Lady Gaga is ready for her big screen debut.
In an interview on Sirius XM’s The Morning Mash Up! Friday, she was asked if she saw herself becoming an actress.
If there was a movie about her life, she has a few ideas on who could play her.
“I’ve always been a big fan of Rosario Dawson. Oh, you know what, I would have Marisa Tomei play me,” she said. “I am such a Marisa Tomei fan. All my friends call me Marisa when I get angry. Because my New York accent just flies out of my body and I start smacking my gum.”
Gaga also confirmed again she spent 72 hours inside her Grammy egg — but wouldn’t reveal how she ate or used the bathroom inside.
“I am not going to explain the details. I am a lady,” she joked.
Host Nicole asked her if she spent Valentine’s Day with “a lover.”
“If I had one,” Gaga said. “I was in my bed with tons of shoes. I was holding all my shoes, my Valentine’s.”
Besides footwear, Gaga has another vice: whiskey.
“I am on the drunk diet,” she said. “I live my life as I want to, and creatively. I like to drink whiskey and stuff while I am working. But the deal is I’ve got to work out every day and I work out hung over if I am hung over. And it’s about the cross-training and keeping yourself inspired. I have to say, I do a ton of yoga….”
“So I have been really, really working very hard,” she continued. “I am at a turning point in my career where I really want to perfect singing live while dancing. I have never been a lip-syncer…I want to really focus on singing live and dancing at the same time and making it really great.”
Gaga says her favorite Grammy performances were: “Cee Lo and Gwyneth [Paltrow] were so wonderful…Mick Jagger was just….insane—so amazing to watch. I loved the Aretha Franklin Tribute. I thought Christina [Aguilera] sounded amazing. And, Jennifer Hudson sounded so amazing. And I love Florence [and the Machine]…everyone…it was an amazing night.”
(She thinks people were “too tough” on Aguilera’s Super Bowl performance. “She is so wonderful and she is so talented. And, I think we’re in this stage, right now, in the industry where everyone is…very analytical and very hard on everyone. ‘Born This Way’ is about no judgment, and no prejudice.”)
She’ll bring “New York-based bands” on her next tour.
“Right now, it’s Lady Starlight with Scissor Sisters. And before it was Lady Starlight with Semi Precious Weapons. I suppose next year on the new tour, I’ll bring some more New York bands,” she said.
She said that despite plans to tour with Kanye West falling apart, they are “still friends.”
“I would like to see that show,” Gaga said.
