Famous Singer Lady Gaga Revealed in “Sunday Morning” show that after getting fame and name she feels suicidal every day. On Sunday Morning Show by CBS the singer was there to discuss the pitfalls she gets in the recent years after she released her famous record “Joanne” and did a film “A Star Is Born.” How we can forget her record and Film both being praised and won awards and nominations.
For Lady Gaga the initial success was felt like a weight on her as she said that she can’t freely roam in the city, can’t go to the favourite restaurant with the family to have dinner. It was not always overwhelming to be surrounding by papz and Fans. She confessed that “I totally gave up on myself. I hated being famous. I hated being a star. I felt exhausted and used up.”
Recalling an incident she said that when she looked at the piano She used to say “You ruined my life. … You made me Lady Gaga. My biggest enemy is Lady Gaga.”
Among all other challenges she was facing one of them was recording “Joanne.” She said “I was writing about the trauma from my father’s life that became my trauma in a lot of ways. And I thought I could fix my dad.”
But she admitted that she “could never fix that.” How strange it is the album which was being praised by all and had success, the singer and composer behind it was struggling and finding mental peace.
She further explained that “It’s not always easy, if you have mental issues, to let other people see. I used to self-harm. I used to say, ‘Look. I cut myself. See, I’m hurt,’ because I didn’t think anyone could see because, mental health, it’s invisible.”
Having mental issues always led to think how negative is your life and it is better to end than to continue it.
Explaning why she felt that her career is over, Gaga said “I didn’t really understand why I should live other than to be there for my family. That was an actual real thought and feeling: ‘Why should I stick around?'”
When the singer asked about whether she ever felt suicidal, she replied “Oh yeah. Every day.” She also added that she had some people around her watching her for a couple of years to make sure she is safe.
The singer further added that she added her struggles in her latest album “Chromatica” including songs like ‘Rain on Me’, ‘911’, ‘1000 Doves.’
She added that “I swear on my future unborn children, I don’t know why, but I have to [keep making music]. I have to do it. Singing, I have to. Turns out, even if I don’t wanna be alive, I still know how to write a song.”
She further added that “It’s that cheesy thing that you say, ‘Oh, I’m glad I went through it because it made me stronger.’ OK, I could have done without the last two-and-a-half years of my life. I could have done without that. But you know what? It happened.”
