American pop singer Lady Gaga is celebrating her 35th birthday on March 28. The singer who has been compared to Madonna and Donatella Versace is proved that global fame comes with hard work and perseverance.
Along with the song-making talent, the singer is hit headlines for her quirky fashion sense. Be it Met Gala or Cannes Film Festival, Gaga ace every look she carries.
Gaga who was born on March 28 in Manhattan, New York, began playing the piano at age four. She took piano lessons and practiced through her childhood. Lady Gaga is not only an accomplished singer but a songwriter, a businesswoman, and an Academy award-winning actor as well.
On the occasion of Lady Gaga’s 35th birthday, here is the list of songs by the American singer you must listen:
While 2008’s debut album The Fame teased the idea of Gaga the megastar, 2009’s eight-track spin-off The Fame Monster cemented it. As its only conventional ballad, Speechless sticks out like a sore thumb.
Retro, Dance, Freak:
Included on international editions of The Fame, this Prince-inspired strut feels like a sketch that never develops past its title.
The famous video, which has been viewed more than one billion times on YouTube, swept the VMAs, claiming seven awards including Video of the Year. That makes “Bad Romance” the second most awarded video in VMA history, behind only Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer,” which won nine times in 1987.
‘Paparazzi’ was a huge summer hit, landing Gaga her third top five hit in the UK (after two Number Ones), top 10 spots across the globe and is certified 3x platinum in the US.
This unstoppable mega-hit was the best-selling single of 2009, was loved by critics, earned aGrammy, went Number One internationally and is one of the best-selling singles of all time, selling over 14 million.
Her breakthrough hit reached number-one on the Hot 100, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording and has been certified nine-times platinum.
Born This Way:
Born This Way represented Gaga’s first real misstep in the eyes of the public. As it was cravenly written to be a plain-speaking, empowering anthem, any accusations of a lack of nuance seem to miss the point.
