I wouldn’t want to inspire other people to do the same,” Lady GaGa said. “I discovered a real personal freedom through it … I was drawing huge crowds, setting hairspray alight on stage and dancing madly … I have a strong sense of my own sexuality.

Eve once worked as an exotic dancer. "Rappers talk about drug dealing before they made it and it's not a big thing, but me stripping is?" she told Rolling Stone. "Come on. That was a hustle, too; there's a song about it on my album, 'Heaven Only Knows.' But I don't regret it - I was 18 and confused, going through personal problems. I did it for about a month, and I was glad I did it. It helped me find Eve, helped me get serious. It was depressing - a lot of those girls have three or four kids. I'd sit there and be like, 'Eve, you don't belong here, this is not your world.'"
