Lady Gaga says a typical day is spent working nonstop. "I wake up in the morning and I get on my computer and I have lists of references and reference boards with all of my materials on them, and I basically call the House of Gaga all day and argue with them about what I want to do while they tell me, 'You can't do that,'" she says. "And I say, 'Yes, I can bleed to death on domestic television if want to!' So, for me, it's all about being provocative, not just getting people's attention. It's about really saying something that affects people in a real way and a positive way."
One the biggest statements she tries to make is about fame and the media. "All the things I do in terms of fame and the fame monster is meant to make it a bit easier to swallow this kind of horrific media world that we live in," she says.
