Lady Gaga reveals the deep dark secrets that fuel her artistic flame.
Don’t get in Lady Gaga‘s way! She’s out for revenge and may just shoot you down with her machine gun bra from the cover of the July 2010 issue of Rolling Stone. She’s mad about her past and her explosive anger is going to come through loud and clear in her new music. “I’m going to bake a cake that has a bitter jelly,” she tells mag. “The message of the new music is now more bitter than it was before. Because the sweeter the cake, the more bitter the jelly can be.”
Lady Gaga (aka Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) opens up about some very personal details, including her rocky relationship with her father. She describes a recurring nightmare that includes a phantom and a blonde girl bound by ropes. “She’s got my shoes on from the Grammys,” Gaga says. “Go figure — psycho.” But don’t expect Gaga to fully explain what the dream means to her. “You have to be careful about how much you reveal to people that look up to you so much,” she says.
Gaga, 24, also attributes all her success to the heartbreak caused by her ex-boyfriend five years ago. Now that she’s single she says, “sex is certainly not, like, a priority.”
She also says her fans (aka her “little monsters”) mean everything to her. “If I were to ever, God forbid, get hurt onstage and my fans were screaming outside of the hospital, waiting for me to come out, I’d come out as Gaga,” she says.
And where does Gaga get her inspiration to keep going even in difficult circumstances? Why, the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson! “Michael got burned, and he lifted that glittered glove so damn high so his fans could see him, because he was in the art of show business,” Gaga recalls. “That’s what we do. I don’t even drink water onstage in front of anybody, because I want them to focus on the fantasy of the music.”
We can’t wait to find out the name of Gaga’s next album, and now we know how we’ll find out what it is! “I think I’m gonna get the album title tattooed on me and put out the photo,” she says. “I’ve been working on it for months now, and I feel very strongly that it’s finished right now. It came so quickly. Some artists take years; I don’t. I write music every day.”
“When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 24-year-old girl,” she finishes up. “Then I say, ‘Bitch, you’re Lady Gaga, you get up and walk the walk today.’”
