Before the world was going Gaga for her, this ”lady” was known as Stefani Germanotta and at the age of four was already playing the piano.
Nicknamed ‚”The Germ”, she was one of the more popular girls attending the exclusive Convent of the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic school in New York City.
Described as a diligent student, Stefi picked singing over boys, participated in the choir and played her piano every chance she got.
By her senior year, she was already performing at open mic nights but still made time to attend her High School Ball and goof around with pals.
At eighteen years old, her dream was to headline at Madison Square Garden and in 2011 Lady Gaga did just that.
She’s even got her own fragrance out appropriately named…Fame.
Just a day after turning Barcelona into ‘barf-e-lona’ (throwing up three times during her concert in Barcelona, Spain)…Lady Gaga still looked a little sick sick in London at the launch of her new perfume, Lady Gaga Fame.
Though she managed to put somewhat of a smile on her face, the Mother Monster had that queasy look going on and cradled her tummy as if it still felt icky.
That explains why she not only arrived an hour late to the big event (by horse and carriage of course) but practically skipped the carpet all together, hardly striking a pose for her fans and photographers.
The fact that she showed up though wasn’t enough and the fans apparently thanked her with a few boo’s.
Yes, the show must go on but even celebrities need to call in sick every once in a while.
If it’s money and women you want to talk about…then you’ve come to the right place.
And the woman with the most money? Oprah.
That’s right, the Queen of daytime TV topped the Forbes’ Highest Paid Women list which tracked celebrity earnings between May 2011 and May 2012. So what’d she rake in? Try a cool $165 million. That’s head and shoulders above the number 2 ranked Britney Spears.
But don’t feel bad for Britney. She earned an estimated $58 million, mostly from touring and album sales. Her $15 million contract with X Factor was signed after the cut-off, so that’ll be applied to next year.
Taylor Swift came in at number 3 with $57 million in earnings, also from tours and album sales. But at 22-years-old, she’s the youngest woman on the list which in our opinion gives her supreme bragging rights.
