Lady Gaga has ‘screw loose’ – mum

2012-03-17 07:32

Los Angeles – Lady Gaga’s mother believes the singer has got a “screw loose”.

Cynthia Germanotta admits she started worrying about her 25-year-old daughter’s mental health after watching one of her typically eccentric performances.

She explained: “When Gaga started emerging, when she was performing – I think it was at Joe’s Pub downtown – and she was in her bikini performing Lady Starlight and decided that night to actually light hairspray on fire.

“And some people left when that happened. A lot of people stayed and thought it was cool. But her father and I were like, honestly, he said, ‘I think she has a screw loose’.”’

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey for her Next Chapter series, Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, also reveals she wants a football team-sized family.

The You and I singer – who is dating Vampire Diaries actor Taylor Kinney – said: “I want kids, I want a soccer team and I want a husband. I don’t want to have one kid. I want to have a few. I want to experience that but not yet.’’

Now planning a media blackout, Gaga insists the Oprah interview – which is due to air on Sunday – will be her last for a while.

She explained: “The newest thing that I do, I don’t read a damn thing. No press, no television, no, if my mom calls and says, ‘did you hear about?’ I don’t want to know nothing about anything that is going on in relation to music.

“Other than this interview Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time.”
