Lady Gaga's Painful Childhood Is Detailed in Her Mom's Essay

Lady Gaga's Painful Childhood Is Detailed in Her Mom's Essay

Lady Gaga carries her dog Asia in her arms while arriving at LAX Airport in an all black outfit on Thursday (April 16) in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old singer’s mom Cynthia Germanotta recently wrote an article for The Daily Beast to talk about their Born This Way Foundation and open up about Gaga‘s painful childhood.

“When my daughter Stefani—who most people know as Lady Gaga—was a child, she had to learn painful lessons about the dangers of cruelty and the importance of kindness,” she wrote. “She was creative and unequivocally her own person, but her peers didn’t always appreciate the things that made her unique—and different. As a result, they would sometimes taunt, humiliate, or exclude her. It was hurtful for her to experience and heartbreaking for me to watch.”

“But this mean-spirited treatment did more than sting in the moment—it shook Stefani’s confidence,” she added. “The persistent, thoughtless cruelty of her peers caused Stefani to question her identity and self-worth. That self-doubt, in turn, led to anxiety, depression, and destructive behavior. What in isolation may have been viewed as casually dispensed insults or ‘harmless pranks’ accumulated over time, causing a ripple effect that ate away at her emotional well-being.”

    No! Shocking. Not.

    She really should look into getting into recovery and give up the acting out. Maybe her husband can encourage treatment before it’s too late, because all this attention-seeking waste is hard to watch.

    Go to hell ho
    It’s insane to be bad

  • damian gonzales

    It isn’t hard to watch. Just look away.

    when did lady gaga get married?

  • MV

    She´s so self serving and deluted , her mom also washed money from that fundation of theirs to her own profit so is not like she´s the most morally inclined person out there. Gaga is a drug addict and also a very manipulative person. Her staff is always shocked about how cruel and envious she can be towards others singers. She needs to go away for good, her star faded 3 years ago.

  • Jstar

    Lady Gaga is a great representation of what every other singer should be like. She is multi talented, She is kind and unique, she is really special.

  • Jstar

    Lady Gaga has awesome music and is one of the best singers of all time, no one compares to her in this generation. I have her up there with the likes of MJ.

  • guyinsf

    Her pop music is actually quite good. Dance pop music is what it is, simple, catchy and danceable! She’s damn good at writing catchy dance songs.

  • guyinsf

    She actually is one of the very few stars who never badmouths others. She’s a great supporter of gay rights and women’s issues and has done so much in charity work. What have you done other than spread hate?

  • julie14401

    Where did you get that information from? Its not true.

  • Vincent Farace

    Lady Gaga proves artisticaly superiority, able to singing with success different genre of music, unlike the rest of female pop star who are able to singing only lolli pop for the rest of their life, like Madonna Ciccone. Lady Gaga is the only super talented top class once in life time true artist, unique the best, far better than just a pop star. Lady Gaga is only for honest smart people.

  • Vincent Farace

    We needs you go away for good MV, if you don’t means is some thing very wrong to you, and i feel sorry for you.
    LADY GAGA IS ONLY FOR HONEST SMART PEOPLE.

  • Calin Vaquero

    Mama can you hear me, save my career!!!

  • Calin Vaquero

    keep drinking the kool aid, gaga=coke head

  • FlakesofSunlite

    I hope she goes to her High School Reunion and throws dollar bills at her bullies’ faces. And I hope she “Vines” it.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    You can’t look away. This attention-seeking wasteful nonsense has become ‘who’ she is, and she was NOT born this way, get it? She was transported by core events she needs to debrief to feel better so she does not need to keep doing this. Will she be 50 and dressing like that? Will it be as ‘cool’ then? No.

    I read she was engaged at least. I thought she married. I just find the get-up a get-out pass to not be who she is. The get-ups are the largest mask she could wear.

  • Louie

    What? Her career doesn’t need saving, she’s rolling in $$ and paparazzi’s lmfaooo

  • Louie

    I know.. She is everything, yet people don’t see her that way. A lot of people hate on her just because they think she’s ugly (when she’s clearly not), and it’s that first judgement that sets of the negative ripple in everyones thought patterns about her.

  • ADH13

    Why do you care you obviously don’t like her so it’s no concern of yours.

  • Esteban Marin

    pffff. What the fuck are you talking about??? Literally everything you said a big fucking lie. Get the hell out of here.

  • Esteban Marin

    You’re a moron…acting out is for children, and she is a very intelligent individual. Acting out??Ha!

  • Artie Lee Bray

    Oh – a Madge stan. How precious.

  • Artie Lee Bray

    She just bought a 23 million dollar Estate. Stay pressed from your Mom’s basement. ;-)
