“Stop feeding me bullshit. Tell me the truth.”
—Lady Gaga, 2009

—Lady Gaga, 2010

I cannot deny what a force this rising star performer is, however…at the age of 24…I have to think a biography is a tad premature!

New to the Lower East Side, Stefani was making quite the impression: One of her neighbors at 176 Stanton St. says that, not long after he moved in, his sister asked him if he knew “there was a prostitute that lives in the building.”
Her neighbor was totally flummoxed; Stanton Street, like the bulk of the Lower East Side, was now mainly inhabited by young scenesters and professionals. “I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ She said, ‘I saw this girl stumbling up the stairs at 4 a.m., wearing, like, nothing, and she was drunk.’ And I just remember thinking, ‘Oh, great.
