Lady GaGa doesn't regret her stripping past

By Super Admin

London, March 15 (ANI): Lady GaGa has no qualms about her former stripping days that lent her support during her teens.

The 22-year-old, born as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, revealed she left her posh family in shock after turning to stripping at 18.

"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," News of the World quoted her as saying.

"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," she added.

The pop sensation further revealed having achieved a sense of freedom with the act of dropping clothes though her parents thought otherwise.

She said: "I discovered a real personal freedom through it. Obviously my parents didn't like it. I was drawing huge crowds, setting hairspray alight on stage and dancing madly.

"My dad thought I'd lost it. With the drugs it was his reaction that pulled me back. I didn't go to Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. I did it myself. I have such a fear of failure, I didn't want anything to make me fail. So I stopped. I still drink and party, but there's no darkness now. Just a lot of fun." (ANI)
