HARPER’S BAZAAR: How have you changed in the past few years?

LADY GAGA: I’m actually not very different at all. I work all day, do research, sketch my ideas, prepare for performances. My experience with fame has been the opposite: “How can I stop this from changing me?” I mean I’m not broke anymore—that’s good! But today I’m more comfortable with being who I am. When I was younger, I felt pressure to become someone else once I became successful. But it’s the intention of the work that’s changed. I have fans now. I have a new purpose: to remind them that I am one of them, that we are one another. My consciousness has changed.

HB: What was the first big musical moment in your life?

LG: I went to see Phantom of the Opera with my grandma and my mom when I was very little. The stage, the voice, the music?…Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has been a massive inspiration to me for some time—the storytelling, that deliciously somber undertone in his music. I just knew that he could see it while he was creating it. It is the same way I experience music.

HB: Romeo & Juliet or Titanic?

LG: Romeo & Juliet—both the Shakespeare and the Baz [Luhrmann] versions I was changed by profoundly as a child. But I have to say, Titanic is also a classic.

HB: John Lennon or Paul McCartney?

LG: I love Paul so much, but I was and will always be a Lennon girl.

HB: Do you believe in ghosts?

LG: Yes. I have many old souls around me all the time.

HB: What are your guilty pleasures?

LG: Russian hookers and cheap gin. At least I’m honest.
