'Poker Face' singer Lady Gaga has revealed her music is inspired by her "insatiable" desire for sex
Lady Gaga's songs are inspired by sex.
The 'Poker Face' singer says lovemaking is a very important aspect of her life and helps her express her creativity during songwriting.
She said: "It's metaphoric and conceptual, with an image attached to it. All music is inspired by sex. It's the primal rush and instinct and the insatiable need for orgasm and procreation. Isn't that why we're all here? Love and sex are the only reason to make art."
The 'Just Dance' hitmaker admits so much of her music is about sex, her label bosses would prefer it if she "toned" her lyrics down.
She added to the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper: "We Americans are quite hard on women for strong sexuality. But it's really who I am and what I feel comfortable with. If anything, I'm probably the only pop singer on the planet whose record label would prefer if she toned it down. You'll never hear me say, 'Give it to me, baby.' I say it in a different way."
Explaining one of her lines, "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick", Lady Gaga laughed: "It's another one of my very thoughtful metaphors for c**k."
