Celebrity Gossip: Lady Gaga 'quit drugs after being caught by her father '

Lady Gaga has revealed that she quit drugs after her dad caught her doing some in his house. The 25-year-old pop superstar is very open about having abused drugs while trying to find herself as a struggling musician playing in New York clubs. "I just was partying and being very self-indulgent and trying to find myself," she told fashion icon Jean Paul Gaultier in a TV interview. "And in hindsight it's so dangerous - I really don't encourage anyone to follow that path," she said. But it was the embarrassment of her family finding out in a very dramatic way that made her quit drugs on the spot. "I actually was doing drugs in my parents' house one day and they didn't know I was in the bathroom," she recalled. "And I came out and my father could tell. And I just remember feeling so embarrassed and I quit instantly. "I care so much what my father thinks. I'm very old-fashioned Italian in that way. It was pretty instant." She insists she does not miss her drug years. "Over the years I've realised that the joy and euphoria I experience in the relationship with my fans is so much greater than any drug could be," she insisted.
