Lady Gaga declared she is entering a media blackout phase last night in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. "Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time," she said in a pre-taped conversation filmed for Oprah's Next Chapter: Lady Gaga, a special that aired on the talk show mogul's OWN network.

"The latest thing I do is I don't read a damn thing," Gaga said about drastically limiting her media diet. "No press, no television. If my mom calls and says, 'Did you hear about?' I don't want to know nothing about anything that is going on in relation to music. I shut it all off."

The singer, who is about to embark on an extended world tour in support of her album Born This Way in late April, also told Winfrey that she hopes to eventually settle down and become a mother. "I want kids, I want a soccer team," she said. "And I want a husband. Well, I'm being superfluous. I don't want to have one kid. I want to have a few."
