Lady GaGa stopped by WKTU's Cubby & Carolina to promote her new single, "Perfect Illusion!" GaGa talked about the pressures of fame, following recent reports that Selena Gomez has taken a break to deal with her health and stress issues.
GaGa said, “I’d say its definite, I mean, serious is broad, you know, term, I mean. There is a lot of really serious things going on in the world. So, its hard to say, you know, “famous”, you know, seriously awful or something when there is something serious things happening that are you know truly terrible in the world. Uh But I would say that you know, fame is, is uh very isolating, it’s uh, something that uh, takes a moment for you to stabilize yourself, especially if you’re, you know, really in it for the music, uh or for, you know your craft, because it can be a distraction from all of those things. Suddenly, it’s about, you know, keeping up with your career, or keeping up with, uh, number ones, or you know, being on top. And with this record, I just tried to spend the last three years recalibrating myself so that I could have human connection with, you know, people all over the world that maybe didn’t think that they could ever have a connection with somebody like [me]."
