Skip to comments.Lady Gaga talks troubled past as ‘tortured artist’: The real me is ‘a mess’
Posted on 09/13/2013 9:23:35 AM PDT by AtlasStalled
Several performers have alter egos who bring out the best of their energy on stage, but Lady Gaga says her real persona, Stefani Germanotta, is the one she stays away from.
"I am - Stefani is - a perpetually tortured artist," she says in Elle magazine's October issue.
"That's why I changed my name. I can't be her in public. She would be a mess!"

Lady Gaga shouldn’t sell herself short: the alter ego is a mess, too
Uh, most of us figured that out long ago.
A bit of reciprocity here, she’s been torturing the greater public with her crap for awhile now.
Coulda knocked me over with a feather on that.
That's a start.
She is also torqued by demons that she allowed in her life. Google it.
Pr0n star’s fear of the number 13...
Thats why we should listen to her on social and political issues I guess...
Who is this Radio Gaga person?
I still think that she’s a dude. Look at that jawline and Adam’s apple.
Today’s winner in the “we’d have never guessed !” Prize category.
Bet you she wasn’t born that way.
So many of these transsexuals are a ‘mess’.
Lady Gaga is a guy. I am thoroughly convinced of that particular belief. Nothing this creature does is actually within the behavior range of the adult human female.
Might be of some other species, though. Like lizards or salamanders.
You are a mess, lady.
I’d hate to see the mess you really are..............
I’m surprised her star has lasted this long; however, there’s not a lot of talent out there in my opinion, and until someone with some real talent comes along I guess she serves as the pop distraction for those who confuse intelligent creativity with meaningless shock. I have a feeling in a few years when VH1 runs its one-hit wonder special from this decade Lady Gaga will be featured, and many of her “little monsters” then will be embarrassed to admit that they once were her fans.
OH BOOO HOOO!
Its fashionable to be “a mess”.
You could look on any social media and it would take about three seconds to find a girl that has absolutely everything she could possibly need and she would say “oh my life is such a mess, ‘like’ if you feel sorry for me”
I’ve never listened to Lady and the Gagas.
These are the people we celebrate today in this country.
Putin was right, we are not exceptional, at least, anymore.
So Lady Gaga/Stefani is troubled. Wow. Never would’ve thought it. I need to sit down. Next thing you know we’ll find out that Miley Cyrus has issues. Geez.
Then maybe someone should clue her into the fact that we can actually see the real “her”.
You’re a mess Stephanni. But at least you didn’t “fall” 17 stories off a balcony after coming up with a stage persona that out btrashed Madonna
Lady Gaga is talented, ambitious, hard-working, successful and rich. My morbidly obese sister-in-law who sits around all day doing nothing but smoking weed, watching TV and collecting welfare checks is a mess. Big difference.
A wacko by any other name would be just as wacko.
I think Lady Gaga was just in the right place at the right time. Sure, she had to show up but so do thousands of other performers. She was lucky that her schtick happened to fit with the times but hardly likely her music will endure. She’s kind of the Jerry Springer of pop music, and they’ll be little from her catalog worth preserving.
This Radio GaGa ??
She's not a man. She's just your typical New Jersey gutter trash.
I have gagaphobia.
What's not to hit?
Looks like Jar Jar Binks.
she should be gagged
leftists are all mental patients
Lady, the phony you is wearing a meat dress.
Sure, Mozart she's not, but I do have a certain amount of admiration for Lady Gaga. In a business full of talentless barbie-doll products of focus-group driven Svengalis pulling strings behind the scenes, Lady Gaga did it all on her own. Her success is directly attributed to her ambition and hard work. She created an image, wrote her own music, started out in crappy clubs and worked her way up. And that she did it all without barbie-doll good looks is even more impressive considering the business she's in.
People can knock Lady Gaga all the want. Fact is, if more Americans had her ambition, drive and work ethic, the country would be in a lot better place. Instead, far too many are sitting around waiting for hand-outs.
Schizophrenic? She’s bleeding Quadrophrenic.
It is one thing being a “mess”, that’s so cool.
It is another thing Living with a “Mess”
That is a NIGHTMARE.
Ask me about it sometime...
Not just a “mess”, but a fugly mess.
