Lady Gaga is a warrior, the pop star tells Elle magazine in its October issue. But Stefani Germanotta? That's a different story.
"Wait a minute," you're probably thinking. "I thought Stefani Germanotta is Lady Gaga?"
Yes and no.
As Gaga explains, "I am - Stefani is - a perpetually tortured artist. That's why I changed my name," she tells Elle. "I can't be her in public. She would be a mess!"
The Mother Monster, on the other hand, is cool and calm under pressure - so unfazed she doesn't even realize when it's there.
"What are you talking about, pressure?" Gaga asks. "I'm great under pressure. I'm a warrior. I'm Rocky, round 12."
She can probably credit that toughness for helping her survive in the industry, seeing that for every fan she's attracted, there's someone else who's a critic.
"Everyone is so cynical," Gaga says of the detractors. "I can't purely love my fans, or share an honest story about my past, without someone asking me if I really, truly struggled. Do you know how much dirt I ate? Do you know the men I had to crawl through, the people that disrespected my body, my mind, my heart?"
If there's anyone who understands what it's like to have haters - at least at this very moment - it's Miley Cyrus. In Gaga's eyes, the sniping is unfounded.
"I just think everybody needs to lighten up and leave her alone," Gaga told Bravo's Andy Cohen on Wednesday's "Watch What Happens Live." "It's pop music. Everybody's entitled to their own artistic expression, and if you have a problem with it, just change the channel."
Too, Gaga continued, Cyrus' critics should consider that she's only 20 years old and is likely still refining her artistic point of view.
"She's growing up in front of the entire world, and maybe she's not so happy with the things she did in her career when she was younger and she wants to be free," Gaga said. "So let her do what she wants."
Gaga's full interview with Elle magazine arrives on newsstands September 24.
hola confeatumadre del uv con oso al culo con oyo caliente te viole con el oyo abril lavigne y te lo folle con lainon
Just a weird chick with weird hair. And her " music " is total garbage.
Stefani Germanotta is the one with REAL Talent Lady Gaga is just a doll that wears wigs to hide that she has real good talent
a lion would never act like a bimbo
caught the phone hacks at 847am...report her as abuse...illegal hacking--
She's going to have a hell of a time trying to brush my corn studded poop from her hair.
She needs prayer Lady Gaga! I took your word she will rebound, but She needs God even I love your music! :D
Woo she is odd. Not as creepy as Miley Curus tho.
Narcissism is alive and well
Careful, the Chinese might pick her up and try to pass her off as a lion!
Anyone who speaks about themselves in the third person has issues in my opinion. I think Stefanie is a very intelligent woman. Not many people can plan and plot fame and then actually achieve it like she did, however I have always said I find her music to be VERY safe and not at all in tune with her visual appearance. If you wanna dress like a freak, please accompany it with freaky music and not some 90's Christina wannabe sound.
Why is there a picture of the cowardly lion from Wizard Of Oz up when it's a Lady Gaga article??? Oh wait....
Lol! It does look like him. I think the lion is cuter, tho. :)
She don't look half bad without the heavy makeup. Somebody should buy her a brush for that mane, though. lol...
She's like what half lion, half Gwen Stefani would look like.
too become that....ever......we will let him go because he is stuck ...he never shows up on the que
you and the other bimbo do.....flush this bimbo
