Lady Gaga & Lupus - Larry King Interview
By Eric Munn
Jun 2, 2010
Lady Gaga opened up about her Lupus scare, her family and even became "Larry Gaga" when she appeared on CNN's Larry King Live. The Telephone singer copied the veteran broadcaster’s haircut, braces and tie as she spent the hour talking to the host. The 24-year-old – real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – said that, after her own mother and grandmother, the most important woman to her was Princess Diana.
"I love Princess Diana so much,” she said. “She was an enormous influence on me when I was younger because my mother worshipped her so much. When she died, I'll never forget, my mother was crying. It was this very powerful moment in my childhood watching my mother so connected to someone.”
Gaga, who also said that she was in talks to support Michael Jackson on his This Is It tour before he died, admitted that she is suffering from the potentially terminal disease Lupus.

Gaga told King she tested ‘borderline positive’ for the disease and must be vigilant of her health. “Lupus is in my family, and it is genetic,” she said.
“I don't show any signs, any symptoms of lupus, but I have tested borderline positive for the disease. So as of right now I do not have it but I have to take good care of myself.”
