Look Back on Lady Gaga's Monstrous Rise to Fame
Can you believe Lady Gaga is only 34 years old?! It seems as though the singer, actress, and artist has lived about nine lives already; born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, she hit the scene in 2008 with her single "Just Dance" and has since made a name for herself as an accomplished songwriter and high-profile performer. Her look and sound have gone from pop-art princess to fashion-forward fame monster, and in 2016, she stepped out in glamorous gowns while hitting the red carpet for award shows and taking home a Golden Globe for her performance in American Horror Story: Hotel.
Also that year, Gaga released her fifth studio album Joanne and performed at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. In 2019, she won her first Oscar and is now halfway to achieving EGOT status.
