Lady Gaga is an American pop singer and songwriter known for her bold fashion sense and fearless performances. Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta March 28, 1986, Lady Gaga is inspired by glam rock artists like David Bowie, Elton John and Queen, as well as pop singers such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Amy Winehouse. She often wears outfits to shock audiences - recall the meat dress, and all of her pant-less ensembles.
The name Lady Gaga is actually a reference to the Queen hit, “Radio Ga Ga,” one of Producer Rob Fusari’s favorites from the band.
“Every day, when Stef came to the studio, instead of saying hello, I would start singing ‘Radio Ga Ga,’ ” Fusari explains. “That was her entrance song.” Germanotta was in the midst of brainstorming a stage moniker, when she received a text from Fusari that read “Lady Gaga.” “It was actually a glitch,” says Fusari. “I typed ‘Radio Ga Ga’ in a text and it did an autocorrect so somehow ‘Radio’ got changed to ‘Lady.’ She texted me back, ‘That’s it.’ After that day, she was Lady Gaga. She’s like. ‘Don’t ever call me Stefani again.’ ” [nj.com]
