- She co-wrote songs for Jenifer Lopez, Fergie, Pussycat Dolls, and New Kids On The Block after signing with Interscope Records and happened to converse with Akon, who motivated her to pursue her own music.
- In August 2012, Lady Gaga released her official perfume known as “Fame,” the base of which was her own blood as well as semen.
- “Born This Way,” her mega-hit single which sold over 1 million copies on iTunes in under six days, was written in just 10 minutes. You can find her songs all over Youtube with billions of views along with GIFs and MEMEs on Tiktok, Twitter, and Facebook.
