It’s a decade since Lady Gaga burst into our lives with the release of "Just Dance," and showed us how to create a vivid identity for yourself, and never give a damn what others think. Gaga is wild and as spicy as it gets, and this is one of the reasons we love her so much. 
While most will not know who
 Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, her stage name is one people will never forget. 
We are going to write down 16 facts about this superstar, the further down you scroll, the less likely you will know the facts (the last 3 facts about her are so rare it's unlikely you know them).
If you think you know Stefani well enough, let's see how many facts you will find refreshing! 

1. While many know that the inspiration behind her name is Queen's hit song "Radio Ga Ga," but did you know how it came to be?

As it turns out, a mistake birthed her name. When her ex-boyfriend wanted to text her what song he wanted her to cover on her next gig, he wrote "Radio Gaga" but his phone autocorrected it to "Lady." It was love at first sight, and from that point on, she became known as Lady Gaga. 

2. Before she was a huge superstar, she used to be a successful songwriter, providing hit songs for singers like Fergie, Britney Spears, and The Pussycat Dolls.

In a way, this explains why her first singles felt so familiar. We already heard her songs, just not with her vocals. 

3. We know that she wore a meat dress, but did you know how heavy it was?

Incredibly, this "smelly" dress was weighing over 50 pounds. IT was actually very heavy to wear, and she recently said she almost passed out due to heat stroke caused by the effort it took to walk around in it.  

4. Her dream to become an actress was just as important to her as her music but she knew she had to pick just one because she could not focus on both.

Granny Gaga can see the lighter parts of her body, basically, her hair and skin. All things considered, this may be the best reason ever for not putting any pants.
