Life and career
Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta was born on March 28, 1986, at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, New York City, to an upper middle-class Catholic family. Both of her parents are of Italian origins. Cynthia Louise (née Bissett), a philanthropist and company executive, and Internet entrepreneur Joseph Germanotta, have all been children of a younger sister named Natali. In an interview, Gaga said that her parents came from lower-class families and worked tirelessly for everything. She attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart, a private all-girls Roman Catholic academy from age 11. Gaga has referred to her high-school self as "very dedicated, very studious, and very disciplined," but also "a little afraid." She regarded herself as a misfit and was mocked for "being either too provocative or too eccentric."
When her mother insisted that she be "a cultured young woman," Gaga began playing the piano at age four. She took piano lessons and played through her childhood. The lessons taught her how to create music by ear, rather than reading sheet music. She was encouraged by her parents to play music and enroll her in the Creative Arts Camp. She appeared at open mic nights as an adolescent. In the play Guys and Dolls, as well as Philia, Gaga appeared in the lead roles of Adelaide. She also studied method acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute for ten years. Gaga did not audition for New York shows, although she did appear in a small role as a high-school student in a 2001 episode of The Sopranos titled "The Telltale Moozadell." She later announced that she likes music: she later confessed to an affinity for it:
At the age of 17, Gaga began attending Collaborative Arts Project 21, a New York University (NYU) music school, and lived in a New York University dorm. She studied music, religion, socioeconomic, and politics, and she improved her songwriting skills by writing essays on art, culture, social justice, and politics, including a thesis on pop artists Spencer Tunick and Damien Hirst. She refocused on her music career in 2005 after losing the second semester of her second year at school. That year, she appeared as an uninformed diner for MTV's Boiling Points, a prank reality television show.
Gaga said she was assaulted at age 19, for which she later underwent mental and physical therapy. She has a post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which she attributes to the event and acknowledges doctors', family, and friends for her assistance. Gaga added to the rape, saying that "the one who assaulted me dropped me off the corner at my parents' house because I was vomiting and sick." I'd been [sic] abused because I'd been [sic] abused. "I was held in a studio for months."
In 2005, Gaga recorded two songs with hip-hop artist Melle Mel for an audio book accompanying Cricket Casey's children's book The Portal in the Park. She and some colleagues from NYU formed the SGBand, a club that also performed in the SGBand. They appeared on television shows around New York and became a fixture of the downtown Lower East Side club scene. Talent scout Wendy Starland recommended her to music producer Rob Fusari after the 2006 Songwriters Hall of Fame New Songwriters Showcase at the Cutting Room in June. Fusari collaborated with Gaga, who travelled frequently to New Jersey, assisting in the creation of her songs and writing new content. The producer revealed that they began dating in May 2006 and claimed to be the first person to call her "Lady Gaga," which was derived from Queen's song "Radio Ga Ga Ga." Their relationship lasted until January 2007.
To promote her work, Fusari and Gaga formed Team Lovechild, LLC. They recorded and released electropop songs, delivering them to music industry executives. Joshua Sarubin, the manager of Artists and repertoire (A&R) at Def Jam Recordings, responded positively, and after Sarubin's boss Antonio "L.A. Reid's approval, Gaga joined Def Jam in September 2006. She was dropped from the brand three months later and returned to her family's house for Christmas. According to Gaga, she began performing at neoburlesque performances, which, in turn, represented liberty. During this period, she met performance artist Lady Starlight, who helped shape her onstage persona. Both the pair performed at venues such as the Mercury Lounge, the Bitter End, and the Rockwood Music Hall in downtown. The Ultimate Pop Burlesque Rockshow, a tribute to 1970s variety acts, was named "Lady Gaga and the Starlight Revue" and billed as "The Ultimate Pop Burlesque Rockshow." They appeared at the 2007 Lollapalooza music festival.
Gaga began incorporating pop melodies and David Bowie's glam rock style into her songs after initially focusing on avant-garde electronic dance music. Although Gaga and Starlight were on tour, Fusari continued to produce the songs with her, noting them to the producer and record executive Vincent Herbert. Herbert signed Gaga to his label Streamline Records, an Interscope Records imprint, in November 2007. Herbert was later credited with her discovery by Gaga. Gaga, who served as an apprentice songwriter during an internship at Famous Music Publishing, has signed a Sony/ATV music publishing contract. As a result, she was hired to write songs for Britney Spears, New Kids on the Block, Fergie, and the Pussycat Dolls. When she sang a reference vocal for one of his songs in studio, musician Akon was impressed with her singing skills at Interscope. Akon convinced Jimmy Iovine, chairman and CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M Records (a brother group for Def Jam), to sign a joint contract with Gaga that also signs his own brand KonLive, making her her her "franchise player."
Gaga worked with songwriter and producer RedOne in late 2007. She spent a week in the recording studio for a week on her debut album, signing with Cherrytree Records, an Interscope imprint founded by producer and songwriter Martin Kierszenbaum; she also wrote four songs with Kierszenbaum. Despite securing a record deal, she said that some radio stations found her music "racy," "dance-oriented," and "underground" for the mainstream market, to which she responded: "I'm telling you, this is what's next."
By 2008, Gaga had moved to Los Angeles to complete her debut album, The Fame, and to form her own creative team, based on Andy Warhol's The Factory. The Fame was launched on August 19, 2008, and it has risen to number one in Austria, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, as well as the top five in Australia and the United States.

Except that "Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)" was included on Hitmixes in August 2009, remixed versions of The Fame's singles, except "Nothing Else I Can Say)" was included on the Hitmixes. The Fame and "Poker Face" received Best Dance/Electronica Album and Best Dance Recording at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, respectively.

She wrote eight songs for The Fame Monster, a reissue of The Fame while on tour the globe. On November 18, 2009, those new songs were also released as a complete EP. Its first single, "Bad Romance," was released a month before and debuted in Canada and the United Kingdom and was ranked number one in Canada and the United Kingdom, and number two in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Beyoncé's "telephone" became the EP's second single and became Gaga's fourth UK number one. "Alejandro," the Catholic League's third single, debuted at number one in Finland and sparked controversy when its music video was deemed blasphemous by the Catholic League. Both songs made it to the top of the US charts. In April 2010, the YouTube video for "Bad Romance" became the most watched on YouTube, and in October, Gaga became the first individual with more than billion combined views. She received eight awards from 13 nominations, including Video of the Year for "Bad Romance" at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. She was the first female to receive two awards for Video of the Year at the same awards for a single year.

I was in the studio at Henson preparing for Joker, leaving to go home for the night and someone said “Mick wants to see you.” I only know one Mick, so I walked down to a studio at the other end of the hall and opened the door. It was a portal to the 70’s. I saw Mick, Keith, Ronnie. Stevie Wonder was there along with all the musicians they were collaborating with. Steve Jordan on the drums. Family & friends hanging out listening on big speakers while Andrew Watt smiled marveling at their unreleased album. We hung out for a bit listening to music and catching up. Mick then asked if I’d hang in the live room while they cut another record. I sat down on the floor, my back against a Rhodes-someone handed me some headphones and eventually a mic. Mick was towering over me smiling saying “go on and do your thing then.” I listened to the music and scribbled furiously trying to learn the tune and then freestyled and sang along..trying not to step on everyone’s toes cuz Andrew had the whole room mic’d the way they did back in the day, and I didn’t want my vocals to bleed into any of the magic they’d been making. The Rhodes was vibrating furiously through my back-Stevie was playing and my whole body was shaking with every note. We played for a few hours and everyone was so excited having me there (this felt so exciting if not slightly insane). I went home not thinking much of it, I loved the song and all the musicians but I thought we were just hangin. Andrew texted me the next day saying Mick wanted to cut the vocals WITH me that night-the way he’d cut them back in the day. Same room, two mics. Single takes. I thought about Mary Clayton…Gimme Shelter…gospel and soul. I thought about my favorite old Stones tunes and all the great vocalists who had sung with Mick, making what we know now as a “sound” unique to a band that defined a huge piece of rock’n’roll. Then we cut it live. Making the “Sweet Sounds of Heaven.” I sang in a way I never really sang before except for with Mick. And Andrew and I both cried-there’s something about witnessing music history and when you get to be a part of it I think that’s exactly what our heaven feels like. It’s just a sweet sound.
