Lady Gaga takes inspiration from Rocky IV
Lady Gaga has revealed that she gets inspiration from a moving scene in the boxing action-epic Rocky IV.
The fashion icon told Rolling Stone magazine that her favourite part of the movie was when Rocky Balboa receives advice from Duke mid way through his epic match with the towering Ian Drago.
In the movie Duke says: "He's worried! You cut him! You hurt him! You see? You see? He's not a machine, he's a man!"
The colourful piano player told the magazine that this moving scene inspires her to make music to remind the music industry that it is human.
She said: "I know it sounds crazy, but I was thinking about the machine of the music industry. I started to think about how I have to make the music industry bleed."
Currently wrapping up the final dates of her Monster Ball Tour, the singer also revealed that she feels most alive when she performs on stage.
Gaga recently swapped her music instruments for the ink and printing presses of the newspaper industry. Last week she helped guest-edit the Metro newspaper, giving the free-publication a unique Gaga approach to news.
