To Top

Lady Gaga recently spoke to Jamie Lee Curtis for Variety and PBS’ Actors on Actors series, and the topic was fame.


Gaga said:

“I don’t think I could think of a single thing that’s more isolating than being famous. I think the hardest thing for me is that I love people so much and it is very hard to not be able to engage with people in a real and honest way…because they either want something from me or they see me as something that I simply am not.”

She went on:

“I am not some goddess that dropped down from the sky to sing pop music, I am not some extra-incredible human person that needs to be told how wonderful they are all day and kissed…I don’t need any of that. Truly, my purpose on this earth is to make people happy through and heal people through music.”

She went on to say that she would be doing the exact same thing whether she was famous or not, creating art.

“Creative expression is what I am and I would’ve been doing this whether I became famous or not,” she said.

“I still would be doing what I do. I wouldn’t have given up to try to get famous in another way…I wanted to get a job being creative and I did.”

Do you agree with her that fame can be isolating?
