With all of her different personalities, it's hard to believe that Lady Gaga is ever alone, but apparently, she is.
In an interview in Haper's Bazaar, Gaga says the crazy schedule that comes with her blossoming career often leaves her spending a lot of time solo.
"When you're alone as much as I am, you become accustomed to your solitude and embrace it. I work about 16 to 20 hours a day. And when I'm alone, I write, I imagine, I create things, and I decide how I want to do my future performances. I don't take much time off."
So basically, she's robot that doesn’t eat, sleep, or drink. That sounds about right.
And as far as all the crazy costumes and stunts, Gaga says it's all a part of her art:
"I don't really view it as 'natural'. I think that artifice is the new reality. It's more about just being honest and sincere to the core of what you do. I think what has been lovely about my relationship with the public is that they expect something unexpected from me."
Yeah, but mostly we just want to hear your songs and wish you would stop talking about how unique and special you are. The Jo Calderone thing was interesting for about five minutes, and then we all collectively thought, "When did Ralph Machcio get so annoying?"
Gaga opted to go natural for the magazine cover, with her face totally makeup-free. And she looks fine--like a completely different human being, but fine. I want this woman's makeup artist. Gaga says she's just as comfortable taking it all off as she is dressing up.
"I'm very free-spirited. Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy."
Lady Gaga has recently joined forces with other influential pop stars to create the "I will" 9/11 remembrance campaign. This Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the attack, and to commemorate it, Viacom has created the PSA that includes Gaga, Nas, Pauly D, Fran Drescher, and Julianne Hough.
"We were in disbelief," Gaga says, remembering the events in 2001. "We all watched the second tower fall together."
Drescher says, "I was mortified by what I was seeing."
Pauly D recalls: "You almost feel a sense of helplessness…I will call all my family members on that day."
The celebs then ask, "What will you do this September 11th?"
The public service campaign is meant to inspire people to do good deeds, specifically like volunteering or donating to the red cross.
