at NoMad Restaurant on New Year’s Eve 2020, walking hand-in-hand and smooching at midnight.

In early February 2020, they went Instagram-official with an adorable photo featuring Gaga sitting in Polansky’s lap. The pair also began collaborating professionally. He was part of the team for 2020’s Gaga-curated One World: Together at Home fundraiser.

Lady Gaga has starred in a total of four movies altogether since the start of her acting career: A Star Is Born (2018), House Of Gucci (2021), Machete Kills (2013), and her Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two. She also starred in the popular TV series American Horror Story for a duration of two seasons, taking on the roles of a cunning vampire and an evil English witch.

Meat Dress

On Sunday, September 12, 2010, Lady Gaga hit the MTV Video Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles for one of the biggest nights of her career, dressed in nothing but meat. Speculations about the purpose behind the dress were as varied as they were wild, with a whole host of different people and organizations taking offence and PETA condemning the outlandish attire.

However, Lady Gaga’s meat dress wasn’t just another attention-grabbing outfit: it was actually meant as a powerful political statement highlighting her distaste for the US military’s don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy. Gaga said the look referred to a speech she made, The Prime Rib of America, which urged the US military not to discriminate against gay men and lesbians who wanted to serve in the army.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame paid $6,000 to taxidermist Sergio Vigilato to preserve the dress. It had been frozen following the VMAs, although Vigilato reportedly discovered signs of decomposition on the dress that had occurred prior to it being frozen, and noted it was emitting an odour once it was defrosted. It was treated with bleach, formaldehyde and detergent to kill any bacteria, and was reconditioned by being dyed dark red once it was preserved, to give it the same appearance as when first worn.
