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 see very little in common here the mom just needs to let go all singers today are trying to be weird and different so ur goin to see similarities every once in a while but I wouldn't say lady gaga stole anything and also just because ur rich dosent mean you can't have a tragic life sometimes more money can lead to more problems so who is she to say lady gagas life wasn't tragic


She is great wow but DAMN why did she do that to herself what a waste !!!!!!! omg


This shows Lina had a very beautiful side! I haven't seen anything beautiful about lady gaga!- not that her music isn't great- i love it, but the poor mother of Lina- reaching out to hold onto a part of her daughter. Maybe that's who needs to let go!


there are no similarities at all. Lina's mother just wants to earn money on her daughter's tragedy and talent. no wonder why she committed sucide if she had to deal with such a parent!


umm,, sorry but the only resemblance i found was in the beginning when she had blond hair, but even then they're completely different. sounds to me like the mom just wants attention. they're music is all different, and the style. x/


Sorry for the loss but she is not Lady Gaga. Really again I am sorry but I just do not see the similarity.


i see no LADY GAGA in that video any where. they don't have the same style, not the same look, not the same music, not the same voice,and not the same jaw line nothing in this video says Lady GAGA ....... i think that this is just an attempt by a grieving mother to get her daughter the attention she thought she deserved...... In the article above it says that oh... she went to school with nicky hilton she was spoiled.... well you don't know what kinds of things she went through at home or in her private life or in her relationships that made her the person she is today...... Lady GAGA is an artist... she is talented and different and the girl in this video looks like she is a punk rocker version of Miley Cyrus!!!! Just my opinion!!!!


Guess Mom is hoping to become as big a thorn in the side of Gaga as possible (using the victim card to avoid scrutiny) while looking for a huge settlement.


this was a great video.


No disrespect to the family of Lina...but she sounds nothing like Lady Gaga they look nothing alike and their videos dont really seem alike to me but thats jus my would think that if Gaga would hav stolen lina's identity they would hav said something from the beginning not when Gaga's career is at its hightest.
