By Annie Reuter

When asked if she sings live, Gaga answered with a resounding “yes” — and said that you shouldn’t expect anything less from other musicians.

“I don’t think it’s cool to lip sync,” she told Extra. “I’m not judging if people do because it’s everybody’s own style of what they decided the type of artist they will be. I think if you pay money for a ticket to see a show that the artist should f***in’ have some pipes and sing their records for you.”

Lady Gaga is back on the road for her tour, artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball after recovering from hip surgery last year. While she doesn’t get much down time these days, she said on her days off she’s just like everybody else.

“I do all sorts of normal things,” she said. “The same as everyone. I go see my family. I go to my dad’s restaurant in New York. I have a puppy, I play with her.”

When asked about her five-year plan, Gaga said all she knows is that music will be a part of it.

“I’ll be making music. More than ever, I’m trying to really truly live in the moment.”
