The April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, upon which she graces the cover, features music superstar Lady Gaga recounting an old boyfriend who doubted her.
One she's not opposed to rubbing her success in the face of now.
"I had a boyfriend who told me I'd never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I'd fail," the singer recounts.
Gaga adds, "I said to him, 'Someday, when we're not together, you won't be able to order a cup of coffee at the f**king deli without hearing or seeing me.'"
Some might call that quote arrogant, but it's hard to blame her for relishing that just a bit, given how hard she worked to succeed, and then stay at the top.
Someone dared to doubt this.
She also says she "ate sh*t for so long" trying to make it in music and "I've always been delusionally ambitious to the point where people don't understand me."
Hopefully Matthew Williams, her current beau, is not one of those people. He's worked with her for so long, we imagine they click professionally and personally.
Also notable is the conventional lingerie she wears on the Cosmo cover.
After all, we're talking about a girl with wacky, avant garde style, who wears hair phones, masks, bulges in her pants and ... whatever that is in the pic above.
Lady Gaga can certainly pull of a variety of bizarre and regular style choices. We expect her to show similarly versatility and longevity in the world of music, too.
