Lady Gaga graces the cover of this month's Rolling Stone Magazine and gets personal discussing everything from Lupus running in her family, her father, her new album and the importance of sex on her scale of priorities right now.
She models her fame after Michael Jackson in leaving us with a sense of mystery, stating "Michael got burned, and he lifted that glittered glove so damn high so his fans could see him, because he was in the art of show business. That's what we do. I don't even drink water onstage in front of anybody, because I want them to focus on the fantasy of the music."
On her new album, which she will announce the title to on New Year's Eve, "I have been for three years baking cakes — and now I'm going to bake a cake that has a bitter jelly. The message of the new music is now more bitter than it was before. Because the sweeter the cake, the more bitter the jelly can be." A darker Gaga, indeed.
The new issue of Rolling Stone hits news stands tomorrow. Read the teaser here.
