Lady Gaga is one of the most famous singers in the world, but she still worries about her career.
“When you become known or you become a star, a lot of things happen, and you have to navigate this system – especially in the music industry as it is today, and it’s very different, “ Gaga recently told British magazine NME. “We have to do with the war against streaming, and it’s a real nightmare to see it as an artist, because it’s not music that counts but business – and I’m not like that at all. In fact, what I am, and who I really am, is a little girl who loved the piano.”
Lady Gaga recently released an album, Joanne, her first since Artpop in 2013.
The album was not a great success, so much so that the eccentric star admits, she considered ending her career. “I was going through a very depressing period in my life and I no longer saw my own abilities or talent,” she says
“And when you lose sight of that kind of thing, you can get into a negative spiral. But you know, for the whole world, “leaving music” means something, and for me it means something else. I wanted to stop getting out of the music, in opposition to doing just for myself, because that’s what really makes me happy. ”
After a long and difficult introspection, Lady Gaga changed her mind, determined not to listen to the critics and focus on her “own opinion”:
“I do not want to look arrogant (…) but After selling 80 million albums, we can say: “Ok, seriously, why would I give up now?”.
