Interviewed by Oprah in next month’s issue of Elle magazine, Lady Gaga is opening up about mental health and of course, the rumours surrounding Shallow co-star, Bradley Cooper.

 

 

 

Lady Gaga tells Oprah, “Quite frankly I think the press is very silly.  I mean, we made a love story. For me, as a performer and as an actress, of course we wanted people to believe that we were in love. And we wanted people to feel that love at the Oscars. We wanted it to go right through the lens of that camera and to every television that it was being watched on. And we worked hard on it, we worked for days. We mapped the whole thing out–it was orchestrated as a performance.”

Gaga also opened up about her iconic meat dress, the one she wore at the 2010 MTV VMAs, “Well, the meat dress, quite frankly, I didn’t think it was going to be as shocking to everyone as it was.  But that’s just me. I have a sort of eccentric brain, so for me, I was like, ‘Of course this makes sense.’…For me that wasn’t shocking; it was shocking to the world.” 

 

 

 

Gaga continues, “And I have to say, it was quite recently — after doing A Star is Born, and working with Bradley Cooper, and my experience even with winning an Oscar — I sort of just went to myself, ‘You have a much greater mission on this earth than to freak the hell out of people. Your mission is to give people a form of love through your art that lifts them up.'”
