What Is Lady Gaga’s Personality Type? (You Tell Us!)

Laura’s avatar

When Stefani Germanotta stormed the music world more than a decade ago, she didn’t do it under her own name. Instead, she took on a persona: Lady Gaga, an outlandish figure with blunt-cut platinum hair, avant-garde outfits, and a seeming aversion to the status quo.

Gaga didn’t sound or look like the other pop stars of the era. Heck, she wasn’t like anyone. But she trusted that her artistic vision, however unusual, would make her a megastar. Her first album, after all, was titled The Fame.

Over the past decade, Lady Gaga has evolved and matured as an artist. Her talent and versatility have earned her a place among the top-selling musicians in history, and she’s received nine Grammy Awards and an Academy Award. Meanwhile, she’s used her profile to advocate for LGBT rights and raise awareness of mental health issues.
