(born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) was born on March 28, 1986
at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, New York.
She is better known as her stage name,
which she started using in 2007. She usually prefer
to be called Gaga instead of simply just Lady or the full nickname.
Gaga was raised Roman Catholic. From age eleven she
attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart, a private
all-girls Roman Catholic school on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
She described her academic life in high
school as "very dedicated, very studious, very
disciplined" but also "a bit insecure": "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.
