Lady Gaga wants to make something clear: She and boyfriend Taylor Kinney aren’t as different as people think.
The “Do What U Want” singer, 27, called her buff-bodied hottie a “hidden weirdo” during an appearance Friday on Ellen. “He is extremely strange, actually. We complement each other’s weirdness. That’s actually one of the first things he ever said to me. It’s a Dr. Seuss quote. You find in someone else a compatible weirdness.”
Gaga, who met the Chicago Fire star on the set of her “You and I” video in 2011, said she “looked ridiculously crazy” during their first encounter.
“I’ve got these pins sticking out of my head and I’m wearing cork and I’ve got no hair and I’m bald,” she recalls of that fateful day. “I mean, why he found me attractive just completely behooves me. We were in the middle of this scene and I remember that he kissed me and it wasn’t scripted for him to kiss me. I was sort of like, ‘Uh, you know, was that real or was that fake?’ And he just didn’t really say anything, and that was fine by me and we just kept filming.”
The pop star – who said in 2011 that she has “the inability to know what happiness feels like with a man” – covered her face in embarrassment when a particular photo popped up. Naturally, she couldn’t look away for long.
“Oh, you had to show a shirtless picture,” she said. “Geez. I mean I don’t blame you, but – Hi, darling.”
Gaga, who calls Kinney, 32, her “best friend,” says, “Having your lover be your best friend is the best thing ever. We’re boys. I wear his flannels and we eat pizza and watch TV. And then I play him my next single. He likes it, and that’s our normal life.”
She’s already Mother Monster, but when the time is right Lady Gaga says she wants some real-life babies to call her own.
“I want to have tons of kids, actually. I think at least three,” the “Applause” singer told SiriusXM listeners gathered Friday for a Town Hall discussion at SiriusXM studios in New York City.
“I really want to have a family and I really want to nurture my children,” said the singer, who is gearing up for a performance in space.
“To be honest, having my own kids will be like having three little monsters with me all the time. They probably won’t be fans,” she added.
Gaga, 27, said her own tight-knit family fuels her maternal instincts.
“I grew up with a very strong family and I just cannot imagine not having a normal nuclear family,” she said.
Gaga didn’t say whether she plans to have kids with boyfriend Taylor Kinney, but she does make it clear she is committed enough to the relationship to make his adopted city of Chicago her home base. Kinney, 32, films Chicago Fire in the Windy City.
“I’ve been living a lot in Chicago mostly and I actually find Chicago to be really, really cool about me and what I do,” she said.
Plus, even she can’t resist their famous pizza.
“I love ordering Chicago pizza. My boyfriend caught me once eating it in the bathroom in the middle of the night,” she confessed. “I woke up in the middle of the night … and I walked it into the bathroom and I was eating it. And I heard the … door opening. I had the pizza in my mouth and he just shook his head at me and he was like, ‘That is just shameful.’ ”
Jokes aside, these days, Gaga said she no longer stresses about every bite she takes.
“I’ve been eating whatever I want now,” she said. “I used to give myself such a heart attack about every little thing. I had really bad eating disorders growing up. I think the Born This Way Ball really healed me.”
“I just want to be happy,” she added. “I really want to be happy. And I want my fans to be happy, too.”
There are pop stars and there are rock stars—but there’s only one Lady Gaga. Prolific, polarizing, and passionate in the extreme, the Grammy winner formerly known as Stefani Germanotta has molded herself into an icon in just a few short years. But her proudest achievement? She made the world a more tolerant place. In her interview, Gaga tells Bravo’s Andy Cohen exactly how she did it. Plus, don’t miss our exclusive video with the superstar.

I would like to thank everyone from the Supreme Court to every legislator and political leader that has ever stood with us. I am so fortunate to have been welcomed by all of you into the LGBT community and to this family … Our evolution as LGBT citizens always continues to change and we see that the further we are able to reveal and share our lives, the further we move into the hearts and minds of other Americans. When I was in high school and grade school and younger, I was considered to be an outcast and I just couldn’t find my place. Where did I fit in? And I look back on that time and I remember feeling that I was cut from a different mold.
There was a particular crowd who did accept me. There was a particular crowd who made room for me at their table, who held me up when I felt I couldn’t, who loved me for exactly who I was. It was you. And to stand here equal to you tonight.
I’ve always had since then this strange relationship with God. I didn’t know if God was real or what God meant. I certainly didn’t know what he meant to America and it was because I felt so damaged, so destroyed, so degraded by those kids at school, by my own psychological struggles. My body. The men in the business who only wanted me for sex, money, as I tried to keep a famous face and carry on.
But then it was you that saved me. You saved me, my friends in the LGBT community time and time again. And I saw God for the first real time in all of you. You were sent to me like angels to protect me and to save me. It was you who understood my need to hide behind the wigs, the glasses, the glamour, the clothing … I get to see God every day when I’m with you.
We’re connected. It’s like a vein. And I’m yours if you’ll have me. You’ll always be mine … Now I get to say that I knew you when. Now I get to say I knew you when you suffered, when you felt unequal, when you felt there was nothing to look forward to. I knew you then and I knew you when but I really know you now.
Don’t expect to spot Kelly Osbourne at a Lady Gaga concert anytime soon.
After Osbourne opened up to Fabulous Magazine about being cyber bullied by Lady Gaga fans, the singer responded in the form of a lengthy open letter on her website.
“While I wish you had reached out to me personally, as the head of the Born This Way foundation with my mother Cynthia, we would like to respond,” Gaga begins. “Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers.”
The tone, however, quickly changes when the superstar turns the finger at Osbourne’s E! Fashion Police hosting gig.
“I have empathy for you Kelly, but I feel it culturally important to note that you have chosen a less compassionate path,” she writes. “Your show breeds negativity, and over the years has even become comedic in nature. It glorifies you and Joan Rivers pointing in the camera, laughing, and making jokes about artists and celebrities as if we are zoo animals.”
She ends the letter by apologizing for her fans’ behavior, but asks the E! host to reevaluate herself.
Needless, to say Osbourne was not pleased: “Hope you guys realize that I don’t care about any of this bull—-! I know who I am I don’t need anyone to tell me,” Osbourne Tweeted.
But the star’s mother, Sharon Osbourne, had some choice words for Gaga, calling the singer a “hypocrite” and an “attention seeker” in her own open letter. The America’s Got Talent Judge writes, “I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter. Are you so desperate that you needed to make this public?”
She concludes: “A word from you would stop all the hideous, negative and vile threats from your ‘little monsters.’ ”
The younger Osbourne used a quote from one of Hollywood’s most famous stars to conclude the rift, Tweeting: “‘When a man gives his opinion, he’s a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she’s a bitch.’ – Bette Davis.”
Osbourne’s Fashion Police costar, Joan Rivers, also chimed. “Fashion Police is a comedy show; anyone that comes out of an egg should figure that out,” she told E! Online, referring to Lady Gaga’s arrival to the 2011 Grammy Awards.

Lady Gaga has been left heartbroken by the scenes of destruction in her native New York after super storm Sandy wreaked havoc across the country’s East Coast on Monday.
The Born This Way singer was on tour in Puerto Rico when the post-tropical hurricane made landfall, and she admits she was plunged into despair as she watched the disaster unfold in her home state.
Gaga took to her Little Monsters blog to offer support to the victims of the storm, admitting she felt as though her “entire childhood is underwater” as New Yorkers work to rebuild the damaged city streets.
In a post entitled Hurricane Blues, she writes, “I’m not sure where to put these feelings. I’m so sad. I feel like my entire childhood is underwater. The boardwalk in Atlantic City (in New Jersey), my old apts (apartments) in Brooklyn and LES (Lower East Side). All the bars and friends.
“I’m just so sad. I know it will be OK. I’m not sure why I feel this way. Maybe homesickness, or maybe it’s easier to be a gypsy if you know your soul grows from somewhere great. And that great place protected me my whole life, now parts are destroyed. Just very sad and pensive today. Thinking of everyone today.”

In a keynote address at the recent Music Matters conference in Singapore, Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter compared the protest of the artist’s Indonesian show to crucifixion and called the icon “a 200-lb toddler” who has yet to “make it” in the traditional sense.
“It’s less about Gaga than it really is what’s happening in the world right now as a whole,” Carter said when pushed to speak about the Jakarta protesters. “This is a microcosm. It’s a generational divide. Jesus Christ got crucified. It happens.”
Carter, who got his start working with urban artists like Eve, Diddy, and Will Smith, quickly insisted that Gaga would not be changing anything about herself to fit markets like Jakarta, residents of which took offense to some of the Grammy winner’s provocative lyrics and music videos. When asked if Gaga would transform the “Born This Way Ball” in any way, Carter responded, “we’ll skip them.”
However, Carter insisted that Gaga and her team had loved every moment of their trip to Asia thus far, claiming “Asia is a very loyal audience and an audience that really, really loves music….it’s not a passive audience at all…we plan on spending a lot more time here.”
Though the manager wouldn’t confirm details about Gaga’s rumored fall LP, he spoke briefly on the singer’s contract with Interscope. “We have I think three records left with Universal [Interscope]. There may be a [record label] system there by the time her deal’s up that looks more attractive.”
Asked by interviewer Michael Schneider whether Gaga has “made it” yet, Carter bluntly said no, comparing the star to a “200-lb toddler.”
Gaga has yet to announce American dates for the “Born This Way Ball,” but Carter notes that she plans to tour extensively while playing Foxy Bingo on the tour bus until the end of next spring. It’s gonna be an additional year before that tour is over. It’s a long album cycle but it’s part of the storytelling.”
“Born This Way” topped the Billboard 200 following its May 2011 release.
