Pop star Lady Gaga is convinced she's destined to a life of loneliness because her suitors quickly grow jealous of her mega success.
The Bad Romance hitmaker, who has recently been linked to The Vampire Diaries actor Taylor Kinney, hasn't had much luck with love and Gaga feels certain her talent and creativity are to blame for her problems.
She tells Vanity Fair, "I have this effect on people where it starts out good... the attraction is initially there and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me.... I have an inability to know what happiness feels like with a man.
"I think what it really is, is that I date creative people and I think that what intimidates them is not my purse, it's my mind... ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a whose-d**k-is-bigger contest. If I go to the piano and write a quick song and play it back, they are angry with how fast and effortless it is. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s who I am, and I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t apologize for it."
But Gaga isn't too concerned about her relationship failures - she'll always have a love affair with her fans.
She adds, "I only know the happiness of putting a smile on someone' s face from the stage."
