Ally's Struggles Were Gaga's Struggles in the Music Industry
Lady Gaga has come a long way since her first album, The Fame, debuted in 2008. From world tours and collaborating with Tony Bennett on the jazz standards album Cheek to Cheek to acting on television in American Horror Story, she's diversified her career in ways many other artists have not.
Gaga mentions that at the beginning, before she got a record deal, she felt very much like Ally did and experienced many of the things she talks to Jackson about. "They liked the way I sounded, but not the way I looked — those things happened to me in real life," she said.
