LADY GaGa inherited her wild streak from her father.
The Edge of Glory hitmaker — who famously dressed in a gown made of meat and once hatched out of an egg live on stage — explained her dad Joe hired a stripper to teach her the piano and used to enjoy al fresco romps with random women.
“He was having sex with girls under the boardwalk in New Jersey before he went to see Bruce Springsteen,” she said.
“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.’ ”
However, the 25-year-old singer credits her father with “kicking her ass” and helping her to stop using cocaine.
“I was for sure addicted to coke. I got off it because my father called me out and kicked my ass,” she said.
“I didn’t do it with people, I did it alone. But I regret every line I did.”
Despite overcoming her habit, Lady GaGa — real name Stefani Germanotta — confessed to still smoking cannabis on an occasional basis.
“I don’t do weed that often — and I tell the truth about that,” she said.
“I don’t respect artists who aren’t honest about what they do recreationally.”
