Lady Gaga wants to touch herself...on the cover of her album that is. Miss Gaga is Elle magazine's January cover girl and in the issue she talks about being her work being like art, how she used to be a waitress and her sexuality.
Here are some highlights from the magazine, which is out on newsstands now!
Lady Gaga on a recurring theme in her work:
“I feel that if I can show my demise artistically to the public, I can somehow cure my own legend. I can show you so you’re not looking for it. I’m dying for you on domestic television—here’s what it looks like, so no one has to wonder.”
Gaga on being a former waitress:
“I was really good at it. I always got big tips. I always wore heels to work! I told everybody stories, and for customers on dates, I kept it romantic. It’s kind of like performing.”
Gaga on using her sexuality:
“My album covers are not sexual at all, which was an issue at my record label. I fought for months, and I cried at meetings. They didn’t think the photos were commercial enough…The last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself.”
Gaga on her romantic future: “In eight to 10 years, I want to have babies for my Dad to hold, grandkids. And I want to have a husband who loves and supports me, just the way anyone else does. I would never leave my career for a man right now, and I would never follow a man around.”
