OMMFG. This explains sooo much. Lady GaGa has revealed in an astonishingly frank interview that she used to be a stripper at age 18, and that she used to use drugs. So brave of her to speak about her past in this way!
The chart topping US singer gave an interview to Fabulous Mag, in which she spilled a whole host of secrets that I never knew about her. I am a very late addition to Team GaGa and only really fell in love with my latest girl crush in the last fortnight or so. Therefore, I shall not be held accountable for being effing clueless that GaGa used to pay her rent by shaking her goodies.
Seriously, who knew???
I knew that the singer was from a pretty wealthy background, as she went to the same Catholic school as Parasite Hilton (and presumably had all her PVC outfits and her pop socks fumigated when she left).
On being a stripper and working it like it was the end of the month/ the rent was due, the subject of Perez Hilton’s wet dreams said, “I was working in strip clubs when I was 18. Girls from my background weren’t meant to turn into someone like me. I come from a wealthy Italian family, went to a good school. You’re meant to live with Mom and Dad until they die.”
She continued “I went against all I was brought up to be; I moved out of home, wouldn’t take any help from my parents and supported myself with waitressing jobs and stripping. My act was pretty wild. I’d wear black leather and dance to Black Sabbath, Guns N’ Roses and Faith No More. Very rock ’n’ roll.”
On her drug use, she revealed less about herself but said that she wanted to discourage people from following her path, ”I don’t like to talk about it too much but there were drugs, serious drugs. I wouldn’t want to inspire other people to do the same.”
