In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, Lady Gaga revealed the source of her creative energy: "I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they're going to take my creativity from me through my vagina."
Now, the pop superstar has opened up to i-D Magazine about how her abstinence-protected talent is being put to use. She says that her third album, due in January, is "my absolute greatest work I've ever done, and I'm so excited about it."
Of course, playing it safe is not an option. "The message, the melodies, the direction, the meaning, what it will mean to my fans and what it will mean to me in my own life -- it's utter liberation. I'm on a quest to create the anthem for my generation for the next decade, so that's what I've done."
Please, as if lyrics like "I want your Psycho, your Vertigo shtick" weren't already anthems for our generation.
However, there's still no word on who the Lady worked with this time around. "I will never tell because as soon as I tell, everyone starts working with them. So all I can say is that nobody knows who they are. They're all new." Gaga also isn't sure if she wants to collaborate with other pop stars. "At the moment, I don't want to feature anyone; I just want to stand on my own two feet," she said.
And don't think this feature omits a discussion of her genitals. When asked about how she plans to keep her career moving forward, she said, "I will always have as much penis as I do vagina. And, no, I'm not going to explain that; it's part of the answer."
In other words, the usual.
