Who hasn't heard Lady Gaga's songs in 2019? Believe it or not, before she became famous, Stefani Germanotta had had a hard time from her college classmates. The first woman in history to win Oscar, BAFTA, Grammy, and Golden Globe in the same year heard haters say she'd never make it. Turns out, at the beginning of her career some haters from college created a Facebook group called “Stefani Germanotta, you will never be famous.” As of recent, someone has unearthed this tiny secret community, and the Typical Student team just couldn't refrain from sharing the irony of it all.
Who Discovered Facebook Group Hating On Lady Gaga?
Lauren Bohn was the one who spotted the Facebook group while she was a freshman at NYC. It didn't take her long before she brought it to media’s attention in 2016 sharing her thoughts on Facebook: "When I was a freshman at NYU and Facebook was only a year old and people created/joined groups like "I have dimples, f*** me" and “Fake ID, please!"
The Facebook group started by Lady Gaga's haters was named "Stefani Germanotta, you will never be famous." Back then, Stefani was a young 18-year-old NYU student who sang and played piano at local restaurants and bars. The group contained malicious comments and accusations about Stefani being an "attention-whore."
Lady Gaga has had a tough college experience in terms of bullying. Being the Convent of Sacred Heart, an Upper East Side Catholic private school enrollee, Stefani experienced a lot of bullying from her classmates. Still, through ups and downs, Lady Gaga managed to become a world-famous singer and actress. In total, Lady Gaga has been nominated for 24 Grammys and won 9. Finally, Lady Gaga won an Oscar for her hit and OST song ‘Shallow’ to 2018 motion picture "A Star Is Born."
