Lady Gaga’s recent accomplishments include having more “fans” on Facebook than any other living human. She crushed the 10,000,000 mark earlier this year, surpassing President Barack Obama. Not bad for a 24-year-old diva. Although far less exclusive, but obviously impressive, she can add the cover and interview with the venerable Vanity Fair magazine.
It’s not surprising that the majority of blogs and mainstream media focuses on re-reporting that she admits to using cocaine “occasionally.” By her own account, prior to her fame, Lady Gaga was an addicted mess that did “bags and bags of cocaine” until her father confronted her.
On a more interesting note, the Vanity Fair interview reveals that Lady Gaga admits to being “perpetually lonely” despite her global success. “I’m lonely when I’m in relationships,” she says. “It’s my condition as an artist.” That statement might be the truest one in there. Most of The 27s suffered creative burns that manifested themselves in loneliness and/or bad relationships.
Lady Gaga’s conversation with Vanity Fair continued. “I’m drawn to bad romances. And my song [Bad Romance] is about whether I go after those [sorts of relationships] or if they find me.
“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me.” Consequently, she says, “I’m quite celibate now; I don’t really get time to meet anyone.”
