The “Applause" singer admitted during a radio interview on Sirius XM's The Morning Mash Up that she's submissive to boyfriend Taylor Kinney.
This seems in complete conflict with her work persona, where Gaga is reported to be in “complete control on stage and on camera.” But she confirms:
I’m in charge all day long, the last thing I want to do is tell him what to do. I mean, when I am home, I am like, shoes are off, I'm making him dinner.
Gaga doesn’t seem like that type of woman that would bow down to anyone, especially a man, but she adds:
It's not good for relationships to tell men what to do.
This sentiment is repeated to me daily by men who struggle under a “bossy wife syndrome.” Does this mean Gaga would submit to these men?
Probably not. My research confirms that the stronger a woman is, the stronger she requires her partner to be. I don’t have the inside track on Gaga’s relationship but it’s easy to make a few fair assumptions.
1. Kinney is a Protector, emotionally and otherwise. Says Gaga:
We complement each other’s weirdness. And you know, at the end of the day he's my best friend.
2. Kinney is a Provider. Whether he makes less than Gaga is immaterial, because she recognizes his ability to provide:
He has a job, too, and he is really busy!
3. Kinney is a Presider. Says Gaga:
He's totally in charge.
This is just another example of the increasing number of strong women who value the security offered by a Sigma Male, a man who Protects, Provides, and Presides. If your wife isn’t treating you the way Lady Gaga treats Taylor Kinney, then maybe it’s time to examine which of the Sigma Roles you need to strengthen.
