She may not be a mother yet, but Lady Gaga is already hoping her future children have an important experience.
Now that the mega-star, 33, has released her own makeup brand, Haus Laboratories, she took a second to look back at watching her mom apply makeup. “She would look so, so beautiful, and so strong. She just had such a bravery about her, and it was so inspiring to me,” the singer told Allure of her mom, Cynthia Germanotta. “I grew up with this understanding that you can be brave in many different ways, and one of those ways is makeup. Now, Gaga would like her kids to have that same moment.
“I really hope that when I have maybe a little girl one day, or a little boy, and they see Mommy put her makeup on, that they have the same experience that I did,” the Oscar nominee gushed. It is very clear that makeup is quite important to Gaga. “I never felt beautiful, and I still have days that I don’t feel beautiful,” the A Star Is Born actress revealed. “All of the insecurities that I’ve dealt with my whole life from being bullied when I was younger, they come right back up to bite me. Then I put makeup on, and before I know it I feel this superhero within. It gives me those wings to fly.”
Gaga also hopes her makeup line has a positive impact on the masses. “I would like all gender identities to know very clearly that they are included, and never exploited, ever … I want that little boy at home that might like to be called a girl to say, ‘Mommy, I want to wear Dynasty. It’s a Glam Attack.’ And then Mommy goes, ‘Oh, my son wants to be called a girl, and he wants the Glam Attack.’ And then she goes and she gets it for him. And he uses it. And then there’s a bond,” she said. So great!
“This isn’t the first time that the pop star has opened up about her mom and makeup — she once revealed how the first time she showed her mother her products went down. “I brought her into a room filled with boards, and I said, ‘Mommy, I’ve been working on something, and I want to show it to you.’ She got all choked up, and it was a really special moment,” she recalled. So sweet!
It is so great to hear just how much heart and soul Gaga is pouring into her latest venture.
