GaGa Driven By Memory Of Late Aunt

| Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa

Lady GaGa Inspired

We're sure that Lady GaGa has a long list of inspirations and motivations that drive her, but recently she spoke about one that seems much heavier than the others.

That catalyst is her late aunt, Joanne Germanotta, who died of lupus at age 19, and how she was taught not to live for just herself.


“I really believe I have two hearts. I think I actually carry two souls in my body, and that I’m living out the rest of her life and her goodness — she died a virgin, she died never having experienced all these things that we all get to love and experience in our lives. I think that I work in her image. I work in this life as part pop singer and part humanitarian, and to do great things for people because she was a good person and I don’t think she had enough time to do enough good.”

We can def see where this would spark someone's actions. It's tragic what happened to her aunt, but we're glad that something so good could come out of it!

The source continues:

"Her aunt’s deftness with poetry and art, in fact, inspired Gaga to go after her dream of being a singer at age 19, especially since Gaga has been diagnosed with a borderline autoimmune disorder. Like her late aunt, Gaga is an artist, and she uses herself as an art project in what she wears — often using her attire to make a statement on a cause about which she’s passionate (such as the infamous meat dress, which she intended to be a statement on human rights)."

We hope this helps people out there understand a little about why GaGa does some of the things she does, and that not everything is always about shock-value!

Keep up all the beautiful things you do, bb! The world appreciates it!

    No matter what, people are going to hate. Even after they read this because they think they know her and what her intentions are. Most of the people that hate her have probably never even seen an interview or hear her speak out about stuff that is wrong. But they'll always be that way until they grow up. Lady Gaga is a awesome human being. We are all human no body is better than anybody else.

    It seems now that her outrageous egg outfit has backlashed she should bring this up. Bravaaaa.

    What an amazing story, Perez!! Keep up the good work!!!

    Re: Anthony West – You are so right, so why does your idol CaCa think she's better than everyone else? She's driven by famewhoring, period.

    Oh please.. now she is trying to spin her image into being inspired by her aunt? She needs to step back a little and give people a break. Over exposure is not always a good thing.. if she has not noticed people are getting tired of her and the freakish behavior.. The meat dress was a statement on human rights? the horns? The stupid egg.. the tide is turning and no one is buying it anymore.

  7. 7

    Damage control.

  8. 8

    Yea like how she does drugs because they make her creative and how shes on a alcohol diet?
    Yea that's not for shock-value…

    Amazing story!!

    Everything else was fine until she said "she died a virgin". I don't think that line was necessary.
    Loosing someone can be hard, one of my best friends has lupus and I worry about her everyday, however I feel like Lady Gaga is using what she has to over-publicize herself.

    It's interesting how particular (and sometimes sad) things affect and shape kids while growing up, and serve to act as inner motivation and fuel for them later. Everyone has their stories of random things that kicked their butts and shaped who they become.

    Besides being UGLY she's also full of SHIT.

  13. 13

    she always talks like she is a savior or something. Fucking A, don't talk to us about being a humanitarian until you can back it up with the work that goes behind such a title. There's a definite christ complex going on here.

  14. 14

    and another newspaper already uncovered that GAGa stole her persona from a young girl she knew in her teens who committed suicide at 18. There's pictures of her before she died, and Gaga totally copied her because back at the same time as the pictures, Gaga was boring with brown hair and no style.

  15. 15

    Next she will tell us she was raped by her father…

  16. 16

    everyone i knew loved the egg, IT WAS AWESOME!!! p.s. LOVE THAT HAT!!

    Re: Anthony West – There's a good amount of people who used to like her and don't anymore. I used to love her but then she started being a hot mess and her fans went bat shit crazy. Your comments a flop. Sorry ;)

    Re: pie107 – I think she stole that hat idea from Yosemite Sam..

  20. 20

    Shes one of the few if you stripped it away she still has talent. She's gimmicky but she actually doesn't need the gimmicks. I enjoy her though. She should not care what anyone else thinks anyways.

  21. 21

    My thought is that acting normally is not over-rated.

  22. 22

    If you hear the song by her friend Lina Morgana "My angel" its totally obvious that Gaga copied to do Paparazzi!… its the same melody. Gaga is a big fraud. She has no shame???.And her stupid costumes are all made by someone else, she doesnt even create them.

  23. 23

    Btw, I remember when she first came out and the first interviews she did, she was hella passed out on something and she touched one of her dancers (like Madonna used to do with her dancers) and said that she created blabla song while she was under heavy drugs and it was a huge inspiration…………….

    now is her aunt the inspiration? WTF.

  24. 24

    You can put lip stick on a pig its still a pig!!! Its all for shock value!!!

  25. 25

    Well, Madonna has her mother…

    Yes, I went there.

    This is the same aunt she claimed "saved her from a drug overdose" a while back. I wonder if it's also her aunt's spirit that tells her to go off in magazine interviews that she still does cocaine and ecstacy and smokes a lot of pot. When she first came out she said she used to be addicted to cocaine. Now she says she still does it. She was either never addicted, or still is, and in either instance the story about her aunts spirit being what made her overcome her addiction is bullshit just like when she wanted her fans to think she had lupus herself. Not cool.

  27. 27

    Gaga if you read this: Please stop drinking. It's not good for you. My 10 yr old begs you to stop too.

  28. 28

    Oh Jesus trying to gain more sympathy to distract from your flopping new single? Oh and don't forget that the tranny lied about getting Madonna's blessing.

  29. 29

    It's BS

  30. 30

    iam soo tired of tthis bitch.. SHe died a virgin? how the hell does she know. why would anyone say that. Was her aunt on her deathbed yelling about how she was dying a virgin or what? and who in a family would pass on that information oh your aunt that died 10 yrs ago was a virgin you really should know that. I mean gimme a break lady.. Your tired… n we a so very tired of you..

  31. 31

    My uncle died when he was 30 of a brain tumor before I was born…I TOTALLY carry his soul…yeah right

  32. 32

    Her Aunt inspires her to make bad music and walk around mostly naked or dressed like an idiot. I'm sure she's just thrilled to be the inspiration for total crap.

  33. 33

    Perez, you should stop blogging and start a Gaga fansite.. all your unnecessary Gaga posts are getting annoying

  34. 34

    That really touches me. I've stuggled with Lupus since I was 6, and pretty much lived in the hospital. I never got to "live". All my friends went to parties and got the whole school experience, I didn't even make it to prom!
    And to see someone who herself has an autoimmune issues , but isn't letting that stop her from living her life and dream! I wish I had her courage and I wish I had her as a role model when I was young. Maybe I would have pushed my self more, then maybe I wouldn't have missed out on so much beauty.

    Ugh! Can this asshole shuta fuck up already!?
