"I am – Stefani is – a perpetually tortured artist. That’s why I changed my name. I can’t be her in public. She would be a mess!" the former Stefani Germanotta explains to Elle in its October issue, on newsstands Sept. 24.
"Everyone is so cynical – that I can’t purely love my fans, or share an honest story about my past, without someone asking me if I really, truly struggled," she says. "Do you know how much dirt I ate? Do you know the men I had to crawl through, the people that disrespected my body, my mind, my heart?"
But don’t worry, she says. She can take the criticism – because she’s a fighter. ”I’m great under pressure,” she says. “I’m a warrior. I’m Rocky, round 12.”
That’s right Gaga! Be sure to pick up the issue! #rozOonTheGo

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LADY GAGA!!! WISHING YOU MANY MORE!
I remember when I first met Miss Gaga. I was working at Interscope Records and before she was signed to the record label she would come by with Vincent Herbert from her management team. She dressed super ‘out there’ then, even before she was famous! She would walk by my desk and each and every time I’d think to myself, “Who is this girl?” In a good way! I loved her style and her confidence. She walked throughout the building with such assurance. Once we officially signed her to the label she was introduced to the staff once again, but this time as “Our new superstar”! And that she was! Shortly after, we were listening to the final touches of her debut album 'The Fame' and viewing the first edit of her video 'Just Dance'. I met producer RedOne at this time as well; a very humble-talented guy. He produced one of my favorite records from Gaga: ‘Boys, Boys, Boys’. So, Lady Gaga knew this was her destiny, she owned it before it officially happened. That’s how you have to live life people! xo @rozOonTheGo
Stars are stepping up to help with relief efforts after Superstorm Sandy ravaged the East Coast.
"If it wasn’t for NYC: the Lower East Side, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today," she wrote. "New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion."
The “Born This Way” singer continues: “Please accept this gift on behalf of myself, my parents Joe and Cynthia, my sister Natali; with our deepest gratitude New York for raising us. Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours.”
Pitchfork: You recently faced a backlash after saying that you don’t vote because ”there’s something else out there pushing the buttons.” How did you interpret that whole situation?
Kendrick Lamar: I’m a person of my own opinions, that’s how I was raised. I speak what I feel. The world is bigger than us, and I’m the only person that said that. A lot of people feel the same way but they’re scared to talk. They’re really scared of the truth— they only want half of the truth. I’ve been living like that— forever in fear— but I know what to say and how to say it now. I ain’t scared of myself. Y’all may be scared; I’m not scared.
