Lady Gaga has attacked critics who say she is manufactured, telling NME they can "fuck off".

In an interview you can read in full in this week's magazine, available to buy online now (April 19) and in shops nationwide, the singer spoke out about people who wrongly assume she employs songwriters to pen her hits.

"If you want me to be a manufactured act, you can fuck off, " she stated about the accusations.

Elsewhere in the interview, Lady Gaga compared herself to John Lennon by saying that she struggles to ever be completely happy with her songs.

"I am perpetually unhappy with what I create," she said. "Even though I might tell you that 'Edge Of Glory' is a pop masterpiece, when it's all said and finished there will be things I dread, and every time I listen to it I'll hear them."

Gaga added: "In John Lennon's [1980] Playboy interview he talked about how he hated certain songs because of the way they were finished. And they might be my favourite songs, but Lennon couldn't listen to them."
