Lady GaGa Biography
Lady GaGa was born Stefani Germanotta in Manhattan, New York in 1986. Germanotta began playing piano at the age of 4, wrote her first piano ballad at 13, and performed at open mic nights at the age of 14. She took the lead role in many high school plays. She auditioned for several New York shows but was unsuccessful in her efforts.
Her mother encouraged her to apply for the Collaborative Arts Project 21, which is a musical theater training company at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. At 17, she was one of only 20 students who gained early admission. She worked on her songwriting skills and auditioned for various roles. GaGa withdrew from this program at 19 to work on her music career full time. Her father paid her rent for one year, with the condition that she return to school if she couldn’t find work. She began playing in clubs and went a bit wild with her stage outfits, including playing in a bikini.
GaGa’s debut album, released in 2008, was a commercial success with two #1 international hits “Just Dance” and “Poker Face”. Her next album had 3 #1 hits, and her third album also had several hits. GaGa has sold more than 64 million singles and 23 million albums worldwide. Her singles are still some of the world’s best-selling tracks. She has received 5 Grammy Awards and 13 MTV music video awards.
GaGa’s earnings continue to fall from her peak of $220 million in 2011. She has a current net worth of $33 million. Her third album did not do as well as expected and a hip injury caused her to cut out dates from her world tour. Nevertheless, GaGa is extremely popular and only 29, so there is plenty of time for her to return to the money making powerhouse she once was.
