We are not actually equal - humanity - if we are not allowed to freely love one another. ---->>>

If you only believe that you're an artist when you have a big advance in your pocket and a single coming out, I would say that's quite soulless.

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. ---->>>

Unless I am both capable of and willing to reopen the wound every time I write a song, if I choose to not look inside myself to write music, I'm really not worth being called an artist at all. ---->>>

Where I come from it was really unheard of to be at a party and someone says, 'What kind of music do you make?', and you say, 'Pop music.' You may as well have 'I'm not cool' stamped on your forehead.

Where I come from it was really unheard of to be at a party and someone says, 'What kind of music do you make?', and you say, 'Pop music.' You may as well have 'I'm not cool' stamped on your forehead.

I decided to pursue music, so I dropped out of school and I told my parents I didn't want any money from them. I got three jobs and I just hit the ground running. ---->>>

I know people said I wasn't selling out in America, but that was entirely untrue. We sold out all over the world, and every night I looked out into the fans and those front rows that you're talking about, the tears, the honesty, the inability to not be completely overjoyed because they felt accepted. ---->>>

I went to a lovely school, and I got an incredible education. And I actually think that my education is what really sets me apart, 'cause I'm very smart. ---->>>

I'm not one icon. I'm every icon. I'm an icon that is made out of all the colors on the palette at every time. I have no restrictions. No restrictions. ---->>>

No press, no television. If my mom calls and says, 'Did you hear about?' I don't want to know nothing about anything that is going on in relation to music. I shut it all off. ---->>>

The instrument that I never learned how to play was my fans. You know, they are the part of the story that nobody teaches you. I just want to do the right thing; I want to be a voice with them, among them. ---->>>

Celebrity life and media culture are probably the most overbearing pop-cultural conditions that we as young people have to deal with, because it forces us to judge ourselves. ---->>>

I don't know that my schooling was conducive to wild ideas and creativity, but it gave me discipline, drive. They taught me how to think. I really know how to think. ---->>>

I talk about myself in the third person all the time. I don't live my life in the way someone like you does. I live my life completely serving only my work and my fans. ---->>>

I was doing these performance art pop music pieces in the city. And they were a bit on the eccentric side I suppose. So people started to call me Gaga after the Queen song 'Radio Gaga.' ---->>>

If I decide to make a coat red in the show, it's not just red, I think: is it communist red? Is it cherry cordial? Is it ruby red? Or is it apple red? Or the big red balloon red? ---->>>

Everybody always laughs because I feel so much more comfortable with, like, a giant paper bag on my whole body and paint on my face. Sometimes I try really hard to take it all off. But inevitably what's underneath is still not a straight edge. And I don't think it ever will be. ---->>>

I'm not a supermodel. That's not what I do. What I do is music. 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. ---->>>

The fashion I've acquired over the years is so sacred to me - from costumes to couture, high fashion to punk wear I've collected from my secret international hot spots. I keep everything in an enormous archive in Hollywood. ---->>>

How I love David Bowie. ---->>>

Hair is about when you're younger. I am my hair. ---->>>

I already am a product. ---->>>

I got a job when I was 15 because my allowance was about $20 a week which in New York was impossible. So I used to waitress across the street from where I grew up. ---->>>

When you're around me and really see that all I do is live and breathe for my work, it's not strange, it's just Gaga. ---->>>

I'm terrified of therapy because I don't want it to mess with my creativity. ---->>>

The dieting wars have got to stop.

The dieting wars have got to stop.

My next baby will be my new record. ---->>>

I am the center of attention in my job every single day; the thought of a wedding to me is exhausting. Why would I put myself through that?

I am the center of attention in my job every single day; the thought of a wedding to me is exhausting. Why would I put myself through that?

I guess you could say it's always been my destiny to be a performer. ---->>>

I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. ---->>>

I really wanted to break the mold of what modern touring is right now. ---->>>

My concerts are about me being very private in public, but I'm very protective. ---->>>

My father opened a restaurant. It's so amazing... it's so freaking delicious, but I'm telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there. ---->>>

My mother always wanted to give back. ---->>>

I don't care about money. ---->>>

I don't think that women need to smell interesting. ---->>>

I just want to keep writing music. ---->>>

I love being able to be political without any political affiliation. ---->>>

I never intended for the Monster Ball to be a religious experience, it just became one. ---->>>

I write music every day. ---->>>

I'm an inventor. ---->>>

I'm very free-spirited. ---->>>

I've had grand pianos that are more expensive than, like, a year's worth of rent. ---->>>

If I can be a leader, I will. ---->>>

If you know me, and you call me Stefani, you don't really know me at all. ---->>>

It has been hard for me to find it, but I have found love. ---->>>

Speaking purely from a musical standpoint, I think I am a great performer. ---->>>

That is what fame is, isn't it? To get the world to fall in love with you. ---->>>

When I was younger, I felt pressure to become someone else once I became successful. ---->>>

I hope that what you take away from my album is not just the music - which I did want to be fun, and I did want it to be about individuality, but please also take away from it that there's no dream that's too big. ---->>>

Don't say I hate institutionalised religion - rather than saying I hate those things, which I do not, what I'm saying is that perhaps there is a way of opening more doors, rather than closing so many. ---->>>

I don't like L.A. It's just not fun. I don't know why, but I just don't get it. You have to drive to get everywhere, and when it rains everybody freaks out. ---->>>

My records are borderline dance records. They've got a real electro-rock heart and soul, and the vibe of the sentiment is pop, but there's a lot of people that were like, 'This is a dance record.' ---->>>

You start to become successful, and everybody starts to drive your money train to the bank, and they're not thinking anymore about what you want as an artist or if any of that even matters to you. It genuinely upsets people in my life that I don't care about money, and that's not my problem. ---->>>

In order for me to be successful... In order to be a great artist - musician, actor, painter, whatever - you must be able to be private in public at all times. That is what we do. ---->>>
