Lady Gaga opened up on Howard Stern’s radio show how her father Joe once hired an exotic dancer to teach his daughter to play piano.
Really? My mom hired some 60 year old, smelly Russian lady with a mustache. So I quit because I definitely did not want to someday look like her. Damn it, MOM! I could have been a maestro!
