Lady Gaga speaks on Iron Maiden, saying “They’re one of the greatest rock bands in history, in my opinion”
Life is a red carpet.
Listen, I’ve got the sickest ambition.
Even if the whole world turns their back on you, you’ll always have yourself.
Fight and push harder for what you believe in, you’d be surprised, you are much stronger than you think.
I was performing in New York and my friends started to call me Gaga. They said I was very theatrical. So they said, you’re Gaga.
I had this dream and I really wanted to be a star. I was almost a monster in the way that I was fearless with my ambitions.
On her song, Poker Face: I do like women. I’ve only been in love with men. I’ve never been in love with a woman, but that’s really what the song is all about, why when I was with my boyfriend, was I fantasizing about women.
That I am artificial and attention-seeking, when the truth is that, every bit of me is devoted to love and art.
If you dont have any shadows, you’re not standing in the light.
You define beauty for yourself, society doesn’t define your beauty. Your spirit and your faith defines your beauty.
You have to be unique and different to shine in your own way.
If I decide to make a coat red in the show, it's not just red, I think: is it communist red? Is it cherry cordial? Is it ruby red? Or is it apple red? Or the big red balloon red?
I don't think I could live without hair, makeup and styling, let alone be the performer I am. I am a glamour girl through and through. I believe in the glamorous life and I live one.
Being beautiful is not so fun when you're in a business with all men.
I've been actually really very pleased to see how much awareness was raised around bullying, and how deeply it affects everyone. You know, you don't have to be the loser kid in high school to be bullied. Bullying and being picked on comes in so many different forms.
What I've discovered is that in art, as in music, there's a lot of truth-and then there's a lie. The artist is essentially creating his work to make this lie a truth, but he slides it in amongst all the others. The tiny little lie is the moment I live for, my moment. It's the moment that the audience falls in love.
Fashion is that thing that saved me from being sad.
I don't want to make money; I want to make a difference.
I had this dream, and I really wanted to be a star. And I was almost a monster in the way that I was really fearless with my ambitions.
I love my daddy. My daddy's everything. I hope I can find a man that will treat me as good as my dad.
'Born this Way' is about being yourself, and loving who you are and being proud.
The only big things I've purchased are my dad's heart valve and a Rolls-Royce for my parents, for their anniversary. And that was only because my dad had a Lady Gaga license plate on our old car and it was making me crazy because he was getting followed everywhere, so I bought him a new car.
I feel like if you're a really good human being, you can try to find something beautiful in every single person, no matter what.
