“Los Angeles, Calif. — Miss Ethel Mildred Lee, 23-year-old girl born in this country of Chinese parents, is shown at her job as an electrician-helper at the Los Angeles yards of the California Shipbuilding Corporation, where she has worked for almost two years. Extra incentives to help the war effort are two brothers in the U.S. Army and one in the Navy yard at Honolulu, Hawaii. Miss Lee, who’s 4 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 98 pounds, buys $100 worth of War Bonds a month.” — January 20, 1944

Gaga hasn’t always had an easy life. She was bullied, pushed around, made to feel like trash, dropped from her label; all she had to hold on to was her dream. Even when she was on top she never felt like the superstar she was. With all her sincerity and kindness there were still those who set out to bring her down.
But now it seems like she is ready to be free, ready to give a smile to the world and have fun.
