Larry King and Lady Gaga (Gaga being on the right) go suspenders to suspenders in an interview that asked the singer a lot of personal questions — does she have lupus?
“You know, lupus is in my family and it is genetic,” Lady Gaga tells Larry (via E! News). “It’s funny, cause my mother told me the other day that my fans were quite worried about me because I did talk about the fact that I was tested for lupus.”
“The truth is I don’t show any signs, any symptoms of lupus, but I have tested borderline positive for the disease, so as of right now I don’t have it,” she explained. “But I have to take good care of myself.”
On another personal level, Larry asks Lady Gaga about how she’s coping with Michael Jackson‘s death.
“I was actually asked to open for Michael on his tour and we were going to open for him at the O2 and we were working on making it happen,” she shared.
“Michael’s death was devastating for me regardless of whether or not I was supposed to go on tour with him, Lady Gaga adds. “He’s such an inspiration and remarkable human being. I guess I suppose some of my fascination with death and the demise of celebrity goes along with me watching these hugely iconic and amazing people that I have heralded and admired my whole life become destroyed. Whether self-destroyed or destroyed by the media.”
