The Oprah special will also feature an interview with Gaga’s mother, Cynthia Germanotta, who admitted that her daughter may have a “screw loose.” In the online preview, she tells Oprah:
“When Gaga started emerging, when she was performing I think it was at Joe’s Pub downtown. And she was in her bikini performing ”˜Lady Starlight’ and decided that night to actually light hairspray on fire. And some people left when that happened and a lot of people stayed and thought it was cool. But her father and I were like, honestly, he said, ”˜I think she has a screw loose.’”
The absolute best part of watching this clip is seeing Gaga’s reaction. Her expression is that of a teenager who loves her mom but whose face is really saying, “You’re embarrassing me, Mom. Stop speaking now!” It’s not disrespectful by any means; it’s actually kind of endearing. It just goes to show that even someone as incredibly famous as Lady Gaga has a mother, and that their family dinners probably aren’t that much different from yours or mine when you take away the whole celebrity aspect. (Check it out here and you’ll see what I mean.)
Aside from this Oprah appearance, Gaga doesn’t plan on granting interviews any time soon. “I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time…No press, no television. If my mom calls and says, ”˜Did you hear about…’ I shut it all off,” she said.
