The `Judas` singer had a very religious upbringing and while she was told to worship Jesus and God, Gaga chose to confide in females because she`s always been a feminist.
She told Popjustice: "When I was young and I went to Catholic school - an all girls` school - we were told to pray to God and pray to Jesus, but I always prayed to women. I guess I always worshipped a more feminine force in my life and I didn`t view God as having a particular gender. I always either prayed to Mother Mary or Mary Magdelene, or to my father`s sister Joanne who had died when he was a kid because I viewed her as an angel in the sky in the house of the Kingdom working alongside God. You know, watching over me.
"It must be so big up there. A lot of people. So I always prayed to women and that`s the thing that I look to now to make me strong in this very unique situation that is being a pop singer. I always pray to Mary and to Joanne."
Gaga says women such as Mother Mary and Mary Magdelene have inspired her throughout her life because they taught her what it-s like to be brave.
She said: "It`s very sad that in those Biblical times women were stoned for adultery or for doing inappropriate things. Women were always the target, so I guess I looked to my past and my faith to find bravery in myself."
