Lady Gaga ‘can no longer tell the difference between reality & performance’

Lady Gaga

For this story, I decided not to repeat some of the recent and rather boring Lady Gaga photos that have surfaced in favor of going with some pseudo-vintage (and pre-plastic surgery) Gaga, circa 2008-9. But get ready for some new dish on Gaga via a former crew member, who is revealing so-called “shocking” secrets about Lady Gaga on the heels of last week’s “blinding” revelation (via an upcoming biography by one of Gaga’s closest confidantes) that Gaga used to do bags and bags” of coke while listening to Bowie. All of these tidbits aren’t really that surprising as much as predictable with the impending buildup Gaga’s impenetrable, indecipherable (and possibly unintelligible) ARTPOP album that will bring the music industry into a new age. We’ll see.

Anyway, the former crew member of Gaga’s has chosen to remain nameless for fear of Gaga’s terrible wrath, and this story discusses how Gaga is “a slave to her outrageous stage persona” and has developed “a personality disorder” that prevents her from recognizing her true self, Stefani Germanotta. Like, she’s insists upon being referred to as Gaga to everyone, including her family and her sex partners. Personally, I think this is an affectation and part of Gaga’s insistence that her life is art or some such nonsense, but let’s do this anyway:

Lady Gaga

All Gaga all the time: “She has completely lost her mind. Nobody calls her Stefani. Even her mum calls her Gaga. She can no longer tell the difference between reality and performance. It is like she is living her entire life in this alternate universe that she has created.”

On her maneating ways: “She was filming [the “You & I” video] in [longtme boyfriend Luc Carl’s] hometown of Nebraska — with him there — and had hired Taylor [Kinney] to play Luc in the video. So she cheated on her boyfriend with the man playing him in the music video — then dumped him. Taylor had a girlfriend and she told him she didn’t care. She takes what she wants — because she can. She is obsessed with men. She will do anything to get a guy.”

She’s into weird sex, of course: “She is a complete exhibitionist and has had sex in places where she knows strangers can see her. Her love-making is a big performance. She loves doing weird stuff in the bedroom. She is as extravagant in bed as she is on stage.”

On her physical appearance: “Stefani had dark hair but she dyed it blonde early in her career because she kept being told she looked like Amy Winehouse. She didn’t like that at all. She respected Amy’s career but didn’t want to look like her. She wanted to look like a supermodel.”

Gaga’s “terrible relationship with food”: “She was obsessed with having to be skinny and would starve herself and be sick after meals. She tells her fans to love themselves whatever their quirks — but does not always practise what she preaches.”

She’s really the Mother Monster: “She would have a prayer circle before each show. One night she just suddenly turned on one of the backing singers, branding her unprofessional and ungrateful. She crucified her in front of dozens of people — she skinned this girl alive. It was so painful to watch — and no, you couldn’t step in. She offers support to her fans who are victims of bullying and calls them her monsters — but she is a bully and a monster herself. She is not afraid of firing people. The way things have turned so sour now shows how Gaga will spit people out without a second thought.”

[From The Sun]

Given what we’ve already heard about how poorly Gaga treated her personal assistant, I have no problem believing these stories about how she treats her backup dancers like dirt too. Funny how we never hear this sort of stuff about Madonna, right? Madonna might be seriously high maintenance (as well as paranoid about DNA sterilization), but we don’t really hear horror stories about how she treats her staff and crew. Then again, Madge’s relative humanity could be seen as a testament to her longevity, whereas I honestly don’t see Gaga lasting longer than a decade in the entertainment industry before burning out in a wholly unspectacular way.

    The mind control executed on her was probably too much for her brain. Expect her to go crazy in 3…2…1…

    • smith says:

      It just looks so exhausting to be her.

      • Lucybelle says:

        The EXACT thought came to mind as I was looking at these pictures. Doesn’t the girl ever just want to put on a pair of perfectly worn-in Levis, flip flops and a tank top, pull her hair in a pony and go out bare-faced? If she wants to shock people she should try that, because the ridic costumes and wigs are just tired now.

    • minamka says:

      I agree 100%

  2. Sandy says:

    Coke heads are dirty and delusional: the end.

  3. Gabriella says:

    When Gaga first came out in 2008/09 I was so obsessed with her! I used to love everything about Gaga: the clothes were pretty rad; her attitude seemed cool; the music wasn’t groundbreaking but it wasn’t trying to be anything but fun dancing pop music anyways. Now there is not one thing about her I find appealing, not the costumes, not the music, not the ideology… I don’t know if I grew out of Gaga (after all, I was 15/16 then and now I’m 20) or if her image is really just… worn out? Her costumes and music are not interesting enough to distract from all her lies and diva episodes anymore.
    She is over for me.

    • me says:

      I personally never got her whole music and “art” thing. Her music sounds like all the other crap out there right now, it’s not distinctive to me at all.

    • Jano1981 says:

      I feel the exact same way and I’m 32. I don’t think you grew out of her, she really got that annoying. 🙂

  4. Kaye says:

    I always liked her. She seemed intelligent and creative. I was hoping the time away recovering from the hip surgery would give her some perspective, at least enough to crawl out of her own a**.

    • kiddo says:

      +1 for morning humor.

    • Liv says:

      She seemed like a sweet girl when she started to make music, but this whole Gaga pseudonym absorbed her I guess. I feel sorry for her. Must be hard to just get attention when you put on a crazy character.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      I still kind of like her (and the outfits, and the music) but the schtick is no longer new.

  5. Jules says:

    She is as tiresome as Perry. Can they please go away and stay away?

    • emmie_a says:

      IMO the difference being Gaga has actual talent. …But I am sort of over her gimmicks.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      @Jules, Ugh, totally agree about Gaga. She bores me to tears with her desperate “outrageousness.” Don’t care about Perry one way or the other.

  6. GeeMoney says:

    Most celebrities are full of crap when they tell you that you should “love your body and yourself and eat hamburgers” when everyone knows they are secretly starving themselves, popping Adderall or throwing up on the side. I don’t know why people buy into their nonsense.

    I still like Gaga… I don’t care too much about her personal life or her secret quest to be insanely gorgeous… I just care that she makes good music. I just hope that ARTPOP turns out to be a good album.

  7. TG says:

    Gaga and Miley are two women who are so not sexy no matter how naked they get. It seems every singer out there dressed in costume now so their is nothing unique about her looks.

  8. Jag says:

    So, which Madonna album and videos do you think she’ll be copying – oh excuse me, using as inspiration – this time?

    • Gia says:

      No sh-t! Fortunately, Madonna is still around and Gaga is going to fade into oblivion. She’ll be like the Vanilla Ice of the 2010’s. My prediction is Gaga will take on the gothy, ‘Frozen’, Madonna period next.

  9. Lulu86 says:

    does anyone have the scoop on what happened to her and Perez Hilton they were BFFs now he seems to really dislike her.

    • Gabriella says:

      I’m not sure what went down, but I think it started when Perez threw shade on the fact that Lady Gaga’s concerts were not selling well. He said something about Taylor Swift outselling Gaga on twitter and it all went downhill from there. He got into an epic fight with one of Gaga’s friends, a girl named Tara Something lol!
      During her The Fame days, Gaga would associate with anyone who could grant her fame, even if they were ‘scum’. She was also friends with Paris Hilton and at some point stopped being. Truth is… they’re all jealous divas who will only be friends with each other for as long as it’s convenient to them.

      • Lulu86 says:

        oh wow, fame really is a monster lol. i am sure they all use and suck each other dry and then move onto something/one else.

  10. Eleonor says:

    Madonna might be the greatest Queen Bitch out there, but she has always been a great professionist. Gaga is too much full of it: she has been around for some years and she thinks she is Madonna.

    • Meredith says:

      Madonna is really creeping me out now with her Nora Desmond/Sunset Blvd. antics (“I will never grow old!!”) but I believe she works extremely hard and always has. She’s a professional and expects the same for other people around her. I think people only get ticked off when you expect them to work hard but do nothing yourself. It’s the double standard they can’t stand.

  11. lisa says:

    she is living life theatrically a la jenna maroney

  12. Mayday says:

    I’m not surprised at ALL to hear she is a big bully behind the scenes – I always disliked her but the nail in the coffin for me was when she never stepped up to defend Adele when her fans were ripping her apart on twitter and elsewhere.

    It seems like a small thing but I think that speaks LOADS about how she really is.

  13. Happy21 says:

    I don’t know if I believe all of that. Some for sure but honestly Taylor Kinney and her and still together are they not? He seems so normal compared to her that I figure something (besides sex since they are almost never together) must be keeping them together. If she is that effed up and mental, I can’t see that relationship working out…

  14. bammer says:

    I just want to know what happened between her and Alex Skarsgard during the video shoot.

  15. diva says:

    I can’t wait until her 15 minutes are up. She is overrated and the gimmicks aren’t entertaining.

  16. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Please, she’s not that talented, not that intelligent, and certainly not that interesting – has she ever read, actually read, a bio of Hemingway or Gershwin or Picasso or Van Gogh to get an idea of what real artists are like?
    She yaps about “Art” all the time to conceal the fact that she knows nothing about it.

  17. Dethammer says:

    She recently gave an interview with Womens Wear Daily and said “I am every icon” and how she is “every color on the palette”. I think she’s back to powdering her (smaller) nose.

  18. Jay says:

    It all sounds horrible, but on one point don’t all performers adopt their stage names? No one seems to call David Bowie “David Jones” AFAIK.

    • sunnydaze says:

      I think it’s a little different when someone changes a last name or a name they dislike….”gaga” is just ridiculous, it’s not even a name, it’s a verb. I would laugh myself to death if anyone I knew insisted on such foolishness.

  19. Nikki says:

    Nooo, I was always under the impression that Madge is pretty notorious for being a bitch to people. Anyone remember the “hydrangea” incident?

  20. LaurieH says:

    I don’t “get” Lady Gaga. To me, she’s an exercise in self-aggrandizement. If this is supposed to be performance art, it’s nothing more than the personified art of narcissism. She may seem novel to younger generations, but to me (at 49) it’s just so much second-rate deja vu. I find her to be a boring, unoriginal, hypocritical person who perpetually confuses the size of her bank account and the extent of peoples’ gullibility with the size and extent of her talent.

    • Jarredsgirl says:


      This girl is all kinds of narcissistic. Her ego is out of proportion and it is obvious that it all stems from intense insecurity.

      I dont think she is that talented, she is average. She is no mariah carey and I think she knows it because she feels the need to have a gimmick and dress like a complete f-cking looney. If you stop viewing her in the context of ‘artist’ she just comes across as mentally ill

      • Lauraq says:

        I think she is horrible, her music is mainstream and her persona sucks…but she does have great talent. She just hides it behind autotune and stupidity. There is a video of her playing piano and just belting it out…when I first saw it I was shocked because I, like you, assumed that she must be talentless.

    • Denise says:

      Can we pretend I said that? That was perfection.

  21. Denise says:

    You go now.
