Lady Gaga Talks About Tumultuous Year: "I Became Very Depressed At The End Of 2013"

Feb 5, 2014 12:38 PM



From disappointing sales of her highly anticipated album ARTPOP to her controversial duet with R. Kelly and her split with her longtime manager Troy Carter, Lady Gaga had quite the 2013. The mercurial songstress recently opened up to Harper's Bazaar about her tumultuous year for their March 2014 issue.

On the biggest thing she’s learned:

    “I became very depressed at the end of 2013. I was exhausted fighting people off. I couldn’t even feel my own heartbeat. I was angry, cynical, and had this deep sadness like an anchor dragging everywhere I go. I just didn’t feel like fighting anymore. I didn’t feel like standing up for myself one more time—to one more person who lied to me. But January 1, I woke up, started crying again, and I looked in the mirror and said, ‘I know you don’t want to fight. I know you think you can’t, but you’ve done this before. I know it hurts, but you won’t survive this depression.’…I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You just have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that’s left. I’m lucky I found one little glimmer stored away.”

On how she’s changed throughout the years:

    “I am better with food. I don’t have an eating disorder anymore. I’m also better at not letting people take advantage of me. Five years ago, when I spotted someone with a hidden agenda, I allowed them to stay around me. I didn’t want to believe it. I thought if I ignored it, then they would eventually see me again—that I’m a human being and not a doll. But it doesn’t work that way. I speak up now. I realized that it’s my own fault that people take advantage. I should be around people who cherish my talents, my health, my time. I’m not a pawn for anyone’s future business. I’m an artist. I deserve better than to be loyal to people who only believe in me because I make money.”

On talking to her mother about what sounds like her split with manager Troy Carter:

    "I went through a rough time last year. I felt very taken advantage of by people I trusted. I asked my mother, "I work so hard. I never stop. I never say no. Why doesn't this person love me, Mom? Why was this person willing to hurt me to help themselves? Why wasn't I enough? Why is money more important than me? She reminded me to forgive others for not seeing God where I see it. I see God in my fans. She said, "You're hurt because you don't operate this way. You are fiercely protective of your inventions because you are your fans." She helped me understand my own feelings. When someone has pulled the wool over my eyes, I feel that they have pulled the wool over the eyes of millions of fans around the world. She helped me to forgive. You can't force people to have the same world consciousness and awareness as you do."

The March issue of Harper's Bazaar hits newsstands on February 18.

Lady Gaga Visits Britney Spears In Las Vegas

Feb 3, 2014 09:12 AM


It looks like blondes do have more fun! Lady Gaga visited Britney Spears in concert on Saturday night during her residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino -- and it looks like the popstars had a blast together.

Wearing a sweater minidress, Gaga tweeted a pic of herself and Britney, who was outfitted in a crystal jumpsut, and wrote, "Me and Brit Brit <3 #Applause4Britney @britneyspears we had so much fun at your show!"

We've heard rumors that Gaga and BritBrit were in talks of doing a collaboration -- and this almost seems like an unofficial confirmation! We couldn't be more excited!

The "Applause" singer, who joined Brit’s manager Larry Rudolph, was spotted singing along, dancing around and even blowing kisses to the "Toxic" singer while seated in the VIP section of the Vegas show.

It sounds like Gaga had a grand ole time because Mother Monster couldn't stop gushing about her new BFF, even writing, "She looked so gorgeous, the show was so much fun, and her dad gave us THE BEST BBQ. It was a #MonsterParty!"

Sounds like an all around delicious night to us!

Lady Gaga certainly knows how to her fans on their toes! Rocking a platinum wig with blunt bangs, the 27-year-old popstar doesn't disappoint in her new promo for O2 Priority.

The 60-second clip kicks off with a huge explosion in a warehouse as Mother Monster hatches from a gigantic silver ball as her song, "Applause", pulsates in the background. Gaga then struts her stuff through the warehouse wearing a glittering, '80s-style tuxedo jacket and signature sky-high boots. The "Do What U Want" singer then appears to be running -- a feat only Gaga could manage in those boots!

The ad is for priority tickets for Gaga's concert at London's O2 Arena on Oct. 23, 2014. Tickets go on sale to the general public on February 8.

Lady Gaga Is A Goth Goddess At Versace Fashion Show

Donatella Versace Lady Gaga paris france fashion Atelier Versace

We're kinda loving this look!

Lady Gaga attended the Atelier Versace fashion show yesterday for Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2014, and the singer looked like a cross between Elvira and Donatella V!

Maybe this is why Gagaloo was chosen as the face of the spring 2014 Versace campaign?

The pop singer is known for her crazy ensembles, but she's been ditching the teacup hats and meat dresses for a more sophisticated image lately and we're big fans of the transformation!

Leave the costumes to the stage and embrace the couture, Mother Monster!

Lady Gaga And Christina Aguilera Sing "Do What U Want" Duet On The Voice Finale

Dec 18, 2013 09:20 AM

What feud?!

Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera put their differences aside to perform a duet to "Do What U Want" on The Voice season finale last night, and we love how the divas wore matching gold outfits as they belted out Mother Monster's latest hit!

    "I was really excited because The Voice called and said they wanted me to perform on the finale, and I obviously can't refuse. Such an amazing show! And I said 'I want to know if Christina wants to do it with me'," the eccentric singer explained to host Carson Daly.

Xtina was flattered by the invitation, and didn't hold back on her praise for Gagaloo!

    "This is the first time we've ever met. When I heard she wanted to collaborate, I said of course! She's such an innovative artist and a risk taker. And as a fellow female, I have so much respect for that. And I just have to say guys, she's the most down-to-earth real person I've met. So I love you girl, and you deserve everything you've earned," the singing coach gushed.

Is hell freezing over?! Next thing we know, Mariah and J.Lo are going to bury the hatchet!

Lady Gaga Dresses Like A Picasso Painting In London

Black Sheep Syndication

Lady Gaga performed at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball in London on Sunday night, and after a wild performance in an outfit that left little to the imagination, the pop star checked out of her hotel on Monday morning and headed to Heathrow Airport.

We're not sure how long it took her to throw together this colorful ensemble, but she nearly missed her flight! She tweeted just before takeoff, "Thank u London for the amazing trip I am late for the airport! Big kisses from me I love u! Xxx."

Gaga is going to be taking it easy over the holidays, but she will be back on the road this spring with her artRave: The ARTPOP Ball Tour, which kicks off in May in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Before her tour officially begins however, Gaga will close out New York's historic Roseland Ballroom, performing the final seven shows at the venue from March 28 to April 7. Way to make history!

Lady Gaga Dresses Up As A Living Doll While In Japan

Dec 2, 2013 12:00 PM


Hello Dolly! Lady Gaga has introduced a new persona to her ever-growing cast of characters -- the life-sized doll! Over the weekend, the 27-year-old singer, who constantly invents new personas, posted a photo of herself made up to look like an anime-inspired doll while in Japan.

Outfitted in a corset, lingerie-style ensemble with images of Botticelli's the Birth of Venus, Mother Monster posed wit her eyes shut, highlighting her wide-eyed Manga make-up job. Not gonna lie -- this is creepy! We almost prefer her wearing blood, gore and meat -- over an animated doll come to life!

While on tour in Japan, the "Do What U Want" singer posted an Instagram video of her in the trippy get up and playing an electric guitar onstage under blue light, with the caption, "Get ready for my next tour. #artRAVE #fashionRavePOPmusic."

We can barely keep up with Gaga's almost manic costume changes in recent weeks -- which seem to be getting switched up daily. From Boticelli costumes to all white ghostly gear and parading around on a faux horse, Gaga's style been all over the place promoting ARTPOP -- so we have no idea what will be next -- let's just hope it's something not so creeptastic!

Lady Gaga Has Showstopping AMA Performance With R. Kelly

Nov 25, 2013 09:30 AM

Lady Gaga definitely knows how to steal the show! After arriving to the 2013 American Music Awards on a fake white horse, Lady Gaga teamed up with R. Kelly to do another sexy and show-stopping rendition of their hit song "Do What U Want" -- and Mother Monster knocked it out of the park.

In the very theatrical act, Gaga, who was dressed like a Rockette version of Marilyn Monroe, plays a White House secretary to R. Kelly's President Kelly. The singing twosome then reenacted an affair that could rival Scandal -- which ended in the affair being discovered and President Kelly throwing Gaga to the wolves. Not cool President Kelly! Not cool!

For the performance, Gaga wore a glittering suit which she turned into a glittering dress which she turned into a glittering leotard and R. Kelly looked like one badass president in a suit jacket and leather pants. It almost looked like the Broadway version of the Monica Lewinski/President Clinton scandal -- and we kind of like it!

For the last minute of the number, Gaga's performance took an interesting turn. Forgoing glitz, glamour and gore -- the singer belted out her song while on top of piano, as a video of herself as a girl playing the piano was shown. Towards the very end of the five-minute performance, tabloid images were projected on to the stage with various disparaging headlines including "Lady Gaga Is Fat" and "Lady Gaga Is Over." Say what you want about Lady G -- but the woman can sing. Hopefully her stunning vocal performances silenced some of her critics -- at least for awhile.

Gaga must have felt good about her performance -- the songstress strutted her stuff in a glittering bodysuit at an AMA after party at the Chateau Marmont. And true to form -- her claws were out!
