Lady Gaga and Her Mother, Cynthia

Oprah travels to New York City to give the world its first look inside the apartment Lady Gaga grew up in and still calls home. And for the first time ever, Gaga's mother, Cynthia, breaks her silence on what it's like to be the mom of one of the most famous—and controversial—pop stars on the planet. Oprah tours the living room and sees the spot where Gaga used to practice singing like her idol, Whitney Houston. Gaga also reveals the difficult creative process she goes through each time she writes a new song, and opens up about love, marriage and motherhood. Then, Gaga gives Oprah the inside story of the famous meat dress and her alter ego, Jo Calderone.

Plus, Oprah, Gaga and Cynthia meet up at Harvard University to launch the Born This Way Foundation, Gaga's charitable endeavor—a project that she believes is the most important work of her life.
