When Lady Gaga teamed up with Cher to record a duet for the music legend’s upcoming album, it was a match made in music — and fashion — heaven.

And in a recent interview with PEOPLE in which she answered questions from readers, Lady Gaga revealed she considered Cher a style icon while she was growing up. Her favorite ensemble? The leather jacket and leotard combo from the singer’s “If I Could Turn Back Time” video.

“I dress like that!” says Lady Gaga. “That’s my everyday look. Maybe just sort of subliminally when I was younger, without even realizing it, one day I knew that was the kind of woman I would become.”

PEOPLE readers had other style questions, as well. You asked, Gaga answered:

Is it true you and your sister are creating a fashion line?
–Jeremy Miguel, Riverside, Calif.

No, we’re not creating one together, but she’s working on her own work and she’s really incredibly talented and I’m so proud of her.

With a wardrobe as wild and wacky as yours, is there anything that you wouldn’t wear?
–Lidia A.N., Barcelona

There are so many things I wouldn’t wear! I’m really just anyone else when I get dressed. I just have a particular style and things that I like. I have these Norma Kamali black jersey pants that I wear for rehearsal and things. I’m not prejudiced against sweatpants. My form of sweatpants is just a bra and panties. Everyone’s asked me that, like I have some vendetta. Wear what you like, be who you are.

What do you keep in your purse at all times?
–Dexter Peters, Riverton, Manitoba

I borrowed my friend’s the other day, and when she got it back, it had a red Ruby Woo lipstick, fake fingernails, a light-up unicorn and perfume. And she said, “Only you would leave that!”

For more of Gaga’s answers to reader questions, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

Lady Gaga is such a pretty woman, I like when she dresses in regular clothes and not meat dresses or mask etc. I do know that is a part of her act and who she is.. JMO

Lady GagGag needs to stop with the costumes. She has proven herself as a very talented performer and she is very pretty without the outlandish get-ups. Please stop and be yourself – people will pay more attention! The shenanigans are history….

Lady GaGa is a little srtange but I don’t mind the outfits. She’s an adult and lives in s free country. She has a lovely voice and I actually look forward to what her next outfit will be.

Kerri on

I just love her “be who you are” message. Who cares what others think. More power to you, Gaga!

she is so homely i can see why she dresses so over the top…

FolkToe on

Without the costumes she would just be the second coming of Christina Aguilera. Talented, but boring.
