Lady Gaga suffered trauma as a youngster

New York: Pop star Lady Gaga has revealed that she suffered trauma while abusing cocaine and alcohol as a youngster.

She made the confession to writer Neil Strauss, author of pick-up manual ‘The Game.’

“All of the trauma I caused to myself . . . There are some things that are so traumatic, I don’t even fully remember them,” reports a website.

Strauss said he called on his persuasion techniques to get stars to open up for his book, “Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead.”

“When I interviewed Christina Aguilera, she talked for the first time about surviving domestic abuse . . . I think musicians see me as some sort of confessional,” he added.
