Lady Gaga's known for her candor, so what kind of a transparent pop star would she be if she didn't curse and talk openly about her love life in her Vanity Fair interview? During her shoot, Gaga posed nude for her "Lady Is A Tramp" collaborator Tony Bennett (?!) and admitted that her true place of happiness is when she sees a fan smile. Read below as Gaga invites us into her world of unending fame, staggering talent and crippling heartache.
+ On her past relationships: "I have never felt truly cherished by a lover. I have an inability to know what happiness feels like with a man... It's a hideous place to be in when someone that you love has convinced you that you will never be good enough for anyone. I had a man say to me, 'You will die alone in a house bigger than you know, with all your money and hit records, and you will die alone.'"
+ On how she feels whens she's not onstage: "When I'm onstage, I'm so giving and so open and myself. And when the spotlight goes off, I don’t know quite what to do with myself."
+ On being proposed to after she's left a few men: “How f***in' romantic, you a**hole. Sure, pop a ring on my finger and make it all better. I can buy myself a f***in' ring."
+ On women's rights: "The problem is not women being irresponsible. The problem is everyone being irresponsible… How can you deny a woman the right to choose [whether or not] to have a child? It's completely outrageous."
+ On her "autobiographical" "Marry The Night" video: "Getting ready to relive the worst day of my life... It's chaotic and sad. But I don't want it to be safe."
See, guys. Even Lady Gaga, unofficial QUEEN OF THE WORLD, has jerk ex-boyfriends. They're inescapable!
