Before she was Lady Gaga, she was just a gal trying to make it. Lady Gaga was on HBO’s hit show, The Sopranos, back in 2001.
In the episode, “Mob boss Tony Soprano’s son, A.J., is acting out while at the school pool with friends. Wearing a black top and jeans, Gaga is one of three girls hanging out, smoking cigarettes and watching the boys swim. One of A.J.’s friends then gets the idea to chuck a desk into the water. From there it’s a free-for-all, as Gaga and her pals toss equipment and sports trophies into the pool. A.J. ends up getting probation. Gaga, alas, is never heard from again” (MTV).
Gaga was only 15 years old when she starred on the show as a sort of “extra.” No one knew who she was or what she would become, but the video has surfaced almost a decade later and holds something completely different now. Lady Gaga was once known by her real name, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, and she’s taken us all by storm.
The video has gone viral today, so watch it below and let us know what you think! Can you spot Gaga?
