She also appeared on The Howard Stern Show for a nearly two-hour interview where talked at length about her feud with Perez Hilton:
"What happened was we were doing an interview -- I took two days out of my schedule when I was on a world tour to do an interview for him ... and in the middle of the interview he started asking me really terrible questions and he was being very negative about 'Born This Way' and we had had a lot to drink. He was supposed to be my friend and I felt betrayed, so I started crying. And then my friend had to come in and pull the camera out, they wouldn't turn the cameras off...And then he apologized, but I sort of felt like it was like, 'But I'm Perez Hilton so I'm allowed to treat you this way.' I looked at him and said, 'Just because you are who you are, does not mean that our friendship doesn't mean anything when the cameras turn on. So, now I see who you really are.' And I was done after that. And he's just mad that I don't want to hang out anymore because I don't want to be around fake people. I really believed, when I first met him, that he wanted to change. I really believed that he wanted to bully people less on his site and that he wanted to move into a more positive space. I was really there for him and I really supported him."
She said the feud was rooted in Madonna:
That's sort of the center of it and no one has really said that or admitted to it. It's silly...There's always this pissing match: Did she take her torch, you know, is she the new her? Is she going to outlast her or not? And there's this thing with some people that I'm a 'threat to the throne' and I don't want your ... throne. And no thanks, and I have my own. And I don't actually want a throne at all because I don't view myself as a queen. I view myself as one of my fans and that's it."
On her marijuana addiction:
"It seems that young people think that you can’t be addicted to it, but you can. And I couldn’t live without it. I mean, I would wake up at five in the morning, smoke, go back to sleep."
