Personal Quotes by Lady Gaga
I’m half living my life between reality and fantasy at all times.- Lady Gaga
Vanity can create a very cruel space for you if you don’t know how to manage it.- Lady Gaga
What I’ve discovered is that in art, as in music, there’s a lot of truth-and then there’s a lie. The artist is essentially creating his work to make this lie a truth, but he slides it in amongst all the others. The tiny little lie is the moment I live for, my moment. It’s the moment that the audience falls in love.- Lady Gaga
I live halfway between reality and theater at all times. And I was born this way.- Lady Gaga
Born this Way’ is about being yourself, and loving who you are and being proud.- Lady Gaga
