Lady Gaga - One Girl Many Styles

She’s popped up on the music scene smashing charts, and making everyone ask one and the same question, who’s Lady GaGa?
She is a new music world sensation. She’s obviously talented. At 4 GaGa learned to play the piano by ear. By the age of 13, she had written her first piano ballad. At 14, she played open mike nights at clubs. At age 17, she was admitted to Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. By 20, she was signed to a record label and writing songs for other artists. And she released her debut album The Fame at 22.
Lady Gaga (born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta; March 28, 1986) is an American singer, songwriter, fashion designer, pianist and performance artist. She began performing in the rock music scene of New York City's Lower East Side.During her early time at Interscope, Gaga worked as a songwriter for fellow label artists and captured the attention of Akon, who recognized her vocal talent, and had her also sign to to his own label, Kon Live Distribution. Her debut album The Fame was released in August 2008 and was a critical and commercial success. In addition to receiving generally positive reviews, it went number-one in four countries, also topping the Billboard Top Electronic Albums chart in the United States. The album's first two singles, "Just Dance" and "Poker Face", co-written and co-produced with RedOne, have become international number-one hits, and the former was nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 51st Grammy Awards.
In early 2009, after having opened for New Kids on the Block and the Pussycat Dolls, Gaga embarked on her first headlining tour, The Fame Ball Tour. By the end of 2009, Gaga released The Fame Monster, an extension of The Fame, containing eight new songs with the global chart-topping lead single "Bad Romance", as well as having embarked on her second headlining tour of the year, The Monster Ball Tour. Gaga is inspired by glam rockers such as David Bowie and Queen, as well as pop singers like Michael Jackson and Madonna. She is also inspired by fashion, which she has said is an essential component to her songwriting and performances. To date she has sold over 20 million digital singles and eight million albums worldwide.
