Joanne Germanotta was the aunt of the pop icon who unfortunately passed away from lupus when she was in college. According to PEOPLE, when once performing her song “Till it Happens To You,” Gaga opened up about why the song was so personal. “It’s not only an important issue to me, but it’s an important issue to my family because when my father’s sister was in college, she was sexually assaulted…then, it tormented her so emotionally that it caused the lupus that she had to get so bad that she died.”
Lady Gaga’s birth name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta and she has claimed before she has felt like a reincarnation of her aunt. She has mentioned previously that this album will be immensely personable, so the name JOANNE is a clear indication of that!
Here’s some alleged singles from #JOANNE…”Perfect Illusion” and “Hey Girl” have been confirmed by Gaga herself.
