I knew Lady Gaga was a thief but this is a new one on me:
In 2010, photos and video surfaced of a singer named Lina Morgana, who looked and sounded suspiciously similar to Lady Gaga and who was just starting to make waves with her outrageous performances. According to Morgana’s mother, boyfriend, and producer, Rob Fusari, who introduced the women, Morgana and Gaga were friends and frequent collaborators until Morgana’s suicide in 2008. It was she, they said, who pioneered Gaga’s signature fashion and sound. Morgana’s boyfriend said that when he saw Gaga perform, “it was like looking at a ghost.”
