“Every bit of me is devoted to love and art and I aspire to try to be a teacher to my young fans who just feel like I felt when I was younger. I just felt like a freak. I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m trying to Liberate them, I want to free them of their fears and make them feel that they can make their own space in the world.”
– Lady Gaga
Inner Keys to Success:
- TAKE REQUIRED STEPS TO LEARNING AND PERFECTING YOUR SKILLS: Gaga consistently perfected her skills to such a degree that reaching stardom was inevitable. She learned the piano by ear at just the age of 4, and she was already singing and dancing in front of the mirror at this young age. She was one of the rare early admissions to New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where she excelled in her studies. She eagerly fought for the opportunity to be writing for Def Jam Records for many famous bands and stars like Britney Spears which furthered her knowledge and talent in the music industry. Gaga even studied with Christina Aguilera’s vocal coach. She wanted her dream to be a reality so bad and was willing to learn everything she needed to.
- BE YOURSELF, BE CREATIVE: Lady Gaga loves to express her creativity via her music, and the way she lives her life. Lady Gaga is arguably one of the most artistic musicians of the modern day era and she is known for always leaving her fans in awe with her mind boggling performances by being true to her intuitiveness. In a powerful testament to her creative mind, she states “I am a walking piece of art every day, with my dreams and my ambitions forward at all times in an effort to inspire my fans to lead their life in that way.”
- THE SIMPLE & POWERFUL, NEVER GIVE UP: Lady Gaga withdrew from school in order to take on her passion whole-heartedly. To make ends meet, she took random jobs including a stint as a go-go dancer, but she kept her vision close. She gained a further sense of drive when she was dropped from Def Jam as a writer. This gave her the strength to excel to the level of excellence that many stars never reach. She became stronger and stronger, learning from her past setbacks. Lady Gaga is one of the most highly motivated and well fueled singers that constantly wants to express her perspectives of the world. “A record deal doesn’t make you an artist; you make yourself an artist.”
“I used to walk down the street like I was a f*****g star… I want people to walk around delusional about how great they can be – and then to fight so hard for it every day that the lie becomes the truth.”
– Lady Gaga
Little Known Success Fact:

“Born this Way’ is about being yourself, and loving who you are and being PROUD.” – Lady Gaga
