LG really opens up in this 1-hour-long interview and describes an incident at a pizzeria where some boys picked he up and threw her in a trash can. She was so embarrassed she never told anyone about it, not even her parents. The interview, "Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside," airs Thursday, May 26 @ 9 PM on MTV. She even admits the bullying still has an effect on her, her music and songwriting. And, I would add, her outrageous dressing. Now when I think back at some of her costumes, you can detect a wave of anger in the images she projects.
Here's a peek at the interview:
During the intimate chat, Mother Monster opens up about her rise to fame â€” from her school days of being bullied by classmates to the moment she decided to pursue her dreams of pop stardom. She speaks in-depth about the moments that shaped her as an artist, including the release of her highly anticipated album, Born This Way, on May 23.
"Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside" also focuses on Gaga at home, spotlighting her close relationship with her family and growing up in Manhattan before she made the life-changing decision to move out on her own to New York City's Lower East Side.
Gaga recalls being bullied by students at school and what impact it had on her. "I remember once, some of the girls from my class, they were hanging out with some boys that I knew also," the "Judas" singer says. "And then I went to meet some friends for some pizza that were at the same pizzeria, and the boys picked me up and threw me in the trashcan on the street on the corner of my block, while all the other girls from the school were leaving and could see me in the trash and everybody was laughing â€” and I was even laughing.
"I always have that nervous giggle and I just remember, like, holding back the tears and the lip quivering," she continues. "And I remember even one of the girls looking at me like, 'Are you about to cry? You're pathetic.' I remember I didn't tell anybody, that's what I remember. I remember I didn't tell anybody. I remember I didn't want to tell my parents because it was too embarrassing. And I remember I didn't want to really bring it up with my girlfriends even though they were there."
