Photographed by Nick Knight and styled by Nicola Formichetti , Lady Gaga is the September 2010 cover girl for the UK’s edition of Vanity Fair magazine. Apparently, the “Alejandro” singer is to also cover the Vanity Fair US edition in September of this year. This is only teaser we’re going to get more on Monday morning, but it’s certainly something to look forward to reading.
Highlights from her interview:
On sex: “I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina. I’m perpetually lonely. I’m lonely when I’m in relationships. It’s my condition as an artist. 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.”
On the Yankees game scandal: “Well, I guess I was my true New York 24-year-old Italian girl who grew up here and how dare you set me up? I want to go to things like ball games, but when I go to the ball game, they’re going to write the story that will sell papers. Look, I’m not an idiot—I recognize that I’m a public figure and I’m going to be recognized if I’m wearing a bikini or a potato sack. The trade-off is I get to see the Yankees, and what the Yankees mean to me in my soul as a young person from New York is more important to me than my reputation in terms of the tabloids. My real fans know who I truly am, and they know what I represent and what I mean, and my music and my performance is what really speaks.”
