London: She is known for her bizarre sense of fashion but Lady Gaga is not exactly modest when it comes to her talents and claims she has one of the "greatest voices" in the music industry.

Gaga, who made outlandishness a new style statement with an array of striking outfits like Kermit the frog coat firework bra and infamous meat dress, debuts on the cover of Vogue magazine in March.

"Speaking purely from a musical standpoint, I think I am a great performer,` she tells the magazine. I am a talented entertainer. I consider myself to have one of the greatest voices in the industry. I consider myself to be one of the greatest songwriters.

"I wouldn`t say that I am one of the greatest dancers, but I am really quite good at what I do. I think its OK to be confident in yourself," Gaga told the magazine`s March `power issue`.

Gaga had toned down her bizarreness for a lady like appearance for the cover shoot but still remained close to her original style. The 24-year-old star donned a white feathered ball gown, complete with short pink bobbed wig, bleached out eyebrows and crimson lipstick in one shot, a daily reported.

She is also featured in an extravagant pale green gown, along with a tailored white and black smoking jacket and fitted trousers.

In the accompanying interview, the pop star introduced bar manager Luc Carl as her `boyfriend` and dubbed her fans `little monsters.`

"They`re the only people on the planet who in an instant can make me just lose it. I see myself in them. I was this really bad, rebellious misfit of a person - I still am-sneaking out, going to clubs, drugs, alcohol, older men, younger men.

"You imagine it, I did it. I was just a bad kid. And I look at them, and every show there`s a little more eyeliner, a little more freedom...," the singer said.

Gaga said she found it amusing to be on the cover of the magazine because during her difficult school days she always thought she was the one who will go down the line.

Gaga is releasing her new album Born This Way this May, along with a single of the same name this week.
