This mini bio features Lady Gaga, a classically trained composer and singer, who studied at NYU's prestigious Tisch School of Arts. Her performance style has been described as "the ultimate lo-fidelity burlesque act." Lady Gaga's celebrity garners her as much attention as her music, as she is notorious for her red-carpet outfits, including a plastic bubble dress and a high-cut leotard with stiletto heels. The persona she has cultivated in the media may be over the top, but her record and album sales are over the top as well. Gaga's albums have been certified multi-platinum in sixteen countries, and she continually tops the Billboard, SoundScan, and iTunes charts.
