Slowly? Nothing slowly about it your ladyship! You're barking mad!

Her Gaga-ness says “I'm already crazy…I'm a fearless person. I think it creeps up on you. I don't think it can be stopped. If my destiny is to lose my mind because of fame, then that’s my destiny."

Her belief is that she has no power to stop this. She sees her fame like “rocket fuel” which is spurring her on to do more and more. “My passion is so strong I can't sleep, sometimes for days,” she said.

Mind you, this 24-year-old pop starlet treats every public appearance like a new art installation and she's hardly likely to let a little insanity get in her way.
