Lady GaGa has revealed the full extent of her hell at the hands of childhood bullies, telling how she was once dumped in a trash can by her laughing tormentors.
The Poker Face hitmaker was targeted during her school years by several classmates who would tease her and abuse her for being "eccentric".
And she's now revealed the low point came when three boys threw her in a filthy garbage can while their female friends watched and laughed.
Gaga tells the Guardian Weekend magazine, "I'm eccentric and talkative and audacious and theatrical, and I used to get picked on. I got thrown in a trash can on a street corner once by some boys who were hanging out with girls in my class.
"I got profanity written all over my locker at school and all the others were nice and clean. I got pinched in the hallways and called a slut... (When they put me in the trash can I felt) worthless. Embarrassed. Mortified. I was 14. Three boys put me in it. The girls were laughing when they did it."
