Although Lady Gaga is currently appearing in classy jazz concerts with the legendary Tony Bennett, she has not shed her signature Artpop flair and love for sporting wigs the size of refrigerators. Rather, as Mother Monster recently told the King of All Media on the Howard Stern Show, her work with Bennett has given her the chance to truly enjoy making music again.

Stern asked Gaga if there was anything more to her and Bennett’s relationship than smooth jazz covers and dancing cheek to cheek.

“We have such a wonderful friendship,” Lady Gaga said. “He’s certainly a mentoring figure … He just looks 25 years old when I’m singing with him … I’ve never been so happy singing with somebody else.”

The man who has Gaga’s heart is actor Taylor Kinney, who she has been dating for over three years. Of course, leave it to Howard to ask the blunt question: Are there wedding bells in the future for Mother Monster? The Speechless singer got a little tongue-tied – which means it’s definitely a possibility.

“I can’t really imagine being with anyone other than who I’m with right now,” Gaga said. “He’s extremely talented. What I do feed off is my ability to have an intelligent conversation with him about how it feels to be a creative person … You need to keep people around you that want you to be happy.”

Stern also informed Gaga about rumors involving her alleged love affair with Taylor Swift. LG doesn’t think TSwizzle would be too into it, but she does have respect for her fellow chart topper.

Her and I were sitting next to each other [at an awards show], and she goes, “OH MY GOD! I LOVE ARTPOP! APPLAUSE IS MY FAVORITE SONG!” And I was thinking “Yeah, yeah, yeah, this chick is full of sh-t.” But then my buddy called me – Brandon, who’s my stylist. And he was styling her for a shoot, and he goes, “Taylor Swift is in here blasting Artpop so loud, and she is dancing, and she is posing.” And I said to myself, “I like this girl.” You know why? ‘Cause she said the same thing to my face as she said behind my back. If she’s interested, she can call me.

Lady Gaga struck a more serious chord when she hinted at experiencing sexual abuse at the age of 19, when she entered the record making realm. Nevertheless, Mother Monster refuses to be defined by the incident.

“It happens every day, and it’s scary, and it’s sad,” Gaga said. “I’ll be damned if somebody’s going to say that every creatively intelligent thing that I ever did is all boiled down to one d-ckhead.”
