The songstress is turning 30 on March 28 next year, and has a totally uplifting perspective about the big birthday. "My birthday is in March, so these are the last moments of my 20s," Gaga told Billboard. "I already mourned that in a way, and now I'm really excited about showing girls, and even men, what it can mean to be a woman in her 30s."
"Why is it that we're disposing of people once they pass that mark? It's suddenly, 'You're an old woman," she continued. "I'm not f**king old. I'm more sexual and powerful and intelligent and on my sh*t than I've ever been. I've come a long way through a lot of heartache and pain, but none of it made me damaged goods. It made me a fighter. I want to show women they don't need to try to keep up with the 19-year-olds and the 21-year-olds in order to have a hit. Women in music, they feel like they need to f**king sell everything to be a star. It's so sad. I want to explode as I go into my 30s." Yasss Gaga!
And that wasn't all. She continued, "Once you start being mindful and really going, 'Do I actually want that?,' you start to feel empowered and you find your value. I love being the annoying girl. I was a theater kid. I was in jazz band. I went to the Renaissance Faire. I was that girl who got made fun of, that nerdy girl. I believe in that girl. I believe in the integrity, intelligence and power of people like her, and I want to ignite it."
Considering the transformation Gaga has made this year with the success of her album with Tony Bennett and her starring role on American Horror Story: Hotel, we have no doubt Mother Monster will only get better with time. We can't wait to see what she has in store for 2016.
