Lady Gaga has credited Beyonce with helping her through her childhood bullying experiences, as she felt comforted and inspired by her Destiny’S Child music videos.
The Poker Face hitmaker endured years of suffering at the hands of bullies, and she pinpoints her most painful experience as when she was dumped in a trash can by a gang of thugs.

Gaga admits she used music as an escape and looked up to her now-friend Beyonce before she found fame.

In an interview for an MTV documentary called Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside, the singer says, “I’ve never told Beyonce this, but I remember laying on my grandmother’s couch crying and a Destiny’s Child video came on, and I remember watching Beyonce and thinking, ‘She’s a star – I want that. I want to be on MTV,’ and now I’m in music videos with Beyonce.”

Gaga and Beyonce collaborated on 2010 singles Telephone and Video Phone.
