My interview to Lady Gaga
The last September, when
I was in Pennsylvania with the school, I metLady
Gaga. She is very weird. I am sure that all of you know her. She is an American
singer and songwriter. She became famous with the release of her debut album
The Fame (2008). Lady Gaga is
considered as a gay icon, so she fights against homophobia and bullying. She was sitting next to me in the plane, so, I had a lot of time to speak with her. I had
Firstly, I asked her if
she suffered bullying in the school when she was younger and she said that when
she was studying in the New York School, her
classmates laughed at her because she had a big nose and she was overweight.
This is the reason why she had decided to create a foundation called Born This Way,
with her mum. The organization fights for the equality between children in the
world. Then, I wanted to know what were her
influences on her style and she answered things very weird! She said to me that
her style was unique. She was inspired by Cruella de Ville, unicorns ( it is her
favourite animal ) and in prostitutes. In her clips, she usually got her inspiration in
religion. Still, I am very surprised!
Also, I asked her how many tattoos
she had and she said that she had got five tattoos: one in her waist, in her left shoulder, in her left arm, in her left wrist and in her left thigh. The
last one is her favourite because she really likes unicorns.The flight took nine hours, so I had a
lot of time to ask her many interesting things. She was a little tired, but
she did not care. I wanted to know too what her hobbies
were and she told me that besides singing,
writing songs and dancing, she liked fishing, playing the piano and going to
art museums. Finally, as she has written a lot
of songs, I asked her what her favourite song was and she answered, of
course, that her favourite song was Born This Way, because the gay community
had chosen it as their anthem because the lyrics say: "Do not be a drag, just be a queen". She was very proud of it.
I thanked her for answering all my questions and I said goodbye.
She promised me that she would come to visit me and we have always been in touch since then!
