“A source” says Gaga’s new dude Taylor Kinney is not too stoked on her inability to separate her real, everyday self from the character she plays. “Gaga started living and breathing her character 24/7 because she felt her fans wanted that,” said the source. This hews pretty closely to the gripes voiced by Gaga herself (dressed in drag as Jo Calderone) at the VMAs this past fall: “I want her to be real, but she says Jo, I’m not real. I’m theater! And you and I…this is just rehearsal.”
I can see how this would be annoying for someone who cares not just about the made-up character Lady Gaga, but the real person Stefani Germanotta as well. Then again, if you want someone to be real with you and not constantly “on,” maybe you shouldn’t date a self-described “fame monster.”
That said, we are not sure if this is completely true because several firsthand account stories from people who know Gaga’s ex, Luc Carl, that she’s actually pretty normal when she’s having downtime with her friends and her man.
