She tells the magazine, "My album covers are not sexual at all, which was an issue at my record label. I fought for months, and I cried at meetings. They didn't think the photos were commercial enough�The last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself."
She covers a host of other topics including a recurring theme in her music, "I feel that if I can show my demise artistically to the public, I can somehow cure my own legend. I can show you so you're not looking for it. I'm dying for you on domestic television�here's what it looks like, so no one has to wonder." - read more and see photos from Lady Gaga's cover shoot
