Lady Gaga In Vogue: Shows Skin, Talks Family
Lady Gaga: daddy's little girl? You betcha.
The uber-talented, controversial singer, known for her onstage blood, cursing and near nudity, gives a long interview with Vogue Magazine, taking them on the road during the tail end of her three year tour. It seemed she was eager to get back home to New York, and the family she's still very close with.
Gaga opened up about her relationship with her parents, Joe and Cynthia Germanotta, who live on the Upper West Side of New York City. Before her dad had a heart attack, he was very involved in her career, which began in the piano bars of New York City. Even when she's on the road, she makes sure to speak with them often.
"I obsess about his health," she said about her father. "I'm very Italian. I call him every day. I ask my mother if he's been smoking. They are in their 50s, and they still live in the same apartment on the Upper West Side. Nothing has changed since I have become a star. I am a real family girl. When it comes to love and loyalty, I am very old-fashioned. And I am quite down-to-earth for such an eccentric person."
She might also ask a few questions about business; the singer and her parents are investors in an Italian restaurant in the city called Vince & Eddie's.
Talking with CBS' Anderson Cooper in a "60 Minutes" interview set to air on Sunday, the Grammy-winner said that her parents still call her Stefani. So do a few other people -- those in her bedroom. "That would freak me out," she says about being called Lady Gaga during intimate times.
