Lady Gaga's wit shines through on her Twitter account -- at least judging by our list of top Lady Gaga tweets. When she's not limited to 140 characters, the former Stefani Germanotta is even more articulate. In interview after interview, she tosses off quotable quip after quotable quip about everything from sex and love to music and motherhood. Diana Benanti and Chrissy Wilmes combed Gaga's interviews from the past two years and plucked these pearls of wisdom. Enjoy.
"I think I would make quite a good mother. I'm a very good friend. But I'm not like really excited to have kids or anything. I'm really enjoying traveling the world and sleeping with really good-looking people." (eBaum's World, 2009)
"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, July 2010)
"I struggle with my feelings about the church in particular, but I guess it's quite honestly completely separate, isn't it? Religion and the church are two completely separate things. In terms of religion, I'm very religious. I was raised Catholic I believe in Jesus, I believe in God, I'm very spiritual -- I pray very much. But at the same time there's no one religion that doesn't hate or speak against or be prejudiced against another racial group or religious group or sexual group and for that I think religion is also bogus. So I suppose you could say I'm a quite religious woman that is very confused about religion. I dream of and envision a future where we have a more peaceful religion or a more peaceful world a more peaceful state of mind for the younger generation." (Larry King Live, June 1, 2010 via Huffington Post)
"I would not be able to breathe if I couldn't make art. I just wouldn't. Look at me. This is me on a normal day. I wake up in the morning, and I make my hairbow, and I put my cat suit on, and I call up everybody in the Haus of Gaga, and I say, "How are we gonna be brilliant today?" (YouTube interview, December 2008)
