She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "My favorite part in (Rocky IV) is when Apollo's ex-trainer says to Rocky, 'He is not a machine. He's a man. Cut him, and once he feels his own blood, he will fear you.'

"I know it sounds crazy, but I was thinking about the machine of the music industry. I started to think about how I have to make the music industry bleed to remind it that it's human, it's not a machine."

It's not the first time the Poker Face hitmaker has sung the boxing champ's praises - in a recent U.K. interview with British singer Nicola Roberts, Gaga branded Rocky her "ideal man".

She added, "I never wanted to be the rock star. I wanted to be the girlfriend. I never wanted to be Rocky. I wanted to be (his girlfriend) Adrian."
