Lady GaGa is a princess. So, why wasn't she let into her former castle?
As part of her profile piece, alongside Anderson Cooper, she stood outside of her former apartment, pressed all of the buttons on the buzzer, and informed him that someone would let them in. She wanted to do it "The New York Way". She lived there for three years as a struggling singer.
Twenty-four-year-old Lady GaGa, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is a three-ring circus of a woman: visionary, genius, and freak. So, just how real is she?
"How much more real could I be? This is what I'm really like. This is the coffee I drink every day, this is the diamond I put in the cup when I get nervous."
"Call me Gaga," she informed Cooper, "but I prefer Stefani in bed." That must have been an interesting, yet awkward line. Here is another quote from the interview that I absolutely love: "One of my greatest artworks is the art of fame. I'm a master of the art of fame."
A former cocaine user and current whiskey- and weed-loving diva, she is just as real as her audience.
So, even with the help of the usually tame Silver Fox, Lady GaGa did not tone anything down during her interview. Why are we not surprised?
Finally, they did in fact let her in and she was allowed to sit in the stairwell, fawning over old mementos since the camera crew was there. Hmmm... Talk about star treatment, right?
