Lady Gaga prefers men who can play chess

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Singer Lady Gaga says she would like to date someone who knows their way around a chess board.

"I like to play chess, I think that it's fun," Gaga, who split from her fiance Taylor Kinney earlier this year, told The Sun newspaper, reported femalefirst.co.uk.

The singer's new album "Joanne", which she named in memory of her father's sister who passed away at the age of 19, will be released next month.

"It's going to be done in the next 48 hours.

"(My father) was younger than her and she was very sick with lupus. The death of her in his family and in his life, it really left a scar and a wound that never healed.

"The experiences of our families, and our challenges and our toughness make us who we are. It's all the toughness of the pain that happened as a result of losing her that made us all strong, and made us all who we are."

Gaga said she feels "betrayed" by those closest to her and said there is a lot of personal touch in the album.

"I've been betrayed by all types of people in my life and thought an illusion was put out to bait me in some kind of way. There's a lot of rage on the album. There's going to be a lot of personal things on that record that are written through the lyrics and the music," she said.
