 National – Amber Communications Group, Inc.’s imprint Colossus Books has published LADY GAGA: BORN TO BE FREE—An Unauthorized Biography by Jake Brown.

 This is the true, fascinating and fairytale story of Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, from childhood, to her ascension to the top of the music charts as an international phenomenon known as Lady Gaga. 

Born on March 28, 1986 in Yonkers, New York, to Cynthia and Joseph Germanotta,  Lady Gaga is a pop artist and cultural icon whose antics, onstage and in video, and wild fashions have earned her attention worldwide. Her hits, Bad RomancePoker Face and Love Game have sold millions of copies.

With never before seen photos and interviews that bring you deep into the heart and soul of this extraordinary talent, destined to rule the world, author Jake Brown, will take you on a journey beginning in Yonkers, New York, crisscrossing throughout the United States and traversing around the world.

Gaga rose to prominence with her August 2008 debut album, The Fame, which was a critical and commercial success. The record included the international number-one tracks “Just Dance” and “Poker Face”. In November 2009, her extended play, The Fame Monster, was released to a similar reception, and produced the hit singles “Bad Romance”, “Telephone”, and “Alejandro”.

 Gaga’s second studio album, Born This Way, was released in May 2011 and topped albums charts in most major markets and countries.  It was preceded by the chart-topping songs “Born This Way”, “Judas”, and “The Edge of Glory”.

After taking a sabbatical for a hip injury and the cancellation of the remaining dates of the Born This Way Ball Tour, Gaga’s third album Artpop was released in November 2013 and became her second number one album in the US.  Artpop was preceded by singles “Applause” and “Do What U Want”.

Lady Gaga is her generation’s Madonna.  Hailed as “the first true millennial superstar” by Billboard, who credited the pop superstar as “an artist who specialized in re-purposing the past particularly the ‘80s for present use, creating sustainable pop for a digital world.”  “Gaga mastered, the constant connection of the internet era, generating countless mini sensations through her style, her videos, and her music, cultivating a devoted audience.”

 Gaga learned to play the piano by the age of 4.  At the age of 11, she was accepted to the Juilliard School in Manhattan, but instead attended a private Catholic school in the city.  She continued studying music and performing, writing her first piano ballad at the age of 13, and she held her first performance in a New York nightclub at the age of 14.

A few years later, Gaga was granted early admission to New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts—she was one of only 20 students in the world to receive the honor of early acceptance.  While there, she studied music and worked on her songwriting skills.  She later withdrew from school to find creative inspiration. To make ends meet, she took three jobs, including a stint as a go-go dancer, while she honed her performance-art act.

 In 2007, at the age of 20, Gaga began to work at Interscope Records as a songwriter for other artists on the label, including Britney Spears, New Kids on the Block, and The Pussycat Dolls until being discovered by African American, R&B singer, Akon, who signed her to his label under the Interscope umbrella, Kon Live.

Through 2007 and 2008, Gaga wrote and recorded her debut album, The Fame. The record received positive reviews and popular success, and the single “Poker Face” topped charts in almost every category, in almost every country.

In authenticating Lady Gaga’s heir apparent as her generation’s Queen of Pop, Vanity Fair reminded its readers that in the mere four years that she has had a recording contract, she had become a global sensation, a superstar.

Lady Gaga is recognized for her flamboyant, diverse, and outre contributions to the music industry through her fashion, performances, and music videos.  She had sold an estimated 26 million albums and 127 million singles worldwide and her singles are some of the best-selling worldwide.  Her achievements include five Grammy Awards and 13 MTV Video Music Awards.

Gaga has consecutively appeared on Billboard Magazine’s Artists of the Year, ranked fourth in VH1’s list of 100 Greatest Women in Music, is the fourth best selling digital singles artist in US, according to RIAA;  is regularly placed on lists composed by Forbes magazine, including The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women from 2010 to 2013, and was named one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine.

LADY GAGA: BORN TO BE FREE—An Unauthorized Biography  chapters include: “Gaga from Birth”, “76 Stanton Street”, “F.A.M.E”, “Little Monsters”, “The Fame Monster E.P.”, “Born This Way”, “Gaga Takes Over the World”, “Life as a Fashion Show”, “ARTPOP” and “2014 and Beyond”.

LADY GAGA: BORN TO BE FREE—An Unauthorized Biography  was written by Nashville-based music biographer Jake Brown who has published thirty five books, including other Colossus Books titles: Kanye West : The Rise of Kanye’ West and the Chicago Rap Scene (The Early Years);   Jay Z and the Roc-A-Fella Record Dynasty;   Prince: In the Studio;   Dr. Dre: In the Studio;   Suge Knight: The Rise, Fall and Rise of Death Row Records;   50 Cent: No Holds Barred;   Biggie Smalls: Ready to Die;   Tupac: In the Studio;  as well as titles on R.
