Lady Gaga has made it no secret that relationships can sometimes hinder her artistic process. She told Vanity Fair, "I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they're going to take my creativity from me through my vagina." You see how that can complicate an otherwise good relationship, right?
Of course, Gaga may have been speaking hyperbolically, but the message is clear: her career comes first. She echoed the sentiment in Cosmopolitan (via Page Six), saying, "Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore."
Gaga apparently practices what she preaches because an insider told Radar Online, "Taylor has told her she's married to her career…Gaga never stops working—she writes songs in the shower and dreams up new outfits in her sleep."
