Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga Gets Wild Side From Dad

Lady Gaga inherited her wild streak from her father.

The 'Edge of Glory' hitmaker - who famously dressed in a gown made of meat and once hatched out of an egg live on stage - explained her dad Joe hired a stripper to teach her the piano and used to enjoy al fresco romps with random women.

She explained: "He was having sex with girls under the boardwalk in New Jersey before he went to see Bruce Springsteen.

"He saw a lot of himself in me. My first piano teacher was a stripper. My dad told me later. I used to say to her, 'Why do you have such long nails?' She just said, 'Someday you'll understand why.' "

However, the 25-year-old singer credits her father with "kicking her ass" and helping her to stop using cocaine.

She told US radio host Howard Stern: "I was for sure addicted to coke. I got off it because my father called me out and kicked my ass.

"I didn't do it with people, I did it alone. But I regret every line I did."

Despite overcoming her habit, Lady Gaga - real name Stefani Germanotta - confessed to still smoking cannabis on an occasional basis.
