Lady Gaga Covers ‘attitude’ Magazine [December’13]

attitude-gaga

 

Lady Gaga‘s got a new attitude!!

The “Do What U Want” singer covers the December issue of attitude magazine. In this holiday issues, Gaga reveals that she smoked 15 marijuana blunts in one day. In addition to that, Gaga chats about her feud with Madonna. Check out some snippets from her feature below.

On using marijuana as a pain reliever:
“I was smoking 15 joints a day. It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip. I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself and then sleeping it off and then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was.”

On her crew’s help with kicking the addiction:
“[My performance artist Marina Abramovic] said, ‘OK, you’re coming to my house – no television, no computer, no marijuana, no nothing, not food. For three days, art only. You eat only art. Now I smoke a little bit at night just, you know, for fun. But not to cope – that’s the difference. I’m the soberest I’ve ever been in the past five years.”

On her feud with Madonna:
“I I looked up to her for a long time. I’m not quite sure what her intention was [with the ‘Born This Way] and ‘Express Yourself’ mashup performance] to do that in the show, but I don’t really care. I think playing in the gossip of the tabloids and, I guess the fodder of the competition, that’s just not what I’m about. She chooses to use her voice the way she chooses to use hers and I choose to use mine the way I use mine. All it mean to me that Madonna Ciccone was singing my song on her stage and I’m 27! And as a punk-rocker from New York, I’m basically been hoping that I would become so good that one day I would piss off Madonna!”

Katy Perry Covers ‘Entertainment Weekly’

Katy Perry is dressed in leather for this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly.

With a newly released album, Perry is busier than ever!

Perry chats with EW about Mayer, who inspired the track “Legendary Lovers,” her non-existent rivalry with Lady Gaga and her thoughts on Miley Cyrus.
On boyfriend John Mayer:

“I actually wrote it in an email one time, and after I wrote it I looked — we had a long courtship before anything was [public], just writing letters to each other — and seeing ‘legendary lovers,’ it sounded so nice. Some things float into my mind, and I process them, and [then] I make songs about them.”

On fellow singer Miley Cyrus:

“She’s what, 19 or 20? She’s just living her life. She’s super young, and there’s no directing book on how to do this. Each of us find our own way, and some of us make it out alive and some of us don’t. I mean, Madonna was naked [too]. The thing is, people come to me and ask me, out of default, what I think about all these girls, but at the end of it all I shouldn’t be considered the behavior police, because I’m not always going to be on my best behavior!”

On “alleged” Lady Gaga:

“Gaga and I like to publicly dismiss it because it’s not healthy. You want to feel music. You want it to resonate and relate to you. You can’t look at it like a competition because you ruin the reason why you love music. But I think that sometimes our fan groups are so big and strong, they use it as ammunition.”

Madonna Covers Harper’s Bazaar Magazine

Madonna takes over her own interview for the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

In this issue Madge reflects on her career, her marriages, motherhood and much more.

Check out some snippets from her interview below. For the full interview, visit www.harpersbaszaar.com.

On what was considered norm when she was a teen:

Teenagers want to fit in on one hand and be rebellious on the other. Drinking beer and smoking weed in the parking lot of my high school was not my idea of being rebellious, because that’s what everybody did. And I never wanted to do what everybody did. I thought it was cooler to not shave my legs or under my arms. I mean, why did God give us hair there anyways? Why didn’t guys have to shave there? Why was it accepted in Europe but not in America? No one could answer my questions in a satisfactory manner, so I pushed the envelope even further. I refused to wear makeup and tied scarves around my head like a Russian peasant. I did the opposite of what all the other girls were doing, and I turned myself into a real man repeller. I dared people to like me and my nonconformity.

On studying Kabbalah:

When the world discovered I was studying Kabbalah, I was accused of joining a cult. I was accused of being brainwashed. Of giving away all my money. I was accused of all sorts of crazy things. If I became a Buddhist—put an altar in my house and started chanting “Nam-myoho-renge-kyo”—no one would have bothered me at all. I mean no disrespect to Buddhists, but Kabbalah really freaked people out. It still does. Now, you would think that studying the mystical interpretation of the Old Testament and trying to understand the secrets of the universe was a harmless thing to do. I wasn’t hurting anybody. Just going to class, taking notes in my spiral notebook, contemplating my future. I was actually trying to become a better person.

On her decision adopting her first child:

Then I decided that I had an embarrassment of riches and that there were too many children in the world without parents or families to love them. I applied to an international adoption agency and went through all the bureaucracy, testing, and waiting that everyone else goes through when they adopt. As fate would have it, in the middle of this process a woman reached out to me from a small country in Africa called Malawi, and told me about the millions of children orphaned by AIDS. Before you could say “Zikomo Kwambiri,” I was in the airport in Lilongwe heading to an orphanage in Mchinji, where I met my son David. And that was the beginning of another daring chapter of my life. I didn’t know that trying to adopt a child was going to land me in another shit storm. But it did. I was accused of kidnapping, child trafficking, using my celebrity muscle to jump ahead in the line, bribing government officials, witchcraft, you name it. Certainly I had done something illegal!

On being daring:

When you’re 25, it’s a little bit easier to be daring, especially if you are a pop star, because eccentric behavior is expected from you. By then I was shaving under my arms, but I was also wearing as many crucifixes around my neck as I could carry, and telling people in interviews that I did it because I thought Jesus was sexy. Well, he was sexy to me, but I also said it to be provocative. I have a funny relationship with religion. I’m a big believer in ritualistic behavior as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody. But I’m not a big fan of rules. And yet we cannot live in a world without order. But for me, there is a difference between rules and order. Rules people follow without question. Order is what happens when words and actions bring people together, not tear them apart. Yes, I like to provoke; it’s in my DNA. But nine times out of 10, there’s a reason for it.

 

Miley Cyrus Talks Misconceptions with NOTION Magazine

Miley Cyrus covers the 65th issue of Notion magazine; a British fashion and lifestyle publication.

Although the cover has not been officially revealed, some of Cyrus’ interview has already hit the web. Notion’s Michael Cragg chatted with Miley about public misconceptions, why she hasn’t dropped her surname and why she isn’t the ratchet girl people think she is.

The magazine hinted via their Facebook page that the issue would be available (or maybe the cover would be revealed) on August 29.

On changing her name:

“I was thinking about dropping the Cyrus and just being Miley, but there’s something powerful about the fact that my name now is like a household name.”

On not being the ratchet Caucasian girl people paint her to be:

“People have this misconception of me that I’m just one of these kids on TV and that now I go off and party and I’m just this ratchet white girl, and I’m not,” she tells Notion. “I work really really hard, I’m just in a different environment. I’m young and living and in LA which is everyone’s dream, you know.”
