Go Inside Lady Gaga’s New York City Apartment With MTV

Mother Monster invites Sway Calloway for tea inside her Manhattan crib.

Judging from her decadent couture, intricate stage shows and the fact that she once rolled around on this, Lady Gaga‘s gotta have one hell of a home, right?

We’d say so.

As part of her MTV Takeover on Friday (April 4) —which takes place all day on MTV, MTV Hits and Logo TV — the Mother Monster invited MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway into her New York City apartment for an afternoon tea before her Thursday-night gig at Roseland Ballroom.

And as you’d expect from a place previously inhabited by Liza Minnellli and Tony Bennett, it’s a pretty nice place.

But the best part wasn’t the swanky chandelier or plush sofa, but rather the rooftop view overlooking Central Park.

“The most important thing to me about this place is I can come out here and stand outside. That’s the best thing. I miss going outside,” she told Sway, saying she often has to go outside in disguise. “Such is life, I’m blessed in many ways.”

Well we can’t argue with that. Gaga also showed off one of the many gifts she gets from her Little Monsters — a gold-plated rose from her “sweet” fan Sam, who often waits outside her hotel to give her gifts.

That’s not all she’ll be showing us. All day on Friday, Gaga will regularly break into programming on MTV, MTV Hits and Logo TV to take fans behind her Roseland Ballroom residency, showing behind the scenes footage of show rehearsals. Additionally, fans will be able to check out the exclusive content via her MTV Artist page, as well MTV and Logo’s various social channels.

Viewers will also hear news about Lady Gaga’s upcoming worldwide tour artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball, which kicks off in Florida on May 4 and just had an additional six dates added to accommodate sales. In addition to the tour, gaga will discuss her current ARTPOP single, “G.U.Y.”
