Lady Gaga was notoriously private about her personal life, but since about a year ago, as she was gearing up to release her 'ARTPOP' album, she's been a lot more open, especially when it comes to her love life.

In a new interview with Harper's Bazaar, the pop star got even more candid about things like fame, her lifestyle and on a more serious note, how she wants to be remembered.

On Whether or Not Fame Has Changed Her:

I'm actually not very different at all. I work all day, do research, sketch my ideas, prepare for performances. My experience with fame has been the opposite: "How can I stop this from changing me?" I mean I'm not broke anymore-that's good! But today I'm more comfortable with being who I am. When I was younger, I felt pressure to become someone else once I became successful. But it's the intention of the work that's changed. I have fans now. I have a new purpose: to remind them that I am one of them, that we are one another. My consciousness has changed.

On Fashion:

he fashion I've acquired over the years is so sacred to me-from costumes to couture, high fashion to punk wear I've collected from my secret international hot spots. I keep everything in an enormous archive in Hollywood. The clothes are on mannequins, also on hangers and in boxes with a photo of each piece, and there's a Web site where I can go to look through everything.

On How She Wants to Be Remembered:

I don't want to be remembered as anything but brave. The only good intention to make money is to help others. I want to be Oprah. I want to be Melinda Gates. If I ever sell products other than my talents, then it will be to give more to others.

Mother Monster also talked about how she doesn't necessarily have a "home" because of her lifestyle, about being depressed last year, beating an eating disorder and a whole lot more.
