20 Pictures Of Lady Gaga Before She Was Lady Gaga
Have you ever wondered what famous people did or looked like before they were famous? Here are 20 pictures of Lady Gaga, long before she was Lady Gaga, back when she was still Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta.
Lady GaGa was born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta in Yonkers, New York in 1986. Prior to becoming famous, Germanotta performed at Ultraviolet Live, New York University’s annual talent show. The first song she performed was “Captivated,” the second, “Electric Kiss.” Germanotta placed third in the competition. She began her career at age 19, while still performing under her birth name. She was signed by Def Jam records that year, but was dropped by them after three months without recording for the label. In 2007, she began performing as Lady Gaga in performance art shows on the Manhattan club scene and began to get noticed. Akon took notice and signed her to his label Kon Live in association with Interscope Records, where she worked as a songwriter, while planning her recording career. Gaga released a single “Just Dance,” in April, 2008 and an album The Fame in August. “Just Dance” became a dance club hit before debuting on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in August, and eventually reaching number one in January, 2009. Her following single, “Poker Face” was an even bigger hit, quickly reaching number one on charts in the United States and internationally.
