I. What is Lady GaGa's IQ?

There are no credible sources that validate Lady Gaga's intelligence. The "Poker Face" singer never publicly addressed the subject, nor did she confirm reported IQ levels that have been attributed to her online.

Lady Gaga’s IQ is believed to be 166 IQ, placing her among the top 0.1 percent of the world's population. Her IQ is so rare that only 1 in 184616 people can possess this IQ. In the population ratio chart, Gaga’s IQ can be compared to Albert Einstein’s IQ ( IQ 160).

She was a creative composer and excellent keyboardist, as well as a student at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, which leads us to her educational history. Several studies have established a link between intellect and musical abilities since studying music involves brains and effort.

Lady Gaga exemplifies this idea brilliantly. She began playing the piano at a young age and quickly acquired all of the classics, from Beethoven and Mozart to Bach and Chopin. The Grammy-winning performer began taking piano lessons at the age of four and still plays the instrument like a pro.

She is bilingual (English and French) (and knows a smattering of Italian and Russian). She is a talented composer (has written songs for Brittany Spears, New Kids on the Block, Fergie, and Pussycat Dolls). She is a skilled keyboardist (accompanies herself during live performances). These facts, taken together, do not prove that Lady GaGa’s IQ is 166, but they strongly suggest that she does.

Finally, Catherine Cox estimated in 1926 that several prominent classical composers (Bach, Hayden, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Strauss, Wagner) had IQs ranging from 160 to 170. Given the scarcity of great songwriters on Gaga's level, it's not a leap to think she may be among them.

1. Lady GaGa Educational Background

Lady Gaga grew up in an upper-middle-class home with the means to send her to a private school. She attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart, an all-girls school in Manhattan, and characterized herself as a hardworking and conscientious student.

Lady Gaga didn't fit in with her friends and was frequently tormented in high school. This event, she told The Sunday Project, "has taught me the significance of spreading kindness in the world because I believe it is something that we can repair."

According to reports, Lady Gaga also attended the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth. Because it's not simple to get into this center, this small information led some to assume that Lady Gaga IQ may actually be as high as the dubious web sites suggest.

According to the official website of CTY, this program is "dedicated to recognizing and cultivating the potential of academically gifted pre-college students globally." Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, Google co-founder Sergey Brin, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ronan Farrow are among its prominent graduates. It's unknown how Lady Gaga's involvement in this show influenced her because music has always been first for her.
