Lady Gaga Health Issues: Rumor or Reality?

She wouldn't be Gaga if she didn't keep us guessing.

"Glee" is (literally) singing her praises, fans are fearful for her health, and meanwhile, Lady Gaga's gallivanting around the world in lingerie, gabbing about what may or may not be between her legs and why she's prone to passing out, raising more questions in the heads of those attempting the decipher just who this pint-sized pop culture phenom is.

Below, breaks down what's real and what's merely a rumor when it comes to all things Gaga.

Lady Gaga Opens Up About Her Health

Lady Gaga's got health problems: RUMOR. Well, according to her.

Gaga told the Times of London that even though she fainted on stage at a New Zealand concert, seems too skinny for her own good, and occasionally has "heart palpitations and ... things," she's perfectly fine. "A little MDMA [Ecstasy] once in a while never killed anybody, but I really don't do drugs," she said. "I don't touch cocaine any more. I don't smoke. Well, maybe a single cigarette -- with whisky -- while I'm working, because it just frees my mind a little bit. But I care about my voice. The thrill of my voice being healthy on stage is really special. I take care of myself."

But Gaga admitted she recently got tested for lupus, the connective-tissue disease whose symptoms include those pesky heart palpitations she mentioned, as well as shortness of breath. "In Tokyo, I was having trouble breathing," Gaga said. "I had a little oxygen, then I went on stage. I was OK. But like I say, I don't want anyone to worry."

Maybe Gaga wants fans to forget the hype around her health for now, but if she keeps up her hectic schedule, she could turn this rumor into a reality.

Lady Gaga wants you to think she has a penis: REALITY. It's best to let Gaga explain this one herself:

"I love the rumor that I have a penis. I'm fascinated by it," she said recently on French TV. "In fact, it makes me love my fans even more that this rumor is in the world because 17,000 of them come to an arena every night and they don't care if I'm a man, a woman, a hermaphrodite, gay, straight, transgendered, or transsexual. They don't care! They are there for the music and the freedom."

Lady Gaga amputated one of her legs: RUMOR. Sure, she strives for originality, but rocking a peg leg for fashion's sake isn't exactly Gaga's style.

In April, A Pakistan News reported that Gaga revealed her amputation "whilst hopping around" MTV's studio: "This is the latest fashion I'm starting and you can see that I'm a world leader when it comes to wacky and weird s**t," the website A Pakistan News quoted Gaga as saying. "Next month after I recover from the surgery I hope to have the other leg amputated or maybe my arm, hmm ... which one should I amputate next?"

A doctored photo of Gaga sporting a wooden leg, supposedly taken from the video set for her latest single "Alejandro," helped fuel the frenzy to determine if she really went under the knife. But her publicist confirmed only the story had no legs: "It's not true," he said in a statement to E! News.

Lady Gaga doesn't think pop stars should eat: REALITY. Indeed, in 2009, Gaga spelled it out to New York Magazine: "Pop stars should not eat." Considering her recent spate of passing out on stage during performances, the 5-foot-2, 100 pound sensation might want to rethink her mantra.

Lady Gaga is a hermaphrodite: RUMOR. While she loves the penis rumor, Gaga is not, in fact, packing that set of equipment.

This tale worked its way around the Web in August of 2009, after an up-skirt photo taken from video shot at England's Glastonbury festival revealed a bulge between Gaga's legs. claimed that Gaga said, "It's not something that I'm ashamed of, just isn't something that I go around telling everyone. Yes. I have both male and female genitalia, but I consider myself a female. It's just a little bit of a penis and really doesn't interfere much with my life." ran the report by Gaga's manager. His reply: "This is completely ridiculous." Gaga further hacked at the hermaphrodite rumor with her "Telephone" video, shimmying around a jail cell in a barely-there thong and prompting one prison guard to whisper to another, "I told you she didn't have a d**k."

Lady Gaga is bisexual: REALITY. Fans surmised as much from her music videos, in which she gyrates against fine looking specimens of both genders, but for those still wondering, Gaga cleared up any confusion about her sexuality in 2009.

"I do like women ... I've certainly had sexual relationships with women," she told ABC's Barbara Walters. Gaga added that "Poker Face" reflects her fancy for females: "That's really what the song was all about -- why, when I was with my boyfriend, was I fantasizing about women?"
