IS MARILYN MONROE IQ THE SAME AS LADY GAGA?

Some information about Lady Gaga

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (born March 28, 1986), known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Without Lady Gaga IQ, she is known for her unconventionality and provocative work as well as experimenting with new images.

Gaga began her musical career performing songs at open mic nights and school plays. She studied at CAP21 through New York University's Tisch School of the Arts before dropping out to become a professional musician. After Def Jam Recordings cancelled her contract, Gaga worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing, where Akon helped her sign a joint deal with Interscope Records and his own label KonLive Distribution in 2007. She rose to prominence the following year with her debut album, a dance-pop and electropop record titled The Fame, and its chart-topping singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face". A follow-up EP, The Fame Monster (2009), featuring the singles "Bad Romance", "Telephone", and "Alejandro", also proved successful.

Jeffrey A. Larson stated: “I was unable to find any reliable source for Lady Gaga's IQ.  That's not surprising.  Had she ever consented to having her IQ score publicized, it would have made headline news in the Entertainment industry.

That leaves us to seeing if there is a credible way to estimate her IQ.  And yes, there is.  At the very least, we can find a floor for her IQ.
 

In middle school, Stefani Germanotta participated in a summer program sponsored by the John Hopkins University Center For Talented Youth.  Eligibility for this program is based on SAT, ACT, or similar scores.  This year, for example, for a 7th grader to be eligible, he or she would have to score a 510 on the Critical Reading portion of the SAT, or a 21 on the ACT reading test (in 7th grade!)  Other famous people who participated in that program as youths include Mark Zuckerberg and Sergei Brin.  My own daughter participated in a very similar program run by Duke University.  As a high school senior, she scored a perfect 800 on her SAT math...and she was far from the brightest kid in the program!

Here's the documentation that Lady Gaga was admitted to the John Hopkins program:

The author, who is part of the Duke TIP program my daughter attended, states these programs are typically aimed at the top 1% in terms of IQ.  The cutoff IQ for the top 1% is around 135-137, depending on the IQ test.  That's roughly the IQ estimated for Bill and Hillary Clinton (between 135 and 140 for both).

So, we may not be able to verify that Gaga's IQ is 166, but it seems a very safe bet that she's at 135 as a minimum, above the minimum Mensa standard of 130-132 (again, depending on the test).

Can we support an IQ of 166?  There is no hard evidence, but...

She is fluent in both English and French (and knows a smattering of Italian and Russian).
She is a gifted composer (has written songs for Brittany Spears, New Kids on the Block, Fergie, and Pussycat Dolls).
She is an accomplished keyboardist (accompanies herself during live performances).

These things taken together are not proof that she has an IQ over 135, but hint strongly that she does.

Finally, many famous classical composers (Bach, Hayden, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Strauss, Wagner) were all estimated by Catherine Cox in 1926 as having IQs between 160 and 170.  Considering the rarity of gifted composers at Gaga's level, it's not too big a stretch to suppose she might be in that company.”
