Do you ever wonder what Lady Gaga does when it’s just her and her man at home together? Does she put on sweatpants and watch TV with him, or does she continue to give birth to stuff, wear flesh-mutilating headgear, and say bombastic things about herself like she’s still onstage? According to a report from InTouch, it’s the latter.
“A source” says Gaga’s new dude Taylor Kinney is not too stoked on her inability to separate her real, everyday self from the character she plays. “Gaga started living and breathing her character 24/7 because she felt her fans wanted that,” said the source. This hews pretty closely to the gripes voiced by Gaga herself (dressed in drag as Jo Calderone) at the VMAs this past fall: “I want her to be real, but she says Jo, I’m not real. I’m theater! And you and I…this is just rehearsal.”
I can see how this would be annoying for someone who cares not just about the made-up character Lady Gaga, but the real person Stefani Germanotta as well. Then again, if you want someone to be real with you and not constantly “on,” maybe you shouldn’t date a self-described “fame monster.”
That said, I’m pretty sure this story is bullshit, because I’ve heard several firsthand accounts from people who know Gaga’s ex, Luc Carl, that she’s actually pretty normal when she’s having downtime with her friends and her man. I mean, as normal as it’s possible for Lady Gaga to be. If the story is true, it must be a recent development.
