Tireless self-promoter Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, AKA Lady Gaga, says that she “doesn’t trust anybody and doesn’t know if she ever will,”  telling Vanity Fair magazine (while undressing, posing) that “I’m drawn to bad romances.  And my song Bad Romance is about whether I go after those (sort of relationships) or if they find me.”  All that, for those who care.  And apparently many do,  since she’s the most popular person in the web world with more than ten million Facebook followers and five million Twitter fans.  Gaga also said that she is now celibate and fights lust, like Mae West (though West swung from abstinence to indulgence), because it saps her artistic ingenuity.  “I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my (anatomical area where girls are different from boys),” she said.  Gaga has revealed on other occasions that she is bisexual, but didn’t elaborate on whether her stoic chastity extended in that direction as well.  She also confessed to Vanity that her life had “hit rock bottom” from drug use and found herself in her grandmother’s West Virginia home.  “I cried.  I told her I thought my life was over and I have no hope.”  According to Gaga, her grandmother allowed her a few hours of cry time and then told her  

“…you’re gonna stop crying, you’re gonna pick yourself up, you’re gonna go back to New York, and you’re gonna kick some ass.”  Opportunity only allows one out of a hundred million humans to achieve celebrity stardom.  If more struggling performers had Gaga‘s grandmother, there would be less table-waiters and far more entertainers.  Or is that a good thing?
