Nicole Richie Channels Lady GaGa in 'BlackBook'

The always fashionable Nicole Richie channeled her inner Lady GaGa in the new issue of Blackbook Magazine.

Rocking out in designer duds, the reality show star turned fashion designer talks about her rise to fame, not reading tabloids, and never being engaged? Wasn't she engaged to DJ AM?!

Here are some highlights from the interview:

On her rise to fame with the show The Simple Life: “Listen, I watch television. I know that things have to be entertaining or else people aren’t going to watch it. The producers were very clear about the characters they wanted us to be. We were fine with it... Entertaining is something that I wanted to do since I was 3 years old."

On not keeping up with celebrity tabloid magazines: “We don’t allow tabloids in our house, so we really don’t know about anything unless it is serious.”

On whether she's still friends with Paris Hilton: “Yes. We’re friends. We’ve known each other since we were little.”

On being married or engaged to Joel Madden: “I’ve never been engaged.”

On her fashion line House of Harlow 1960: “I’ve always loved fashion,” she says. “And like any girl, especially in her 20s, you change. I experiment with fashion. I have been picking up pieces of jewelry since I was younger, so I have a whole collection to work off.”
