Lady Gaga doesn't talk all that much about her relationship with her boyfriend, actor Taylor Kinney , but their relationship is pretty serious. The two have been spotted packing on the PDA in cities ranging from London to Chicago to New York , and in a new cover story for Canada's Fashion magazine, Gaga confirms: it's true love.
“It has been hard for me to find it but I have found love," she tells the magazine for its February issue. "When you meet someone that’s not intimidated by the amazing people that are around you [or] by the love that you receive -- that’s love."
In the past, Gaga says, getting boyfriends to accept her career was a problem. "Men weren’t always happy for me. It was very challenging to watch a woman be so successful," she tells the magazine.
Gaga also talks about her headline-grabbing outfits, which she insists are simply part of who she is. "I’ve always cared about my costumes and my clothes. When I leave my apartment I like to look pretty for my fans but not [in a] hot sexy girl [way]—I don’t care about that, I just want to make you feel something with what I wear. I want you to feel happy and enjoy the theater of my life the way that I do," she explains.
"This is who I am and its never been an act and its never been marketing. This is me all the way to my core and fashion is a big part of my life," she adds.
Gaga says that her desire to be a performer is also something that is deeply ingrained in her. "There’s this implication that if I wasn’t so successful, I would have to stop. But I never would have stopped," she insists. "I would be in some bar, being Lady Gaga.”
