Lady Gaga was born and raised in New York and her story seems to have been one of sudden success as she managed to get two hits from her first album, Just Dance and Poker Face, on Billboard in 2008. In 2018, she became one of the women highest paid in the music industry, mainly due to her performance in the film in “A Star is Born” (A Star is Born) alongside Bradley Cooper, and earned the Oscar for "Best Original Song" for the single "Shallow".
Currently, Celebrity Net Worth points out that the singer's net worth is around $320 million, with singing and songwriting as her primary sources of wealth. Much of the singer's fortune is tied up in real estate: a mansion worth over $23 million in Malibu and a second home in the Hollywood Hills worth over $5 million.
Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, Lady Gaga's given name, has studied music since she was just 4 years old and has been performing since she was 14. She studied for a year at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. The artist went on to earn more than 80 million dollars a year from her music, acting and sponsorships.
In addition to the stage and cinema, Lady Gaga also got partnerships with renowned makeup brands, such as MAC and Shiseido, in addition to a contract with the Italian fashion brand Versace. The actress and singer also launched perfume lines in 2012 and 2014 that were very successful.
Celebrity Net Worth also reports that the Born This Way Foundation is one of the ways the star is able to contribute both time and money to awareness issues about mental health and causes related to LGBTQIA+ groups. In 2020, Lady Gaga turned to Global Citizen's “Together at Home” project to produce virtual shows for people who were in confinement due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event raised 130 million dollars that were used by the World Health Organization to help in efforts to combat the problems caused by the coronavirus.
