A glamorous life is quite different to a life
of luxury. I dont need luxury. For years, I was practically
broke but I was still very vain and glamorous. And I still am. Lady Gaga
Lupus is in my family, its genetic. Its funny
because my mother told me the other day that my fans are worried
because I did talk about the fact that I was tested for lupus.
The truth is I dont have any signs or symptoms of lupus
but I have tested borderline positive for the disease. As
of right now, I do not have it, but I have to take good care
of myself. Lady Gaga Revealing she underwent medical medical
tests for lupus, a deadly disease that runs in her family, June,
Michaels death was devastating for me regardless of
whether or not I was supposed to go on tour with him. He is
such an inspiration and remarkable human being. Lady Gaga On death of Michael Jackson whom she was
asked to open for at The 02, in interview on Larry King Live.
I don't want to sound presumptuous, but I've made it my goal

by Madonna 25 years ago. Lady Gaga
Im single right now and Ive chosen to be single
because I dont have the time to get to know anybody.
So its okay not to have sex, its okay to get to
know people. Im celibate. Celibacys fine. Lady Gaga April 12, 2010.
When youre in the public eye, youre a role model
whether you want to be or not, and I want to be. Im
not one of those self-obsessed artists who dont care
about their fans. Its not just about the music. I look
out into the O2 and there are 18,000 screaming young people
and I have a responsibility to them and youre
an idiot if you dont know that. Lady Gaga April 12, 2010.
The turning point for me was the gay community. I've got
so many gay fans and they're so loyal to me and they really
lifted me up. They'll always stand by me and I'll always stand
by them. It's not an easy thing to create a fanbase. Lady Gaga
Paris and Nicky Hilton went to my school. They're very pretty,
and very, very clean. It's impressive to be that perfect all
the time. In commercial terms, they've been quite an influence
on me. Lady Gaga
I am really inspired by the Italians like Gabbana, Versace
and Gucci. But I am looking it in that way and trying to make
my own. Lady Gaga Asked which fashion trends she enjoys.
Writing a record is like dating a few men at once. You take
them to the same restaurants to see if they measure up, and
at some point you decide who you like best. When you make
music or write or create, its really your job to have
mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever
idea it is youre writing about at the time. Lady Gaga
Some artists want your money so they can buy Range Rovers
and diamond bracelets, but I don't care about that kind of
stuff. I want your soul. Lady Gaga
I want your ugly, I want your disease
I want your everything as long as it's free
I want your love, love love. Lady Gaga From her song, Bad Romance.
I want your drama, the touch of your hand,
I want your leather studded kiss in the scene. Lady Gaga From her song, Bad Romance.
I can't help myself,
I'm addicted to a life of material. Lady Gaga From her song, The Fame.
All we care about is runway models
Cadillacs and liquor bottles
Give me something I wanna be
Retro glamour Hollywood, yes, we live for the
Fame, doin' it for the fame Lady Gaga From her song, The Fame.
I'm obsessively opposed to the typical. Lady Gaga From her song, The Fame.
Baby, you'll be famous, chase you down until you love me
Papa, paparazzi. Lady Gaga
From her song, Paparazzi.
I wanna just dance, but he took me home instead.
Uh oh, there was a monster in my bed. Lady Gaga From her song, Monster.
'Cause it's a hard life, with love in the world,
And I'm a hard girl,
Loving me is like chewing on pearls. Lady Gaga From her song, I Like It Rough.
Find your freedom in the music
Find your Jesus, find your Cupid. Lady Gaga From her song, Dance In The Dark.
Just know when
That glass is empty
That the world is gonna bend
Happy in the club with a bottle of red wine
Stars in our eyes 'cuz we're having a good time
So happy I could die
Be your best friend
Yeah I'll love you forever
Up in the clouds
We'll be higher than ever
So happy I could die
And it's alright. Lady Gaga From her song, So Happy I Could Die.
Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic
Got my blueprint, it's symphonic

Got my blueprint electronic. Lady Gaga From her song, Dance Up.
Raise a glass to mend all the broken hearts
Of all my wrecked up friends. Lady Gaga From her song, Speechless.
I'll never love again, oh boy, you've left me speechless. Lady Gaga From her song, Speechless.
At this point I've gotta choose,
Nothing to lose. Lady Gaga From her song, Alejandro.
Some women choose to follow a man and some others their dreams.
In case that you wonder which way to follow, remember that your
career won't wake up one morning to say that he doesn't love
you. Lady Gaga
Do you know the feeling,when your heart is so hurt, that
you could feel the blood dreeping? Lady Gaga
I used to go-go dance and set G-strings on fire stuff
like that. Ive changed my act a little now but its
definitely still provocative. It began as more of a burlesque
show. Not nudity but more the art of the tease and hairspray
on stage and setting things on fire - definitely shock art.
Those days will be back soon, dont worry! I really miss
it sometimes. My father came to see shows when I was in leather
thongs and didnt understand. He couldnt look at
me for a few months. But when he saw me getting better, he
saw that my ideas were getting stronger. Now my father cries. Lady Gaga
A girl's got to use what she's given and I'm not going to
make a guy drool the way a Britney video does. So I take it
to extremes. I don't say I dress sexily on stage - what I
do is so extreme. It's meant to make guys think: 'I don't
know if this is sexy or just weird.' Lady Gaga
My grandmother is basically blind, but she can make out the
lighter parts, like my skin and hair. She says, "I can
see you, because you have no pants on." So I`ll continue
to wear no pants so that my grandma can see me. Lady Gaga
