In a new Vanity Fair interview, Lady Gaga opens up about her past relationships, why men tend to leave her (and then come back with marriage proposals), and how she's fully capable of buying herself a diamond if she wants one, thank you very much. 

According to Gaga, 25, the trouble always starts when her partners get jealous of her artistic abilities. 

"I have this effect on people where it starts out good. Then, when I'm in these relationships with people who are also creative, or creative in their own way, what happens is the attraction is initially there and it's all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me," she says.

"If I go to the piano and write a quick song and play it back, they are angry with how fast and effortless it is. That's who I am, and I don't apologize for it," she explains. "I think what it really is, is that I date creative people. And I think that what intimidates them is not my purse; it's my mind."
