Lady Gaga collectibles
Lady Gaga, sometimes spelt ‘GaGa’ (born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, 28th March 1986 in New York City), is a singer, songwriter and music celebrity.
Germanotta rose to public notoriety with her 2008 debut album, The Fame, and hit singles including Bad Romance and Telephone. Here influences include David Bowie and Queen.
Lady Gaga was quoted as saying in a 2009 article by The Times of London:
“In this industry, you get a lot of stylists and producers thrown at you, but this is my own creative team, modelled on Warhol's Factory. Everyone is under 26 and we do everything together."
A never-released demo CD of early records by Stefani Germanotta was to be included in an auction held by Gotta Have It! in 6th-15th October 2009. According to reports, the seller was her first manager Bob Leone.
The demo CD was set to appear alongside early signatures by former Beatles members John Lennon and Paul McCartney. However, it was withdrawn by her management prior to the sale.
