London: Pop star Lady Gaga feels she inherited a lot from her father Joe, who used to romp with women outdoors and even hired a stripper to teach his daughter how to play the piano.
"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`," a website quoted Gaga as saying.
However, the 25-year-old who is known for her outrageous dressing reveals she had a strict upbringing, and it was her father who insisted her to quit drugs.
"I was for sure addicted to coke. I got off it because my father called me out and kicked my a***. I didn`t do it with people, I did it alone. But I regret every line I did," Gaga said.
The star confessed she still smokes marijuana, insisting she wanted to be honest with her fans.
"I don`t do weed that often - and I tell the truth about that. I don`t respect artists who aren`t honest about what they do recreationally," she added.
