Let’s have a show of hands: who here is surprised that Lady Gaga likes to be on top?
Little monsters are waiting with baited breath to hear Gaga’s upcoming album ARTPOP, which promises to deviate in several ways from the standard music business model of releasing an album. In a recent interview with the UK’s Stylist, she revealed some tantalizing details about a rather racy song on the album.
The interview was all about fashion and makeup, and how Gaga expresses herself through her looks. When asked about the connection between makeup and feminism, she ended up using her own music to make a point:
“You know what’s so funny is, I actually think there’s a new feminism that is completely different and I don’t think either is better or worse. Any kind of feminist has valid views for herself about what it means to be a feminist, but, as a new-age feminist, I would say I quite like the transference of strength I feel by submitting to a man – being under him. I actually wrote a song about it on my album, it’s called 'GUY' and it stands for ‘Go Under You.’”

(Stylist actually got the title of the song wrong. Gaga clarified that it is “Guy Under You.”)
She continued: “So wearing makeup, smelling delicious and having suckable, kissable, edible things between your limbs is something I find strengthening because I know that when I pick the right guy, I can let him have it.” Steamy!
And speaking of edible things, Gaga also opened up about the mean-spirited coverage of her recent weight gain:
"I was acutely aware of some photos on the internet – my mum called me and was like, 'Did you gain weight?' – everybody was telling me about it, and I didn't really care. But when I heard it was on the news, where they talk about wars, the economy crashing and the election – I just thought, ‘This is f*cking ridiculous.’ I mean, what kind of example is that to a young girl sitting at home?"

She went on: "I thought, well I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds. Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of woman. I need to be a confident woman and just say politically active things when I can that are helpful to young people."
And one final tidbit also stuck out ― Gaga, nervous about her appearance? Apparently in some situations! "I am throwing my best friend an engagement party this weekend, and I’m going to be seeing all these girls from high school, and I would be totally lying to you if I didn’t say I was worried about how I’m going to look! I was saying earlier, 'I have to look fabulous, I have to look absolutely amazing, some of them were horrible to me!'"
Now let's hope "GUY" and ARTPOP are as "suckable, kissable, edible" as Gaga says her body is.
