When asked why she called herself a “loser” in a new HBO special — which follows the pop superstar as she performs for five nights at Madison Square Garden — Gaga said, “Quite frankly, it’s very overwhelming. And do I feel like a loser sometimes? Yes. Of course I do. We all feel like losers sometimes.”

On a stranger note, Gaga confessed that she regularly sleeps in her ridiculous (my word) outfits and wigs. How she sleeps in leather bras and facial prosthetics is beyond me. But I guess that’s why she’s Gaga.
