Lady Gaga refused ‘handouts’ from parents during her rise to stardom

HollywoodNews.com: How did Lady Gaga become so big?

She did it all on her own dime.

The singer told the Daily Mail that when she first started her music career, she refused any financial “handouts” that her parents offered. Her experience made her into the strong person she is today.

“It gave me the work ethic I have today and it gave me a feeling that there was something honorable about doing it all myself,” says Gaga.

“When I decided I wanted to be a performer I knew it was a path I would have to carve out on my own

“It wasn’t what my parents wanted, but they supported me in my wishes. I took no money from them. I moved out of home into a tiny apartment in New York. I took jobs waitressing, working in burlesque clubs, waiting in bars… It was tough and it was exciting and it was non-stop, and it was all my own journey.

“If you want something really badly you have to be prepared to put yourself through anything, work your backside off and never stop.”
