Well since I don't know them personally, all I know is what I've read in magazines and such.
Lady Starlight is one of Lady Gaga's best friends. They did a song called "Fancy Pants" together, which Starlight sings the majority of. And yes, Gaga *did* drop out of NYU after like, her first year because she thought she knew more than the teachers did, and didn't need it. She lived in her own apartment in NYC and spent every dime she had on cocaine, and got addicted to it. She'd do it while sitting in front of her mirror, applying makeup, and listening to The Cure (which is an amazing band from Britain) and I believe the song she mainly listened too by them was called "Never Enough" or something like that.
