All You Need To Know About Lady Gaga
Singer, songwriter and actress Lady Gaga – whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – has been astounding fans for more than a decade now. Made infamous by her ‘meat dress’ which she wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and beloved by many after her stellar performance next to Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born, there’s more to Lady Gaga than meets the eye.
A Born Musician
While most musicians were taught how to play their particular musical instrument – often at an incredibly early age – Lady Gaga taught herself to play the piano at the tender age of four. By the time that she was 13, she had begun to compose songs. Before she hit it big as a singer, she composed songs for Britney Spears, The Pussycat Dolls as well as Jennifer Lopez.
Well, we’re not sure if they were friends per se, but Lady Gaga did go to school with former-BFFs-and-now friends Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie. They all went to the Convent of Sacred Heart in New York City.
Most Popular Songs
Lady Gaga apparently penned two of her hits – ‘Born This Way’ and ‘Just Dance’ – in ten minutes flat. Born This Way sold 1.11 million albums. Just Dance spent 75 weeks on the Billboard Top 100. ‘Poker Face’ is Lady Gaga’s best-selling song in the UK and was also the best-selling single of 2009. This was overtaken by ‘Shallow’ with Bradley Cooper.
A Good Heart
Lady Gaga organised a number of performances as a tribute to the many health-care workers battling Covid-19. She did this in partnership with the World Health Organization and the Global Citizen charity.
The Personal Side
On a personal note, Lady Gaga has 24 tattoos which are mostly on the left-hand side of her body. When she orders drinks, you’re most likely to find her ordering a whiskey. She has been linked to many men over the years. She’s almost walked down the aisle but has never arrived at the altar.
Unlike other songstresses, Lady Gaga has not dated other celebrities preferring to choose men for who they are and not their star status. Past boyfriends include:
- Fashion designer, Matthew Williams,
- Bar owner and nightclub promoter, Lüc Carl,
- Actor Taylor Kinney (they were engaged)
- Christian Carino (they were also engaged)
- Dan Horton
- Michael Polansky
Michael is a graduate of Harvard University and is a CEO. They are currently together. In addition, he is also the head of Sean Parker’s (who co-founded Facebook) Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy. In addition, Michael is the founder and executive director of The Parker Foundation.
Everyone wondered if Lady Gaga was romantically involved with Bradley Cooper who played her husband on A Star Is Born. Although they gave quite steamy performances at awards shows, of the Shallow single, both of their camps deny that anything happened – even after Bradley split from his supermodel wife shortly after filming of the movie came to an end. We’ll never know, but the odds were as good as winning in online slots, and it does look suspicious!
