The 25-year-old singer - who was named the most influential celebrity in the world earlier this month - believes her critics want to tear her down and "knife" her when she released her single `Born This Way` earlier this year.
She said: "Peoplewant you to fail. Peoplewant to tear me down, they were going to knife me anyway. The good news is that when they look back they`ll all remember how brave I was, `She put out a record about being yourself and we crucified her for it, but she soared on and sat at number one for six weeks and told everyone to f**k off!`"
After being bullied throughout her teen years, the `Judas` hitmaker revealed she is keen to make "nerds" feel like "winners".
Gaga added in an interview with Britain`s Time Out magazine: "If you were a cool kid at school, that doesn`t mean you`re not welcome. I`m not trying to further divisiveness.
"Those people who feel bullied or like nerds, I`m trying to make them feel like winners, but I`m not trying to make them hate all of the cool kids more. It`s all about closing the gap and bringing people closer together. And that`s what the pop end of my music is all about."
