Lady Gaga’s new single is about how her mother used to cut her hair while she was sleeping.
The singer was inspired to write the track ‘Hair’ by how her parents tried to change her look after she dressed up to go out, and how important your haircut is as part of your personality.
She told UK radio station KISS: “When I was young my mom and dad used to ask me to not leave the house dressed a certain way and asked me to change my hair.
“My mom would even cut my hair when I was asleep because I had really long split hairs, because I liked it really long like a hippy.
“Your hair is your glory and my hair represents my identity as it does represent the identity for many people.”
Gaga, 25, has recently been in the UK to play a free show in Carlisle, northern England, and when she is free in the country likes nothing more than to indulge in some of its traditions.
She explained: “My favourite thing to do is drive away and find a pub in the middle of nowhere and have some fish and chips with mushy peas and a pint of beer.”
The singer also said despite her The Monster Ball Tour finishing, she hopes its legacy will live on.
She said: “I am already putting together the next show, It’s totally evolution and revolution but not reinvention.
“I really like that idea that The Monster Ball is its own thing that will never die. I just want to continue the legacy of it as the fans will always be monsters!”
Lady Gaga will be the guest host for the Kiss 10 O’clock Takeover at which can be heard at 10am on Saturday May 21 in the UK.
