Many words have been used to describe her style, but the word “outrageous” has likely been the most common. Whether it’s her hair color or her infamous “meat dress,” Lady Gaga always manages to push the envelope further than anyone else. With the tremendous success that she has had over the years, people are asking, “What is Lady Gaga’s net worth?”. Well, it’s a whopping $225.0 million and the money is still rolling in as her albums, singles, and live tours continue to sell out. For all the details on Lady Gaga’s music, career, love life, and more, we’re bringing you a brief Lady Gaga wiki!

Fantastic Debut

Lady Gaga is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She first started out in theater, acting in her high school plays. She studied at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, but dropped out to begin her career in music. Lady Gaga started out by writing songs for other major pop artists, until singer Akon noticed her incredible singing ability. Soon, she was signed up by Interscope Records and she started working on her debut album. Lady Gaga’s first album, The Fame was released in 2008, and it was a monster success. It sold millions and received critical acclaim, as well. Two of her singles, “Just Dance” and “Poker Face” were smash hits and seemed to be mandatory tracks played in all dance clubs. The next year she released an EP titled The Fame Monster and it was another huge success for Gaga. Three of her singles, “Bad Romance,” “Telephone,” and “Alejandro” became best-selling singles.

Hits Galore

Her subsequent albums like Born This Way and Artpop also sold millions of copies and produced hit singles like, “Born This Way,” “Judas,” and “The Edge of Glory.” The album, Artpop produced hit singles like, “Applause” and “Do What U Want.” Then, Lady Gaga worked with the legendary singer, Tony Bennett and released the jazz album, Cheek to Cheek. The album received rave reviews and did very well commercially, as well. Critics unanimously called it “Lady Gaga’s best effort to date.” Lady Gaga started acting, as well and she appeared in movies like, Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. She also appeared on TV shows like Saturday Night Live, The Muppet Show and American Horror Story.

The Split

In February 2015, Lady Gaga got engaged to Taylor Kinney. Kinney is not Lady Gaga’s husband because they never actually got married, even though they had been together for quite a while. The latest reports suggest that Lady Gaga and Kinney split after being together for five years. Their long distance relationship was under heavy strain because of Lady Gaga’s constant touring and work pressures. After the split earlier this year, Lady Gaga broke her silence in a statement released on her her Instagram saying, “Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.” How heartbreaking. Lady Gaga, who is only 30 years of age, has already had so many achievements and attained such spectacular success. Who knows, in the future they may get back together again!

Her Own Way

Lady Gaga’s most recent single, “Million Reasons” is a mature effort. It’s a little different from her usual style, as she is clearly reflecting on her relationships and her past. Maybe it’s because she has crossed the significant “30 years- old” milestone? Lady Gaga has a great opportunity now to make the music that she wants. Gone are the days when radio would refuse to play her songs. Today, the “Born This Way” singer can put out any kind of music she wants. She’s already proven she’s got the skills—and now, the world is her stage.
