As we prepare for the official arrival of Joanne, the indie chanteuse is opening up about Fame and her new album.
In a new interview, Gaga got real about her status in the industry and how fame has impacted her. Some choice quotes are below.
“Fame is so alienating and it’s toxic for the creative process, for me, because I need human connection in order to write music,” the 30-year-old “Perfect Illusion” singer said Monday on SiriusXM’s Feedback talk show. “If I go to a bar or to the grocery store or wherever and I try to talk to somebody and the whole time they’re screaming or trying to take a picture, I can’t get to know them.”
She added: “I can’t ask them a question. I can’t learn about their life or share something about mine. I don’t get asked very often, you know, really super deep things about myself and that is hard and it’s scary. Really scary because you just feel like, ‘Will I ever, ever again talk to somebody and have them see me as a person?'”
Gaga said her latest album Joanne is her attempt to “put myself back in that place where I am just a human being.”
“I wouldn’t say that it’s necessarily thematically painful the whole way through — because it’s quite a fun album as well,” she said. “The pain is in my voice.”
The singer then became emotional as she recalled playing the album for her mother.
“When she first heard a couple of songs on the album she just looked at me and she just was crying. I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ and she just said, ‘Nothing, it’s so good and I don’t want you to take this the wrong way because it’s not a bad thing, but, like, you’re voice just sounds different,’ ” Gaga explained.
“I said, ‘What’s different?’ and she just said ‘I can just hear that you’re in some emotional pain.'”
The good sis is also getting serious on twitter.

Have you warmed up to the album? If you don't love Grigio Girlz, you are dead inside.
