@KingLadyGaga that is so special
Lady Gaga (born Joanne Stefani Germanotta, 28.3.1986) is an American singer and songwriter. She started working for Interscope Records when she was 20 years old, writing songs for Pussycat Dolls, among others.
Net Worth: Lady Gaga has earnings of $33 million (Forbes 2014).
Childhood: Lady Gaga was born in Yonkers, New York. Her parents are Italian and she attended a private school, the Catholic Convent of the Sacred Heart. Previous pupils of the school include Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton and Caroline Kennedy. She started to learn piano as a young child and wrote her first ballad when she was 13 years old. By 14, she was performing at open mic nights and at 17, she earned early admission as a music student to the Tisch School of Arts at New York University. She is one of only 20 people in the world to have ever done so. Lady Gaga performed in a number of bands, such as SGBand and Mackin Pulsifer, playing venues on the Lower East Side. She soon decided to break away from rock 'n' roll music, and began performing in burlesque shows.
Career: Lady Gaga got her name when the producer Rob Fusari compared her vocal style to that of Freddie Mercury and took the nickname from the Queen song 'Radio Gaga'. It was Fusari that helped her to write some of her early hits, including 'Disco Heaven', 'Dirty Ice Cream' and 'Beautiful, Dirty, Rich'. Lady Gaga was briefly signed to Def Jam but the working relationship was terminated after just a few months. In 2008, she was signed to Interscope Records. She has been contracted to write songs for a number of high profile pop acts, including Britney Spears, New Kids On the Block and Fergie from Black Eyed Peas. Akon recognized Lady Gaga's vocal talent when she laid down guide vocals for tracks that she had written for one of his acts. Akon introduced her to RedOne, who produced her debut album. The first track that they produced together was a mash-up of AC/DC's 'T.N.T.' and Mötley Crüe's 'Girls, Girls, Girls'. In 2007, Lady Gaga performed her act Lady Gaga and The Starlight Revue - with performance artist Lady Starlight - at the Lollapalooza festival. The following year, Gaga moved to Los Angeles and worked on the completion of her debut album, The Fame. She works with a collective of artists, clothes designers, stage designers and sound artists, under the collective name 'Haus of Gaga'. The first single to be released from The Fame was 'Just Dance', which reached number one in five different countries. This was followed with 'Poker Face', which went one better and reached number one in six countries. Lady Gaga's first concert tour was with the newly-reformed New Kids On The Block. Despite having secured a record deal with a branch of Interscope Records, there were some company executives who were concerned that her sound and image were too dance-orientated and too racy for the mainstream. Her response was "My name is Lady Gaga, I've been on the music scene for years, and I'm telling you, this is what's next." She was proved right, as her debut album The Fame has sold over 4 million copies in the USA alone. After touring in support of The Pussycat Dolls, Lady Gaga embarked on her first headline tour, The Fame Ball Tour, which ran from March to September 2009. Whilst on tour, she also wrote a collection of eight songs, released under the title The Fame Monster. The debut single from this album, 'Bad Romance' was a number one in 18 countries across the globe. She became the first artist to have three singles pass the four million mark in digital sales. She also won the coveted Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Her next single, 'Telephone', featured Beyonce Knowles and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. The video for the single, which referenced the movie Kill Bill: Vol. 1 attracted a great deal of attention for its overt sexuality, product placement and outlandish costumes. Her following single, 'Alejandro' attracted negative attention from the Catholic church for its apparently blasphemous content. As The Fame Monster received such a positive response, Lady Gaga swiftly headed back out on tour, with The Monster Ball Tour, which eventually ran for a year and a half. She also performed at the 2009 Royal Variety Performance in London, where she sang 'Speechless', in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II. The following January, she performed at the Grammy Awards, performing a duet with Elton John. Lady Gaga's third major release, Born This Way saw the light of day in May 2011. She fused a number of different styles on the album and its lead single was the popular 'Born This Way'. A duet between Lady Gaga and Elton John, entitled 'Hello Hello' featured in the film Gnomio & Juliet. Gaga went on to release 'Judas', 'The Edge of Glory' and 'Hair' before releasing the album. She then released 'You and I' and 'Marry the Night' as singles after the album was in the shops. She also recorded a jazz version of 'the Lady Is A Tramp', with Tony Bennett. She attended the MTV Video Music Awards dressed as her male alter ego, Jo Calderone. ARTPOP was released universally on 11th November 2013, part of the promotion included the world's first 'Flying Dress', also know as Volantis. To promote 'ArtPOP', Gaga embarked on her ArtRave: The Artpop Ball tour. During that time she also made her feature film debut in Robert Rodriguez's 'Machete Kills' opposite Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez. She also made a cameo in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'. Gaga worked with Tony Bennett on a collaborative jazz album called 'Cheek to Cheek', released in 2014. Lady Gaga has been involved in various charitable endeavours including LGBT rights campaigns and setting up her Born This Way Foundation which aims to help young people with confidence issues.
Personal Life: Lady Gaga has been noted for her shocking behaviour throughout her career. From her elaborate outfits - that once included a dress made from raw meat - to going clothing-less altogether, she has grabbed headlines in the past few years based on her unique creativity. She caused controversy in the UK with violent theatrics on stage during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, which came only days after a brutal mass murder in the north of England and she was accused of glorifying bulemia by employing vomit artist Millie Brown to throw up on her during her 2014 SXSW performance. Gaga has previously dated music producer Rob Fusari who worked with her professionally at the start of her career. She is currently in a relationship with actor and model Taylor Kinney. After the release of her single 'Poker Face', she revealed that it written in regards to her bisexuality. Gaga was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease lupus but she claims she is not affected by the symptons.
Because there's nothing like the originals.
Lady GaGa insists that she'll never stop singing the songs her fans love, no matter how much her music changes throughout her career. She may have just released her sixth studio album 'Joanne', but she's always down to play her 2008 smash hit 'Poker Face' at shows, especially if she's still performing 50 years on.
Lady Gaga will never stop performing 'Poker Face'
Her new album 'Joanne' is definitely a departure from her previous work. This time, the issues she explores go deeper, and there's much more meaning within the lyrics than say 'Poker Face' or 'Bad Romance'. But even if her songwriting tastes have changed, she certainly has no regrets and still loves to perform her classics.

Time to learn what Kathy Bates' character has to do with all of this.
The third episode of 'American Horror Story: Roanoke' has arrived and we finally learn the story behind the violent haunting of Shelby and Matt's North Carolina farmhouse. However, little Flora is still missing and things are getting personal. You'd think it would be time to leave the area, but these characters are made of sturdier stuff.
American Horror Story: Roanoke
Episode one introduced this season's concept: 'My Roanake Nightmare'. It's basically a televised documentary about Shelby and Matt's paranormal experiences where they are played by Lily Rabe and Andre Holland in the interview segments and Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. in the reenactments. Angela Bassett plays Matt's ex-cop sister Lee.
The follow up to ‘Art Pop’ arrives in October.
Lady GaGa has unveiled the tracklist for her fifth studio album Joanne, which is released on October 21. The album follows single ‘Perfect Illusion’ which marked Gaga’s musical comeback earlier this month.

Lady Gaga and Denis O'Hare are back in action.
The second episode of 'American Horror Story: Roanoke' aired last night (September 21st 2016) and we're no closer to finding out what's really going on inside that North Caroline farmhouse. It's safe to say that Shelby and Matt are finally in agreement that they are being haunted, but that doesn't even get near to explaining what's happening. Spoilers ahead.
American Horror Story presents Roanoke: Episode 2
We knew to expect Lady GaGa's return to the show and it was a treat that we didn't have to wait longer than the first episode. She arrived for episode 2 as a creepy Roanoke spirit and Kathy Bates' right hand man. Together they performed a horrific human sacrifice ceremony in the surrounding woodland, the victim's head obscured with the head of a pig. Shelby and Matt walk right in on it, finally realising what they are dealing with: cannibals.
Lady Gaga has a new thing about swinging her microphone.
Lady GaGa has unveiled the official video for her new single 'Perfect Illusion'. The clip came yesterday (September 20th 2016), just one month ahead of the release of her next album 'Joanne'. Apparently, it was shot over a period of two days in a desert just outside of Los Angeles.
Lady Gaga unveils her new video for 'Perfect Illusion'
Directed by Andrea Gelardin and Ruth Hogben, and produced by Keeley Gould, the video opens with Lady Gaga dancing for a crowd in the sun, swinging her microphone over her head like a lasso. It then cuts to the singer driving erratically through the desert, before she ends up rocking out in the club.

The 30 year old pop icon revealed the news in an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio today (September 15th), and explained that the record is named after her late aunt, who died at the age of 19 from lupus.
Joanne is also Lady Gaga’s actual middle name (she was born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta), and her parents own an Italian restaurant in New York City called Joanne Trattoria. The record’s artwork and sleeve notes also contain Joanne’s own handwriting, as well as images of objects from her life.
