Lady GaGa Confesses "Traumatic" Past
The star has revealed all about the days before she became famous...
Lady GaGa has confessed all about her "traumatic" past, claiming that before she hit the big time, she lived in a grotty apartment infested with roaches and cocaine everywhere.
The Born This Way singer, who has made no secret of her past drug addiction, made the shocking admission during an interview with Neil Strauss for his upcoming book, Everyone Loves You When You Are Dead.
Strauss then told RadarOnline.com what Lady G had to say about her pre-fame apartment, stating that the eccentric popstress revealed: "Sometimes it freaks me out-- or I should say it petrifies me…"
"When I think about laying in my apartment (in New York) with bedbugs and roaches on the floor and mirrors with cocaine everywhere, and no will or interest in doing anything but making music and getting high,"
GaGa, real name Stefani Germanotta, continued: "All the trauma I caused to myself. Or it was caused by people that I met when being outrageous and irresponsible."
"I had such obstacles with drugs and rejection and people not believing in me. It's been a very long and continuous road that I love, but it's hard to just chalk it up to myself. I have to believe there's something greater than myself."
Strauss also told the website that the 24-year old star was reluctant to reveal more about her traumatic past, adding: "She said it was so horrible that she didn't want it in her younger fans' heads."
