Lady Gaga reveals she sometimes feels ‘lonely’ and ‘uncertain’ in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times.
Just because a celebrity is apparently at the top of the world does not mean that they don’t experience moments of doubt, just like everyone else.
Lady Gaga sat down for an interview recently to discuss her role in Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, “A Star Is Born,” where she candidly about the uncertainties that plague her.
“It is very lonely being a performer,” she tells the Los Angeles Times. “There is a certain loneliness that I feel, anyway—that I am the only one who does what I do. So, it feels like no one understands. And the urge to use it is because you are looking for a way to suppress the pain. When I started to run around the country doing clubs, there was things everywhere, but I had already partied when I was younger, so I didn’t dabble. I was able to avoid it, because I did it when I was a child.”

This introspection was caused by the ever-Ally, a struggling singer who finds the guidance of well-established musician Jackson Maine (played by Cooper) in the upcoming movie. According to Gaga, Cooper wanted raw vulnerability of her to capture the essence of an artist struggling to continue to perform.

Even though she’s a Golden Globe-winning actress for her role in “American Horror Story: Hotel,” she was asked to a screen test for a part because people “don’t really know what I look like,” she explained. When she arrived for the audition, she was wearing makeup, which Cooper asked her to remove it.
“It put me right in the place where I had to go, because if my character talks about how ugly she feels—that was real,” she states. “I’m so insecure. I love to preach, but I don’t always practice what I preach.”
Although the parallels between her and her character are numerous, Gaga clarified that Ally’s despair early in the film, has never how they internalized the low points in her life.
Lady Gaga Remains the Proportion of the Distorted Images of Themselves
“When we meet Ally, she is herself. And that is very different than I am. I was not overwhelmed by the opportunities. The truth is, if we were not sitting here today and I had not sold as many records as I have, I would still be in a bar somewhere playing the piano and singing. It’s just who I want to be,” she says.
“I was dragging my piano from dive bar to dive bar to play music. I was calling people, as though my own manager performances. I really believed in myself that I could do that and that I was not going to stop until I made it.”
The 32-year-old singer recently flew to Europe before the premiere of “A Star Is Born” at the 75th Venice Film Festival. And on Thursday, the Mother Monster made quite the arrival in Italy’s Floating City, ride in a water taxi, while wearing a black 80’s inspired dress with a high split. She completed the look by wearing her blonde locks pulled into a stylish pin curls for the luxury event.
Never shy away from making a statement, Gaga has also shared a number of risqué photos in the last days of photographer and frequent Kanye West collaborator, Eli Russell Linnetz. In some images, her familiar face and figure are warped into eerie shapes. In others, she poses completely naked. However, at this point, it’s anyone’s guess what she’s promoting, if anything.
“A Star Is Born” is in the cinema, on Oct. 5.
