Lady Gaga Says 'Fame Is Not All It's Cracked Up To Be'

Lady Gaga

The singer, who released her latest album "Joanne" last October and is gearing up for the May 2018 release of the Bradley Cooper-directed film "A Star Is Born", had a lot to say in the almost two-hour doc, which was made available for streaming Friday.

It was also apparent from pretty early on that besides having a deep knowledge of art and pop cultural history, Gaga had true musical chops. The only thing that really bothers me about her is that I'm Italian and from NY, so if I got a problem with somebody, I'm gonna f-- tell you to your face.

In the candid message, Gaga - who also opens up about her rocky relationship with Madonna in Five Foot Two - admitted that her professional success continues to be "psychologically challenging".

Madonna sparked up an interesting feud when she called fellow innovator Lady GaGa's music "reductive" in 2012.




I've been saying for years the most interesting thing Lady Gaga could do was ditch the clown suits and reveal the musician underneath, which is effectively what she tried to do with her 2016 album Joanne.

What bothers Gaga most about what she perceives as Madonna's negative opinion of her is that the Material Girl hasn't said anything straight to her.

Her chronic pain is so severe that she can't picture what childbirth will be like, and doesn't know if she can even have a baby. While meeting with a doctor who prescribes trigger point injections and "blood spinning", whatever that is, she has her make up done. Gaga, on the other hand, is only just grappling with the pain. At her niece's christening she can't help but command the camera's attention, whether she means to or not. The vérité-style feature tracks the artist during the recording, release and promotion of her fifth studio cut, Joanne, culminating with her triumphant performance at the Super Bowl half-time show. At its best there are moments of deep sincerity that demonstrate how and why Gaga connects, placing Five Foot Two a class above the recent fleet of antiseptic authorized docs like Beyonce's Life Is But a Dream and Taylor Swift's The 1989 World Tour.

"I'm always at a shoot with some fucking great news, and my love life's imploded", she laments to Maxwell. She cries a lot, she has meltdowns, and she often seems more needy than independent. She said that she hoped the project showed fans that fame is "not all it's cracked up to be". While doing publicity for past records, she was usually glammed up in insane couture, but she wanted to be more stripped down for her new music.
