They say success is the greatest revenge, and nobody seems to know that better than Lady Gaga. The musical phenomenon tells the new issue of Cosmopolitan how she's reveling in her fame -- and how an ex-flame told her she'd never amount to anything.
"I had a boyfriend who told me I'd never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I'd fail," Gaga, 23, said. "I said to him, 'Someday, when we're not together, you won't be able to order a cup of coffee at the f***ing deli without hearing or seeing me.'"
Even more surprising than her sudden catapult to pop star fame, is the look she's sporting on the pages of Cosmo. Known for some of the wildest get-ups, the "Bad Romance" singer is actually dressed in "normal" clothes, donning lingerie on the cover and a black dress on the inside spread.
It goes to show that just when we think we've got Gaga pegged, she'll always be able to pull off the element of surprise.
