Ahhh, Lady Gaga. We all love her. She’s an icon of pop, art, and an activist for all things that push the boundaries.

Throughout her years of stardom, the world has learned a lot about her. For example, you probably know her full name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. You probably also know that she’s of Italian heritage and an activist for fibromyalgia.

But what are some things you didn’t know?

Here are five rare facts about Lady Gaga!

1. Lady Gaga is a classically trained musician.

Lady Gaga attended the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University for two years to study music. She didn’t finish her degree so that she had more time to pursue her music career. Additionally, when she was younger, she took voice lessons from the same coach as Christina Aguilera!

2. Her acting career started way before “A Star Is Born.”

While Gaga’s performance in “A Star Is Born” is thought by many to be her debut into the acting world, she actually appeared in an episode of “The Sopranos” when she was only 15!

3. After being confused with a superstar, Lady Gaga dyed her hair blonde!

Lady Gaga was originally a brunette, but she regularly got mixed up with icon Amy Winehouse. She defined her look to help differentiate herself from Amy. However, Gaga was flattered by the comparison.

4. She’s an honorary member of Elton John’s family.

Elton John and his partner David Furnish have two children. Lady Gaga is the godmother of both kiddos!

5. If she wasn’t a singer, Lady Gaga knew she wanted to be a combat journalist.

Lady Gaga started training to be a singer from a young age, but she’s a multi-passionate person. If she didn’t go into the musical arts, she would’ve channeled her creativity into journalism.

What a true icon! Lady Gaga is a complex, thoughtful, and eccentric performer with a fascinating background. I hope you learned a new fact or two to help you become an even better Little Monster!
