Etymology for experts: Where does the pseudonym "Lady Gaga" come from?
"Every day when Stef [Lady Gaga] entered the studio, I started singing 'Radio Ga Ga' [by Queen] instead of saying 'Hello'. 'Lady Gaga' was actually a mishap. I typed 'Radio Ga Ga' in an SMS and it auto-corrected, somehow turning 'Radio' into 'Lady'. She replied: 'This is it.' From this day on, she has been Lady Gaga."
