If the nuns could see me now

Lady Gaga, a 23-year-old singer/song-writer from Yonkers, NY, who is famed for her outrageous and revealing get-ups, doesn't think teachers at New York's Convent of the Sacred Heart Catholic school would be offended by the way she expresses herself, according to a Bang Media article recently posted online. "I haven't had any feedback from the nuns," says the young artist who was born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. "But it's interesting because I think everyone assumes that because I went to such a religious school perhaps they don't appreciate what I'm doing now. But it is quite the opposite.

"I got a really solid education, in particular how to analyze art, how to make art. So if anything, my teachers are sort of nodding their heads and saying, 'She did a good job of using her artistic abilities to really create a new kind of pop.'"

Hmm...it would be interesting to hear from some Sacred Heart sisters just to confirm their thoughts on the matter. But in the meantime, it's nice to know Lady Gaga appreciates the education she received at their hands.
