Lady Gaga is SO sweet! In a new interview Sept. 13, the singer revealed her thoughts on artists, like Selena Gomez taking time to ‘check yourself’ amidst the craziness of fame. Gaga gave her deep and heartfelt opinion on the topic, admitting ‘fame is very isolating.’ Hear her candid confession here.
Lady Gaga, 30, sat down for an interview Sept. 13, where she spoke about taking time before her new album to create a “human connection” with people. When the radio hosts of KTU 103.5‘s Cubby and Carolina Bermudez said, “there’s a lot of artists out there who are unwilling to take that break,” they mentioned how Selena Gomez, 24, decided to take time away from her Revival tour to focus on her health. They asked Gaga, “Is the fame thing really that serious, where it takes you kind of a minute to check yourself?” The singer replied, “I’d say its definite, I mean, serious is broad…term. There is a lot of really serious things going on in the world. So, its hard to say…But I would say that you know, fame is, is very isolating, something that takes a moment for you to stabilize yourself, especially if you’re really in it for the music, or your craft, because it can be a distraction from all of those things.”
She added, “Suddenly, it’s about keeping up with your career, or keeping up with, number ones, or you know, being on top.” Gaga went on to to mention why she took her own time away from music. “And with this record, I just tried to spend the last three years recalibrating myself so that I could have human connection with people all over the world that maybe didn’t think that they could ever have a connection with somebody like [me],” she said. Gaga recently admitted that her upcoming (and untitled) album has “a lot of rage” on it. She just dropped her buzzed about, hit single, “Perfect Illusion,” and fans are OBSESSED.
Selena released a statement August 30, announcing that she was taking some time off due to the side effects from Lupus. “As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” she told PEOPLE. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges. I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off.” This isn’t the first time Selena has cut her tour short due to health reasons. In 2013, she put her Stars Dance tour on hold in the midst of it’s run. She later admitted that it was due to her battle with the autoimmune disease. We’re glad Sel is doing what’s best for her health at this time and we hope she gets well soon!
