Today marks Lady Gaga’s 25th birthday, and it’s hard to fathom all that she’s already accomplished her her short life: five Grammys, three #1 hits on the Hot 100, 15 million album sales, 51 million single sales, nine million Twitter followers and one heck of a collection of clothing in her closet (catch her wildest looks at Celebuzz). But believe it or not, there once was a time when “gaga” was simply known as baby talk. Flip through our gallery to see what was going on in both pop culture and the news when the “Born This Way” singer—known then as simply Stefani Joanne Germanotta—was welcomed into the world.

    In her song, The Queen, she says “I will fly on a Challenger across the sky, like a phoenix so you can remind me of the dream I bore.” I think it’s reffering to the Challenger exploding a few seconds into liftoff.
