Lady Gaga is “quite normal and traditional” when it comes to family.

At least according to Lady Gaga, a star known for her controversial songs, eccentric outfits and outrageous antics. In life, though, she feels she’s normal.

Speaking on MTV show Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside, she said: “I’m really quite traditional, actually, contrary to what some people might think about me.”

“I’m quite traditional in the family sense. I’ve always been that way. My dad was just trying to breathe normally. He’s still trying to breathe normally.”

Asked if she plans to have a family one day, she said: “At some point, yeah, I’ll have a family and babies and all those things, but not right now.”

“Not for a while. Right now I have lots of fans. I’m giving birth to lots of little monsters, so I need to keep down the stretch marks.”

The 25-year-old singer was inspired to become one by her parents, Joseph and Cynthia Germanotta, who encouraged her to pursue music.

She said: “My parents got me Stevie Wonder’s ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’ and The Beatles when I was younger. Good choices, mom and dad.”

“Don’t spoon-feed me The Beatles and Stevie Wonder and Bruce Springsteen and Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin and Elton John and expect for me not to turn out this way.”

We’d say she turned out rather well. Lady Gaga was named as the world’s most powerful celebrity by Forbes magazine earlier this week.
