Lady Gaga‘s triumphant return to music is marked with a feature in ELLE magazine.
In the October issue of the magazine, Gaga reveals why she ‘change’ her name, how she handles pressure and more. She even discusses her past struggles in life.
Gaga was photographed by Ruth Hogben for this feature.
Check out some of Gaga’s ELLE interview below.
On how she handles pressure:
“What are you talking about, pressure? I’m great under pressure. I’m a warrior. I’m Rocky, round 12.”
On her past struggles:
“Everyone is so cynical – that I can’t purely love my fans, or share an honest story about my past, without someone asking if I really truly struggled. Do you know how much dirt I ate? Do you know the men I had to crawl through, the people that disrespected my body, my mind, my heart?”
On her return to music:
“I went to look back to myself being 19, with all my Warhol books and all my Yoko Ono and John Lennon CDs, my Rolling Stones CDs and my Bowie… and I said, what would she want me to do right now? Well she’d want you to call Jeff Koons and Robert Wilson and Marina Abramovic and Inez and Vinoodh… and that’s what I did!”
On who and how she is off stage:
“I am – Stefani is – a perpetually tortured artist. That’s why I changed my name. I can’t be her in public. She would be a mess!”
The Eli Reed Collection’s Lennon T-Shirt, was designed by pro-skater Eli Reed. The shirt currently retails at $35.00 and it is available for sale at Supreme and Opening Ceremony. The unique aspect of Reed’s shirt, is that at first glance you think it’s the signature John Lennon shirt found in various retail stores, instead it’s actually the Lennon shirt with a twist. The shirt currently comes in a variety of colors and sizes.
Pro skater Eli Reed launched The Eli Reed Collection in 2011. The Boston native’s love of prints and snapbacks led him to create a line of men’s shirts, hats and unisex socks.
Seems s though VH1, is scraping the bottom of the barrel these days for new show ideas. VH1 has just announced that it will air a 7 episode installment of a show they’re calling Famous Crime Scene.
