Inspired by glam rock legends like David Bowie as well as dance music divas like Grace Jones and Madonna, Lady Gaga (Stefani Germanotta) has become a pop icon since the release of her multi-platinum LPs The Fame and The Fame Monster. Known for her outrageous outfits and provocative stage performances, Gaga began her journey to greatness as a musical prodigy, studying piano at the New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts at the age of 17. Since her much-heralded duet with Elton John at the 52nd Grammy Awards, the five-time Grammy-winner has become one of the industry's top-selling artists with a devoted legion of fans (or “Little Monsters”) who follow her every move via Twitter. She will release her third album, ARTPOP, in early 2013 and make her silver screen debut in Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills later the same year.
