"I've tried a lot of things but there is something about acting that has really helped," she said to the Sun. "I'm a Stefani-Gaga hybrid and I want you to know the real me."

"On my first day I threw up on the way in a bag in my Rolls-Royce. I don't know why I thought that was funny but it is funny. So after I threw up in the bag I saved it and brought it [to the set]."

Oh, Gaga. Never change.
