Lady Gaga’s own parents have jump shipped. Lady Gaga is crazy, we know this, but her own mother Cynthia Germanotta thinks she may actually be mentally insane.
“When Gaga started emerging, when she was performing - I think it was at Joe's Pub downtown - and she was in her bikini performing 'Lady Starlight' and decided that night to ... actually light hairspray on fire,” Cynthia remember one of Gaga’s earlier performances.
Lighting hairspray on-fire was weird? What about cheerio induced orgasms (“Marry The Night” Video), Lady Gaga is a man (Video Music Awards 2011) or Lady Gaga slaughters a cow and wears it (Video Music Awards 2010)
So anyways, Gaga’s own parents think she’s nuts because of the hairspray incident.
“And some people left when that happened,” says Cynthia, “a lot of people stayed and thought it was cool. But her father and I were like, honestly, he said, 'I think she has a screw loose'."
Lady Gaga did an interview with Oprah Winfrey for Oprah’s Next Chapter that will air this Sunday, among the other weird things that Gaga said, she announced she’s basically going mute for a while.
“The newest thing that I do, I don't read a damn thing,” Says Gaga, “No press, no television, no, if my mom calls and says, 'did you hear about?' I don't want to know nothing about anything that is going on in relation to music.”
Gaga also adds, “Other than this interview Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time."
