Lady Gaga Talks About People Dragging Her

Lady Gaga talks about not caring what people think of her new album "Joanne" on new interview:

“Opinions are like assholes; everybody has one,” she says. “Definitely I did not make this album with the opinion of the world being thrust at me constantly through the toilet of the internet. I used the opinions of Mark Ronson and my collaborators – and my own opinion. Because I have to trust my own opinion. Not to sound arrogant, because I truly don’t believe I’m an arrogant person, but after selling 80 million records, you gotta kinda go: ‘OK, why the f**k right now would I throw in the towel and worry what everybody thinks of me?’”


Do you care what people think of you?

It worked for Born This Way? Amazon selling Joanne for 4 dollars.


The minimum amount for an album to count on billboard is $3.49. The rules were put in place after a scandal in 2011 that allowed an album to sell over a million copies, half of them only for selling for 99 cents.

Lady Gaga talks #BLM, her musical past & being incomparable to anyone

Zane Lowe sat down with Gaga a couple weeks ago and posted the full interview today. Here are some highlights:

- Gaga agrees that Joanne as an album is "searching for a good time with some unavoidable truths that need to be dealt with"

- Goes into detail about erasing all of her fame to create the album: "You can't create records resting on your previous success or caring about that. At the end of the day that's not really what I'm here for.

- Talks about what it was like after going through her peak in 2011: "It's a blessing. It's pure adrenaline of the world adoring you. And then you realize it will never be the way it was before." She dealt with paranoia, fear, alcohol, drugs, anxiety, body pain, "a lot of it has to do with feeling unsafe in my own body because I leave the house and there's people touching me, grabbing me, and yelling"

- On Angel Down: "I wrote this song about Trayvon Martin a couple years ago and the epidemic of young black people being murdered in this country. I was overwhelmed at the fact that people just stood around and the justice system continues to not seek justice for these families. Also listening to my fans, young black women and men who are terrified... This is something I care about, this is something that has to stop."

- On being drawn into the #BLM conversation: "I can only pray on that. That my voice & the lyrics will reach people. It's also a complicated thing, I'm not a black woman so how do you speak on certain things... [but] It feels impossible not to say something. How can I possibly make an album about twerking my ass in the club? I can't reckon it. It feels empty, It feels irrelevant... At this moment in my career, I can't possibly just sit and think of 'Oh what would be just fun.' The more that we mask the shade of this anxiety, the harder it's going to be to heal. I cannot write anything that does not have a voice or a purpose in the universe. Why have this voice? Why have this platform?"

Lady Gaga: Madonna and I are very different

Madonna and I are very different, just saying...I wouldn't make that comparison at all. I don't mean to disrespect Madonna. You know, she's a nice lady (lol) and she's had a fantastic huge career, she's the biggest pop star of all time. But (Gaga's voice cracks) I play a lot of instruments, I write all my own music, I spent hours and hours a day in the studio, I'm a producer, I'm a writer. What I do is different.

That's cool, Madonna doesn't play a lot of instruments but she does everything else Gaga stated, and more. Just saying
