Lady Gaga Goes Off In Harper’s Bazaar

Lady Gaga sure knows how to grab our attention, doesn’t she? The pop star dons her now signature horns on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, but it’s this truly titillating look inside the magazine that caught our eye. But the real reason to pick up this issue — or keep reading this post if you don’t want to spend the $3.99 — is the interview. The woman has no interest in canned answers — her responses to some of the questions, on everything from plastic surgery to living in LA, are seriously, well, nutty. Read on for a few of our favorite bits…Oh her obviously prosthetic horns:

“Well, first of all, they’re not prosthetics. They’re my bones. They’ve always been inside of me, but I have been waiting for the right time to reveal to the universe who I truly am. They come out when I’m inspired. We all have these bones! They’re the light from inside of us.”

On whether she’s ever had a nip or a tuck:

“I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification. And how many models and actresses do you see on magazine covers who have brand-new faces and have had plastic surgery, while I myself have never had any plastic surgery? I am an artist, and I have the ability and the free will to choose the way the world will envision me.”

On Alexander McQueen:

“I think he planned the whole thing: Right after he died, I wrote ‘Born This Way.’ I think he’s up in heaven with fashion strings in his hands, marionetting away, planning this whole thing.”

On briefly living in Los Angeles:

“I put my toe in that water, and it was a Kegel-exercise vaginal reaction where I clenched and had to retract immediately,” she says in a very vivid metaphor. “I ran furiously back to New York, to my old apartment, and I hung out with my friends, and I went to the same bars.”

And lastly, here’s what Gaga had to say about fame (which isn’t so nutty):

“You can quote me on this: People love you when they think you won’t be around for very long, and people hate you when they can’t get rid of you. But I’m not going anywhere.”
