Check out these tidbits of enlightenment from July cover girl Lady Gaga on everything from love and life to The Fame.

Our July cover girl Lady Gaga is clearly not afraid to be herself, and with that colorful, out-of-this-world personality come some equally colorful (and incredibly insightful) opinions. Lady Gaga's got something to say about everything, from love to life, sex, and fame. Check out some of her quotable quotes!


1. On sex and self-esteem: "It's okay to be whomever it is that you want to be. You don't have to have sex to feel good about yourself, and if you're not ready, don't do it. It's not really cool anymore to have sex all the time. It's cooler to be strong and independent." —People

2. On relationships: "Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore." —Cosmopolitan

3. On other people: "They can't scare me, if I scare them first." —Gaga's Twitter

4. On being Lady Gaga: "When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 24-year-old girl. Then I say, 'Bitch, you're Lady Gaga, you get up and walk the walk today.'" —Rolling Stone

5. On art: "When you make music or write or create, it's really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever idea it is you're writing about at the time." —Blender

6. On love: "Love is like a brick. You can build a house, or you can sink a dead body." —Gaga's Twitter

7. On being a superstar: "I believe that everyone can do what I'm doing. Everyone can access the parts of themselves that are great. I'm just a girl from New York City who decided to do this, after all. Rule the world! What's life worth living if you don't rule it?" —NY Magazine

8. On being a role model: "When you're in the public eye, you're a role model whether you want to be or not. And I want to be. I'm not one of those self-obsessed artists who don't care about their fans. It's not just about the music. I look out into the O2 and there are 18,000 screaming young people and I have a responsibility to them--and you're an idiot if you don't know that." —The Daily Mail

9. On her goals: "Now, I'm just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time." —Lady Gaga's official bio

10. On loving yourself: "I don't want you to go home tonight and say, 'I love Lady Gaga!' I want you to go home, look in a mirror, and say, 'I love myself!'" —Lady Gaga at a concert in Ottawa, November 2009
