Other than Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta and Lady Gaga, the singer has quite a few other names she goes by. Among her variety of nicknames, you can find Mother Monster, Loop, Gagaloo, Little Mermaid, and Rabbit Teeth.
We’re not entirely sure if she likes being called by that last one, though. We’d double-check with her assistant before calling her that.
Gaga shared that she used to go crazy for "My Little Pony" toys. According to the Lady, she was totally obsessed with the notion of a creature born with something magical in them, making them a misfit in a world of stallions.
We can totally relate. Also, speaking of kids' stuff – Gaga's favorite cartoon character is Bugs Bunny. We can relate to that, too.
With a Little Help from Her Friend
Before officially becoming a pop star, Gaga had her period of writing for other famous artists. But what really pushed her out of that phase and encouraged her to focus on her own music? Believe it or not, it was a talk she had with a musician friend, perhaps you've heard of him, his name is Akon.
He convinced her to take her music career more seriously, and, well, we think it worked. Luckily enough, Gaga has good friends in her life. If it wasn't for Akon, who knows who would receive all the awards instead of her?
A Musical Fortune Teller
Is Lady Gaga a fortune teller or just a musical trendsetter? Probably a little bit of both. In 2007, the people at Gaga's music label were concerned about her music being too underground for most people and were worried this might get in between her and widespread commercial success.
Gaga was certain that her style was the next big thing in mainstream music and wouldn't agree to change it. It turned out that she was right.
We've heard quite a lot of versions regarding the origin of the name Lady Gaga, and we're pretty sure this one is mostly fictitious, but we'll leave it to you to judge. Even if this is just a fable, we love the link to Queen.
One version says that Gaga's producer texted her the name of the Queen song "Radio Ga Ga," but his phone autocorrected "Radio" to "Lady" – and that's how the name came to be. True or false? You decide.
