Pop siren Lady Gaga is a committed singer that everyone knows but she always wanted to make it big in the music world without ‘handouts’. The independent beauty revealed that she even refused to take money from her parents at the start of her career because she was focussed to achieve the peak of success on her own.    
 
The ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker who enjoyed a comfortable family life growing up in New York, attending an exclusive private school moved out of home to seek success as a singer on the city's club scene.
 
The 24-year old singing sensation admitted that she faced financial crisis in the start of her musical journey.
 
"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," she said.
 
"It gave me the work ethic I have today and it gave me a feeling that there was something honourable about doing it all myself with no handouts. If you want something really badly you have to be prepared to put yourself through anything, work your backside off and never stop," she added.
