She's brazenly nicked and nicked and nicked to create something her own. There's no attempt to hide it, either. So on her first album, The Famewhich pre-empted her actual fame, she thanked Madonna and Bowie and Prince.
At a glance, you can see the bras and knickers of Madonna, the hats of Grace Jones, the body suits of Bowie. Whereas her first album instructed her fans to embrace their inner fame, this one could be addressed to a younger audience — follow your heart, no matter what your parents say.
The irony, of course, is that Gaga was not "born this way" but, as she says, to interpret it literally is to miss the point — we're born this way to be true to ourselves, whatever that is.
She explains the new song Hair. I am my hair. I would just say it's a surrealist extension of my being. I'm half living my life between reality and fantasy at all times.
It's best not to ask questions and just enjoy. If you're not wedded to reality or truth, you're entitled to say whatever you fancy. On the wall is a picture of Warhol's painting of Debbie Harry.

Nobody is quite sure how she did it, least of all her. It's no coincidence that her latest single is called Judasand uses that great biblical betrayal to tell a story of love gone wrong. After singing about fame on her first two albums, she says she's bored with the subject. She calls her fans little monsters and they call her Mother Monster. She's the only mother in our house. Outside the arena in Cleveland, the fans are gathering — young men and women, girls and boys.
Aaron Fleming is wearing thigh-length PVC boots, black tights, black jacket, one black glove and a bonnet. Why does he like her? Thirteen-year-old Casey Jones is wearing a blond wig, tattoos and fishnets.
Now the freaks are rising up and taking a stand. Gaga's first gig in was supporting them in front of people in New York. The band had a small but devoted indie following — not unlike today.
Lady Starlight used to spin heavy-metal discs with Gaga. She is 10 years older and as dressed down trackie bottoms as her friend is dressed up. Now she DJs before Gaga's shows. They make an unusual team.

Why did they get on well? And I'd spin metal in between her singing pop songs in a bikini. Now that she's achieved it, on such a massive scale, does it get to Gaga? She talks of the gossip, the bitchiness, the lies. How does Gaga cope? She's very focused on 'What am I doing next? Then the curtain goes up, and there she is in all her lunatic majesty. This is not a gig, it's theatre.
There are crashed cars, voracious monsters, trees with razor-blade leaves. It's hard to follow the plot, but she seems to be passing through the valley of self-harm. The outfits change by the song — one minute she's all formal elegance, the next there are streaks of fire shooting from her bosom and crotch.
She jumps on the piano and plays with her feet. She douses herself in blood — cheeks, shirt, belly, all haemorrhage red. But I think there's more to it than this. She is a sincere believer in the cult of Gaga — she really does think she's a modern-day Messiah, here to lead her fans to a brighter, better future. And if they buy the records and spread the word along the way, so much the better. Gaga has now set her sights on breaking into India — a vast, untapped market.
Stefani Germanotta was born in New York to self-made parents — her father, Joseph, was an internet entrepreneur, mother Cynthia a telecommunications executive. She started playing piano at four, attended a private convent school on Manhattan's salubrious Upper East Side, escaped to the less salubrious Lower East Side to perform at open-mic nights at 14, won a place at New York University's Tisch School of The Arts at 17, where she studied music and left before completing her degree because she was miserable and impatient for the real thing.
Byshe was living in Los Angeles recording an album that's sold 14m copies. A day after playing Cleveland, the Gaga-mobile is on the road to Chicago where she will sing on one of Oprah Winfrey's final shows. The Haus of Gaga, the name she has given to her creative team, has taken over the top floor of a luxury hotel and transformed it into a bustling factory. In one room, her video diary is being updated, in another the Oprah set is being designed, and in another outfits are being vetted.
Gaga, now 25, strides from one room to the other, huge and imperious in wraparound shades, mega heels and black Alexander McQueen power suit. It's easy to forget she's only 5ft 2in. I am taken to a room to wait for her. One is always placed in situ so she can make an entrance. Her jacket is barely buttoned, and she is wearing nothing underneath.

It seems like a statement outfit — look at this and try telling me I'm a man as has been rumoured or anorexic ditto. I stare at her forehead in vain. The previous day she had said it's difficult to talk about the show to people who haven't seen it.
She was right, I say, it's like a revivalist meeting. It is a religious experience. But it's like a pop cultural church. I'm teaching people to worship themselves. So religion then begins to affect social values and that in turn affects self-esteem, bullying in school, teen suicides, all those things. Does having such influence scare her? If you were to ask me what I want to do, I don't want to be a celebrity, I want to make a difference. I never wanted to look pretty on stage and sing about something we've all heard about before.
