[GAGA DOESN'T TAKE CHRISTINA'S BATE IN RESPONSE TO CHRISTINA CALLING HER A SHEMALE]
I’m not offended by it. But I love my gay fans so much because they always run to my rescue and are so sweet to defend me. But truthfully, I’m not offended by it. I talk endlessly in my interviews about David Bowie and Grace Jones, and how much they both have inspired my work and my fashion. And they’re both extremely androgynous and have a lot of enigmatic imagery. Stuff that is provocative and crosses sexual boundaries. So, for me, it’s a creative decision with my fashion to be androgynous and scary, so I wasn’t really offended by it, as much as everyone thought I would be.
