AceShowbiz - Lady GaGa is a very insecure person in the eyes of Donatella Versace. Despite her bold statement, the fashion designer, who has been a good friend of the "Born This Way" hitmaker, doesn't think that being an insecure person is necessarily a bad thing.
In fact, the younger sister of Gianni Versace has nothing but praises for GaGa. In an interview with Attitude Magazine, she gushed, "I adore her." She then shared on how she viewed the 32-year-old singer, "GaGa is a very emotional person, she’s very insecure, which I like about her. Every true artist is insecure."
Noting that the two of them have "become good friends," the 63-year-old claimed that she was "so happy" GaGa landed the leading role in "A Star Is Born". She continued to talk about an incident at the premiere of the hit musical film. "I went to the premiere with her and she was crying," she recalled. "I said, ‘Enough of this crying. Smile, you’ve made it.’ I hope she wins an Oscar."
Back in 2013, GaGa released a song titled "Donatella" in honor of the famed Italian vice president of Versace group. At the time, she said in an interview, "'Donatella' is my love letter to Donatella." She further explained the track in her "ARTPOP" album was about "being a fearless female and not caring what people say about you - being proud of who you are and walking the walk no matter what."
In another topic, Donatella also opened up to about growing up around gay community. "Yes, [I was always] around gay men," she admitted to Attitude Magazine. "But not only gay men, but by artists, real artists: people who left a mark on history. I mean, I met Andy Warhol. I don’t think of him as just a gay person, these people are artists."
"I had the privilege through Gianni [Versace] and through the gay community to meet intellectual people: to become accustomed, to be educated, to learn about the culture," she continued to point out the positives. "I was a normal classical girl who went to school and studied history, which I loved as you can see in this house, but my mind was always a clash between this and what was around pop culture and high culture and history."
