I think she has a screw loose: Gaga's mom

Lady Gaga's childhood pictures in Oprah Winfrey's two-hour special episode on the pop star, shows her in a different avatar. In one of the pictures, the singer is cradling her newborn sister Natali alongside mum Cynthia. There's an early indication of the Poker Face star's future eccentric approach to fashion in one shot, featuring her pulling a face in an all-in-one black outfit, reports The Sun.

According to The Sun, Gaga's mother Cynthia told Oprah that she was shocked by her daughter's risqué style and antics at the beginning of her career. "Her father and I were like, 'I think she has a screw loose'", she said.

Oprah's documentary on Gaga, in which she was invited inside Gaga's childhood home, was broadcast on the TV titan's OWN network.

Lady Gaga's Born This Way Ball tour which begins with South Korea in April, reaches Indonesia in June. A controversy has already raised its ugly head for the singer. A member of Indonesia's highest Islamic authority has said Muslims should stay away from the upcoming concert by American pop star, who he said aimed to undermine the values of the world's largest Muslim country.

"(The concert is) intended to destroy the nation's morality," said Indonesian Council of Ulema chairman Cholil Ridwan.

Cholil said Lady Gaga's sexy manner of dressing and dance should be considered "un-Islamic".

"She's from the West, and she often shows her private parts while perthforming," he said.

He, however, added that he had never watched the singer perform and only heard of her "reputation" second-hand.

He has urged the 25,000 fans who've already purchased tickets for the June 3 concert to return their tickets. The show sold out in around two hours when tickets went on sale on March 10 this year.
