Oprah Gets Up Close And Personal With Lady Gaga
Letting Oprah know more than once that she fully trusted her, Lady Gaga opened up her heart and her home for the first time in a revealing interview regarding her creative process, her family, her desire for children and much more.
Coming off last week’s big coup (sitting down with Whitney Houston‘s family) Oprah secured what might be Gaga’s last interview for some time, featuring her mother Cynthia and set in their New York City apartment.
“Other than this interview, Oprah, I don’t intend to speak to anyone for a very long time. I have to shut out the noise,” the “Mother Monster” told Oprah. “The latest thing I do is I don’t read a damn thing. 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…I shut it all off.”
The special included footage from Gaga’s recent launch of her Born This Way Foundation at prestigious university Harvard, where the iconic artist (only 25 years of age herself) spoke eloquently about her fight against bullying and her campaign for self-empowerment alongside a panel that included the sister of Jamey Rodemeyer, a 14-year-old bullying victim who tragically hung himself last year. According to Gaga, The Born This Way Foundation seeks to empower the youth of America. “How can we inspire young people to know they have the power to be brave?” she asked earnestly.
