Lady Gaga Confesses She's "Terrified of Babies," for Real

Lady Gaga’s never been conventional, but her latest statements about having kids take the cake. “I’m terrified of babies,”Lady Gaga tells Rolling Stone. “I think, creatively, as a woman, you change once you give birth. I’m totally not ready for that.” Terrified? Of the little creatures who idolize her? Creatures who often say her name (gaga!) as their inaugural word? For Lady Gaga, babies are a core constituency, one she might not want to alienate.

Yes, “I’m considering not having kids” or “I might wait for motherhood” might have been a bit less sensational. Of course, this is a woman who loves sensation. And her desire not to have kids might actually have less to do with her self-professed babyphobia and more to do with her own younger years:

The Lady Gaga Rolling Stone interview also alludes to a serious trauma in her past, but she won’t name it. “You have to be careful about how much you reveal to people who look up to you so much. I don’t want to be a bad example. I’m not a victim.” What she does reveal is that the trauma was of her own making. “I will say wholeheartedly that I had the most wonderful mother and father. I was never abused. I didn’t have a bad childhood. All of the things I went through were on my own quest for an artistic journey to fuck myself up like [Andy] Warhol and [David] Bowie and Mick [Jagger].”

    She’s not really saying she’s afraid of babies. She’s saying she’s afraid of the change they bring–and nobody can deny that they do change your life! She says she’s “not ready” which seems like a perfectly justified sentiment to express.
