Her lowest point came when she was thrown in a rubbish bin by three boys while their girlfriends watched.
Gaga tells the Guardian Weekend magazine, "I'm eccentric and talkative and audacious and theatrical, and I used to get picked on. I got thrown in a trash can on a street corner once by some boys who were hanging out with girls in my class.
"I got profanity written all over my locker at school and all the others were nice and clean. I got pinched in the hallways and called a slut... (When they put me in the trash can I felt) worthless. Embarrassed. Mortified. I was 14. Three boys put me in it. The girls were laughing when they did it."
