Lady Gaga was born in Yonkers, New York on March 28, 1986. She is the eldest child to Italian American parents Joseph and Cynthia Germanotta. At the age of eleven Gaga was sent to join Juilliard School in Manhattan, but instead attended a private Catholic school. She expressed her musical talent at an early age by learning piano at the age of four. Gaga wrote her first piano ballad at thirteen and began performing at open mic nights by the age of fourteen. By the age of seventeen, she gained early admission to the Tisch School of the Arts and studied music. There, she improved her songwriting skills by composing essays and analytical papers focusing on topics such as art and religion.

Musical Style & Influences
Lady Gaga has been primarily influenced by pop singers Madonna and Michael Jackson, as well as glam rock stars such as the band Queen and David Bowie. Her stage name was inspired by the Queen song "Radio Ga Ga". Artist Andy Warhol, poet Rainer Maria Rilke, fashion icon/actress/singer Grace Jones have all been cited as inspirations. The structure of Gaga's music is said to be reminiscent of classic 1980s pop and 1990s Europop. Lady Gaga has stated that she is "very into fashion" and that it is "everything" to her. Her love of fashion came from her mother, who she stated was "always very well kept and beautiful." Gaga claims that: "When I'm writing music, I'm thinking about the clothes I want to wear on stage. It's all about everything altogether—performance art, pop performance art, fashion. For me, it's everything coming together and being a real story that will bring back the super-fan. I want to bring that back. I want the imagery to be so strong that fans will want to eat and taste and lick every part of us." Gaga has her own creative production team called the Haus of Gaga, which she handles personally. The team creates many of her clothes, stage props, and hairdos.

Lad
y Gaga's Tattoos
Lady Gaga is inked. She has at least four tattoos, although she has said in interviews that she thinks she has about seven. The tattoo on her lower back was done by Kat D from TV's L.A Ink. Gaga got a new tattoo in August 2009 while on her Asian Tour in Japan. Her new tattoo is on the inside of her left arm and is a curling script that wraps around her arm. It is a quote from German poet Rainer Maria Rilke "In the deepest hour of the night, confess to yourself that you would die if you were forbidden to write. And look deep into your heart where it spreads its roots, the answer, and ask yourself, must I write?"

Lady Gaga Quotes

"I was told for a very long time that I was not pretty enough, too strange, not edgy enough. But I've always been famous; it is just that nobody knew. ... There are times when it can be a lot to deal with, but always when I get up in the morning I try to find that very joyful place that reminds me that I would die if someone took it all away. If someone did that I wouldn't be a person any more." 
— Lady GaGa / May 2009


"I don't feel like I look like the other perfect little pop singers, I think I'm changing what people think is sexy." 
— Lady GaGa / May 2009




"Whether I've got a number one record or nobody knows who the hell I am, I'm going to still make music, It's always fun for me."  — Lady GaGa / May 2009



"And, now, I’m just trying to change the world one sequin at a time."  — Lady GaGa

THE FAME MONSTER


The Fame Monster
is the second
studio album by Lady Gaga released on November 18, 2009. The album's eight songs were initially intended to be part of a re-release of Gaga's debut album The Fame. However, Gaga announced that the new songs would be available as a stand alone album, as she thought the re-release was too expensive and that, as the piece represents a separate conceptual and musical body of work, it does not need the songs of The Fame to support it. A Super Deluxe Fame Monster pack containing the two releases will be released on December 15, 2009. The album deals with the darker side of fame, as experienced by Lady Gaga over the course of 2008–2009 while travelling around the world, and are expressed through a monster metaphor. Gaga compared the feel of her debut album and The Fame Monster with the Yin and yang concept. Cover artwork was done by Hedi Slimane and has a gothic look which Gaga had to convince her record company to allow her to shoot. The composition takes its inspiration from Gothic music and fashion shows. Contemporary critics gave a mixed to positive review of the album, majority of them complimenting the songs "Bad Romance" and "Dance in the Dark". In some countries the album charted together with The Fame while in others like the United States, Canada and Japan, it charted as a separate album. It has reached top ten in most of the major markets. "Bad Romance" was released as the album's first single. It topped the Canadian chart while reaching the top ten in United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Ireland and Sweden. She announced The Monster Ball Tour supporting the album, which started on November 27, 2009 and will continue through June 2010.
