Lady Gaga has been accused of shedding crocodile tears, after sobbing on camera that she was treated like the “loser kid” at a posh New York school.
“I still sometimes feel like a loser kid in high school,” Lady Gaga said. “I’m fighting for every kid that’s like me, that felt like I felt and feels like I still feel.”
However, former students of the prestigious Convent of the Sacred Heart, which Lady Gaga attended, in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, say they can’t recall the torment she describes.
“We had a mutual friend during our freshman year at NYU, and Stefani always struck me as a confident girl who liked to party, but was also very devoted to her music.”, said one of them.
“A few of my friends went to Sacred Heart (around Stefani’s year), have a great amount of appreciation for the time they spent there, and cannot recall the bullying she brings up in interviews. I like her music and shtick, but lately, she’s been relying a lot on being a victim of bullying – which just does not jive with any of my experiences, or with anyone I know who went to school with her.”
Another forum user, who said he dated girls from Gaga’s school, concurred. ‘Brunno’, said it was far from being “strict”, adding: “There is no heavy indoctrination, no nuns whacking people with rulers, etc. It pretty much defied every stereotype of the Catholic school. Her description of it that I heard was complete BS.”
Brunno said an ex-girlfriend’s cousin attended the school. “She says that, while Gaga wasn’t part of the ‘in-crowd’, she was certainly not an outcast or, at least to her knowledge, ever treated as such.”
