Transcript of Lady Gaga, Queen B

Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne
Angelina Germanotta March 28th 1986 She began performing in the rock music scene of New York City's Lower East Side. She soon signed with Streamline Records, an imprint of Interscope Records, upon its establishment in 2007. During her early time at Interscope, she worked as a songwriter for fellow label artists and captured the attention of Akon, who recognized her vocal abilities, and had her also sign to his own label, Kon Live Distribution. Its first two singles, "Just Dance" and "Poker Face", co-written and co-produced with RedOne, became international number-one hits, topping the Hot 100 in the United States as well as other countries. The album later earned a total of six Grammy Award nominations and won awards for Best Electronic/Dance Album and Best Dance Recording. In early 2009, after having opened for New Kids on the Block and the Pussycat Dolls, she embarked on her first headlining tour, The Fame Ball Tour. By the fourth quarter of 2009 she had released her second studio album The Fame Monster, with the global chart-topping lead single "Bad Romance", as well as having embarked on her second headlining tour of the year, The Monster Ball Tour. Lady Gaga is inspired by glam rock musicians such as David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, as well as pop music artists such as Madonna and Michael Jackson. She has also stated fashion is a source of inspiration for her songwriting and performances. To date, she has sold over ten million albums and over thirty-five million singles worldwide the eldest child of Italian American parents Joseph and Cynthia Germanotta (née Bissett), in New York City Playing piano by ear from the age of 4, she went on to write her first piano ballad at 13 and began performing at open mic nights by age 14 She described her academic life in high school as "very dedicated, very studious, very disciplined" but also "a bit insecure" as she told in an interview "I used to get made fun of for being either too provocative or too eccentric, so I started to tone it down. I didn’t fit in, and I felt like a freak." At age 17, Germanotta gained early admission to the New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. "Once you learn how to think about art, you can teach yourself," “I left my entire family, got the cheapest apartment I could find, and ate shit until somebody would listen” The singer was in the process of trying to come up with a stage name, when she received a text message from Fusari that read "Lady Gaga" Every day, when Stef came to the studio, instead of saying hello, I would start singing 'Radio Ga Ga.' That was her entrance song. [Lady Gaga] was actually a glitch; I typed 'Radio Ga Ga' in a text and it did an autocorrect so somehow 'Radio' got changed to 'Lady'. She texted me back, "That's it." After that day, she was Lady Gaga. She’s like, "Don’t ever call me Stefani again."Rob Fusari Albums:

incorporated diverse and innovative styles
including pregressive rock and even funk. the release of Sheer Heart Attack (1974) and A Night at the Opera (1975) gained the band international success, both critically and commercially. The group's roots can be traced back to the demise of the band Smile, of which May and Taylor were part. They were joined by a Farrokh Bulsara who changed the band's name to Queen, and his own to Freddie Mercury, and adopted the role of lead vocalist In 1987, Mercury was diagnosed HIV positive and in 1991 died of bronchopneumonia, a complication of AIDS.
Deacon's retirement followed in 1997.
Since then, May and Taylor have infrequently performed together at special events and programmes.
Between 2004 and 2009 the duo collaborated with Paul Rodgers under the name Queen + Paul Rodgers. The band has released a total of 18 number one albums, 18 number one singles, and 10 number one DVDs worldwide making them one of the world's best-selling music artists. In modern surveys Queen has been described as giving the greatest live performance ever, producing the greatest single in history, and being the best British band of all time. They have been honoured with seven Ivor Novello awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 Her debut album, The Fame, was released on August 19, 2008. In addition to receiving generally positive reviews, it reached number-one in Canada, Austria, Germany, and Ireland and topped the Billboard Top Electronic Albums chart.
