Lady Gaga 'I choose fantasy and reality'


Lady Gaga has confessed that she prefers to live "halfway between reality and fantasy".
The 'Judas' singer revealed that she believes strongly in "magic" and refuses to compromise her ideals in order to fit in with the status quo. 
"I live halfway between reality and fantasy at all times because I choose to, and anyone can choose that, and I believe everybody has something so magical about themselves and why, as a society, are we so afraid of magic?" she said in an interview for the Financial Times. 
"Why is magic synonymous with artifice? Why is the fantastic synonymous with a lie? If art is a lie, then I will tell that lie every day until it's f**king true." 
Gaga also expressed her frustration with critics who seem to lack understanding of what she is trying to achieve as an artist. 
"What are you looking for? I'm sitting right here, I've got my legs spread with my feet up on the couch, what is it more that you want to see?" she said. 
"It's an interesting fight, the performance of my life, every day reminding people that the curtain has not closed and that if they don't want to sit in the audience, that's fine."
Gaga has insisted that she is not interested in the money that comes along with her fame.
In an interview with Stephen Fry for The Financial Times, the weirdo singer confessed that she prefers to invest money in her elaborate stage productions rather than spend it on frivolous things and revealed that she "actually went bankrupt" following her 'Monster Ball' tour last year.
GaGa explained: "It's honestly true that money means nothing to me. The only big things I've purchased are my dad's heart valve and a Rolls Royce for my parents, for their anniversary. And that was only because my dad had a Lady Gaga licence plate on our old car and it was making me crazy because he was getting followed everywhere, so I bought him a new car.
"Other than that I put everything in the show, and I actually went bankrupt after the first extension of The Monster Ball. And it was funny because I didn't know! And I remember I called everybody and said, "Why is every­one saying I have no money? This is ridiculous, I have five number one singles' and they said, 'Well, you're $3m in debt'."
Gaga went on to say that she resents the notion that her outlandish fashion sense might imply a lack of sincerity about the topics she covers in her songs.
"You all have an opinion about pop singers or public figures, that ... we only care about ourselves, and how could it be possible that a woman like me who loves theatre and loves fantasy and loves magic, how could it be possible that I could really mean what I'm saying?" she added.
"I would say that's quite anti-feminism, isn't it, to say that a woman based on the way that she wears her hair and her shoes would not be sincere."
