Lady Gaga had the perfect response for Donald Trump after he attacked her for supporting his rival Joe Biden in the upcoming election.
It was pretty savage if I do say so myself…
But the singer was not going to just sit and take it.
And it was pretty savage if we do say so ourselves.
Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta in 1986, in New York City, the singer has gone on to rise in the ranks of the celebrity world as one of the most unconventional and unique artists of this generation.
It was clear she was always destined for a career in the music industry. Check out this adorable video of baby Gaga playing the piano!
Before curating the “Lady Gaga image,” a determined young Stefani would haul her keyboard around bar upon bar trying to get noticed in the industry.
After ditching college to manage her own career, Gaga well and truly got stuck in – transforming herself from Stefani to the global sensation-to-be… Lady Gaga.
Her over-the-top fashion sense, and sheer grit, quickly gained attention and she signed with Akon and Interscope Records to work on her debut album – released in 2008.
The star made her mainstream breakthrough with her grammy-nominated single “Just Dance,” which propelled her to commercial and musical stardom.
Though she quickly became known for something other than her music…
Her eccentric, outlandish fashion sense became a huge part of her identity and something that she quickly started being known for.
And you have to admit, you can’t blame people. After all, even her street-style ensembles were full-blown works of art.
“Casual” and “paired-back” are clearly foreign concepts to the pop powerhouse – and that’s what makes her so great. It’s boring to be conventional.
“I used to try to wrap my brain as heavy as I could around what I could do to…Instead of being shocking (I used to say “shock art” or “performance art”), I would use the word “bemuse,” which is basically putting the audience in a state of confusion where they can’t look away. I used to just go, ‘What am I going to do next to get people’s attention?’,” she explained to Oprah.
You only have to look at likes of the meat dress (which Gaga says she didn’t actually think was that jaw-dropping) to understand her wacky artistic visions.
She is always reinventing herself; whether it’s changing her hair, make-up, or wearing 10-inch heels, no one can pull off memorable looks quite like Gaga.
It seems like everyone knows the words to anthems like “Born This Way,” “Edge of Glory,” and “Poker Face”.
There’s no doubt that she reigned supreme in the ’10s music scene.
Album’s such as 2013’s ARTPOP and 2016’s stripped-back Joanne haven’t had the same sucess as their former chart-topping precessdors.
But her long-anticipated Superbowl half-time show performance (aka one of the biggest and sought after gigs you can land) in 2017, reignited some popularity with such tracks.
The star has many strings to her bow and has crafted an impressive acting career for herself.
For example, the star featured in 2013’s Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For the following year.
She also notably starred in American Horror Story: Hotel as the countess – a role which earned her a Golden Globe Award.
But she landed her leading big-screen role last year in Bradley Cooper’s remake of A Star Is Born.
Her role as an aspiring singer, Ally Maine, earnt her significant critical acclaim, including an Oscar for her original song on the movie’s soundtrack, “Shallow.”
While at first controversial, the casting choice of Gaga for the movie turned out to be excellent, and for sure is one of the main reasons the film has been so successful.
The star has turned full-blown beauty mogul – launching her inclusive beauty brand, Haus Labs, back in July.
“I felt that I had the platform and had built the foundation around what I stand for so that when this company came out, it would be a rebellion in a kind way against the status quo of beauty as it is today, which is in many ways on social media, a competition. It’s a beauty pageant in a lot of ways,” the star explained during her cover story for Elle Magazine.
“This company exists in an influential space in culture where we say, ‘Our Haus. Your Rules.’ And everyone is welcome—all gender identities.”
Coming from her own past of bullying, Gaga is extremely passionate about raising awareness around mental health and empowering youth.
The star co-founded the Born This Way Foundation with her mother in 2011. The non-profit aims to create a “kinder” world by improving the understanding of mental wellbeing, creating safe spaces for youth and mental health first aid in educational establishments.
The foundation has curated a number of programs including #BeKind21 – inspired by the idea that habits are formed by repeating an activity for 21 consecutive days. The launch of #BeKind21 in 2018 aimed to encourage the public to build a habit of kindness.
Most recently, the organization implemented a teen mental health first aid program in partnership with the National Council for Behavioral Health. This aims to provide in-person training to “teach high school students about common mental health challenges and what they can do to support their own mental health and help a friend who is struggling.”
She’s certainly made her mark on the world.
Recently, she got into a little altercation with the current President of the United States that resulted in her getting heated on Twitter.
Donald Trump tweeted this upon hearing she had given her support to his rival.
She also took to the social media platform to make sure she addressed the president, along with another fellow Republican called Tim Murtaugh, in a simple, yet very effective tweet.
No matter whose side you’re on, make sure you go out to vote!
