E! News caught up with the "Born This Way" singer—clad in a "condom-inspired latex pantsuit," natch—to dish about the M.A.C Viva Glam campaign, the controversial egg and her new hit single.
Take it away, Gaga....
• About her deal with M.A.C: "They give 100 percent of money raised from this lipstick or the lip gloss—it all goes to M.A.C AIDS fund. Last year we raised $34 million for AIDS and this year I want to raise $50 [million]."
• So what exactly is she wearing today? "I'm in a condom-inspired latex pantsuit! I want to spread the awareness...I'm the bringer of the message."
• OK, explain that egg? "I wanted to have a rebirth and I think the universe needs to have a rebirth."
• And what about her shout-out to Whitney Houston or supposed beef with Madonna? "I don't like to reveal anything about my personal relationships with artists because it is so sacred to me, but I will say that one of the most important things I experienced as a young woman was being empowered by all of these strong women who where running the music industry.
"And I hope that I can live up to that kind of woman. I hope to be remembered as someone who made people feel strong and good about themselves and made them want to make a difference in not just their life but other people's."
You go, girl.
