Tim Mosenfelder/Getty 图片 After her birthday on Monday, Lady Gaga is a quarter of a century old. No doubt she'll celebrate in a Gaga-ian fashion, but for now her 粉丝 (aka "Little Monsters") are most interested in knowing her real name.
Over the past 24 hours, Web searches for "lady gaga real name" and "what is lady gaga's real name" have both spiked into the stratosphere. For the record, her 给 name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta.
Gaga earned her nickname in an unusual way: According to producer Rob Fusari, "(Lady Gaga) was actually a glitch; I typed 'Radio Ga Ga' in a text and it did an autocorrect so somehow 'Radio' got changed to 'Lady.' She texted me back, 'That's it.' After that day, she was Lady Gaga."
