In the late 2000s, the world went goo goo for GaGa. Lady GaGa's 2008 debut album "The Fame" received rave reviews and featured hits "Poker Face" and "Just Dance". Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, GaGa is known for her eccentric behavior and attire. In 2011, she arrived to the Grammys being carried in a giant egg. Outside of her numerous pop hits, GaGa is also known as a strong advocate for LGBT rights and has admitted to being bisexual. GaGa's first two albums have sold over 23 million copies worldwide.
Her stage name, ''Lady Gaga,'' comes from the Queen song ''Radio Gaga,'' which her previous manager dubbed her.
Lady Gaga won three awards at the 53rd Grammy Awards on February 13, 2011. She won Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Best Short Form Music Video and Best Pop Vocal Performance. Gaga performed her single ''Born This Way'' after emerging from a giant plastic egg.
Gaga released the single ''Born This Way'' on February 11, 2011. The song just happened to be the 1,000th song ever to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
