Gaga Quotes


* "A year from now, I could go away and people might say: "Gosh, whatever happened to that girl who never wore pants?" But how wonderfully memorable 30 years from now, when they say: "Do you remember Gaga and her bubbles?" Because, for a moment, everybody in that room will forget every sad, painful thing in there lives, and they'll just live in my bubble world."

Don't you ever give up on yourselves, I believe in you so so much!"

I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm trying to liberate them, I want to free them of their fears and make them feel that they can make their own space in the world."

* "I was a middle-class girl who wanted to rebel and discover all these different sides to life. It was my dad who pulled me back. I wanted to show my parents I was completely wild. My dad thought I’d lost it. He came to see me and told me if I didn’t pull back I would lose everything. That completely shook me, because even though I wanted to rebel, my parents are the people I respect most in this world. I didn’t want to lose my father’s respect, so I stopped. As a performer I’m outrageous and wild, but as a person I have a very strong moral code. To this day I feel guilt about what I put my parents through when I was younger. I’ll call my mother out of the blue and say: "Mom, I’m so sorry about what I did." They’re very proud of me today, but I wouldn’t have their pride if I hadn’t listened to them and told them I was sorry. It’s as important to acknowledge your mistakes as it is to get credit for your victories."

* "In downtown New York - and really in New York everywhere - really in the world - you have the ability to self-proclaim your own fame. You have the ability to experience and feel a certain amount of self-worth, that comes from a very vain place by simply liking your choices, your opinions about music, your opinions about politics, the way that you walk down the street, the way that you carry yourself at parties… I mean, you can… literally… CHOOSE… to have fame. I’m not posturing that it’s good or that it’s bad. I’m struggling with the idea. If anyone said: "Who is Lady Gaga?" I would be okay with: "… She is the most impressive con artist of fame." I mean, I literally trick people everyday into believing that I’m somebody… and I’m not."

And I swear, you know, people say "Oh, it must suck to be you sometimes because you can't go anywhere" and I say "No. No, no, no." The worst part about being me is that sometimes I just feel like I can't give you everything I wanna give you. I just wish i could fix everything that's wrong with you, or makes you feel like something's wrong with you. Whatever makes you feel broken, Ijust wish I could fix it. Because i was so broken... and you fixed me."

* "This is the Manifesto of Little Monster
There is something heroic about the way my fans operate their cameras. So precisely, so intricately and so proudly. Like Kings writing the history of their people, is their prolific nature that both creates and procures what will later be percieved as the kingdom. So the real truth about Lady Gaga fans, my little monsters, lies in this sentiment: They are the Kings. They are the Queens. They write the hisory of the kingdom and I am something of a devoted Jester. It is in the theory of perception that we have established our bond, or the lie I should say, for which we kill. We are nothing without our image. Without our projection. Without the spiritual hologram of who we percieve ourselves to be or rather to become, in the future.
When you are lonely,
I will be lonely too.
And this is the fame."



* "Tonight, I want you to free yourselves. I want you to reject anyone or anything that has made you feel like you don't belong, or you're not good enough.

You tell them you're a goddamn superstar and you were born this way!"

* "When you do something great, and somebody says - "I like that", you should look at them and say - "thank you, I worked very hard on this and it's really great", because it's the only way to get that sharable sense of value in your life, and that fame, that has nothing to do with cameras and being a celebrity. I couldn't give a damn about celebrities, but truthfully, if you don't honor your own work, you're nothing. So honor your own work and anything that you do."



* "When you make music or write or create, it's really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever idea it is you're writing about at the time."
