Fearsome-looking rock goddess Lady Gaga is scared of babies, not in the "OMG I'm afraid I'm going to drop him!" way or the "they look like little martians!" way, but in this way:
"I think, creatively, as a woman, you change once you give birth. I'm totally not ready for that," she says in the recent issue of Rolling Stone (which promises to be a big issue with the provocative Gaga cover as well as the General Stanley McChrystal mouthing off against Obama story).
I absolutely agree, you do change creatively when you give birth. I'm so much more creative now that I ever was before children.
Pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood help you tap into a range of emotions and suffering that you didn't even realize you were capable of before. Babies would probably give Lady Gaga some ideas for new topics she hasn't covered yet. Course, the problem isn't so much creativity as it is finding the time to express it.
Gaga talks about her picture-perfect childhood during the interview, and reveals her "own quest for an artistic journey to f*ck myself up like [Andy] Warhol and [David] Bowie and Mick [Jagger]."
Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, says she worries about being a good role model to a child: "You have to be careful about how much you reveal to people who look up to you so much," she says. "I don't want to be a bad example. I'm not a victim."
Is it just me or does this sound like the makings of a great role-model and an awesome mother? That plus the fact that her future son or daughter won't have any trouble pronouncing her name, one of baby's very first words.
