Lady Gaga On Suicidal Thoughts: “I Gave Up On Myself, I Hated Being A Star”

Published: Sunday 20th Sep 2020 by Sam

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…

Powerful piece.

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.

The interview comes just days after Gaga unleashed the video for latest single ‘911.’ Click here to watch.

    I’m sick of her always using the poor me narrative. Why does she get a pass on this but Taylor Swift doesn’t??

    I applaud her bravery for being transparent. 🙂 You know when an artist is great while during any interview the music shines so bright! Loving this new era. 🙂

    Even the greatest of the greats….either through their music or in interviews….have all renounced their stardom in some form, wanted out of Los Angeles (or Hollywood) and wished for a normal life at some point in their careers. This started for me with the artists (and actors) of the 1980’s. I don’t think I need to make a long list of legends. 🙂 The message is obviously clear but people still want to taste it (FAME) for themselves. We can’t say we weren’t warned at this point. “The price of fame” is real.

    Then why are you back?

      Loool no way she is telling the truth.

      She lives for attention, she would be depressed if she wasn’t a star anymore.

      I can’t stand this fake h**

        “I live for the applause!”

    Quit all the satanic sht and she’ll be ok.

    Her dark phase was definitely during her ArtPop era when she replaced half of the team that made her a big name on The Fame and Born This Way Some fans believe she received a lot of cyberbullying and pressure during the BTW phase about being a “Madonna” rip-off. Her Joanna was good I’ll give her that not the Gaga people wanted but it at least gave the world a chance to see a more personal Stefanie side to her and she ended starring in Ryan Murphy’s movie A Star Is Born. Now she’s back and better than ever with Chromatic giving us color and powerful vibrant Gaga at the same time!
