Lady Gaga is renowned for her outrageous originality, challenging standard notions of pop, celebrity, femininity, and the power of the Internet. Turns out, however, the very name "Gaga" is second-hand, first coined by a performer who has been singing, provoking, dressing up in ridiculous outfits, and piling on the make-up longer than Gaga's been alive. Her name is Gloria Walz aka "Gaga" and she's an 81-year-old clown.
