London: Pop star Lady Gaga insists she wants to live a "normal" life and has no interest in the "glamorous" Hollywood social gatherings.
"I actually made a choice to keep my life pretty normal. Some point about two years ago I said to myself, `OK, am I going to put my toe in Hollywood`s pond and figure out if I want to live a glamorous life and assimilate to the glamorous lifestyle,` but I really didn`t want to do it," a website quoted her as saying.
"I still live where I always lived, I still hang out and drink whisky at the same bars. I still go to the same hardware store."
Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, says fans see her real side.
"I`ve become more and more confident as a woman and I don`t make any distinction between myself as Stefani, my birth name, and myself."
"Gaga - It`s just a nickname, I`m the same person through and through physically. Who my fans see that`s really who I am and they have never complained to me about it. If they do I will certainly be listening to it and paying attention as I want them to be happy."
