We got sucked into this lengthy interview with Lady GaGa in the Guardian, and were shocked to discover that having just one hit song has inflated her ego to astronomical proportions. Allow Scandalist to break down the best quotes, so you too can marvel at the utter nonsense that flows from her meticulously glossed lips.
- Fun fact #1: The lady is gaga about making really crappy pseudo avant-garde movies. “I just shot these art films called ‘crevettes’,” she said. “That’s what I call them. It means shrimps, in French. And shrimps are small, but decadent and tasty, which is how I think my films should be.”
- Fun Fact #2: Her cheesy, fun pop music is actually groundbreaking genius: “It’s got a real, genuine, like, soul of innovation.”
- Fun Fact #3: Lady GaGa makes no sense. None. In an attempt to explain how her education made her a strong thinker, she goes off on a loony tangent reminiscent of one of Gary Busey‘s best rants. Behold: “If I decide to make a coat red in the show, it’s not just red. I think: is it communist red? Is it cherry cordial? Is it ruby red? Or is it apple red? Or the big red balloon red? I mean there’s like so many fucking different kinds of red. And so you have to say, well, what are we trying to say in this scene? Is it a happy red? Or a sad red? Is it a lace red? Or a leather red? Or a wool red? It’s like there are so many components to making a show and making art, and my school taught me how to think that way.”
- Fun Fact #4: The singer has always been famous, even though we just heard of her last year: “I don’t think I could ever be prepared for fame…I’ve felt famous my whole life, but this is a whole other level of famous.”
After digesting all of Gaga’s nonsense, we have one suggestion for the title of her next single: “Just Go Away.”
