Lady GaGa has confirmed her father struggled to accept her wacky on-stage persona, as he was not happy to see his daughter performing in her "underwear".
Joseph Germanotta has long been rumoured to disapprove of Gaga's revealing outfits and bizarre costumes, and the pop superstar has now opened up about his personal battle to come to terms with the changes she went through after shooting to fame.
During an interview on U.S. talk show The View, Gaga reveals her dad was not impressed when he first saw her stripped off onstage but eventually came around to her vision.
She says , "(He was not happy with me being) in my underwear... (But) You know what, I think that deep down he knew I always had it. I just think it's hard to watch your kids grow up and change and become themselves. I think also, my dad was a bad boy and he loved rock 'n' roll, and I think the thing that terrified him the most was he saw himself inside of me."
