Lady Gaga Speaks on Hermaphrodite Rumors, Her Androgynous Appeal, Sex with Women on 20/20

by at . Comments

With her outrageous getups, sexually-charged songs and blood-soaked performances, Lady Gaga has become a bona fide star at just 23 years of age.

Much has been written about her, but in an interview with Barbara Walters on 20/20 Friday, Gaga said there are some big misconceptions out there.

That she has a penis is one of those misconceptions, but more on that in a moment. What she hates most, she says, is hearing that she is artificial.

"The truth is that every bit of me is devoted to love and art," she said. "I aspire to try to be a teacher to my fans... to liberate them of their fears."

Just Gaga Over Gaga

Asked about lyrics that seem to imply bisexuality, Gaga confirmed that she's had sexual relationships with women, though she's only been in love with men.

Gulp. Turning her attention to the ongoing Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors, the singer put them to rest (sort of) once and for all. This was the exchange:

Barbara Walters: You've heard the rumors going around ... the rumor that you are both a man and a woman?
Lady Gaga: [pause] I'm familiar with it.
Barbara Walters: Is it true?
Lady Gaga: No.

Well, there you have it. Although, asked if she is upset by such rumors, Gaga said her androgynous appeal is a big reason for her success, and doesn't exactly go out of her way to limit that. So believe whatever you want about her!

Gaga is talented, pretty, fierce, and definitely not a guy. YAY that she is pro-gay-rights. So am I, and I am a straight woman.

I usually dont like the fake pop sort of wanna be's that make it that are doing shit that i did when i was 16 (now 32) but Lady Gaga is interesting at least. Her music is catchy.I dont have too much 2 say about her. I definetly dont think she's the shiniest tool in the box.

She did not have a sex change! I saw pictures of her from high school, she was very cute and I think she's beautiful. People need to stop being jerks...some of you need to grow up and become decent human beings. You're what's wrong with this world...

Lady Gaga, What a woman. She is a powerful woman to put up with all that she has too from some people. man, woman, halfway in between ... what does it matter? and the fact that she is for gay rights prooves nothing besides that fact that she has compassion for people. And yet, some of you cruel, cold-hearted people have the gall to try and tear this woman down, when she does nothing but try a build people up, and help people out. I love how she lets all ur rumors just roll off her shoulders, and don't give you arse holes the satisfaction of breaking her. There are more for her than against her, for the simple fact that, she's for us, I'm sure if she could, and we needed her help, she'd do it, just like I'd do if someone who needed me. Give up the resentment, start feelin happy for the girl.
