'Suppressed' schoolgirl Lady Gaga
'Poker Face' singer Lady Gaga, who is renowned for her risque outfits, was teased at school for experimenting with fashion

Lady Gaga had to "suppress" herself during her schooldays.
The 'Poker Face' singer - famed for her outrageous dress sense - liked to experiment with fashion when she was younger but was mocked by her peers so felt she could no longer express herself through clothes.
She said: "When I was at high school, I had to wear a uniform but I always bent the rules, by pulling my skirt up or shirt down and was told I was being too provocative.
"When we had off-days where we didn't have to wear uniforms, I used to wear my outfits and I would really get made fun of. It lost me my self-confidence and I suppressed myself for a while."
The 'Let's Dance' also revealed her mother helped pick out her outfits and was happy to buy her unusual items of clothing.
She said: "My mom helped me express myself and she'd come home with items such as Spandex, air brush T-shirts, bright coloured visors and all things other people wouldn't wear."
