Lady Gaga grew up Stefani Germanotta in New York City. At age 17 she gained early entrance into NYU and shortly thereafter dropped out to pursue her career in music. It was here that the persona “Lady Gaga” was born.
When she first arrived on the scene, Gaga was as shocking as she was talented. She often wore outlandish outfits, including a dress made of raw meat. What was undeniable though were her musical talents and today she’s sold over 27 million records worldwide.
