The 'You & I' singer's emerging years as a pop artist are revealing in an exciting new biography.
Lady Gaga's early pop days are to be explored in a new memoir by her longtime friend Brendan Jay Sullivan.
Fans of the 'Marry The Night' singer will get to find out what their idol was like before all her fame and fortune, in a brand new biography called Rivington Was Ours: Lady Gaga, The Lower East Side And The Prime Of Our Lives.
DJ and close friend of Gaga's Brendan has penned the book to tell fans what she was like before hitting the big time, during her days playing clubs in New York City and struggling to find a record deal.
"The under-age girl looked a little lost, even her own boyfriend didn't have time for her," Brendan writes of his first counter with a 20 year-old Gaga, then known by her birth name Stefani Germanotta, according to the New York Post.
The book also goes into detail about Lady Gaga's relationship with then boyfriend Luc Carl, who Brendan claims the future pop star was always trying to impress, as well as her decision to go from brunette to platinum blonde.
Brendan describes the pop star as having an "innate social intelligence that made her approachable to everyone" as well as being able to "mirror those around her".
