Gaga: "I never said I was a gay icon."

Lady Gaga continues to promote ARTPOP‘s imminent release, most recently in an interview with British gay Bible Attitude, in which she declares her so-called “feud” with Madonna is poppycock—as is her status as a “gay icon.”

And if you think Gaga is trying to topple Madonna as pop music’s gay-icon supreme, think again:

But… but… but… but here, where do I say I’m a gay icon? I never said I was a gay icon. When did that happen? Are those lyrics on the album? Absolutely not. I don’t even consider myself… I don’t even know what that word means. That was a label that was invented years ago. I’m a… [pauses] I’m a gay supporter.

Is that like a jockstrap?

She might not want to be put on a gay pedestal, but Mother Monster does count herself as part of the LGBT community:

I mean, I am bisexual, I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. I don’t need to – I’m sorry if this is a bit vulgar – but I don’t need to eat pussy in front of the whole world for people to take me seriously. You can believe it or not, it’s just here, I’m honest. I’m not saying it to be controversial; there you have it, here I am, take it or leave it.
