Lady Gaga

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (born March 28, 1986), better known by her stage name Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She was involved in theatre early on, appearing in high school plays, and studied at CAP21 through New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, but dropped out to pursue a musical career. After quitting a rock band, taking part in the Lower East Side's avant garde performance art circuit, and being removed from a contract with Def Jam Recordings, Gaga pursued songwriting for Sony/ATV Music Publishing.

Gaga rose to prominence with her first album The Fame (2008). The record became a huge success, producing global chart-topping singles such as "Just Dance" and "Poker Face". Her follow-up EP, The Fame Monster (2009), was met with a similar reception and released the successful singles "Bad Romance", "Telephone", and "Alejandro". Gaga's second full-length album Born This Way was released in 2011, topping the charts in more than 20 countries worldwide, including the United States, where it sold over one million copies in the first week alone. The album produced number one single "Born This Way". Her third album Artpop, released in 2013, topped the US charts and included the successful singles "Applause" and "Do What U Want". 

In 2014, Gaga released her first collaborative jazz album with Tony Bennett titled Cheek to Cheek, which debuted at number one in the United States and became her third consecutive number one album in the country.
