London: Lady Gaga had requested her fans to complete their education as it plays a vital role in decision making for career.

Gaga attended an upmarket private school in New York and said that her academic achievements have helped her to become a pop star.

"Don`t ever make the mistake that you`re a dumb blonde or a pushover. I was a grade-A student and I went to a really top school in New York where the children of middle-class parents are expected to achieve at everything,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling the Mail.

"I started piano at the age of four and I passed every grade with top marks. I wanted to be smart because I wanted to be able to control things. My career isn`t about other people`s ideas and decisions. It`s about my decisions, my vision, my inspirations. I listen to other people, but I`s smart enough to know what to take notice of.

“Never underestimate the importance of education," she added.
