Apparently Lady Gaga is more than just a mopey singer piggybacking on the backs of greats like David Bowie and Madonna. No, she's also some sort of martyr. Or at least that's what we think she's trying to say in her new interview and cover shoot in the January issue of Elle.

“I feel that if I can show my demise artistically to the public, I can somehow cure my own legend," Gaga, known mostly for her outlandish outfits and her on-stage blood-smearing and fire-setting theatrics, blabs. "I can show you so you’re not looking for it. I’m dying for you on domestic television — here’s what it looks like, so no one has to wonder.”

Great. Thanks. Much appreciated.

And while the Lady is often dressed like a tramp, she says she tries to keep that skin-baring aesthetic off the artwork for her CDs. “My album covers are not sexual at all, which was an issue at my record label. I fought for months, and I cried at meetings. They didn’t think the photos were commercial enough," reveals LG. "The last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself.”

But apparently writhing in blood is just peachy?
