“What people don’t always really know about me. (They think) I’m always putting things on to be provocative or shocking for the sake of it. But actually, it’s not that easy to wear all of those things and to do it with poise and precision and to hit your mark every time,” Gaga told eonline.com. The “Poker face” crooner is grateful that she’s not had to compromise her style which she considers her “art” to be in the show.
“My manager, Bobby Campbell, just said to me, ‘You’re like a contortionist. You just stand there for hours in pain in those outfits and you have no clue when you’re on stage and you get off and it just all hits you’. And he’s right. That’s exactly what happens. It’s what I do. That’s my art.”
“So (‘American Horror Story’) is actually really stretching me in a great way. It’s like I have to take the things that I’m good at and make them even better, and keep them the same every time but still loose so that Ryan (Murphy, executive producer) gets something really truly organic from me,” she said.
