Lady Gaga Covers 'Rolling Stone'

Lady Gaga Covers 'Rolling Stone'

Lady Gaga brings back her hair bow on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands Friday (May 27).

Here’s what the 25-year-old Born This Way singer had to share:

On first finding fame: “Being myself in public was very difficult. I was being poked and probed and people would actually touch me and touch my clothes and be like, ‘What the f— is that,’ just so awful. It was like I was being bullied by music lovers, because they couldn’t possibly believe that I was genuine.”

On her fans: “We have this umbilical cord that I don’t want to cut, ever. I don’t feel that they suck me dry. It would be so mean, wouldn’t it, to say, ‘For the next month, I’m going to cut myself off from my fans so I can be a person.’ What does that mean? They are part of my person, they are so much of my person. They’re at least 50 percent, if not more.”

On her message to critics who say her main goal is to attract attention: “Is it that you believe that I am attention-seeking or shock for shock’s sake, or is it just that it’s been a long time since someone has embraced the art form the way that I have? Perhaps it’s been a couple of decades since there’s been an artist that’s been as vocal about culture, religion, human rights, politics. I’m so passionate about what I do, every bass line, every EQ. Why is it that you don’t want more from the artist, why is it that you expect so little, so when I give and give, you assume it’s narcissistic?”

    i think her problem is she makes too many
    declarations about herself, calling herself an icon
    when she’s only been around a few years.
    she should let others judge her place.

    the quote above is a perfcet example of this.

    case in point, madonna didnt really expound or assign
    meaning to things she did, she just did it.
    and she wasn’t all – this is so important.
    she was just like yah, i like sex.
    yah, women rock.
    yah, so i want to put a black jesus in my video, what now?

    She looks much better without those extravagant monstrous prosthetics etc.
    Sadly I listened to the new album and really not feeling it. Most of the songs are alike to begin with and not that good either.
    Very sad hope for something good and new soon though

    She’s so annoying. I used to like her during the just dance/pokerface days, but since then she has become such an attention seeker and rips of the likes of kylie minogue & madonna

    I agree with everybody who’s said she’s so full of herself! She’s become sooo tiresome. The world needs a vacation from her…

    Ray Says:

    REALLY CREATIVE WOMAN have a bad rap in pop music is so awful the way the are treated because if it was a man doing what she does and said i sleep with 600 woman a year people would be like he’s a HERO. But all lady Gaga wants to do is CREATE F****CKING ART people really need to get over themselves & stop slinging MUD AT HER ALL THE TIME she is doing something that she LOVES which unfortunately A MANY PEOPLE ARE NOT!!!!!!!!! SHE IS VERY LUCKY AND BLESSED THAT WAY!!!!!!!!!!

    VICTORIA Says:

    @Ray: Ray, I agree with you a thousand times over. Gaga brought pop music back and creative music videos back.. Music was not fun anymore and the artists became lazy. Gaga is now making the other music artists work. WE ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE A REAL MEGA POP STAR IN THIS GENERATION. I WAS LUCKY TO HAVE PRINCE, WHITNEY HOUSTON, U2 AND MANY MORE IN MY GENERATION. THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS SAYING GAGA WILL SAVE THEM AND THAT’S WHY THEY LOVE HER. SHE’S A GRAMMY AWARD WINNING ARTIST. SHE’S ALREADY PROVEN HERSELF TO HER PEERS. THEY KNOW THAT GAGA IS THE REAL DEAL. WE ALL KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!

    Egocentric delusional mediocre artist.
    If her musics matched all the ~unconventional artsy~ stuff she says and wears maybe music lovers would like her more.

    Sean Says:

    She’s full of it. She sure wasn’t seeking attention in her 1st couple of vids. Just Dance vid, she looks like a normal human being.

    Go away you attention seeking fake !!!!!

    Lol Says:

    I think Ray & Victoria are the same person. Their writing is suspiciously similar. Epic Fail!

    shrine Says:

    I have seen many old photos and videos of Gaga from years past looking like a regular girl. Just look up her appearance on MTV’s old show Boiling Point. If she was always some expressive artist why was this not apparent then? She’s just another unoriginal manufactured pop star attempting to masquerade as original.
