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.
Trust is like a mirror, you can fix it if it's broken, but you can still see the crack in that mother fucker's reflection.
Don't you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can't be exactly who you are.
Well, that's your opinion, isn't it? And I'm not about to waste my time trying to change it.
You have to be unique, and different, and shine in your own way.
Love is like a brick. You can build a house, or you can sink a dead body.
Do not allow people to dim your shine because they are blinded. Tell them to put on some sunglasses, cuz we were born this way bitch!
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.
They can't scare me, if I scare them first.
Do you know the feeling, when your heart is so hurt, that you could feel the blood dripping?
I want the deepest, darkest, sickest parts of you that you are afraid to share with anyone because I love you that much.
If you dont have any shadows you're not in the light
And now, I'm just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.
I used to walk down the street like I was a fucking star... I want people to walk around delusional about how great they can be - and then to fight so hard for it every day that the lie becomes the truth.
I remember watching the mascara tears flood the ivories and I thought, "It's OK to be sad." I've been trained to love my darkness.
I'm a free bitch baby
I'm obsessively opposed to the typical.
People will always talk, so lets give them sumthin to talk about
Cause it's a hard life, with love in the world. and i'm a hard girl, loving me is like chewing on pearls.
All that ever holds somebody back, I think, is fear. For a minute I had fear. [Then] I went into the [dressing] room and shot my fear in the face...
I've always been famous, it's just no one knew it yet.
Well my music was different in high school; I was singing about love—you know, things I don't care about anymore.
I want women -- and men -- to feel empowered by a deeper and more psychotic part of themselves. The part they're always trying desperately to hide. I want that to become something that they cherish.
As artists, we are eternally heartbroken.
Once you kill a cow, you gotta make a burger
I'm telling you a lie in a vicious effort that you will repeat my lie over and over until it becomes true
Sometimes in life you don't always feel like a winner, but that doesn't mean you're not a winner, you want to be like yourself. I want my fans to know it's okay.
When I wake up in the morning, I feel like any other insecure 24-year-old girl. Then I say,'Bitch, you're Lady Gaga, you get up and walk the walk today.
You're love is nothing I can't fight. Can't sleep with a man who dims my shine.
Being gay is like glitter, it never goes away.
Live your eyeliner, breathe your lipstick, and kill for each other -Lady Gaga via twitter
I want you to walk out of here tonight not loving me more, but loving yourselves more.
I just I felt like a freak, I guess what I'm trying to say is I want to liberate them, I want to free them of their fears and make them feel that they can create their own space in the world
I am focused on the work. I am constantly creating. I am a busy girl. I live and breathe my work. I love what I do. I believe in the message. There's no stopping. I didn't create the fame, the fame created me.
Sexuality is half poison and half liberation. What’s the line? I don’t have a line.
I'm a little bit naked, but that's okay.
For being different, it’s easy. But to be unique, it’s a complicated thing.
I don't want the 5 dollars in your pocket, I want your soul
Don't be a drag. Just be a queen.
At the end of the day, you won't be happy unil you love yourself.
To everyone who says this is wrong to feel like this say, 'I was born this way baby.
Ignore all hatred and criticism. Live for what you create, and die protecting it.
My friends joke that I’m dead until I get onstage. I’m dead right now as you’re speaking to me.
It doesn't matter who you are, or where you come from, or how much money you've got in your pocket. You have your own destiny and your own life ahead of you.
This is who the fuck I am.
So basically I did this whole show carrying 100lbs, looking out of one eye, dancing – and then my tits explode at the end. It's not as easy as it looks!
Peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart
You will never find what you are looking for in love, if you don't love yourself.
I'd wear any of my private attire for the world to see. But I would rather have an open flesh wound than ever wear a band aid in public.
For all my love little monsters i am your mom you are my child in my hand i protect you like my eyes but dont worry ill cacth you if you fall.
I would rather die than have my fans see me without a pair of heels on. And that's show business.
Prejudice is a disease. And when they come for you, or refuse your worth, I will be ready for their stones. I belong to you.
So many will try to destroy me. So many, over and over, coming in periods of greatness. But in this period, I cannot be broken: GAGAKLEIN.
That's Right Hunny-B
Just remember: i love you, and love yourselves. 'cause, little monsters, you were born that way baby.
We are not just Art for Michelangelo to carve, he can't rewrite the agro of my furied heart- Lady Gaga 10/22/10
It's hard knowing who to trust with your personal life. When you cry in your room at night, you don't always know who to call.
Amy [Winehouse] changed pop music forever, I remember knowing there was hope, and feeling not alone because of her. She lived jazz, she lived the blues.
How can I protect something so perfect without evil...
My new album that I'm creating, which is finished pretty much, was written with this new instinctual energy that I've developed getting to know my fans. They protect me, so now it's my destiny to protect them.
A middle finger is more New York than a corporate ambush. I bleed for my hometown, and I'd die for my fans.
It's cooler to be strong.
The Monster Ball is by nature a protest: A youth church experience to speak out and celebrate against all forms of discrimination + prejudice.
It's sort of like my past is an unfinished painting, and as the artist of that painting, I must fill in all the ugly holes and make it beautiful again.
Never be afraid to dream.
People ask me why I wear veils. I reply, I am mourning. Mourning what? Well I figure something shitty must be going on somewhere.
Let the blood and the bruises define your legacy.
Glam culture is ultimately rooted in obsession, and those of us who are truly devoted and loyal to the lifestyle of glamour are masters of its history. Or, to put it more elegantly, we are librarians.
You really don't need to be a celebrity or have money or have the paparazzi following you around to be famous.
Sometimes in life you don't always feel like a winner, but that doesn't mean you're not a winner.
Bare your struggles very close to your heart and have them be a part of you that you’re proud of instead of something that you’re ashamed of.
My fashion is part of who I am, and though I was not born with these clothes on, I was born this way.
Never be afraid to be kicked in the teeth. Let the blood and the bruises define your legacy.
I'm just a holy fool
You have to stop crying, and you have to go kick some ass.
A record deal doesn't make you an artist; you make yourself an artist
Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams.
Love is just a history that they may prove and when your gone ill tell them my religion is you
I hate the truth so much that i'd rather have a giant dose of bulls**t anyday
I am the excuse to explore your identity. To be exactly who you are and to feel unafraid. To not judge yourself, to not hate yourself.
Memories are not recycled like atoms and particles in quantum physics; they can be lost forever.
Its oke to be sad. I've been trained to love my darkness
Fight and push harder for what you believe in, you'd be surprised, you are much stronger than you think.
Dirty pony, I can't wait to hose you down.
There's something about lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
Watch very closely as the magical angel and I are swallowed by the rainbow twister, and left stranded on the glitter way.
Celebrate all the things you don't like about yourself. love yourself.
I'm half living my life between reality and fantasy at all times
You are a legend. Your self-invention matters. You are the artist of your own life.
Who's to say I'm not an entirely different person? Because I am. You have to understand, five years ago I was a waitress.
Take my picture Hollywood. I wanna be STAR
You can't have my heart and you won't use my mind, but do what you want with my body.
It’s not that I’ve been dishonest, it’s just that I loathe reality.
Fight and push harder for what you believe in, you’d be surprised, you are much stronger than you think.
If you don't have shadows, you're not in the light.
I don't need anybody's permission to be remembered. I will be. Whether they like it or not.
When you wanna do something and that little impulse goes off in your brain and says "Ooh, don’t do it!", you gotta go for it. That’s how you’re gonna be the person you wanna be.

You can't stop my voice cause you don't own my life but do what you want with my body.
