"Yeah, that was my claim to fame (Beautiful, Dirty, Rich). I was just heavily immersed in that life. I was a f**king scenester. I was partying in a particular lifestyle that everybody lived. It inspired me to try to understand what fame was really all about because we all felt so famous. None of us were. It was because of our love for our work, my love for the music, my love for the fashion, art, culture. Through that, you create an inner fame and I duped a lot of people into thinking I was somebody that I wasn’t. What I mean to say is I wasn’t born into royalty, I had to earn it. I figured out a way to earn it.” Gaga 2008
