Lady Gaga is a personality that we want to know more and more about. She is funny and witty, talented and picturesque. Her interviews are often shocking but they are never boring. In the one for Rolling Stone June 2011 edition she says she feels dead off stage and it is time when she is performing that she feels alive. She has also shared on her relation to fans, ‘Little Monsters’ as she calls them.
Read the highlights from Lady Gaga’s interview for Rolling Stone June 2011:
Lady Gaga on being dead and alive on and off stage: ‘When I am not onstage I feel dead. Whether that is healthy or not to you, or healthy or not to anyone, or a doctor, is really of no concern to me. I don’t feel alive unless I’m performing, and that’s just the way I was born.”
Lady Gaga on attitude to 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.”
Lady Gaga on how difficult it was to prove the public her behavior was genuine: ‘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**k 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.”
Lady Gaga on rumors she is just an attention-seeker: ‘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?”
