Lady Gaga: “It’s a very happy time in my life.”
After hip surgery and parting ways with her longtime manager, Lady Gaga says things are looking up.
"I’ve very centered now. I meditate a lot. I’m happy. I am more sober than I’ve ever been," the singer said interview this week. "It’s a very happy time in my life.Part of what was making my sort of artistic experience so unpleasant was that I felt that I was not able to truly freely fly as an artist," she said. "In some ways my talents were not being used to their full potential."
Gaga says part of her happier state of mind comes from working with Tony Bennett on the album “Cheek to Cheek,” out on Tuesday.
AP: You sound like you’re in a good place. Is that spilling over to the new music you’re creating?
Gaga: It is in the very super early stages. I’m always writing music. I was up all the other night here in Istanbul writing and they had a lovely piano in my room and I was so excited, especially when I get to pay a real stringed piano, not an electronic one, that always makes me happy. I’ve been writing some records that I really sort of surprised at myself. I have a lot of pain built over the past few years. It was very difficult being on the road for this “Born This Way Ball” without having a full, proper team around me. I was going through a lot of pain with my body that led to the hip surgery. I call it the “Pain of fame.” …Your life changes a lot and the people that around you, they change too. Money makes people crazy and they see your life change and all of the luxuries and the things that come with becoming a star and they think, “I’ve known her my whole life … or I’ve been here this whole time, I deserve all of that too.”
AP: U2 released its new album alongside Apple, and Jay Z and Beyonce also released recent albums in unconventional ways. What do you think about that and do you think of innovative ways to release music when readying a project?
Gaga: I think honestly what we need to be doing, and this is my opinion, is instead of trying to find ways to trick the world into focusing on the album for a brief moment, I think that artists need to speak more about how media treats the artists and making the distinction between the celebrity and the artist, because everything is all in one pool now isn’t it? We’re all the same and they’re some pretty terrible celebrities out there, let’s be honest, right? People famous for no reason. So, I think the more the media can help us to support the artist and support music in a way that’s maybe less critical for journalists that are not as knowledgeable about music and help to just spread the music and see the music as gift to the world.
I really believe that once the press becomes more kind I think a lot of the things in the universe are going to change. It makes me scared when I hear that there’s pro-ISIS (Islamic State in Syria) rallies in America because I think that social media has created this sort of negative undertone in the universe. People feel that they can say or do anything; it makes them feel a sort of comfort when really it’s just giving hatred a petri dish to fester. I know that was sort of a random answer for a question about album marketing. I really believe it lies in the hearts in the people that are writing about the music. The more we honor and support the artist, the more the art will live on forever. Otherwise, it’s going to continue to be what I think pop music is now, which is sort of this giant tabloid. It’s become quite trashy in my opinion.

When they put swine in the club 

Look at my precious, beautiful baby, though. Let me start off with the box it comes in and the design of the bottle. It’s so freaking pretty to look at, isn’t it? It has that mysterious, gloomy, sexual vibe to it and you will just want to know what’s hidden within. All there is to say is that the design is on point. The fragrance itself has a way too orgasmic smell to it, it can’t even be fully described. You simply got to smell it yourself in order to understand. When wearing it however, you’ll feel extremely classy, expensive and sexy; it gives you bursts of confidence & makes you feel that nothing nor nobody can defeat you. I love that about it. After you first spray it on, you will recognize an intense (sparkling) lime smell, and after it fades a little, the white violet and instinct leather come through and it is incredibly lovely to sniff. Personally, I adore the masculine part in the perfume, but then it also has this woody yet still sweet feminine smell to it, which makes the perfect blend. It is truly a unisex scent just as Gaga foretold. It’s like man and woman are meeting each other halfway, merging into one. I would highly recommend getting it to absolutely anyone, once it is available in your country. ….or at least giving it a try at your local perfumery first. (I’m from Germany, and for me it was released Sep 15th). It’s highly addictive and so arousing. I for my part love it so much, and all I can say really is that my idol did such a great job at creating this magnificent stuff. She is truly so so talented in the most different of areas, and I’m beyond proud of her. Also extremely appreciative of her 
a m a z i n g work. 

Cheers to EAU DE GAGA!
