One of the things that the film A Star is Born has taught us is that nobody becomes great without going through some sort of adversity. And that story from Lady Gaga’s personal life proves it even more. When she was only beginning her career, her haters - her university peers - created a Facebook group called “Stefani Germanotta, you will never be famous.” People have recently discovered this secret little community and immediately fell in love with its irony.


Lady Gaga’s college experience was not the first time she experienced severe bullying. Her parents enrolled her at Convent of Sacred Heart, an Upper East Side Catholic private school, where she had got her first taste of how cruel young people could be. From then on it didn’t stop.


What does not kill you makes you stronger, and in spite of her naysayers, she has always had insurmountable drive. At the age of eleven, she started voice lessons with Don Lawrence, Christina Aguilera’s singing coach, who she continued with even as her career took off. Apart from singing, she learned how to play the piano and took acting classes – both skills which would later lead to her pivotal Oscar moment.


Focused on her music career, Gaga enrolled at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, but always the risk-taker she dropped out not long eager to begin her real-world musician experience.


At 19-years-old the star thought perhaps she had found her big break when Def Jam records signed her, but it wasn’t to be. Three months into the deal the label informed her that she just was not for them. As usual, she stayed determined. In 2008 her boyfriend at the time Rob Fusari brought Gaga to Interscope records as a songwriter and from there a star was born. She wrote hits for famous artists such as Fergie, the Pussycat Dolls and Britney Spears. While at the label Gaga recorded a reference vocal for one of her songs the stars aligned and Akon heard the demo and signed her.


Through let-downs, bullies, and rejections Lady Gaga has become a renowned singer and actress. She has been nominated for 24 Grammys and won nine of them. In 2018 she made her grand acting debut in A Star Is Born and won an Oscar for her billboard topping hit and soundtrack song ‘Shallow.’


In her Oscars acceptance speech Lady Gaga had some inspiring words for all the struggling artists out there who identify with her: “If you are at home, and you’re sitting on your couch, and you’re watching this right now, all I have to say is that this is hard work. I’ve worked hard for a long time, and it’s not about, you know…it’s not about winning. But what it’s about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it. There’s a discipline for passion. And it’s not about how many times you get rejected, or you fall down, or you’re beaten up. It’s about how many times you stand up and are brave, and you keep on going.”
