According to Britain’s Now magazine, the singer wants to go under the knife to combat her depression about her looks. "She’s running on empty and not taking proper care of herself at all. She’s desperately unhappy but keeps talking about having thousands of dollars worth of plastic surgery. She really thinks that could fix everything," says one insider.
Another added, "She’s in a really bad way right now. She puts up such a guard that no one ever really knows what she’s feeling. She thinks she looks too manly and spends hours looking at herself.
As for what’s on Gaga’s checklist to improve, a source says, "She’s thinking about a whole host of cosmetic procedures, including a nose job, cheek implants, boob job and thigh and bum lift. She’s completely preoccupied with overhauling her looks.
In addition to the surgery obsession, those close to Gaga wish she’d take a little time out of the spotlight. "Everyone’s worried about her and is begging her to take a break and get some perspective and work on her self-confidence. She could be relaxing, but she won’t slow down," says the insider. "Her amazing work ethic has got her to where she is today, but I don’t think she realizes she can ease her foot off the gas now that she’s such a success."
