Lady Gaga has opened up about her high school days andÂ theÂ problems she endured as a teen like bulimia and self-esteem issues. Gaga was interviewed by Maria ShriverÂ at a conference called “It’s Our Turn” held at the Brentwood School in Los Angeles over the weekend.
“I used to throw up all the time in high school. So Iâ€™m not that confident,” said Gaga. “I wanted to be a skinny little ballerina but I was a voluptuous little Italian girl whose dad had meatballs on the table every night. I used to come home and say, â€˜Dad, why do you always give us this food? I need to be thin.â€™ And heâ€™d say, â€˜Eat your spaghetti.â€™ Itâ€™s really hard, but â€¦ youâ€™ve got to talk to somebody about it.”
“It made my voice bad, so I had to stop,” she said. “The acid on your vocal cords â€” itâ€™s very bad. But for those of you who don’t sing, you maybe don’t have that excuse until it’s too late. It’s very dangerous.”
“Weight is still a struggle,” she said. “Every video Iâ€™m in, every magazine cover, they stretch you — they make you perfect. Itâ€™s not real life … Iâ€™m gonna say this about girls: The dieting wars have got to stop. Everyone just knock it off. Because at the end of the day, itâ€™s affecting kids your age. And itâ€™s making girls sick.”
