Lady Gaga credits boyfriend Taylor Kinney with helping her find love.
The Do What You Want hitmaker, who has been dating the Chicago Fire actor since 2011 when they met on the set of her You and I video, told Fashion Magazine it had been a difficult journey to find "the one".
"When you meet someone that's not intimidated by the amazing people that are around you [or] by the love that you receive-that's love," the Grammy winner said.
"Men weren't always happy for me. It was very challenging to watch a woman be so successful."
It seems Kinney is also not fussed by Gaga's outlandish outfits, having been spotted out and about with the 27-year-old as she frocked up in various daring ensembles.
Gaga, who is the face of Versace, revealed she sees fashion as a savoir from being sad.
"I've always cared about my costumes and my clothes," she said.
"When I leave my apartment I like to look pretty for my fans but not [in a] hot sexy girl [way]-I don't care about that, I just want to make you feel something with what I wear. I want you to feel happy and enjoy the theatre of my life the way that I do."
