Lady Gaga is honored in Glamour Magazine’s 2013 ‘Women of the Year’ issue.
The Grammy winner opened up to guest interviewer and personal fan of hers, Bravo talk show host Andy Cohen, about what keeps her confident and who the star really is underneath the wild costumes….
Check out excerpts from the issue below.
On having confidence:
“Yeah. 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.”
On considering herself to be beautiful:
“Not conventionally beautiful. 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. 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.”
On using her costumes to hide insecurities:
“I would say that I am. Maybe it’s from the things I experienced in my past, you know? Being beautiful is not so fun when you’re in a business with all men.”
