Gaga on tough times

Lady Gaga is bored with people being so cynical.

The singer is tired of being known for her outrageous antics and flamboyant dress sense. She is also bored of being criticising her for being disingenuous when she speaks of her fans, insisting they mean the world to her.

"Everyone is so cynical - that I can't purely love my fans, or share an honest story about my past, without someone asking me if I really, truly struggled," she fumed to the American edition of Elle magazine. "Do you know how much dirt I ate? Do you know the men I had to crawl through, the people that disrespected my body, my mind, my heart?"

The 27-year-old is adamant few people have worked as hard as she has. She struggled and fought to get to the top of the pop game, explaining that is one of the reasons why she created her alter ego Lady Gaga - the real name is Stefani Germanotta

"I am - Stefani is - a perpetually tortured artist. That's why I changed my name. I can't be her in public. She would be a mess!" she laughed.

Although she wants her fans to know nothing came easy for her, Gaga doesn't want any sympathy. She doesn't understands celebrities who moan about being role models or being recognised and insists "pressure" isn't something that ever effects her.

"What are you talking about pressure? I'm great under pressure. I'm warrior. I'm Rocky, round 12," she said.
