As one who’s always one step ahead, Lady Gaga knows that some people have not find her pretty — and she’s perfectly fine with that.
Speaking with Glamour magazine as their Woman of the Year, the Mother Monster admits she may not fall under the “conventionally beautiful” category like some of the previous starlets who’ve held the title. (Ahem, Selena Gomez.)
“If there was some sort of mathematical equation for beauty, I don’t know if I would be the algorithm. I’ve always been OK with that. I’m not a supermodel. That’s not what I do. What I do is music,” she tells the publication. “I want my fans to feel the way I do, to know what they have to offer is just as important, more important, than what’s happening on the outside.”
“Being beautiful is not so fun when you’re in a business with all men,” she adds.
Gaga, who previously struggled with eating disorders as a teen, explains that she now accepts her body for what it is — even if “some days are better than others.”
The singer says, “I’m confident in who I am. I’ve come to a place in my life where I’ve accepted things that are me, as opposed to feeling pressure to explain myself to people around me. That’s just the way I’ve always tried to be. It didn’t change when I became a star.”
“At the end of the day, I’m a tortured soul.”
