Despite her stardom, Lady Gaga says she doesn't have many famous friends. "I don't really have a tremendous connection to the celebrity world," she says. "My friendships are really with my fans, and that's how I really communicate. My vision is through them and through music."
So what's the message Lady Gaga wants to send to her fan base? "I want them to free themselves, and I want them to be proud of who they are," she says. "I want them to celebrate all the things they don't like about themselves the way that I did, and to be truly happy from the inside."
