“What I really want to say is that it is really hard sometimes for women in music. It’s like a f**king boys club that we just can’t get in to,” she said to the audience.

Gaga added, “I tried for so long, I just really wanted to be taken seriously as a musician for my intelligence more than my body ever in this business. You don’t always feel like when you’re working that people believe that you have musical background, that you understand what you’re doing because you’re a female.”

    Maybe if she wasn’t richer then most of the men in the music industry people would maybe believe the load of bull that is coming out of her mouth. She should be one of the least successful in the industry if it is as bad as she pretends.

  • Jay

    She’s talking about respect not money.

  • Arx

    Maybe she’d be more respected if she didnt wear meat and walk around in a thong and sea shells covering her tits… Ive never seen Justin Timberlake portraying himself like that.

  • j b

    No she is making up crap about not getting to the same place in life as the males in the industry.

  • Jenny from the flop

    this bitch is full of shit! during 2008-2009 she kept talking about how she’s a feminist and she can dress however she wants to and its unfair that men can walk shirtless, but that women gets portrayed as whores if they dress sexy… but now she claims she was forced to dress sexy? and lets not forget in 2013 when she said that she never fit into the pop industry as an attempt to excuse her lack of sales lately, however she said in 2008-2009 that pop music was her heart and soul and that she “lived” for pop music and the art of pop, and she indeed made amazing pop songs

    she’s such a pathological liar

  • http://ultimate-phillippe.net/ UltimatePhillippe (Spain)

    Exactly, also it claims to be anorexic and makes jokes saying: ‘The pop stars do not eat’.

    She said ‘I am that woman cares deeply for humanity’, when she used meat and skins for dressed.

    The real only thing in her life is her existence.
    She is a hypocrite.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Exactly!!! She’s full of shit

  • Francesca Simoni

    your rant is pathetic and illogical.

  • Juan S. Camargo Visbal

    Stefani Germanotta had to create a super elaborate persona called Lady Gaga to get a true shot in the music industry, and work hard to maintain that persona to keep ahead. Don’t tell me the above is bullsh*t.

    “I tried for so long, I just really wanted to be taken seriously as a musician for my intelligence more than my body ever in this business.”

    Funny words from someone who was showing her ass on every possible occasion.

    She is reinventing herself because the costume wearing pop singer had gotten old. Love that Prince knows how fake she is.
