Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga: 'I'm Like Perfectionist Lennon'

Pop singer Lady Gaga has likened herself to Beatles legend John Lennon - because she too is "perpetually unhappy" with her finished products.
The Bad Romance hitmaker admits she struggles with such strong bouts of perfectionism she finds it almost impossible to be satisfied with the final outcome of her songs - just like the late Beatles star.
She says, "I am perpetually unhappy with what I create. Even though I might tell you that (song) Edge Of Glory is a pop masterpiece, when it's all said and finished there will be things I dread, and every time I listen to it I'll hear them.
"In John Lennon's (1980) Playboy (magazine) interview he talked about how he hated certain songs because of the way they were finished. And they might be my favourite songs, but Lennon couldn't listen to them."
