Lady Gaga covers the latest issue of NME magazine and boy does she sound pissed.
On her critics saying she's all spectacle, she says, "If you want me to be a manufactured act, you can fuck off ... If you fucking rip my hairbow and my wig off my fucking head, my shoes, my bra, every single thing on my body, and you throw me on a piano with a microphone, I will fucking make you cry.”
Gaga feels she's misunderstood, that people are seeking the answer to a question that is staring them right in the face.
"I feel I have been probed endlessly about who the fuck I am,” she says. “I have been quite open about it. And still nobody seems to have a clue ... Who are you looking for? I’m right here. Stefani is also who I am. Gaga is my nickname. It’s like when you’re a kid and your mom calls you ‘Skip.’ I really make no separation between Stefani and Gaga.”
Oh. Well that's it! Forgive us for thinking Stefani got lost in the meat dress or the big egg.
Gaga's a great artist who no doubt has the musical chops to back up a lot of what she does. Yes, she can play the piano and yes she can sing. We're sure she can do a whole bunch of other great things musically. But when you put the spectacle front and center, don't be mad when that's all people want to focus on. It just comes with the territory.
