Lady Gaga Discusses The Yankees, Loneliness And Ladybits In ‘Vanity Fair’

You’d think that by having more friends than the President, Lady Gaga would feel surrounded by love and adoration at all times. But in the September issue of British Vanity Fair, the pop star tells a different story. “I’m perpetually lonely,” the cover girl tells the magazine. “I’m lonely when I’m in relationships. It’s my condition as an artist… I’m drawn to bad romances.” After the jump, Gaga opens up about hitting rock bottom, being a lifelong die-hard Yankees fan, and, because you know you want to know, her vagina. (Maybe if she had brought up her female genitalia in interviews earlier, those pesky penis rumors wouldn’t have persisted.) Quotes below.

“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina,” Gaga tells the magazine. “I’m quite celibate now; I don’t really get time to meet anyone.”

These recent photos of her being cute-and-kissy with alleged on-again boyfriend Luc Carl indicate that her celibate phase might have already passed. And although she admits to continuing to use cocaine “a couple times a year”, it appears her hardcore drug era is completely over.

“I was completely mental and had just been through so much,” Gaga says about her former drug use. “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. It’s in the past. It was a low point, and it led to disaster… All I will say is I hit rock bottom, and it was enough to send a person over the edge.”

And because people actually care about the non-controversy of Gaga getting riled up at a baseball game (which evoked the wrath of Jerry Seinfeld), Gaga comments on her bird flippage:

“I guess I was my true New York 24-year-old Italian girl who grew up here and how dare you set me up? I want to go to things like ball games, but when I go to the ball game, they’re going to write the story that will sell papers.”

She continues: “Look, I’m not an idiot—I recognize that I’m a public figure and I’m going to be recognized if I’m wearing a bikini or a potato sack. The trade-off is I get to see the Yankees, and what the Yankees mean to me in my soul as a young person from New York is more important to me than my reputation in terms of the tabloids.”

You know what this means—Gaga’s next out-there outfit will be a diamond-encrusted potato sack. Which still wouldn’t be the most ridiculous thing she’s ever worn.
