Lady Gaga has revealed art is the inspiration behind her show-stopping performances and album artwork.

The Monster's Ball star was asked to pick "something beautiful" for her Fame Monster album, but declined - instead, she picked a shot with her crying blood.

"The last thing any young person needs is another photograph of a woman rubbing her glistening t**s, enjoying life, because that's not how we f*****g feel," she told Q.

"I take what I do seriously. My art is liberation. Things confine us as human beings as a society, and I want to free you."

Gaga - real name Stefani Joanna Angelina Germanotta - reckons she's a lady through and through, despite her revealing outfits.

"I believe in certain institutions; cooking, serving dinner, taking care of my family. So I consider myself quite the lady," she said.
