Lady Gaga is opening up about the darkness that almost took her life.
Siting down with CBS Sunday Morning, the megastar revealed that – in the years preceding new album ‘Chromatica’ – she had grown disillusioned with the fame monster her success had created.
Rather than a frustration with others, her angst was directed inwards – bemoaning how, even in her private life, the “Lady Gaga” celebrity had become the center of everything.
According to the ‘911’ singer, matter got so bad that she considered ending her life.
And while she’s doing better, she’s sharing a story that ultimately may help many more.
Watch the insightful sit-down after the jump…
Sure, it’s unlikely to move those who scoff at celebs who bemoan their celebrity. But this was articulated so well. Both on Gaga’s end and that of the interviewer (who didn’t shy away from posing the fair question of why she’s continuing her career if it’s all so bad).
It made for an intriguing journey into one of modern Pop’s most rivetting minds and adds an interesting layer to the creative process of one of her strongest bodies of work yet.
