I’ve been on the fence about Gaga all summer.  One day I hate her, the next I completely love her… But after seeing her perform on Saturday Night Live this weekend, I was won over.  She’s crazy (like literally batsh-t crazy), but she also has raw talent which I can respect.  And in a few of the latest interviews I’ve read she comes across as a little more genuine and honest than I’ve heard her be… Well, ever.

We’ll see how long I like Gaga (it might only last this week), but at the moment I think I’d go see her in concert and I at least respect how she works so hard to please her fans and be interesting.  She’s certainly not a role model, but she’s fun to watch.

Anyways new interview:

Lady Gaga may be known for her attention-grabbing outfits and elaborate stage persona, but when the pop singer accepted her Rising Star award at Billboard’s Women in Music luncheon last Friday, she was the picture of humility.

“I know that I do talk about ambition and fearlessness,” said Gaga, “but at the very simple heart of it, I’m just an Italian girl from New York who really wants to make her mom and dad proud.”

In fact, Gaga fought back tears while thanking her parents during her acceptance speech for the Rising Star award. As Beyoncé — who would later accept her award for Woman of the Year — looked on, Gaga thanked Billboard for “always remembering to highlight my songwriting abilities and that I’m not a newcomer. I think that it’s an important moment for new artists…artists that are in the cities just like I was with a piano and an idea and a dream.”

Later, NBC interviewed the singer about how her family supported her burgeoning music career, even when she was just a teenager known only as Stefani Germanotta. “I was playing at The Bitter End when I was 16 years old,” Gaga recalled. “My mom used take me in and she’d say, ‘My daughter’s too young to be in here, but she is a songwriter and she’s very good.'”

When asked whether she felt any pressure to keep upstaging herself with more hit songs and dramatic red carpet fashion, Gaga was quick to answer: “Yes. Yes, I do. And I think I can speak for my beautiful Beyoncé here, when I say that she has been one-upping herself for a long time, and she’s done a fabulous job.”

Sneak peak from Interview magazine where the tattoo pictures are from:

This past summer, while winding down her Fame Ball world tour in Japan, Lady Gaga gave us an exclusive look at a side of the Haus of Gaga that most fans never get to see: her life offstage, which, unsurprisingly, is just as wildly insane as her life on stage. Here, we present Gaga (with handwritten notes by the Lady herself), as she takes Tokyo and Osaka, gets inked (twice) and then prepares for an S&M scene with the legendary Japanese photographer Araki. The Gaga epidemic has clearly gone global.

INTERVIEW: Your album The Fame came out last year, but, inarguably, 2009 has been the year of Gaga. How are you feeling?

LADY GAGA: It’s been a life-changing year for me creatively as a musician and a performance artist. I walk away from the Fame Ball humbled by my little monsters-my fans-and proud of the Haus for all its successes amidst the adversity of the industry. We killed it.

INTERVIEW: You got two tattoos in Japan. What’s the one on your inner arm that you got in Osaka?

LADY GAGA: That one commemorates my favorite writer, Rainer Maria Rilke, a poet and romantic philosopher. In German he writes, “Confess to yourself in the deepest hour of the night whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. Dig deep into your heart, where the answer spreads its roots in your being, and ask yourself solemnly, Must I write?”

INTERVIEW: What about the second love tattoo on your shoulder, the one you got in Tokyo?

LADY GAGA: That was to celebrate the Haus’s collaboration with legendary Japanese photographer Araki. I was bound by Araki’s personal bondage artist, by several ropes and Japanese knots, and through a visceral bondage and sexual-torture experience, Araki photographed me, using a series of several cameras. He did not photograph my image; he photographed my soul. We spent the night with Araki and his friends at a members’ only bar he’s owned for more than 20 years, where he displays his work. Here, he painted me and took Polaroids through the night. I was honored to be the first American woman he’s photographed, and only the second pop artist, in the company of Björk. He signed the Polaroids “Tokyo Love,” and the Haus got tattoos of his marking in celebration.

INTERVIEW: Lady Gaga fans are some of the most obsessive out there right now. How do you relate to them?

LADY GAGA: I love my little monsters. Now I live and create only for them.
