All excerpts below are from an accompanying article on CNN.com, which says that apparently Lady Gaga had to be "pacified" from practically walking away from the interview.
The full article is found here.
"I'm sort of a musical pop music misfit," she said in her slow New York drawl, and "a relentless bitch" in response to how she had got to the top of the music industry.
She claims Lady Gaga is not a persona and it seems she is committed to living as closely to the wild fantasy shown in her videos. More at home on the stage than in the interview chair --"We could sit here and talk, but you will never know who I am unless you see me live" -- even Gaga's faithful make-up artist (in attendance throughout the interview) thought she was crazy because she sleeps in her wigs.
Was it to keep the persona up, stay in character? No, "I just like wigs," she said with an unintentional comic deadpan.
Composure regained, "You can ask me about scrutiny, but I'd prefer if you didn't..." Gaga said.
