Before Lady Gaga was who she is today, she attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She dropped out in her second year to pursue her music career, and was signed to Def Jam Records in 2006 only to be dropped by the label three months later. After working on her onstage persona for awhile she was signed to an imprint of Interscope. She also signed a music publishing deal with Sony and started writing songs forBritney Spears, Fergie, and the Pussycat Dolls.
After working for a long time on her debut album, The Fame was finally released in 2008. Her first two singles “Just Dance” and “Poker Face” were both sleeper hits, with the latter earning her a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. Lady Gaga has since gone on to headline four world tours, and win countless awards for her music.
