The incredible story of an artist who is just trying to change the world?one sequin at a time
Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, better know as Lady Gaga, was always destined to be different. A talented musician as a child, she learned piano at age four and wrote her first ballad at age of 13. Turning her back on the world of typical teenage girls, she partied hard and made friends with gogo dancers and drag queens, much to the despair of her parents. But she was a born performer, destined to be on the stage. Unlike fake starlets who become famous overnight, Gaga earned her success the hard way, working night after night at sleazy bars and clubs, performing at every club in New York, getting booed offstage, and in the process, finding herself?as a singer, a dancer, a performer, and an artist. She has shocked the public with her crazy outfits, individual sense of style, and headstrong manner. She has sold millions of records, performed to millions of people, and through it all, she has won hearts with her brashness and honesty.
