Lady Gaga has insisted she is a real lady, admitting her eccentric costumes and raunchy behaviour are all just an act.
The singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, said she deliberately did a lot of things to get a reaction from people.
"I am Lady Gaga because in private I am a lady," the 24-year-old told the Daily Star.
"Don't be fooled by the way I look, underneath all this I know exactly who I am and what my boundaries are. They are all important to me.
"As a performer I'm outrageous and wild, but as a person I have a very strong moral code. I would never cheat on a man. I believe in honesty and integrity."
Gaga continued: "I dress to get people to stare. I say a lot of things for shock value and I do a lot of things to deliberately unsettle people, like going around in my underwear in the middle of winter. It gets a big reaction."
