Lady Gaga sat down for a candid interview on CBS's Sunday Morning show. She touches on her breakup, her musical transformation, her strong family bond. Through tears, she goes on to discuss how fame made her lose a connection with everyday people.
- Her grandmother told her, "I hope that you won't be too maudlin while you're putting this music into the world." She didn't want gaga to form a self-pitying obsession with the death of her aunt (too late)
- On her breakup with Taylor: "I think women love very hard... sometimes I don't know that the love is met with the type of dignity we wish it would be met with..."
- On her music evolution: "I think it is hard for [fans] at times to change from album to album because I go through quite a transformation and that's just the way I am as an artist. They have to let go of the last era of music."
- Had trouble washing off the persona she created: "I used to come home and I think my mom used to watch me have a real hard time washing it off. I'd keep the wigs on. I'd keep the makeup on. I'd keep the outfits on. I never wanted to let my fans down, I always wanted them to see me in my art form."
- On her privacy: "I'm very accutely aware that once I cross my property line, I'm not free anymore. As soon as I go out into the world, I belong, in a way, to everyone else. It’s legal to follow me. It’s legal to stalk me at the beach. And I can’t call the police or ask them to leave."
- On missing everday people: "I miss going anywhere and meeting a random person and saying 'hi' and having a normal conversation about life. I love people."
