Lady Gaga reveals all in her new book, "LADY GAGA x TERRY RICHARDSON" – shot by the famed photographer over the last year – and the singer also opened up about what it takes to land the Mama Monster herself.
"Talent and perseverance and pushing the boundaries of love and acceptance," the 25-year-old music sensation told Access Hollywood guest correspondent Jill Martin.

Gaga, never afraid to raise an eyebrow or two, also shared another quality she looks for in a guy.
"I don't know. I can't really say. It ranges from a really big [expletive] to a degree at Harvard," she continued. "Just about anything."
The "You And I" singer also spoke about her hesitation to putting down roots.
"I'm not ready to buy a house. It feels like marriage or something. It's like such a commitment. I don't like it," Gaga, who has been touring almost nonstop for the last two years, explained.
When not globetrotting, the Grammy winner stays with her family or at her best friend's place.
"I do love being with my parents, but I also just really fear domestication. I just don't have a home," she continued. "I actually sleep [at] my best friend Bo's, in her apartment a lot. She kicks her boyfriend onto the couch and it's really funny. We stay up and watch movies."
Gaga's new book – which hit stores this week – gives fans unparalleled access to her life from the last year.
"This is me in my most completely vulnerable state. Terry was with me during breakups, during get-togethers, during party times, sad times, landmark moments in my career," she explained. "When I wake up in the morning, going to sleep… he was there during these completely unadulterated, unmanufactured, completely authentic moments."
Adding, "For those of you that ask me, 'What do you look like in the morning?' 'What do you do when you get milk?' 'What do you look like at the grocery store?' You're going to get all of those answers in this book, because he doesn't believe in farce."
In addition to her new book, the singer will also appear on "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving," which airs Thursday at 9:30 PM on ABC. Plus, catch more of Jill Martin's interview with the chart-topping star on Access Hollywood tonight.
