Lady G poses nude on the cover and talks relationships, lonliness and occasional drug use in the explosive new interview
Lady Gaga has posed nude in a series of sizzling snaps for Vanity Fair, wearing nothing more than a diamond choker and seriously long, powdery grey locks for the risqué shots.
The music star’s sensational shots are set to appear in the September issue of the upmarket magazine, in which she talks relationships, loneliness, and who helped her when she hit rock bottom.
On relationships, the single star admitted she’s drawn to ‘bad romances’, the basis of her hit song,
I’m drawn to bad romances. And my song [“Bad Romance”] is about whether I go after those [sort of relationships] or if they find me,’ she said. ‘I’m quite celibate now; I don’t really get time to meet anyone.’
Despite being surrounded by people Gaga revealed she still often feels lonely.
‘I’m perpetually lonely. I’m lonely when I’m in relationships. It’s my condition as an artist,’ she said.
But on hitting rock bottom, it was her family – her grandmother, in particular – she turned to for support.
‘I cried. I told her I thought my life was over and I have no hope and I’ve worked so hard, and I knew I was good. What would I do now?’ And she said, “I’m gonna let you cry for a few more hours. And then after those few hours are up, you’re gonna stop crying, you’re gonna pick yourself up, you’re gonna go back to New York, and you’re gonna kick some ass.”’
In the no-holds-barred chat, Gaga also opened up on her occasional drug use, revealing she sometimes still takes some cocaine. ‘I won’t lie; it’s occasional. And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year.’
But she was quick to warn others not to follow in her footsteps.
‘I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way. I don’t want my fans to think they have to be that way to be great.’
