Look, as much as Lady Gaga‘s willingness to bring her stage act into the real world annoys me, I will give her credit for working the creative angle. That being said, I can see how being subjected to lobster hats and fried egg dresses might cross the line from “cool” to “kill it with fire” if I were being subjected to it 24/7. So you can I empathize with Gaga’s boyfriend Taylor Kinney for wanting her to drop the act when she’s at home with him. Or maybe she just defines private, intimate moments as extending her co-dependent relationship with complete strangers (aka little monsters) in their home together. In Touch reports:
Lady Gaga‘s boyfriend of six months, Taylor Kinney, has told her to check her alter ego at the door when she’s with him. “Gaga started living and breathing her character 24/7 because she felt her fans wanted that,” dishes a source to In Touch. Too bad Tyler, 30, didn’t. While he held his tongue at first, he’s now comfortable enough with Gaga, 25, to make it clear he has no desire to live with a stage act. “Taylor has convinced her that he loves the real Stefani,” says an insider to In Touch. Luckily for him, the singer promised to be “more human” — after all, she wasn’t born that way!
Look, I respect Gaga for being a tireless worker, but you can’t fall in love with or bang a piece of artwork. After a while, you need to throw on some jeans and a sweater, make some popcorn in the microwave, and catch some old episodes of SNL on Netflix. Otherwise, you run the risk of alienating those closest to you with your weird attempts to be human art.
