Lady Gaga Stole Identity from Lina Morgana, Mother of Late Teen Claims

by at . Comments

This is an unusual story: a woman named Yana Morgana claims that Lady Gaga is only famous due to her late daughter, Lina Morgana.

That 19-year old committed suicide a couple years ago, but not before she was introduced to the singer (then Stefani Germanotta) in 2007. Yana tells The New York Post that it was Lina's dark, edgy style that inspired Germanotta to become Lady Gaga.

Morgana is now seeking the rights to release the songs her daughter recorded with Gaga.

Ga Ga Rah-Ah-Ah-AH

Did Lina Morgana inspire the Lady Gaga we know today?

"I'm doing this because I want to keep her spirit alive," Yana told the newspaper. "Lady Gaga is holding Lina's soul, and I want her soul to be free."

Added the grieving mother: "Every other word she says is from Lina. She talks about having a dark and tragic life, but she had everything she wanted in the world. She went to [the same] high school as Nicky Hilton, her parents were rich. But Lina did have a tough life, and she often talked about her tragic life."

In 2008, within a year of collaborating with Gaga, Lina jumped to her death from the roof of a hotel on Staten Island. Approximately a month later, the world was introduced to the eccentric artist that is Lady Gaga.

Tyler Schwab, Lina's ex-boyfriend, backs up Yana's claim.

"It was the same style, the same look, the same music, the same voice, the same jaw line - the way they expressed themselves," said Schwab. "And I was like, 'Is that Lina?' It was so, so shocking. It was like looking at a ghost."

You can actually check out a music video Lina made below. What do you think?


I'm not saying this cause' I'm a little monster and I love Lady Gaga but sorry Gaga and Lina are different talented women. I just don't see how Gaga has copied her. She has a different style to Gaga, Gaga seems to be more inspired by Madonna than Lina. Wacky style or not Gaga would still have been big.


Wow! Amazing resemblance. She was a very talented young lady & I'm sorry for her mother's loss. I can understand her wanting people to see her daughter's work.


It looks like she was a very talented and unique spirit... Gaga is just a conglomeration of all the tragic-beautiful women she idolizes. [Probably] including Lina. To me she's just a big imitation: throw on a Marilyn Monroe wig, put on Jon-Benet's makeup, and a Natalie Wood in "Gypsy" style burlesque outfit and you have her fashion inspiration. Before anyone can call her an original, they should be knowledgeable about true legends. I mean she really is talented, but that's not why she's famous. Take Sarah Bareilles... she's far more talented, also a pianist, and because she doesn't wear bee-keeper masks and men's whitey tighties she's not nearly as famous.


No I don't see any similarities or any resemblance at all between gaga and lina, Gaga is herself. she's real and her style wasn't stolen from lina, It's just her own. I adore her. it's a sad story how lina margonna would commit suicide. I'm not trying to be mean or offensive but I don't see any resemblance between gaga and lina after watching their videos, they barely sound alike and they don't even look alike. The style is pretty different too


Why would this girl's mother put this on Lady Gaga? She has her soul??? The girl made the decision to kill herself not anyone else.


I'm a gaga fan and i watched the video but i don't think lady gaga copied Lina's style nor hold her soul, I watched lady gaga's performance back in 2006 and she is really different from Lina. Im sorry for the mother's loss, but why does she have to blame it on gaga? These Two people has talents..............


Oh and by the way, Gaga would not have been big regardless, have you seen her old stuff? She is as plain as a glass of water and her music was hardly anthing to write home about. A bacon swimsuit, a metal beard and a few crazy hair do's and people think she is a fricken genius. SHE DOESNT EVEN WRITE HER OWN MUSIC. There are so many talented writer/singers who have their stuff stolen everyday, I know, my friend wrote a piece of piano music, the company that was looking to sign her, payed her for the song and gave it to some eye candy, gave her the money and then backed out of signing her. So next time you think how great your fav poppy is, remember they no doubt are just an auto tuned drone who does and sings what she is told.


We do know their relationship, they collaborated on music among other things, that show a close working relationship. The mother doesnt want money or a lawsuit, she wants what every parent wants, to see that her daughter gets the credit she deserves. Anyone with half a brain can see the artistic resemblence, the music itself is only a similar style. Instead or ragging on a mother the memory of Lina, why not just accept that this is the nature of the modern music industry, fake, created pop stars, who steal music and style from the lesser known. If Gaga was doing anything in her memory, the she would have said so, instead she fabricates this image of how strange and profound she is and has always been, when we know its just an image she has taken on, with her comments and interviews just fluff for people to get sucked in to the false image.


gaga would've been big regardless of knowing lina. but you guys need to show some empathy, lady gaga is LADY GAGA i don't listen to her music but she is talented and was destined for superstardom. i don't think she stole anything from this girl, but she definitely thinks about her, she HAS to. Whenever you know someone, a friend, who dies, it will affect you. lady gaga said she is obsessed with beautiful women who died mysteriously. she worked with this girl, she definitely at least remembers her and thinks about her just like she thinks about other tragic women who are famous, but to actually KNOW someone and work with them, it can change you. we don't know their relationship, maybe they were close, maybe they'd hang out and try on clothes. when she died and lady gaga become SUPER FAMOUS maybe it made gaga feel guilty, so she felt like she should tribute her in a way, by letting her inspire her life in some way. WE DON'T KNOW!!! ONLY gaga knows!!


okay im a huge gaga fan so i asked my sister if this was anything like my mommy monster and she said no. only when she had the blonde wig . im sorry for the loss of lina she looks like a very wonderful girl full of life and talent ... but she is not like gaga . and just bcuz someone has money dosent mean they dont hurt my parents live comfortable and i have my own problems just bcuz someone is privlaged dosent mean they dont have heartace. i mean if thats how the mother feals i respect that but if this is just a scam to get publisatey from yre DEAD daugher it sick and gross
