A well known pop idol, Lady Gaga is one of the best-selling artists in the world. From Manhattan, New York, she rose to fame with the release her debut album, The Fame in 2008. A greater hit than she could have ever imagined, it went on to spawn several classics including, Just Dance (Feat. Colby O’Donis, Poker Face, LoveGame, and Paparazzi. To date, over 15 million copies of the album have been sold worldwide.
Riding her initial momentum, the blonde issued a second album titled, Born This Way in 2011. A chart topper in the United States, its release was met with universal acclaim- hailed as one of the best albums of 2011 by Rolling Stone, it spawned a number of multi-platinum songs including, Bad Romance, Telephone (Feat. Beyonce), and Alejandro.
From there, she came out with Artpop in 2013. Though not as successful as her previous two albums per se, it still managed to grab the top spot on the Billboard 200. Supported by the ArtRave: The Artpop Ball Tour, the project’s track list included many hits such as G.U.Y., Venus, Aura, Gypsy, Applause, and Swine, to name a few.

The next year, Lady Gaga did something different- she tamed up with Tony Bennett for a joint album titled, Cheek to Cheek. Certified gold by the RIAA, it spawned a couple of charting singles, Anything Goes, and I Can’t Give You Anything But Love, the latter of which has been played over 3.6 million times on Youtube.

One of the most influential people of the past ten years according to Time Magazine, she has also earned dozens of industry awards throughout her career. Currently, her achievements include seven Billboard Music Awards, thirteen BMI Awards, twelve Clio Awards, six Grammy Awards, six International Dance Music Awards, among countess others. As of 2017, she has won over 200 titles, from close to 500 different nominations.
As expected from a world class artist, Lady Gaga has also embarked on several tours throughout her career.

Since August 2017, she has also been performing across North America and Europe for her Joanne World Tour.
What else has she been up to recently? On the music front, she recently dropped a new song titled, The Cure earlier this spring. Co-written with Paul Blair, Mark Nilan, Lukas Nelson, and Nick Monson, it received a considerable amount of positive attention despite a lack of promotion. In the US, the single eventually peaked at number 39 on the Billboard Top 200. Of course, she’s also on her concert tour as mentioned above.
As far as television appearances go, she has also appeared on screen a few times this year in, RuPaul’s Drag Race, The Last Leg, Extra, Gaga: Five Foot Two, and Entertainment Tonight. Going by what it says on IMDb, she’s currently also working on an upcoming documentary.
