Lady Gaga is "quite traditional" when it comes to family
The `Judas` hitmaker - who is known for her love of eccentric outfits, including a dress made of meat and arriving in an -egg- for the Grammy awards earlier this year - does not think of herself as crazy and when it comes to family, she believes herself to be very normal.
Speaking on MTV show `LadyGaga: Inside the Outside`, she said: "I`m really quite traditional, actually, contrary to what some people might think about me.
"I`m quite traditional in the family sense. My dad was just trying to breathe normally. He`s still trying to breathe normally."
The 25-year-old singer was inspired to become a singer by her parents Joseph and Cynthia Germanotta, who encouraged her to pursue her interest in music by buying her records.
She said: "My parents got me Stevie Wonder `Signed, Sealed, Delivered` and The Beatles when I was younger.
"Good choices, mom and dad. Don`t spoon-feed me The Beatles and Stevie Wonder and Bruce Springsteen and Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin and Elton John and expect for me not to turn out this way."
LadyGaga - who was named as the world`s most powerful celebrity by Forbes magazine earlier this week - recently revealed she planned to have children one day but was currently busy "giving birth" to fans, which she dubs her "little monsters".
Asked if she planned to have a family one day, she said: "I think at some point, yeah, I`ll have a family and babies and all those things, but not right now.
"Not for a while. Right now I have lots of fans. I`m giving birth to lots of little monsters, so I need to keep down the stretch marks."
