While promoting her new music video for “G.U.Y.” Lady Gaga appeared on SiriusXM Hit 1’s the Morning Mash Up and admitted that when it comes to her relationship with boyfriend Taylor Kinney, she’s actually submissive!
“Oh yeah, he’s totally in charge. I mean when I am home I am like, shoes are off, I’m making him dinner… he has a job too and he is really busy,” the 27-year-old confessed.
“I’m in charge all day long, the last thing I want to do is tell him what to do, we are just really good friends.”
Gaga went on to tell other women to consider adapting the same mentality when it comes to their own romantic relationships.
“It’s not good for relationships to tell men what to do… female listeners who are out there,” she preached.
In the past, Lady Gaga has denied being a feminist, saying, “I’m not a feminist, I hail men, I love men. I celebrate American male culture, and beer, and bars and muscle cars…” but has since changed her view.
“I’m getting the sense that you’re a little bit of a feminist, like I am, which is good,” Gaga told an LA Times reporter in 2009. “I find that men get away with saying a lot in this business and women get away with saying very little.
"In my opinion, women need and want someone to look up to that they feel have the full sense of who they are, and says, ‘I’m great.’”
Being a strong, female role model who tells women to be submissive in their relationships doesn’t exactly sound like someone with a “full sense of who they are.”
But when it comes to her own relationship, whatever Gaga and the Chicago Fire actor have done in the past has definitely worked for the very-much-in-love pair—even if it remains a mystery to everyone, even them.
“I’m reserved, she’s not,” he told E! News at the 2014 Golden Globes. “For whatever reason, it just works.”
And while he may be more introverted—Mother Monster has assured fans he’s just more normal on the surface, but he’s actually a “hidden weirdo.”
“He is extremely strange, actually, and we complement each other’s weirdness,” she told Ellen Degeneres in November.
“At the end of the day, he’s my best friend and having your lover be your best friend, I mean, it’s the best thing ever. It’s the best thing I can say about it.”
