We all know her hit songs – ‘Just Dance’, ‘Pokerface’, ‘Eh Eh’ – but many of us are still wondering just who is Lady Gaga and where did she come from? In a recent interview with News of the World newspaper in the UK the singer opened up revealing her stripper past.

“I was working in strip clubs when I was 18.” The singer revealed to the magazine.

“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.”

“I went against all I was brought up to be; I moved out of home, wouldn’t take any help from my parents (her internet entrepreneur dad and his business partner wife) and supported myself with waitressing jobs and stripping.”

It seems that – as expected – Gaga’s parents were also surprised by the drastic change that the young girl’s life had taken, with the Lady commenting on her father’s reaction saying:

“He couldn’t look at me for a few months, I was in leather thongs, so it was hard for him — he just didn’t understand.”

“I have a strong sense of my own sexuality. I love the naked human body and I have huge body confidence.”

From there, Gaga went on to writing songs for such superstars as Britney Spears and the ‘Pussycat Dolls’ before deciding that it was her time to stand in the limelight – transforming herself from a brunette with braces to the bleach blonde sex symbol we know her as today.

Who would of guessed however, the megastar the stripper would become so quickly.

The Lady commented on her fame saying: ”Some people are just born stars. You either have it or you haven’t, and I was definitely born one. Even as a kid I always had eyes on me, like bees on honey. I was always outrageous and I was always very smart.”
