(Newser) – Lady Gaga covers Vogue's famous September issue—and this year, the annual edition that covers fall fashion clocks in at a record-breaking 916 pages. (The previous record holder, at 840 pages, weighed almost five pounds, AFP reports.) Some have noticed Gaga's dress and hair seem to be inspired by a certain other fashion icon, the Los Angeles Times notes. Gaga herself tweeted, "Who else sees me channeling @RuPaul on the COVER of VOGUE. If only I was as fierce as you." Highlights from the cover story, courtesy of Access Hollywood:

  • On her down time: "I still find time to have sex at night on the beach when no one’s around. Or roll into a bar and get f***ed up and dance with my top off. It’s just that no one ever sees that."
  • On boyfriend Taylor Kinney: "[I want to] make records and party and screw around and wear fake Chanel. I’m not looking to] settle down and live in a house yet or anything. I just want to keep riding this rainbow."
