Lady Gaga may appear to be one of those “larger than life’ celebrities but the truth is, she is so down-to-earth and so real that I could have talked to her for hours about her passion for music, creativity and old school influences like Lucile Ball and Elizabeth Taylor!
I truly do get pretty excited when I interview an artist for the first time – which was the case with Stefani Germanotta yesterday at the Hazelton Hotel in Toronto – but at the same time I get a little wary because I begin to think to myself, “well, what if this person isn’t what I envision at all’…
Gaga walked into the room and greeted me with a smile and a “hello.”; She is a vision of uber-fashion who is constantly looking different every time you see her. What I thought was very cool about her (aside from her being so genuine) was the fact she changed wardrobe for every media outlet interview she did – she decided on going with the one arm in the over-sized blazer and one arm out, over the very simple black bra look.
With Gaga it most definitely is very visual and eye-catching, but beneath that surface there’s a deep dedication and commitment to her craft.
I asked her about what she’d be doing if she found no success at all in music and she replied – “I’d still be making music”;…which just goes to show you she is seriously in this for the long haul.
She really LOVES what she does and we LOVE her for doing it!
