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.

Dear Ms Gaga,
I am a 55 year old man that grew up with music from the 70s and 80s. One of the things I really miss about modern pop music is the lack of instruments, particularly Guitars and pianos. Also very few modern singer, save you, actually sing with their real voices. Not synthesized.
There are all sorts of Aging artists out there that can still play great instruments. I think it would be great if someone capture their talent in a new album or series of album before they are gone. These albums would be you singing and them playing. The songs could be new and/or remakes. Kind of Like what Carlos Santana did several years ago.
Artists to Consider:
• Billy Joel
• Eddie Van Halen
• Sammy Hagar
• Bruse Sprinsteen
• Joan Jett
• Eric Clapton
• George Thorogood
• Ted Nugent
• Bruce Springsteen
• Angus Young
• Elton John
• John Mellencamp
• Stevie Wonder
• Lenny Kravitz
• Pete Townshend
• Jimmy Page
• Keith Richards
• David Gilmour
• J. Geils
• Little Richard
• Many Others

I just wanted to say thank you. I lost my partner of 10yrs and laid her to rest yesterday. When I watched the film A star is born I could really relate and the last song never love again was so powerful. When she was in the hospital and I had to make the decision of turning the machines off as there was nothing else they could do, I played this song to her. I also played the song at her funeral because every word is so true and as said so so powerful. Thank you for being amazing lady with amazing voice. This song will live in my heart mind and body forever it truly made it so special for me. Sending love

Dear Lady Gaga,
You have always been my biggest source of inspiration, confidence, and knowing in the hard times to always find the light. You are my idol. You have taught me I am amazing for who I am, regardless if others don’t accept me. Although I’ve been having a hard time loving and accepting myself for who I am. Recently I found the love of my life. Although we aren’t together anymore, he still is and will always be the love of my life. We broke up because his mother said “If you don’t break up with him(referring to me even though I’m a woman), I’ll kick you out. Before that I had always felt like some trans freak and a lot of the time still do but when I listen to your music I remember I am more than just my sexuality, gender, or what I look like. It reminds me I am a soul with a body, It reminds me that I have to be myself in order to be happy and I can’t let what others say and do affect me. I imagine hugging you even if it’s for point one millisecond, it would by far be the best thing in my life! I came out as trans about a year and a half ago, I came out as gay in fifth grade(about five years ago). I’ve always listened to your music for as long as I can remember. I would walk in my moms heels and we would have dance parties to your music. I still have dance parties to your music. Although I was very young when I came out(both times), your songs and lyrics were the ones that helped me through coming out. I watched till it happens to you the performance, and at the time I cried but I didn’t know what it felt like being raped. Unfortunately now I do know what being raped is like. I’ve always found comfort in your music and knowing I’m NOT alone. Even if I think I’m alone I’m not. Although we may never meet I know your music will always be there for me. I’ve watched practically all your interviews, for hours and hours I’ll just be watching you, you talk and you perform. You have made it so I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I am forever grateful to you. Thank you so so so much!

Love you so much,
Ember
