Lady Gaga: 'Make-up helps women bond'

Lady Gaga thinks make-up can help women bond.

The 'Marry The Night' singer - who has recently unveiled her first fragrance - believes women should all look at themselves in a mirror and be happy to change their image if they see something they don't like, rather than berating themselves for it.

She said: "Sit in front of the mirror with all the paints and colours and wigs that you have at your disposal and just have a real talk with yourself, 'What do I not like about me?'

"And then, peer into the mirror and just draw right over it because that's what make-up is here for. We're not all perfect - it's meant to be fun so we can bond as women and say, 'You know what? We don't all feel perfect, but did you try that lipstick? It's divine!' "

She also believes Adele has set a new agenda when it comes to body image.

Lady Gaga added to Stylist: "Quite honestly, I did gain 30 pounds. Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it?

"She's so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of women."
