Lady G's secret Meatball recipe & other cool tibits...
From Lady GaGa..
She takes Italian pomodoro tomatoes ("the ones that have long stems"), slices and cores them and sears them in a pan with salt and pepper. To this base she adds¬†star anise and fennel, which she tears by hand, and mixes the ingredients until they're "pasty." She then adds "a ton of olive oil," thyme, basil, a bay leaf and the fragments of a garlic clove she "smacks" with her hand on the table. That's her secret? "Well it's not a secret anymore!" Gaga laughed.
Advice from Lady G:
¬†"To any little sweethearts that are listening - don't touch cocaine, it's the devil."
Lady G and $$$:
¬†Gaga insists that she doesn't "give a f--- about money at all," mentioning that she's just happy she can afford her $1,100 a month apartment. In fact, according to Mother Monster herself, the only things that she's bought with her money are heart surgery and a car for her dad.
The Edge of Glory song was inspired by Lady G's Grandparents Love:
...on the day her grandfather died: She said to her father, "Grandpa's about to cross over into his glorious moment. It's hard now because he's on the edge." And: "When my grandma was saying goodbye [to my grandfather], there was something so intense that happened for me that I saw ... as sad as the moment was, they both were acknowledging that they had really won in life because they had each other.
*Makes me love the song even more!
