Lady Gaga says it's "not easy" to "hit the mark" with fashion.
The 'Born This Way' singer makes headlines with her outlandish outfits - including a dress made from meat - but revealed her daring ensembles take "poise and precision"
She said: "What people don't always really know about me. (They think) I'm always putting things on to be provocative or shocking for the sake of it. But actually, it's not that easy to wear all of those things and to do it with poise and precision and to hit your mark every time."
And the 'Poker Face' hitmaker - who joined the cast of Fox series 'American Horror Story: Hotel' - is grateful she's not had to compromise her style which she considers her "art" to be in the show.
Gaga explained: "My manager, Bobby Campbell, just said to me, 'You're like a contortionist. You just stand there for hours in pain in those outfits and you have no clue when you're on stage and you get off and it just all hits you.' And he's right. That's exactly what happens. It's what I do. That's my art.
Speaking to E!, she added: "So ('American Horror Story') is actually really stretching me in a great way. It's like I have to take the things that I'm good at and make them even better, and keep them the same every time but still loose so that Ryan (Murphy, executive producer) gets something really truly organic from me."
