"I need fashion for my music and I need music for my fashion," says Lady Gaga in this SHOWStudio interview.

"I think there are two different kinds of artists—those people who need to be plugged into a cultural movement in music or a movement in fashion or a movement in the latest fishing techniques, but I think for some of us, and I would perhaps say the same about my very good friend Nick Knight who I love so much. For some of us, it's a much more innate gift, it's a much more spiritual experience. We don't necessarily have to be plugged into a particular movement in order to be a part of it. It's transcendent. It's an inspiration that we're born with."
