Lady Gaga is planning a media blackout, according to reports.

A televised interview between Oprah Winfrey and the 'Born This Way' star is set to be broadcast this weekend and, according to WENN, the singer won't talk to the press afterwards as she'll have nothing else to say to them.

Speaking to the TV talk show host for a Next Chapter special, which will air this Sunday (March 18), she said:

Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time… No press, no television, if my mom calls and says, 'Did you hear about it…' I shut it all off.


Gaga also claimed that she refused to pay attention to her negative press, adding: "I don't read a damn thing."

However, last month (February 24) the singer found the time to respond to NME after her 'Born This Way' LP was dubbed the "most pretentious album ever" by NME". She wrote: "Oh the irony of winning "Most Pretentious Album Ever" from none other than NME. *eyeroll* I might laugh forever + then return to narcissism."

Following a burst of activity in the wake of 'Born This Way' in May 2011, Gaga has had a quieter start to 2012, though she recently revealed that songs for the follow-up are "beginning to flourish". She has also continued to be unflinchingly honest in interviews, revealing that she overcame bulimia to save her singing voice.

Last week (March 8), meanwhile, it was reported that the singer was "furious" at plans to make a biopic of her life, as she fears that the forthcoming new flick Fame Monster: The Lady Gaga Story will portray her as "insecure and needy".
