Lady Gaga bares all in Vanity Fair

Lady Gaga graces the cover of the September Vanity Fair in the nude. It's no different in the interview.  The 24-year-old singer reveals more than her body, coming clean about her use of cocaine. "I won't lie; it's occasional," she says. "And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year."

But Lady Gaga says she doesn't condone drug use. "I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way," she says. "I don't want my fans to think they have to be that way to be great. It's in the past. It was a low point, and it led to disaster."

She also admits the glamour of fame hasn't helped her love life. "I'm perpetually lonely. I'm lonely when I'm in relationships," says Gaga, who is reportedly back with her ex-boyfriend, DJ and bartender Luc Carl. "It's my condition as an artist."

“I’m drawn to bad romances," she goes on. "And my song ['Bad Romance'] is about whether I go after those or if they find me. I’m quite celibate now; I don’t really get time to meet anyone.”

So there you have it: Lady Gaga, known for her skimpy outfits and sex-infused performances, doesn't have sex because she's too busy. That and she's afraid of losing her mojo: “I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina.”

The September Vanity Fair will be available on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles Wednesday, and nationally and on the iPad on Aug. 10.
