Lady Gaga Fears She's Destined to Stay Single

"I have an inability to know what happiness feels like with a man," the Grammy winner, 25, tells the new issue of Vanity Fair. "I think what it really is, is that I date creative people. And I think that's what intimidates them is not my purse, it's my mind."
Gaga's words might come as a shock to her rumored boyfriend, Taylor Kinney of The Vampire Diaries. But Gaga – born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – herself admits she has failed relationships down to a science.
"It starts out good," she says. "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 adds, "It's a hideous place to be in when someone that you love has convinced you that you will never be good enough for anyone.”
Still, even if she is destined to be single, Gaga says she can always turn to her first love – her fans.
"When I fight with someone I'm in a relationship with, I think: What would my fans think if they knew this was happening?" she admits. "How would they feel about my work and about me as a female if they knew I was allowing this to go on? And then I get out [of the relationship]."
Not that she's completely without those who adore her. Says Gaga, "I only know the happiness of putting a smile on someone' s face from the stage."
