Oh My Gaga! The usually self-assured and body-barring Lada Gaga completely breaks down backstage during a scene from her forthcoming HBO special. Tissues up, everybody. 

The black and white footage captures the singer at her makeup table, talking about how she can be filled with self doubt even at the height of her fame:

"I still sometimes feel like a loser kid in high school and I just have to pick myself up and tell myself that I'm a superstar every morning so that I can get through this day and be for my fans what they need for me to be ... I'm fighting for every kid that's like me, that felt like I felt and feels like I still feel."
The candid and emotional outburst is only tempered by a few of her pals backstage, who consoul her as the tears flow freely. 

To snap herself out of it, she says a prayer:

"Please give me strength to be a winner for all of them and not myself... Please help me to be strong and know my own strength. Please help me to be brave, Lord. Dear God, give me courage. Do not let me give in to my own insecurities."

    Surprise, Lady Gaga is a human with feelings. I'm tired of people who say kids who are bullied will "grow out of it" or "get over it". That's simply not the case, it stays with you for a very long time. Even my mother, with a successful career for over 20 years and supportive family, still remembers how she was bullied in school because of her height.

    I'm not even a big Lady Gaga fan, but Its amazing how much she appreciates and returns the support her fans give her.
