With Larry King …
Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 15:52
Lady GaGa has admitted that she’s tested ‘borderline positive’ for the disease Lupus in an interview with chatshow host Larry King.
She revealed: “Lupus is in my family and it's genetic, and it's funny 'cause my mother told me the other day that my fans were quite worried about me because I did talk about the fact that I was tested for lupus.
“And the truth is 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 don't have it. But I do have to take good care of myself.”
On the same show the star was asked if she had planned to collaborate with Michael Jackson, before his death.
She admitted: “I guess I can speak about it now. I was actually asked to open for Michael on his tour. We were going to open for him at the O2.
"And we were working on making it happen. And I suppose there was some talk about the openers doing some duets with Michael onstage. But Michael's death was devastating for me regardless of whether I was supposed to go on tour with him
GaGa continue: “He's such an inspiration and remarkable human being. I guess ... some of my fascination with death and the demise of the celebrity goes along with me watching these hugely iconic and amazing people that I have heralded and admired become destroyed, whether self-destroyed or destroyed by the media.”
Earlier today the Paparazzi singer announced a new UK live date for December this year.
