Lady Gaga’s Poses Nude For Vanity Fair
Lady Gaga covers the September issue of Vanity Fair and in her interesting interview discusses drugs, mental issues, and her current relationship. Read more of what Gaga had to say below.
Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, opens up to Vanity Fair about her drug use that consists of “mostly cocaine”.
The singer, 24, said of doing drugs, “I won’t lie; it’s occasional,” she reveals in the magazine. “And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year.”
But Lady Gaga doesn’t want her fans to think doing drugs is a good idea. Gaga says, “I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way,” says the singer. “I don’t want my fans to think they have to be that way to be great. It’s in the past. It was a low point, and it led to disaster.”
At one point, Gaga said she hit a very low point.
“I was completely mental and had just been through so much,” she says of the incident.
Lady wouldn’t reveal exactly what happened but said, “I hit rock bottom, and it was enough to send a person over the edge. My mother knew the truth about that day, and she screamed so loud on the other end of the phone, I’ll never forget it. And she said, ‘I’m coming to get you.’”
Instead of rehab Gaga went to her grandmother’s home in West Virginia. “I cried,” Gaga recalls. “I told her I thought my life was over and I have no hope and I’ve worked so hard, and I knew I was good. What would I do now? And she said, ‘I’m gonna let you cry for a few more hours. And then after those few hours are up, you’re gonna stop crying, you’re gonna pick yourself up, you’re gonna go back to New York, and you’re gonna kick some a–.’”
“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina.”
Lady Gaga talks about her personal relationships:
“I’m perpetually lonely. I’m lonely when I’m in relationships. It’s my condition as an artist.. I’m drawn to bad romances. And my song ["Bad Romance"] is about whether I go after those [sort of relationships] or if they find me. I’m quite celibate now; I don’t really get time to meet anyone.”
Lady Gaga even touched on her Yankee Stadium episode, where she obviously pissed off comedian Jerry Seinfeld.
“Of course I got drunk at Yankee Stadium,” she explains of her behavior.
But Gaga isn’t too worried about the incident stating, “My real fans know who I truly am, and they know what I represent and what I mean, and my music and my performance is what really speaks.”
