Lady Gaga has further opened up about the bullying hell she experienced at a convent school in New York, revealing mean teens would call her “a slut” and poke fun at her fake tan, overall look and even the way she laughed.
The pop superstar tells Rolling Stone magazine her schoolmates at all-girls Catholic school Convent of the Scared Heart in New York City teased her for being ugly and having a big nose.

And the torment was almost too much for her at times – and there were days she just didn’t want to go to school at all.

She says, “(They’d say) ‘Your laugh is funny, you’re weird, why do you always sing, why are you so into theater, why do you do your make-up like that, what’s with your eyebrows?’

“I used to do these really big Evita brows. I used to self-tan, and I had this really intense tan in school, and people would say, ‘Why the f**k are you so orange, why do you do your hair that way, are you a dyke (lesbian)…?’

“I used to be called a slut… I didn’t even want to go to school sometimes.”

And she’s amused by quotes given to reporters by mean former schoolmates, suggesting Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, was a popular kid with a lot of friends.

The Poker Face hitmaker adds, “All of those people were bullies.”
