Lady Gaga: If I sleep with someone, they’ll take my creativity through my vagina


We already previewed Vanity Fair’s angelic drag queen cover of Lady Gaga for September (the American & UK editions used the same cover). But VF has just released another photo from the Nick Knight shoot, and they also released some interesting interview excerpts. My favorite, the quote I’m going to have put on a t-shirt? “I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina.” Excellent. That quote is a famewhore’s delight. It hits every sweet spot. It makes me feel two things instantly: one, that Gaga probably does feel that way and two, that the bitch needs to settle down. I love her and everything, but girl, your vadge is not the center of your creativity.

Lady Gaga tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Lisa Robinson that she tries to avoid having sex because she is afraid of depleting her creative energy—“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina.”

She also says that she doesn’t trust anybody and doesn’t know if she ever will. Gaga tells Robinson, “I’m perpetually lonely. I’m lonely when I’m in relationships. It’s my condition as an artist.” Regarding men, she says, “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. I’m quite celibate now; I don’t really get time to meet anyone.”

Gaga talks candidly about her drug use and recalls her ultimate low point: “I was completely mental and had just been through so much.” She had been using drugs, and is quick to tell Robinson that, if she writes about that incident, “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.”

Instead of rehab, though, when disaster struck, Gaga “went home.” She tells Robinson, “All I will say is I hit rock bottom, and it was enough to send a person over the edge. My mother knew the truth about that day, and she screamed so loud on the other end of the phone, I’ll never forget it. And she said, ‘I’m coming to get you.’”

Gaga says they went to her 82-year-old grandmother’s house in West Virginia.

“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.’”

Gaga also responds to the brouhaha surrounding her appearance at the Yankees game, and what she wore to her sister’s graduation; shows Robinson the contents of her bag; explains her devotion to her Little Monsters; and more.

[From Vanity Fair]

I wish we had the quotes about the Yankees game, because this other sh-t has been talked about to the point of exhaustion. I mean, we get it. She had a breakdown before she got famous and her parents were there for her and blah blah. She’s 24 years old and her only new experiences are in the public eye, so why do we have to rake over this old sh-t constantly? Eh. I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my rage from me through my vagina.

    If she meant it metaphorically then I see her point – relationships take time and effort and if you’re dedicated to BEING LADY GAGA! 24-7 then your creativity and dedication to that will inevitably suffer.

    I hope she’s not being metaphorical, though. I hope she believes that her vagina is a diamond-mine filled with preciousness and in it there are little GaGa Gnomes mining away, little armadillo-shoe cage-skirt beehive-mask-couture wearing imps, and that when the cave door opens and the monstrous dragon Peniswocky enters they will be dazzled by the daylight and melt away to nothingness and the treasures of her vagina will go unmined forever.

    Tim Burton should make that movie.

    “… if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina”

    I have to wonder if that is Gaga code for ‘I can’t reveal my naughty bits because I am still pre-op’.

  3. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I LOVE Gaga and I see what she is saying. I get it. It will certainly be harder for her to trust anyone now at this level of fame in her career. I mean I can see where she thinks (and I am taking this into my interpretation)that you make love to a guy, let him inside, more inside then anyone can be inside a person and then what you perceive to be special is just not for him and he treats you like crap, or the guys sucks in bed. Either one will make you feel drained and like you let an intruder into your person and that he liked robbed your ass. I am blabbing at this point but I think it makes sense. I love her crazy self.

    P.S tack tacky tacky of Vanity Fair to use the same damn cover as the UK cover. Actually I love the cover of the UK version so I am kinda glad they did it but there are alot of UK or AUS or FR covers I love, but I respect the fact that I can’t have them because thats not where I live and I enjoy the Ebay hunt if I must have the magazine for the photos. So but yea glad I can just buy it.

    I think she may going off the deep end.

  5. Liana says:

    oh good lord.

  6. SarahS says:

    Meh. I guess in her mind it equates to a boxer not getting any before a big bout. Hang onto that chi, sister! I do think she’s a bit of a legend in her own mind though.

    And @Lenore, you slayed me with your comment. You know that would be an Imax movie.

  7. jen says:

    What’s her excuse when she’s not sleeping with someone?

  8. Captaine says:

    This braud is so fuckin full of herself. Yes we get it, you’re an artist, but seriously gtfoh with this pretentious bullshit already.

  9. original kate says:

    i think she’s stealing a little bit of my soul every time she speaks. shut up, gaga.

  10. WednesdayGirl says:

    Jesus Christ will this chick get over herself already!?!

    She probably doesn’t want to be in a relationship for several reasons:

    1) She doesn’t want to share the spotlight with anyone else, god forbid!

    2) She’d make them dress up in crappy costumes to go along with hers or something of that matter

    3) She’s too madly in love with herself and her “artistic genuis” to really give a shit about someone else. I mean seriously. All she does in interviews is talk constantly about herself and how artistic and creative and powerful her crap is.

    Yes, I’m sick of this faker. She rips off so many artists and musicians that came before her that it’s ridiculous. And she knows 100% that she’s copying and ripping them off, which is why she goes around kissing those artists’ asses, in hopes they’ll overlook that fact. Plus, she doesn’t even write her own lyrics.

    And then people go crazy because she can play the piano. THE PIANO! Tori Amos, Amy Lee of Evanescence, Diamanda Galas, and many more female musicians can play the piano, and those artists aren’t called genuises.

    Lady Gaga is nothing more than a manufactured product of a record label company, just like Taylor Momsen, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Avril Lavigne, and many more. They want her to play up an image that they’ve created that will sell music, and she does what they say, playing it up as hard as she can.

    me too!

    and…KUDOS to lenore. hahahahahaha.

  12. J says:


    Really, its so past being “edgy”, that she is now coming off as desperate.

    Anything she does and says, it solely based on the attention it can draw. Then she step’s on her soapbox and rants off about how special her art is. But she hasn’t done ANYTHING worth the praise.

    Huge ego and a circus of sycophants are what are driving her now.

  13. serena says:

    She’s 24? omg. She seems so much older, it’s creepy!
    But I love this looks!

  14. J says:


    I am obsessed with Tori Amos – who has been around for decades, plays the piano and is a certified FREAK of nature – but she has never had to scream it or shove it in our faces, because its who she is, a REAL GENIUS.

    Its the ones who need to promote it, that are the ones lacking the talent.

  15. Shay says:

    She is just blowing it all out of her butt. This is just hoopla to amp up her supposed artiness (she is a composite of many artists, she even took her name from the Queen song Radio GaGa).

  16. malachais says:

    I love Lady Gaga but sometimes, I just don’t get her.

  17. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    We all love Tori Amos. Who doesn’t? However whats wrong with a little strange and over the topness??? Lady Gaga is talented. She sings live on top of being able to play the piano band she performs amazing shows. Spectacles. Its nice to just watch a girl play the piano. However nothing wrong with her crazy costumes and utter performance art shows. 2nd I don’t know what people expect when your getting interviewed about yourself. Thank you Gaga for giving interesting answers. I also don’t think she stole anything from anyone, she maybe inspired by others and that shows but she puts herself in it and thats what shines the brightest.

    Time to be quiet now, Lady GagGag. When you are older and more mature and your career has been over for many years, it’s interviews like this that will haunt you in your end days when you realize you revealed too much and wonder if it was things like this that derailed your career. It won’t be though. It will just be that in a few years everyone will have tired of you and refer to what you do as “sooooo 2010″.

  20. Dizzybenny says:

    @ J:14, right on!
    I’m waiting on the new cd that she says will be more political,more about her views of the world.Strange that has she embarks on working on the new CD she goes back with her ex.The same guy that made her famous,the same guy that had brought her to court because she had failed in the sharing of profits.
    to quote a song from the early 90′s ”things that make you say hmmmm”!

  21. Lenore says:

    WednesdayGirl: “Tori Amos, Amy Lee of Evanescence, Diamanda Galas, and many more female musicians can play the piano, and those artists aren’t called genuises.”

    I don’t know about Amy Lee, but Tori Amos and Diamanda Galas have DEFINITELY had their acclaim and been called geniuses.

    But Galas and Amos are off-centre artists, independent, doing their own thing left-field and very rarely troubling the charts; it’s not like they’re particularly concerned with getting hit records (although with a couple of Tori’s more recent records I’ve had the feeling she’s been chasing radioplay more than previously).

    The difference with GaGa is that she is a mainstream, ultra-successful pop star. For a long time, all the big selling female pop singers – the ones selling the most, anyway – have been very conventional – Britney, Christina, Beyonce, all conventionally hot girls singing love songs, none of whom were noted for their artistry or for playing their own instruments.

    Whatever else people say about Lady GaGa – and I can definitely see why people can’t abide her – she has managed to become a massively successful pop artist, singing conventional pop music, but with her own musical talent, her own control over her music, and without even attempting to present herself as a typical hot chick. I’m glad that there’s at least one mainstream pop singer trying to do something a little different – even if it’s still derivative, and even if the music is samey, at least it’s from the heart and she plays the stuff herself.

    (Also, I so want her next album to be the Diamond Vadge Gnome Chronicles. Can we get a petition going here?)

  22. Marie says:

    I like you Gaga but shut the fuck up already!

  23. Jover says:

    Couldn’t agree more Wednesdaygi lindar my head will explode if i read another poster declaiming that she writes her own music and plays the piano – she co-writes her stuff like most pop tarts check the credits on her discography; junior high school talent show kids can play instruments and write their own songs so big whoop. You’re right LindaR the less talent you have the more you saturate the media with your presence to stay in the limelight because your music alone won’t do it. The greats like hendrix,santana, Pink floyd, zeppelin, etc. didn’t need this constant media affirmation because their music stood on its own. CaCa’s media whoring is directly related to her mediocrity; and now we are going to have a “political” cd; good grief, that we have to endure the likes of Toby Keith, Dixie Chicks, Kanye, discoursing on politics, now we’ll have Caca’s thoughts, filtered through her pr/management team/label of course. Plato, Aristotle take notice a new political savant has entered the lists. Can’t we send all of these people to an island where they can knock themselves out with the outsized egos. She’s a freaking pop star; she’s not laying down her life for world peace.

  24. hmm says:

    Why not include the quote about her continuing use of cocaine?

  25. Dannii says:

    “It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”

  26. meme says:

    this tranny is such a poser. she needs to shut the fuck up and go away and take all her little monsters with her.

  27. Stagz says:

    Well then obviously she has been screwing someone her whole music career.

  28. irishserra says:

    Oh Lenore. I. Love. You. Too funny.

  29. DDD Cups of Justice says:

    Although I love me some Lady Gaga I can understand how others might not be fans of her work. But I think it’s ridiculous to click on a Lady Gaga story and then comment by saying “I hate her, stop talking about yourself already!” Um, first of all, what are you supposed to talk about in an interview? I’d rather have Lady Gaga talk about herself but if she spoke about politics or some other subject people would freak out over “another celeb” commenting on “something they know nothing about.” Second, if you hate Gaga so much, why even bother reading the story and then using the enegery to hate on it? Just sayin’…

  30. Kat says:

    “I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my rage from me through my vagina.” You and me both, kaiser. Lol.

  31. la chica says:

    my theory of Lady Gaga is that she was scarred emotionally by the allegations that she is a hermaphrodite (a belief that MANY still hold). hence the chronic obsession with showing, revealing, displaying, and endlessly discussing her vaj. this is all and only about her wanting to make sure we know that she has one.

  32. Conando says:

    Lenore, I’ll give you Britney as someone who was a conventional hot girl “singing” love songs, but Christina is always noted as a fantastic vocalist first and foremost, and a lot of her songs are very personal & more than just the standard pop fare.

  33. grace says:

    I’m sorry for my vulgar comment,

    but the kind of art she makes comes from a neighbor source…. lol

  34. Adrien says:

    It means that having sex is taking away her creativity of ripping off several acts like Madonna, Roisin Murphy, Cindy Lauper and much more. Awwww!

  35. jr says:

    yeah, just trying to copy Madonna with the shocking statements AGAIN!!!!!!

  36. doodadoo says:

    LOL! What a lame excuse to cover her true identity. She actually never had a vagina because she’s a guy! So, she/he had to make excuses for not sleeping with any guys.

  37. Heya i am for the first time here. I found this board and I find It truly helpful & it helped me out a lot. I am hoping to offer something back and aid others such as you aided me.
