Short bio: 

Lady Gaga was born as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on March 28, 1986 in Yonkers, New York. She attended New York University's Tisch School for the Arts but left to find creative expression. When Gaga was 20 (in 2007) she began working at Interscope Records as a songwriter for other artists on the label. Those artists included Britney Spears, New Kids on the Block, and The Pussycat Dolls. R&B singer Akon discovered Gaga while she was performing a burlesque show that she created, called "Lady Gaga and the Starlight Revue." Impressed, Akon signed the performer to his label under the Interscope umbrella, Kon Live. Her debut album, The Fame, was a huge success, and the single "Poker Face" topped charts in almost every category, in almost every country.

Lady Gaga is recognized for her flamboyant and diverse style in her fashion, performances and music videos. Gaga had sold an more than 23 million albums and 64 million singles worldwide. She's received five Grammy Awards and 13 MTV Video Music Awards. Lady Gaga has consecutively appeared on Billboard magazine's Artists of the Year (scoring the definitive title in 2010), ranked fourth in VH1's list of 100 Greatest Women in Music, and is the sixth best selling digital singles artist in US according to RIAA.

Wish she would use her beautiful original name. Love to see more performances like the one at this year's Oscars. No need for all the Circus like shows and costumes. She can still fill arenas even if she's wearing classy clothes and that amazing instrument called VOICE. Start a new tour with a new theme. Everyone was blown away by her grace and performance at the Oscars. What a class act to leave the stage so Julie Andrews will have the spot light. She could have stayed to the side somewhere on the stage, but she chose not to. I call that TOTAL RESPECT! Stefani, Joanne, Angelina Germanotta, you are a talented classy lady!

I'm the most unlikely person you will ever hear from. I'm a forester in Oregon so far from your life. Just wanted to say your performance in the Super Bowl was incredible. You showed class, respectfulness, and most of all talent. You moved me!!! Great hod.

Hi there!
My name is Tyler. I've been hooked on your music since your first big singles came out. My favorite song, by far, is Born This Way. It might be cliche, but it really has helped me cope so much with what I've had going on in my life. As a transgender person living in Texas with conservative, republican, Catholic parents, it's very difficult to get my help or support. So I wanted to thank you for all that you do for people who are different.
I was also wondering if there was any way you would be willing to support/advertise to your fans if I set up a gofundme? I am currently in dire need of top surgery due to rib problems. I can no longer bind, which causes an extreme amount of body dysphoria and bouts of depression that is really hard to handle at times. And using any other form of chest support, even ones that girls use, is painful due to the damage being caused by a binder that I don't even wear that often. My parents will not cover any of the costs and blame me for every problem I've been facing. I'm not allowed to even see my gender therapist very often anymore because they realized that she was "supportive of the idea of sinning," and they don't want anyone supporting my transition. I am 18 years old and starting college next semester and was unable to get a job this past school year because of lack of transportation and because my parents decided to move, so I have no way to get money to fund either this emergency top surgery or for any other transition necessities such as starting testosterone, going to therapy, or going to check-ups.
No matter what response I get from this, I will always appreciate the support you've given my community, and I will always have the greatest respect for you. Thank you for everything, stay beautiful!

Dear Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta - Lady Gaga,

I am fashion/costume designer experienced in luxury brands, designing for artists and top stars. I am a big fan of You and I would like to collaborate with You (or Your personal designer). My design style is artistic, modern with futuristic elements but at the same time it is elegant and very well made with high finishing.

I would be so happy from hearing from You (or Your designer).

Kind regards,

Dear Lady Gaga, I don't know if this will teach you. My grandson Gordo is totally obsessed with you. He is quite the odd duck and frustrates us but keeps us laughing all the time Thought you might get a kick out of just of few funny things he does. First a little about him; he is on the spectrum; so he obsesses to the extreme with things. He hates school and people; doesn't like to be in crowded places; but he loves Lady Gaga He is getting out of his comfort zone to be in a crowd of people to watch your concert tonight in Seattle. Just a few things that we have been through in the last couple of weeks. We had a family vacation in Utah last week; he wanted to spend more time Utah his nana and papa; so he caught a ride with his sister and a friends mom (which he hated) and we picked him up in Idaho. We had the privilege of listening to Lady Gaga for 3.5 hours on the drive home. He convinced several friends and family members to watch the Monster Tour Concert with him. We have had to endure several days of looking at videos and pictures comparing you to other famous musicians and actresses. He doesn't know yet that his mother has showed us the Lady Gaga file that he has created with photos and images of you. He has even made a Christmas card for you. While on our vacation he wanted to shop for Lady Gaga apparel; that is all he talked about for 2 days; that he needed to go to Salt Lake to get clothes for the concert. We told him we would take him Saturday ( had a family reunion that day inSalt Lake); he insisted on calling the store to save him the clothes. He brought the clothes to the reunion; would take people to the car to show what he had bought but would not take them out of the car because he did not have a lint roller. He would have stayed to visit longer but he had to get for concert tonight in Seattle. He has been preparing all week for the concert tonight he told his mom he would mow the lawn Friday because he would be to busy getting ready Saturday for the concert (normally would never mess his schedule up; Saturday is mow day) now he is mowing the grass on Monday because there was just too much to do to get ready for the concert. He has been stressed out all week about getting to the concert on time; he informed his mom earlier this week that they had to be at the concert no later than 2 pm. He also informed his mom that her husband would need to dro them off (stressed about parking). He later informed his mom that they should probably get to the concert by 9 am. He woke his mom up this morning; angry that they did not go to Seattle last night so that he could have walked where you walked. He has spent all morning running the lint roller on the
Clothes he bought to wear to the concert tonight You will only be a spot on the stage to him from where he is sitting; he will probably watch the concert on the big screen. So if by some small chance that you might read this before the concert tonight could you please do a huge favor for his mama and papa ...give a shout out to him. (I would love to have seen his reaction).
Gotd's Nana & papa

Dear Lady Gaga: There are many lyrics about the "Live like your dying". I would like to suggest a lyric as to perhaps, the Epiphany's that come to you "Living while your dying" I have been maintaining a chronic diagnosis for 21 years, through now three
pharmaceutical prescribed "Cocktails"! "Until there's a cure" my diagnosis shall be my demise! There are some people who by "living while they were dying!" have changed the world for the better. i.e. Ryan White! Perhaps something like! "Living while your dying" by "Lady Gaga." You take the Hippocrates poison, that shall keep you, living while you are dying. And by Living while you are dying, you may find you will not abide those who choose Ignorance, Fear, Hate! As you are Living while you are dying, It may come to you that by living in the state love for all, you will have truly lived the miracle of life! So on and so on! Thank You: PS: I think perhaps because of the talent given to you, you give wonderful things to the world, through your voice and song's!

Hi there. I have always been a big fan. I am so sorry to hear about your fibromyalgia diagnosis. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia when I was 17 years old and am now 40 years old. I know how hard the feeling of always having aches and pains. Almost like you have the flu 24/7 along with pure exhaustion and not understanding why you are so tired. I am currently trying for disability as I can not keep a job and can't afford it. My suggestion is to try some low impact yoga or stretching. Maybe meditation too. That is what I'm trying. I have been on so many medications that have not worked and just hurt my stomach. I truly understand how hard it is to keep a smile on your face trying to hide how bad you feel. Just keep pushing. You can do it. I have been for 23 years and if I can do it then I believe you can too. Hang in there

I am listening to your song, Joanne. I was drawn to this song from the first time I heard it.My husband passed away in August, not expected. My heart beats fast, my tears flow, I ache all over, but this song allows me to have these feelings. I wasn't ready to let the angels have him, let him go to heaven..but that is what happened. Your words are a comfort to me, even though there is a sadness i the words. Thank you for this song. BTW..I am 69, my Ray was 72.

I am going to be 65 yrs old on July 4th. A few years I wrote you to see if I could be a little monster, I never heard back , I figured that you didn’t me, I quit listening to your music. I know you are a talented artist and I guess I’m too old now to be a little monster

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for speaking out on this topic. I have never have reached out to a celebrity, but I respect you as a musician, and in so many ways. I am an attorney in Ohio and was a probate/juvenile judge and when you spoke about this topic, I cried, because you hit the nail right on the head and I too have been through trauma. Thank you for being articulate and courageous, and I say this because you will make such a difference in so many peoples’ lives, like mine. Thank you for being an inspiration.
