"Who Is Lady GaGa?"
She is 23---New Yorker--Stefani Germanotta was accepted to Juilliard at 11 years old but did not start and later attended the NYU Tisch School of the Arts at 17. She has played piano since 4 and has a long background of composition, writing her first ballad at 13. She will win a number of Grammies on January 31st---this I am certain Her name comes from friends who called her very "gaga" like the Queen song: "Radio Gaga." She , in my opinion, is 1000% more talented than Madonna--her obvious influences are Bowie, Grace Jones, M. Jackson as well as Madonna. Along with Space Cowboy, Jeremy Amelin and a few other producers, she is at the forefront of the contemporary resurrection of synthesizer based dance music.
