Lady Gaga went on Ellen last week and basically told us everything we already knew: Her fans are misfit freaks who get beat with their clarinets at the bus stop. People reports:
“I didn’t fit in in high school and I felt like a freak,” she tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview to air Friday. “So I like to create this atmosphere for my fans where they feel like they have a freak in me to hang out with and they don’t feel alone.” “The whole point of what I do – The Monster Ball, the music, the performance aspect of it – I want to create a space for my fans where they can feel free and they can celebrate,” the singer, 23, says. “This is really who I am, and it took a long time to be okay with that,” she says. “Maybe in high school you, Ellen, you feel discriminated against. Like you don’t fit in and you want to be like everyone else, but not really, and in the inside you want to be like Boy George – well, I did anyway. So I want my fans to know that it’s okay. Sometimes in life you don’t always feel like a winner, but that doesn’t mean you’re not a winner (EDITOR’S NOTE: Yes it does), you want to be like yourself. I want my fans to know it’s okay.”
Whatever. It’s almost Thanksgiving and I’m trying to get the hell out of here, but I liked her better the first time when she was Cher.
