It's not easy to find love when you're Mother Monster. With millions of fans around the world, it's her fans -- and creativity -- that give her fulfillment, not a man.
"I have an inability to know what happiness feels like with a man," the singer tells Vanity Fair in their January issue. "When I fight with someone I’m in a relationship with, I think, what would my fans think if they knew this was happening? How would they feel about my work and about me as a female if they knew I was allowing this to go on? And then I get out."
Does this mean that Gaga's rumored relationship with "The Vampire Diaries" stud, Taylor Kinney, fizzled into a bad romance? The native New Yorker reveals that she doesn't have the best track record when it comes to relationships.
"I have this effect on people where it starts out good. Then, when I’m in these relationships with people who are also creative, or creative in their own way, what happens is the attraction is initially there and it’s all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me."
But Gaga has always put her fans and her art first, and it's just something that she feels guys are going to have to get over. The singers recently gave one little monster a special surprise by taping a video in support of his anti-bullying campaign.
"I had a man say to me, 'You will die alone in a house bigger than you know, with all your money and hit records, and you will die alone.'"
That doesn't mean that Gaga is ready to give up on love just yet. In fact, she's already on the hunt for her next bad romance. The singer recently told the UK entertainment rag, Sun magazine, that when it comes to her next beau, her requirements in new man "ranges from a really big d*** to a degree at Harvard."
