Lady Gaga Feels the Most Like Herself ‘In the Bath, Naked, In a Sea of Bubbles,' She Says
The always-daring Lady Gaga -- the queen of transformation -- is actually the most like the true Stefani Germanotta when she goes without the dramatic costumes and is in her own skin… literally.
In an interview with the UK’s Stylist magazine, the Mother Monster herself gets pretty revealing as she talks about being in her birthday suit, or “bathtub outfit”, as she calls it.
“I would say when I’m in the bath, naked, in a sea of bubbles going, “Aaaah.” That is most me – when I’m sighing out the whole day into a warm bath,” she gushed. “So I guess what I’m saying is when I’m wearing the bathtub. The bathtub outfit.”
“I am throwing my best friend an engagement party this weekend, and I’m going to be seeing all these girls from high school, and I would be totally lying to you if I didn’t say I was worried about how I’m going to look!” said the 26-year-old.
“I was saying earlier, ‘I have to look fabulous, I have to look absolutely amazing, some of them were horrible to me!’”
“I think women are just, for no reason, wretched to each other all the time, and I don’t think they use clothes or men or perfume or make-up or anything more than they use anything else," said Gaga. "We should all make an effort to be nice to one another all the time.”
But leave it to the outspoken pop star to get in the last word. Always one to speak her mind, the “Poker Face” songstress confronted the purpose behind her Body Revolution -- which she launched in response to public critisicm over her recent weight gain -- by admitting she “doesn’t care” what people think.
“I was acutely aware of some photos on the internet – my mum called me and was like, “Did you gain weight?” – everybody was telling me about it, and I didn't really care,” she said.
“Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match,” Gaga added. “She has set the bar very high for a lot of woman. I need to be a confident woman and just say politically active things when I can that are helpful to young people.”
So she leaves it to her fans to spread her positive message.
“They carry the message so far. Ever since they saw how much Born This Way could affect people, they wanted to do more and have that sort of space of kindness and compassion.”
