    yeah yeah yeah, so much pain. All these fucking idiots claim to have been bullied. i feel so bad for her with her upper middle class upbringing. She has no fucking clue. Besides, sometimes you bring shit on yourself, especially when you act and look like this ugly bitch.

    tired of her. she always playing the victim. who cares about her



  4. 4

    grats on the new layout, it's shittier than before (fits well your obsession with lady caca), and won't curb the decline in traffic

    Look, this is heresay information, so I don't expect anybody to blindly believe in it, but I know a number of people who knew her in high school, and all this nonsense about being bullied is just a ploy to get losers like us to "relate" to her…

    She was in fact quite popular, slept with tons of guys and if anything, was feared by the other girls… And in terms of ambition, it was pretty clear that she would go on to be a star… So whatever,,, everyone gets teased… BFD…

    heard it all before.

    I am not a hater… but how can we know that it is true?
    I mean, it can be true…but it is very probable that she just makes the story up…
    it suites the image ( "fighter", "survivor" , "victim" or whatever shit she wants to play)

    Almost everyone can recall a painful or embarrassing incident from high school. But there is a difference between a one time incident and chronic day after day harassment. It is the relentless bullying that is so damaging, the rest is not ok, but it seems to be kinda normal. I was humiliated one day in school by one of the popular girls who teased me about my clothes. It was painful, but it was not a regular occurrence. I got over it in about a week. I would never equate my little incident with kids who have been truly bullied.



  9. 9

    Hmm..I didnt hear any of this when she first blasted out. Dont most people say she was a pretty popular teen in school? Whatever



  10. 10

    Yeahhh.. I don't believe a word that comes out of her mouth.

    "Sad and awful, but a true testament to her perseverance!" OMG SHUT UP!! I have no doubt in my mind that Lady Gaga is completely exaggerating the bullying she faced. She's playing the sympathy card now for those album sales. Just like she is so wonderful that she is dedicating a dollar for every album you buy. Except you have to buy the deluxe album for 15.99 lol



  13. 13

    R.I.P Lina Morgana



  14. 14

    at least she didn't use bullying as an excuse to beat up one of her backup dancers



  15. 15

    Remember all the painful bullying you've committed on your website? Remember how you called Fergie fugly, or Kirstie fat, or Christina Floptina etc. etc. etc. Your new self-righteous, holier than thou personality is supposed to convince us you've changed but you still host the worst show on TV about bullying, called Bad Girls. Anyone as committed to the cause as you say you are would distance themselves from that show. You haven't changed a bit. Oh, and fuck GaGa and her crocodile tears.

    Some of the comments here are so fucking stupid.Like you have the right not to like Lady GaGa. Everyone has different musical taste , but for people who hate her you are going out of your way to leave nasty comments .It's just dumb the internet is mostly Trolls nowadays If you are sick of GaGa then don't read or comment on post about her don't go Google shit about and the will keep the GaGa level in your at a low.You guys say Perez is obsessed I hate to break it to you but so are you you pray that he posts something about her so you can leave nasty comments.Also money doesn't mean you happy if you say she has money she can be the riches person in the world and still have self esteem problems.



  17. 17

    Isn't it amazing how she has lived through everything and has experienced everything just like everyone else.

    She is a straight woman singing a song about born this way…..she can't relate…it just makes her money to pretend to understand your pain……all marketing people…she is nothing more than a marketing scheme for the gays…it is what they want to hear.



  18. 18

    Re: Merab – speaking YOUR TRUTH does not make you a hater….you are allowed to voice your opinion in this country…whether the gays like it or not…

    don't back down!

    Liar, people she went to school with will tell you this bitch is fucking is a liar. She is playing the bully card so she will be able to get sympathy sales…. "I'm a Fake bitch Baby"

    Re: BeatGoesOn88 – from what I hear she was the one who was the bully.



  21. 21

    wow



  22. 22

    SHE IS LYING! She will say, wear and do anything for attention. I'd like to bully her right now.



  23. 23

    Re: hoochpit – Wow, you are one jaded and bitter person….Bullying is no joke and it does affect one deeply for the remainder on their lives…She is a wonderful example of overcoming and being successful. She is an amazing talent with an artistic vision like no other….best thing to happen to music in a loooong time….You are exactly what she is speaking about….questioning her truth, calling her an "ugly bitch" (by the way, she is hot…seen her several times….sexy as hell)…Can't you see the irony? Or are you sooooo deep in your own self-loathing to see? Open your eyes, your heart and have some compassion….stop spewing your hate….you are exacly what is wrong with this world….Love yourself and love others.



  24. 24

    i don't blame the kids that bullied her. she stinks worse than kim kardashian's rectum.



  25. 25

    word.



  26. 26

    she sounds like Sarah Palin always someone against me.



  27. 27

    one more train for her to ride… blah blah blah….



  28. 28

    No I am not siding with bullies saying this, but if you are going to behave, look like, etc. like a freak embarrassing retard, you are basically setting yourself up to be bullied! Some people actually bring it on themselves to be bullied (like this freak!). Just saying! Hate on me all you want for posting this! People have the right to their own opinions…



  29. 29

    we all went through painful experiences while growing up, WHY PLAY THE VICTIM GAGA WHWN YOUR LIFE IS SO GOOD. That is what I love about BRITNEY SPEARS, she just moves on without playing the victim card.



  30. 30

    lie or not a lie its one thing , but the saddest part is ppls are bullied everyday and its just sad that there so much hate in the world. Why cant we accept ppls as they are and just live our lives without hatin on eachother is it rli that hard ?



  31. 31

    What the hell did you do to your site??? All this shit takes FOREVER to load!
    *
    And Stefani…fucking spare us! One incident like this is NOT bullying! Can not wait til your 15 minutes are up!



  32. 32

    Intelligent readers ALL KNOW that this ugly cocaine whore LIES faster than a horse can trot. It's TRUE! FLOP LIAR!!



  33. 33

    Re: sanfran1 – And you must be gay to think she is hot. Ya see, the gays are the only one that thinks she's sexy. No straight man that get's laid more than once a year would ever touch this troll. Funny how gay men then they can tell people what women are hot, when in fact, they DON'T FIND WOMEN ATTRACTIVE ANYWAY, which is why they are gay.



  34. 34

    Prince (thecelebritycafe.com)

    I am really not surprised she was bullied as a young kid. she seems like she was always different than others. look at her now though, she's on top of the world and everyone seems to embrace her.

    This video cracks me up. The clothes, the make-up, the nasally voice. She is a joke right? She can't seriously be like that.



  37. 37

    Re: sanfran1 – If gaga was so talented she would have made it as the dark haired girl behind the piano!! Instead she had to resort to dressing like a drag to get attention and making more popish music!! Gaga is the faker then fake! Also you must be one ugly/on drugs if you think anything on gaga is hot!! A person that has natural beauty deos not sleep in there make up every night so nobody sees there horse face for what it is!!!



  38. 38

    Not into her music but I'm damn PROUD of anyone who will STAND UP against
    Bullying, Hate, and the perpetuation of ignorance. Hate your music girl but right on with this message and thank you for being that lil piece of sunshine to whatever child and or adult who may be hurting in the dark. BRAVO GAGA.



  39. 39

    I think Lady GaGa is overexposed, but I do admire her commitment and dedication to human rights and social justice.



  40. 40

    Re: hoochpit – Intelligent heterosexual males ALL KNOW she is NOT HOT !! She has an ugly toucan-like schnoz; massive cellulite in her rear end; baloney pancake breasts; yellow teeth from smoking 2 packs a day. Plus she speaks in a retarded fashion. WHAT a TURNOFF!!

  44. 44

    Oh…how the mighty have fallen so badly. Oldest marketing tool is too do this, I don't buy it. She wasn't feeling like the high school loser that she was when she was doing The Fame was she? Flop.

    Re: hoochpit – Upper middle class? Yeah right. She grew up full on rich. Doesn't her family live on Park Avenue?



  50. 50

    I don't believe victimization stories that are peppered with pressured speech many years after the event. Pressured speech is prevalent in heightened anxiety and Liars.



  51. 51

    That's total bullshit! I know so many people who went to school with her and she was not bullied! She never dressed weird or crazy. She used to wear Abercrombie and Fitch and dressed like a normal teenager. She had plenty of friends. Her whole image is just that - AN IMAGE. Her fans actually believe what comes out of her mouth!? They love a persona- they have no idea who the real Stefani Germanotta is. She did not start dressing crazy UNTIL she got signed and they switched her whole image up from her looks to her sound. Lady Gaga was a well-off upper east side girl who had plenty of friends and who dressed normal. The fact that she is trying to come off like she had this hard upbringing is total bullshit. She makes contradictory statements in her interviews all the time. She is beyond fake.



  52. 52

    "greater song writer"? I don't think so!

    53

    this from the woman who ridiculed Christina Aguilera's choice to get personal with her music & sing about her real life pain? Christina doesn't just confront her past or current issues, she sings about overcoming them as well (Fighter, The Voice Within, Stronger Than Ever etc) but now Gaga is a victim…& I can't stand how she constantly segregates her "little monsters" calling them freaks, MONSTERS, a new race (that SHE birthed, & is the mother of…the monster ball is for you freaks little monsters! I made it for you! If you pay to get in that is, I'm Tinkerbelle, clap for me or I'll die…I hate money…but you can't get in unless you pay) it's narcissistic, stupid, ingenuine, contrived, & most of all makes no sense.



  54. 54

    I'm sorry but i really don't believe it.. i haven't heard any stories comfirming this just the opposite actually..Re: Ivybby – who is that in your avatar? you always have a interesting picture



  55. 55

    Re: hoochpit

    what happened to you to make you so negative? Anything? Can you prove all these people have never been bullied? I would like to see you try to prove. Bullying isn't a rare thing. It's happens everyday all the time to any social class. ANY SOCIAL CLASS. I have a feeling you are a bully by the way you posted your comment. What the hell is so damn wrong with celebrities trying to help people who have been bullied? Would you have rather all celebrities teach people to be tough and put up their fists? Be a robot? I bet your gonna repsond now "BLAH BLAH BLAH WHATVER YOU'R STUPID I WASN'T TALKIN TO YOU BLAH BLAH GET A LIFE" well save it. Just be nice.



  56. 56

    P.s. her last staement makes me want to snipe her…. a new race..or a "race within a race" wtf.. if she was trying to promote equallity she wouldn't try to to creat a race within a race that only except eachother.. she would try to make people understand about peace and love and all that tree hugger b.s…there is only one race.. wow she really is fucking out of her mind.. she is not a god she is a crappy pop artist who jacks peoples style >:P

    Re: IVIV – she really said that about Christina A.?



  57. 57

    Gaga said before that she purposely did things to get in trouble in school and she did things to be different. No kidding she's going to be bullied, but she's a rich bitch so who cares?



  58. 58

    i never knew i could relate to her. NOBODY DESERVES THAT! ALL THESE HATEFUL COMMENTERS CAN STFU!



  59. 59

    Is that why she changed her name and pretends to be somebody she is not. Your name is Stefanie and guess what your like everybody else.

    Re: J-Doll – Kerli.



  61. 61

    How can anyone buy this crap? She was a spoiled rich kid in a private school. MULTIPLE sources from her school confirmed that she was never bullied and in fact she was one of the popular girls who were known for being the entitled "better then everyone else" group. Too bad her monsters believe everything she says… its such a bunch of shit people can be so naive. I truly feel bad for anyone who for one second believes she was bullied- because clearly you are are easily influenced.LOL



  62. 62

    Re: hoochpit – its the comments LIKE THAT! that send ppl over the edge everyday, lady gaga and all the ppl who dont fit into societys image of beauty are not the problem. YOU ARE, THE PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE THE PROBLEM! being hateful toward someone? for what? being different? your comment showed a true reflection on how you view yourself, thats what bullies do, they are so fucking mean to others bc they cant deal w. whatever their dealing w. in a more peaceful way.

  65. 65

    Trying to hard. Wasn't she friends with Paris growing up?



  66. 66

    I'm feeling for her, I know how it is. Been badly bullied my self and I'm still bullied today. But they are all a bunch of no life pathetic excuse of human beings. You showed them all, sure, the bullying is still their, but today they are all wanting to be you or just hating you for your success.

    Re: M: – If you didn't care you wouldn't comment.



  67. 67

    Wow so many negative comments… Xtina fans need to find another site take their anger amongst themselves… But anyways, Gaga looks so cute in that outfit, and thumbs up for her for sharing that experience. It's very inspiring to see what she's become after all that she's gone through.



  68. 68

    She is SUCH a liar! It's astounding how she constantly creates lies about things that supposedly happened to her. Ask anyone who went to school with her, she was NOT bullied. A good friend of mine who did go to school with her said she, in fact, was the one who wasn't very nice to certain types of people. You can't believe one word out of her mouth. I really hope one day people stop buying into her BS.



  69. 69

    SHE WAS FREAKING WEALTHY AND WENT TO THE SAME SCHOOL AS PARIS HILTON AND GAGA LOOKED LIKE A COMPLETE CUTE GIRLY GIRL!!
    I DON'T BELIEVE HER!!!! SHE IS MAKING UP THIS BULLYING THING TO GAIN SYMPATHY AND FANS!!!

    Re: oxceranoid – you're an idiot to assume that all people who dislike gaga are christina fans… Soo you like lady gaga should i assume you are a member of the illuminati like she is?



  72. 72

    stop making up stories.



  73. 73

    Does she even HAVE any of her own hair left? That's the single most ugliest hairstyle I've ever seen on a woman and with her facial features, the worst she could have picked. I won't even mention how horrid that makeup is and why she wants the "Austin Powers" mole thing going on. She was a spoiled rich girl who I seriously doubt was ever truly bullied. My almost 13 year old daughter was ready to commit suicide because of the torture she was getting at school. Graffiti being spread in the bathrooms, being called ugly on a daily basis, etc. She's coming back from it but I don't believe for a nanosecond that Gaga is a damn victim.



  74. 74

    Here gaga! heres all my money! even though ive been through similar situations or even worse, i just think your situation had to be worse than mine because of how much heart you put to tell this story! you make me feel like i belong because you tell these stories! yayyyy im born this way…..wait i thought giving all my money and listening to gaga would change something for me but it didn't……oh poop



  75. 75

    Re: hoochpit – Hmm.. so lets see, what you are saying here, is that if you are middle class you do not get bullied? So, the wealthier you have, the less discrimination, hate and bullying you receive. Middle class people do NOT get bullied?
    Thats the first idiotic part of your post.
    The second idiotic part is where you say some people bring it on themselves? Really? So, everyone should act and look a certain way, keep quiet, keep to themselves, just keep their head down so that they can blend in, so that the stupid judgmental fools like you don't come bouncing around and make their lives hell.
    You my friend, are a f*cking fool.



  76. 76

    She was never bullied. She's using it as a tool because it's a popular topic. She'll do and say anything to keep herself relevant. Hasn't that been apparent yet?



  77. 77

    I don't know what I find more disturbing: The fact that this chick CLAIMS she was "bullied" even though she used to look like your typical trendy/popular Abercrombie mallrat, the fact that she CLAIMS to have talent, even though no one gave a shit about her or her shitty piano rock, until she completely changed her music style and became manufactured pop product, the fact that she CLAIMS to be such an original "artist", even though she's basically built a career/empire out of ripping off other people, or the fact that her "Little Monsters" rush to defend & embrace her, even though it's painfully obvious that every word that comes out of her mouth is complete & utter insincere bullshit.



  78. 78

    Re: Ivybby – kerli is a REAL singer, with a UNIQUE style, with GREAT music, and with a BEATIFUL life story, she used to survive with 100$ monthly, she was used to eat rice for weeks, and she turned out to be a really fabulous musician, by the way, do you know when her new album will come out ?

    PEOPLE STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW SOMEONE BEEN BULLY CHANGE THEM. THIS MAY BE A LIE OR MAY NOT WHO KNOWS. YES SHE IS NO PRETTY NOT SHE IS NO HOT. BUT I THINK THIS WOMEN HAD GIVEN SOME PEOPLE A FEELING OF FREEDOM OR BEING UNAFRAID OF WHO THEY REALLY ARE. TO THOSE THAT SAY THAT PEOPLE BRING BULLING UPON THEM I JUST HAVE TO SAY THAT YOU PEOPLE DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEEL TO NO FIT IN FOR WHAT EVER REASON. AND ANY WAYS IF THE PEOPLE THAT WRITE HERE HATE HER SO MUCH WHY DO YOU EVEN WASTE YOUR TIME WRITING A COMMENT JUST GET OVER IT THE GIRL HAS CAURAGE TO BE AND DO WHAT SHE WANT. SOMETHING THAT PROBABLY OTHERS WON'T.

    Re: MsJules – Sorry you didn't understand my sense of humor. So i'm a idiot aye? Well you must be stupid then. :)

  84. 84

  85. 85

    Re: suzyelizabeth
    Well, I hope that's not your picture in your profile, because the shit on top of that head that is called a hairdo is ROTTED.



  87. 87

    I don't know why people find it so difficult to believe she's been bullied. From the moment she first came on the scene, she's been bullied, been called ugly, tranny, etc., and this was way before she got all weird & crazy. I come from a middle class background and went to school with a lot of rich kids. Bullying happens across all socio-economic backgrounds. Just because she seemed to look the part of fitting in high school, doesn't mean inside she didn't feel like an outsider. I thought I was different in high school, but in hindsight, I really blended, but it didn't mean I felt or thought the same way the other kids did. Expressing herself could have meant being thrown out of her school.



  88. 88

    This shit is fake!.. fuck rich spoil girl!.. i hate how you try to sound so down to earth..Bitch you were with Paris in school… stop acting like your life was so difficult… your dad bought your record deal… admit it!

    lalala, she's constantly inspired by others.. give me a break .. lol gag

    Having money or being a cute girly girl in high school doesn't mitigate the sensitivity that high school kids feel, because they're ALL self conscious, totally self-absorbed and unsure of their place in the world. It's apparent that the garbage can thing deeply affected her, but you see, it's all about perception. Amongst my old friends, the guys were always throwing one of us (and eachother) into nearby garbage cans as an excuse to physically pick the girl up, and being guys, this is the stupid shit they do, and sometimes even if they like you. A guy friend of mine tapped a girl on the back a little too hard to get her attention (he was in lurve and consumed about her) and she fell and broke her arm. She felt bullied, and he felt heartsick and mortified.



  91. 91

    Re: bluemonarch – it is interesting that u said lina morgana. B/c that is exactly who lady gaga has wanted to assume she is when in fact it was lina morgana who was bullied. This is a direct quote off lady gaga's lying mouth. "I'm telling you a lie in a vicious effort that you will repeat my lie over and over until it becomes true". She lied about bullying as well as being bisexual. She is marketting off both lies. Wake up Perez.



  92. 92

    OMG! What a liar! Could this bitch be MORE FAKE????

    This makes me KNOW that her days are numbered…even her 'little monsters' have to see through all this bullshit.

    From what I hear (and I grew up on 86th street and Lex. and have friends that went to school with Gags, she was a total bitch and liar and is just making this shit up as she goes along. You can tell if you watch her closely…it's like even she doesn't know what she's going to say next.



  93. 93

    i went to high school with stefani and this is a load of shit. she was not bullied at all. in fact i felt she bullied others and was personally very intimidated by her. she was popular and had lots of boyfriends. this is just a way for her to gain fans who can identify with being bullied. i guess its working since she is now the #1 forbes most powerful celebrity but im tired of hearing about it.

    if it`s true those guys were dead on. tranny caca is so full of shit that it should become a national hobby to beat some of it out of her.

    PEOPLE JUST STOP THE HATE THIS IS THE REASON THIS WORLD IS SO FUCK UP IF YOU DON'T THINK IS TRUTH OR HATE HER IS FINE THATS YOUR OPINION BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO INSULT PEOPLE THERE ARE BETTERS WAYS TO SAY I DON'T LIKE YOU. EVEN BETTER BETTER DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WRITING A COMMENT OR CHECKING THIS BLOG BECAUSE THIS ONLY PROVES TO ME THAT YOU ARE JUST BITTER AND YEAH THAT YOU CARE ABOUT GAGA.



  96. 96

    why is every1 being so mean??? shes not playing the victim . . . shes just saying she was bullied!!!



  97. 97

    Yeah, you were bullied a bit; but you're twenty-five now and a world famous popstar. It's time to start moving on with your life.



  98. 98

    Re: 70s-EltonJohn – I really hate to say it, but I agree with you. I know it doesn't make sense, but it's the truth. You should not go around acting crazy and dressing in Halloween costumes unless you want the negative stigma that comes with it. 70's Elton John, there are two types of people in this world: Normal people who go out of their way to be weird, and weird people who go out of their way to be normal. Lady Gaga is the first. Unfortunately, I was the second, ESPECIALLY growing up. And when I mean normal, I don't mean "special", or "popular". For example, when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said that I wanted to work in a cubicle. I never even knew what those people did for the longest time, but I knew that it was a job that a lot of "normal" folks had. Being "special" didn't matter to me, I just wanted be the same as everyone else. And I know that there are plenty of folks out there that feel the same way I did. So it makes me wonder why people like Lady Gaga do this crap, because it makes me relate to her even less than I did before.

    I think she murdered, or had her murdered that Lina Morgana girl. This is an evil bitch into some seriously dark shit. Perez Hilton is as well.
