Lady Gaga sings like a bird in the September issue of Vanity Fair, opening up about drug use, isolation, success and the extremely private place where she stores her creativity.

“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina,” Gaga says.

Talk about a bad romance!

“I’m perpetually lonely. I’m lonely when I’m in relationships. It’s my condition as an artist,” she explains.


The Lady also cops to an artist cliché -- drug use. That time in her life, she says, was “a low point, and it led to disaster,” but instead of waiting for court-ordered rehab, she turned to her family. Her mother enlisted the help of Gaga’s 82-year-old grandmother to help set the singer straight.

“She said, ‘I’m gonna let you cry for a few more hours,’ ” Gaga recalls. “And then after those few hours are up, you’re gonna stop crying, you’re gonna pick yourself up, you’re gonna go back to New York,” where, Grandma added, Gaga should be prepared to kick some, ahem, butt.

Later this week, the mag will reveal the contents of Lady Gaga’s purse, the thought process behind some of her more formal ensembles and much more.
