Lady Gaga found life as a go-go dancer "liberating"

Before Lady Gaga became a household name, she used to work as a go-go dancer and she describes the experience as "liberating".

The 25-year-old told Elle magazine that it was "exciting" for her:

"It's quite exhilarating to dress in your underwear and have men coo over you all night. It's quite liberating, if you're into that sort of thing...Some people don't like it but for me, I was getting paid to perform so I was very excited".

She used to dance so she could earn money to fund her up-and-coming singing career:

"I was getting 400 bucks a night, so I could go to Kinko's and get the expensive paper and get it laser-printed and make nice flyers, not like the ones everyone else had. And get my demo tapes copied".

The pop icon released the video for her new single, 'Marry The Night', last night and it captures how important dancing is to her.
