Lady Gaga’s Height Is Much Shorter Than Fans Think

There’s a lot that can be said about the wonderful Lady Gaga, beginning with her fantastically different style and expanding into her diverse and inspirational music. There aren’t many ways the “Bad Romance” singer can catch people off guard anymore with her off-the-wall presence, but when it came out what her true height is — fans were shocked. Alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, no one ever noticed the difference, but as it turns out, Lady Gaga’s height is actually much shorter than you may think.

How tall is Lady Gaga?

According to one member on Gaga Daily, “I know she’s 5’1,” but I remember the book from her friend “Rivington Was Ours,” and it was stated that she is actually 4’11”. Honestly, I think it not impossible that she’s smaller than 5’1″. My friend and I have seen Gaga 2 feet away. My friend is 5’1″, the same height as Gaga, but she was taller than Gaga, who is 5’1″ and even wore heels.” Compared to some big names she has done work with, this height difference is even more phenomenal. Some were close enough to her height to make it less noticeable, but others would have been more challenging.

For instance, compared to Ariana Grande, with who she just released her latest hit, Gaga is 5’1,” and Grande is only five feet. This wouldn’t have made fans think twice about her height. However, alongside Bradley Cooper, who she starred next to in A Star is Born (and was rumored to be having an affair with) and “Telephone” co-singer Beyoncé Knowles, the pop singer should look significantly shorter. According to CelebHeights, Knowles is 5’7,” and Cooper is 6’1″. And yet photos like this one from Gaga’s Instagram tell a different story — showing Cooper and Gaga on set, with barely a height difference.

As it turns out, her larger-than-life personality and surprising outfits make her seem taller than she actually is. It looks like there’s a reason we never see the pop singer without her 10-inch heels, making her bare-foot 5’1″ presence reach new heights between 5’8″ and 6’7″ in her craziest styles. According to Celebily, Gaga isn’t ashamed of her five-foot, 108 pounds and doesn’t want her fans to be either. “This is who I am,” Gaga reportedly said. “And I am proud of myself, whatever my size.” Being so tiny compared to other stars has not affected Lady Gaga reaching for the stars and taking what she deserves. Despite her small stature, the star has shot high and climbed the ladder much further than many others can say.
