The eccentric singer shot to fame last year and has had a string of international hits since. She is currently single, and hopes to stay that way because she is convinced love is damaging to a musician`s career.
"Too much devotion, too much love can kill you. I find it romantic but also incredibly sad when artists die of a broken heart," she told British magazine More!
The star also worries that when she does eventually fall in love she-ll run out of inspiration for her songs. So much of her music is driven by her search for a soul mate, she is scared she will be unable to write hits when she finds one.
"The search for love provides nourishment for the artistic soul. I`m afraid that as soon as you find real love, there won`t be anything left to write songs about," she said.
Gaga shocked fans earlier this year when she announced her celibacy.
Despite her provocative lyrics and revealing outfits, the 24-year-old is determined to send a positive message to young fans who might be feeling pressure to have sex.
"I remember the cool girls when I was growing up," she said. "Everyone started to have sex. But it`s not really cool anymore to have sex all the time. It`s cooler to be strong and independent."
