Where Is Lady Gaga From?
Lady Gaga fans often ask, "Where is Lady Gaga from?" The background to one of today's most popular artists indeed puts everything into perspective, as Lady Gaga's fame seems to have exploded from nowhere. Here is some more information on Lady Gaga.
Early Life. Lady Gaga came from New York City, where she was born. Born March 28, 1986, she was named Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. Lady Gaga's parents are Cynthia and Joseph Germanotta, the latter an Internet entrepreneur. She has one sister. Raised a Roman Catholic, she attended a private all-girls Roman Catholic school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, though she has said she came from a lower-class family. New York City is certainly Lady Gaga's hometown, where she would live until moving to Los Angeles to work on her first album.
Early Musical Talent. Lady Gaga began early in the world of music. Learning the piano at four years old, she composed her first piano ballad at 13 and was performing at open mike nights by the age of 14, already making way into her creative abilities and talent. In high school she was an avid actress in musicals, playing lead roles Philia in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" and Adelaide in "Guys and Dolls." As seen in her ability to add drama currently, this early talent certainly played a big role in who she is today.
College and Career. Gaga went to New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where she studied music. She later withdrew, in her second year, in order to pursue her music career. Lady Gaga pursued a number of opportunities in New York City, including burlesque shows, downtown clubs, and even as a songwriter for popular artists (such as Britney Spears and the Pussycat Dolls). These formed a wide range of experience that would allow Lady Gaga to have the dominat stage presence she possesses today. Later Lady Gage relocated to Los Angeles to finish her debut album, which marked the first major move away from her hometown of New York City.
