“Well, I don’t really know gaga, but Madonna, I had the pleasure of working with her, obviously, and I feel like she’s really changed and reinvented not only herself but pop culture. So what inspired me about Madonna is that she’s able to balance all of this with her family and her personal life. And I told her–I was like, “How do you do this,” you know, with your children there and she’s a great mom. You know, she’s just everything.”
