Lady GaGa Describes Her 9/11 Experiences

| Filed under: Sad SadLady GaGa

GaGa Remembers 9/11

So many people had different experiences stemming from the same tragic event, and each story is just as powerful as the next.

Lady GaGa was in high school when the attacks happened 10 years ago, and here's what she remembers:

"I mean, there's so many stories that people don't know. I watched the towers fall from the roof of my school, holding all my best friends. I don't know … just, my affinity and my love and the relationship I have with New York City — it's like the husband I never married."

GaGa has always felt a powerful connection to her hometown, and it's no wonder. It shows up everywhere in her work:

"Well, this is how I get home; my leather jacket's like my Dorothy slippers. … That's why I changed when we sat down. You said, 'I want to ask you about New York,' and I said, 'You'd better get my leather.' I wrote so many songs on this new album [Born This Way] about New York City. I mean, every song on all my albums has some relationship to New York City, but one in particular 'Marry the Night,' that record is about my husband, New York."

We don't doubt your love for your city. And we all remember where we were that day, even if we weren't all on a rooftop in the city itself.

We love NYC so much. We remember those lost, and have infinite respect for those who could carry on to keep it just as amazing today for those who gave their lives that day.

    did she write this stuff while in a drug induced coma?? her HUSBAND is NY?!?!? LOL… I will never understand what happened to her… really sad….

  2. 2

    If I want to hear a song about someone's relationship with a city, I will listen to Under the Bridge by the Chili Peppers.

  3. yeez says – reply to this


    I thought she didn't have any friends because she was so "misunderstood."

  4. 4

    I think I understand now.
    They tried to kill her before the release of her shit.

  5. 5

    Of course it's all about her! Her NY, please…

  6. 6

    Lmfao!! This twat flop has NO shame. NONE!! She really is your wifey!! Two fuckin' peas in a pod!! Grotesque!!

  7. 7

    I'm really sick of her making everything about herself. She doesn't mention the lives that were lost, the tragedy that it was for our country. I used to like Gaga but she's become way too over the top annoying.

  8. 8

    this crack whore always makes everything about her..my husband….and of course he gotta mention her crappy album…some songs in the album where about new york…

  9. 9

    Why couldn't she have been on the 103rd floor?

  10. 10

    only lady gaga would make the 9/11 tragedy about herself, where is the mention of the victims, the fdny or nypd?

  11. 11

    Re: yeez – lmao….

  12. 12

    Surprise, surprise, just like you she has to make today all about her. You two sicken me.

  13. 13

    I thought she was bullied in school. was a loner. her double talk sure is confusing.

  14. 14

    Between this skank and mario, I am embarrassed. They are both NO talent hacks who try to make everything about them. They both SUCK

  15. 15

    Re: yeez – She doesn't have friends not because she is misunderstood, the problem is too many people realize she is a Madonna ripoff with no clue about reality.

  16. 16

    POPSCIDICTATOR shut up this is serious! New york loves Gaga is your country and she dedicated "Marry the Night"

  17. 17

    The planes were holograms,just as fake as her…it's all a grand illusion.

  18. 18

    Boo hoo…sad faced girl…I'm surprised she didn't show up at ground zero today in a meat dress or drenched in blood…because she was BORN THAT WAY. God Bless the victims and families of the 9/11 tragedy.

  19. 19

    Re: comparini – lol! please learn to use the 'reply to this” feature, little turd.

  20. 20

    You know when someone says something and you immediately think, "Yes! That's exactly it!" Well I don't think anyone could have explained it better about how I feel about my hometown. Gaga hit the nail on the head about New York for me when she says, "just, my affinity and my love and the relationship I have with New York City — it's like the husband I never married." That is EXACTLY how I feel about New York. I love my New York!

  21. 21

    She just sounds like an empty headed nit-wit!

  22. 22

    I call bull on this story. There is no way a school would let the kids go up on the roof when there is a terrorist attack going on…they would have been evacuated and sent home just like every other school. Can't wait for other's that went to the school with her to call her out on this!

  23. 23


  24. 24

    Re: sensfan999 – Good point.

  25. 25

    Everything just has to be about her!!

  26. 26

    Re: mistique – Your an idiot!!

  27. 27

    heres a powerful story..young beautiful pilot out of andrews air force base was the 1st to be called up along with sassy a male pilot to go take down flight 93.they had no missiles on board ,there was no time to load them,she was to crash into the tail of the plane.he was to crash into cockpit of the jet,they were kamkasi pilots..however the brave men on flight 93 beat the pilots and took the plain down themselves..this is a story that should be told….god bless america!{ heather penny the female pilot nic name is lucky..] true story..also duffy pilot out of otis a.f.b. was sent up to shoot down flight 911.[he was also a united pilot at the time] he happenned to be doing his national guard duty that day, and was going to shoot down his own co-workers..unbelievable..

  28. 28

    Re: sensfan999 – You're absolutely right.
    Wasn't this interview posted like 3 months ago? unless i'm completely insane i've definitely heard these exact same words from her already, unless she's just repeating herself and mixing up her scripts.

  29. 29

    She's referring to a CITY as her Husband??? She is a strange one…

  30. 30

    Re: jay_ay_dee_e – - its called a metaphor, idiot.

    Re: eyeroll1 – - who said this was the entire interview? just because perez didn't include that part in the post, doesn't mean she didn't say it! learn to think, please.

  31. 31

    Obviously most of the people here hasnt gone past grade school…ITS "PERSONIFICATION" and if you dont understand what this is you GOOGLE IT!

    Even on this sad day, you guys still spew HATRED…no wonder this world in in shambles…all because of PEOPLE LIKE YOU!

  32. 32

    lesson of the day… say no to drugs . Out of all the people in the world its gotta be what IT says about 9-11??? gawd….

  33. 33

    Re: kirknyc24 – Yea you're right because of people pointing out flaws and lies of someone else, we're the reason there are terrorist and religious extremists. Awesome! we're sorry.

  34. ed69 says – reply to this


    i wonder what relationship does "judas" as with New york city.. if she says all her songs are related to NYC….

  35. 35

    Re: sensfan999 – Exactly. She's such a liar/fraud. No one at Sacred Heart allowed that!! Everything this mutton hog says is a lie. She should be ashamed. :-(

  36. 36

    Re: ed69 – Hey, she said that Edge of Glory was about her grandfather - but the lyrics are about a one night stand. Go figure. When the topic of 9/11 comes up she finds a way to plug her album, just like when the subject of family came up she used that to plug a song as well.

  37. 37

    Re: justtospeaktruth – She can't stop lying. What a fraud/fake. It's shameful that she would use 9/11 to get attention. It's grotesque!! :-(

  38. 38

    She is becoming a little annoying lately. I wish she would tone down the drama for a second.

  39. 39

    why couldn't the honorable terrorist hit lady gaga school instead?

  40. 40

    Ten years ago today I had a dream Michael Jackson died. I woke up and turned on "The Today Show" to see the towers burning. Never once did I think of terrorism. My mind doesn't work that way. When Michael really did die 8 years later, I thought of 9/11.

  41. @v@ says – reply to this


    Well, she IS from New York, so as a New Yorker she was probably asked the 'where were you when' question and this would be the answer.

  42. 42

    How dare she make this about a plug for her flop album. This is so undeniably narcissistic and self-centered. She is so sickening!

  43. 43

    too bad she wasn't in tower 1, top floor. oh well, her music is torture enough. actually, perez sucking her asshole is torture enough!

  44. 44

    why is everyone hating? she is sharing her story about that day like im sure thousands including me have.

  45. 45

    I am ashamed to be apart of the human race, after reading some of these comments…

  46. 46

    Re: ashywashy – She has used the question, "Where were you?", to plug her album. That's why everyone is hating.

  47. 47

    Re: ashywashy – too stupid.

  48. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: rosebud99 – Agreed on that. :roll.

  49. 49

    What the fuck?
    After she speaks about such a serious tragedy, all everybody can do is say shit about her.
    People died? I dont understand how this is alright.

  50. 50

    While I understand that people are are all sharing their stories of where they were 10 years ago, she has still somehow made this about her. No one was being allowed to stand on the roof of a school to watch the drama unfold when there was debris everywhere, dust covering everything, and people scared everywhere. It's one thing to share your experiences, but it's another to outright lie about it. She is trying to keep the attention on her and that's just it.

  51. 51

    Ok, so this is a lie. i know her school and the distance from her school (which is an extremely rich catholic girls school on the upper east side) cannot see the twin towers from such, i went to a similar school not to far away. It would be utterly impossible for her to see the towers from the roof of the school, from where she was at. nice try ga-ga

    GO YOU GOOD THING SAMMY STOSUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So sick of her - what nerve she has to publicity stunt a national tragady.

  58. bbcb says – reply to this



  59. 59

    Re: sensfan999 – Right you are! I found it on the internet: Convent of the Sacred Heart closed early on 9/11. In the midst of confusion and lack of information, students were sent home early. If the school was unable to reach parents, students were sent to safe places. All well coordinated and orchestrated. Gaga is sick to make up a story like this.

  60. bbcb says – reply to this


    Re: poodlewithamohawk – Would you expect anything else from this attention seeking sad person?.

  61. bbcb says – reply to this


    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Should't you be Focusing on those BIG BLACK DICKS that you are always going on about? You are seriously a fucking joke.

  63. china says – reply to this


    what shows up in her so-called work is that she`s a brainless twat without honesty, decency and style and this bullshit shows it. someone please tell the ugly tranny that 9/11 wasn`t about her and her pointless album flop this way.

  64. china says – reply to this


    Re: comparini – better you shut up! if the ugly bich dedicates a few of her millions to the survivers or families of the victims, that would be a point - but a brainless song no one wants to hear?… not so much…tranny caca is a shame for new york.

  65. 65

    WTF? her husband is NY?

  66. 66

    Re: electromouth – Then surely Perez would have quoted her on saying that and marvelled at what a lovely woman she is. I've not seen the whole interview so I will only comment on what has been presented here. Learning to think does not include presuming Lady Gaga has said something without any knowledge of her having said it.

  67. 67

    Re: suzyelizabethRe: 1sexlin – Yes!! No one was on the roof at Sacred Heart that day!! She's a fuckin' liar / fraud. Even the Jackson Hole at 96th was evacuated / closed that day. Bitch can't stop lying. Gonna go download 'You and I'!! Lmfao!!

  68. 68

    I've never seen such unwarranted hatred and fear coming from these people. Gaga is simply expressing her remembrances of the event as a 15-year-old girl. And she's expressing her love for her hometown–NYC. She's not "making everything about her," nor is she crazy. If these people (who are writing) are not fans of her work, so be it. But to demonize her like this is plain pathological–sick and crazy and very sad. Get a grip, folks.

  69. 69

    Re: blanchefan – lmfao!! you need help, bitch.

  70. 70

    I don't really know what to think about her anymore. But she seems so self-absorbed.

  71. 71

    Re: blanchefan – No honey you need to get a grip!!

  72. 72

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Don't we all, dear. Remember, what we give out, we get back; it's a universal law. Try replacing your anger and fear with some compassion–not only for others, but for yourself. And name-calling is so very childish–not worthy of you.

  73. 73

    This is the most drunken nonsensicle statement i have read about someones reactions to 9/11 to date. They watched the towers fall from the roof of her school? call me a skeptic, but I highly doubt it. I mean, really what kind of unsafe school would permit high school students to go up to a room during a terrorist attack? I was in the car on the way to school for my "double zero" period class that started at 7am, (on the west coast) and from the moment we got in class we were on instant lock down. I find it hard to believe that a school so close to the event would allow for this, and if so- someone at that school should be slapped. Ugh this is so stupid and so annoying, she sounds like sucha twit, I don't even know what else to say.. but this seems like another lady gaga contrived story.

  74. 74

    Wait… and she said so many times that in high school she was a loner, and an outcast and had no friends.. and now she had to hold all her friends while watching this? Shit she's told so many lies, it's clear she can't even keep them straight anymore.

  75. 75

    Re: blanchefan – did you have a good cry yet today?? lolZ!!

  76. 76

    this is like some sex and the city shit !

  77. 77

    actually everyone here's saying she used 911 to plug her album. that quote was taken from a different interview by mtv months ago.

  78. 78

    pathetic of human bieng such a waste of oxygen why is she still relevant like i mean wtfff is people kissing like in her and stuff sick of it.

  79. 79

    are you idiots? these are QUOTES TAKEN from a CONTEXT. an INTERVIEW in a real TIME AND PLACE where people ask her questions, many of which are personal ones because that's what they are PAYING for. this is what perez chose to repeat. she has way more talent in her voice than almost any top 40 artist could hope to convey. haters keep hatin.

  80. 80

    @nocheapones This isnt the whole interview u know… find out everything she says before making accusations that she didnt mention this or that

  81. 81

    Re: eyeroll1 – did you ever think the reporter asked "where were you when 9/11 happened?"

  82. 82

    Re: yeez – she never said that. she said she had a close group of friends, but like every high schooler, there were the bitches who gave her trouble for being too artsy. for wearing her wig from the play to school, for caring to much about art. girls are bitches. it happens.

  83. 83

    You can't see that much of the twin towers from sacred heart. the building isn't that tall and well over over 100 blocks away, with plenty of skyscrapers to block the view (think about midtown east and the rest of the east side going down). At most they saw the tops go down. Why's she all acting like she witnessed shit? Her "best friends" then are probably people she'd be ashamed to face today. Normies who get up one ay and decide to be weird always stop talking to the people who knew them before.

  84. 84

    Shut up already, are you all really that daft? You don't think she was asked where SHE was during the attacks and how SHE experienced the whole ordeal? You never get asked 'where were you when this and that happened'?
    Seriously, some people try to whack this girl every change they get. Talk about being desperate…

  85. 85

    Oh and at the same time accusing Perez of being a bully hahaha! Yeah, that adds up!
