There's no denying that Lady Gaga has a blast shocking us all with her eccentric style. Not only does she push the bar to what can be considered fashion, but she's always trying something new and bold. In a recent interview with Yahoo! Style, the singer shared her style influences and the deep obsession she has over fashion.

"I don't wear fashion, I am fashion," Lady Gaga said. "I don't mean that to sound arrogant or rude or anything like that but you know when you just love something so much it just hurts. Like when the topstitching is just perfect. The beading is exquisite. It's like a love affair. Those clothes are so special. I have another relationship with fashion that goes beyond just wearing clothes."

Gaga, who said she keeps all of her outfits in a giant 40,000-square-foot warehouse in Los Angeles, is not one to follow trends and says her looks depend on her mood. Whether it's the messy, "erratic," and "shape shifting" ARTPOP album days or the elegant jazzy woman that's arisen from her latest album with jazz icon Tony Bennett, Gaga isn't afraid to reinvent herself at every turn.

"I feel like I carry the spirit of many fashionistas that came before me. I feel a very strong kinship to them. The history of art and the history of fashion are very important to me," she explained. "My fashion is something that people are going to pay attention to. They are going to talk about it. I feel very deeply for Isabella Blow. For Alexander McQueen. His fearlessness is something that I think about a lot. With this album, I am channeling his rebelliousness. Because if you think about it, jazz is the most rebellious form of music. It's totally different from my previous message where there was an intention behind each look. Jazz brings out the fighter in me. The type of clothes that I've been wearing is less form fitting. Other days, I'll wear something more corseted and glamorous. Right now I'm wearing a leather jacket that my sister made me with Cheek to Cheek painted on the back and piercings and bleached brows."
