I keep finding more and more reasons to appreciate Lady Gaga. For those of you who only know her for catchy pop songs and too much skin, read her Wikipedia page and a few interviews; her sincerity and demeanor will surprise you. (I would venture to say she is definitely an ISFP--the quintessential artist.) This morning I happened to find myself at her IMDB profile where I found a quote that I really liked:

My album covers are not sexual at all, which was an issue at my record label. I fought for months, and I cried at meetings. They didn't think the photos were commercial enough... In my opinion, the last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself.
 
And more from her Wikipedia page:

She has six known tattoos, among them a curling German script on her left arm which quotes the poet Rainer Maria Rilke:
 
In the deepest hour of the night, confess to yourself that you would die if you were forbidden to write. And look deep into your heart where it spreads its roots, the answer, and ask yourself, must I write?
Lady Gaga described Rilke as her "favorite philosopher," commenting that his "philosophy of solitude" spoke to her.

When I'm writing music, I'm thinking about the clothes I want to wear on stage. It's all about everything altogether—performance art, pop performance art, fashion. For me, it's everything coming together and being a real story that will bring back the super-fan. I want to bring that back. I want the imagery to be so strong that fans will want to eat and taste and lick every part of us.

She is a true artist. I may not enjoy every song or outfit, but I know I will never be disappointed by her.
