Lena Kovadlo is a writer for various content sharing websites. She's an author of 10 books and helps other authors publish their books.

Lady Gaga is a New York City native. Her real name is actually Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. Lady Gaga is a stage name that is cool, stands out and is easy to remember. I doubt people would remember her real name if she decided to use that instead. It's even hard to pronounce, at least for me.

Lady Gaga is a singer, songwriter, musician, dancer and top-selling recording artist whose influence comes from glam rock artists David Bowie and Queen. Her musical sound includes pop, dance, and electronica.

Since Lady Gaga turned up on the music scene, she has taken the world by storm. She has released three albums, selling millions of copies world-wide. She has also embarked on three sold out tours - The Fame, Monster Ball, and Born This Way Ball.

Lady Gaga has fans all over the world and everywhere you turn people are going "gaga" for this extremely talented and standout artist. They sing her songs, dress like her, and aspire to be like her. They just can't get enough of Lady Gaga.

Lady Gaga's Albums

The Fame was released in 2008 and was Lady Gaga's first studio album. It was certified 3x platinum in the US, selling over three million copies, and garnered the hit singles Just Dance, Poker Face, Love Game, and Paparazzi. Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say) was not released in the United States, but it was released as a single internationally.

The Fame Monster was released in 2009, and was certified platinum in the US, selling over one million copies, and garnered the hit singles Bad Romance, Telephone (featuring Beyonce), and Alejandro. The Fame Monster was released as a stand alone album, but it was also released as a 2-disc deluxe edition, which included all the songs from The Fame Monster album plus all the songs from The Fame album.

Born This Way was released in 2011, selling over a million copies in the first week of release in the US. It garnered the hit single Born This Way, Judas, The Edge of Glory, You and I,and Marry the Night.

Artpop was released in 2013, debuting at #1 on the Billboard charts. It garnered the hit singles Applause, Do What U Want, and G.U.Y.
