Bisexual pop singer Lady Gaga has opened up about her past romantic experiences with girls, saying she is attracted to lesbians because “they are way more daring than straight guys.”

In an interview on the US late night talk show ‘Watch What Happens,’ Lady Gaga addressed a fan question asking which woman she would date if given the opportunity.

Gaga, who has who has long campaigned for LGBT rights in the US, responded: “Well, I’ve taken a few dips in the lady pond. I like girls. I’ve said that. I know people think I just say things to be shocking, but I actually do like pussy. It just depends on whose pussy it is.

“For me, it’s similar to how I feel about guys. It’s more of an energy thing. I used to go to lesbian clubs all the time. I like them because I find lesbians to be way more daring than straight men, when it comes to coming on to you.

“And I really like that. And it wasn’t until I found a guy that could come onto me as strong as a lesbian that I fell in love.”

The 26-year-old has been dating American actor Taylor Kinney since 2011.

She also discussed her previous job as a stripper, which helped her make the money she needed to start her music career.

She said: “I used to be one in New York on the Lower East Side. I made more money stripping than waitressing. I didn’t show too much – I was a burlesque dancer.

“Because my family’s European, for me it wasn’t that weird and I didn’t do anything super seedy – although my dad didn’t think so.”

Last year, Lady Gaga faced legal issues with the authorities in Russia after allegedly promoting LGBT rights to minors during a concert in St Petersburg.

Recently, she said: “The Russian Government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom.”
