Lady Gaga Says Nothing Is More Isolating Than Being Famous

Lady Gaga Says Nothing Is More Isolating Than Being Famous

Lady Gaga is opening up about her thoughts on fame in a new “Actors on Actors” discussion with Jamie Lee Curtis for Variety.

“I don’t think I could think of a single thing that’s more isolating than being famous,” Gaga said, agreeing with something Jamie brought up.

Jamie then says that they both sought out fame, though they clarify that to seeking out art.

“It’s almost impossible for people even to probably look at my career and the things I’ve done and think, ‘Oh, she didn’t want [that] – of course she wanted to be famous, of course she wanted all that attention.’ It’s just, creative expression is what I am and I would’ve been doing this whether I became famous or not,” Gaga added. “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.”

Gaga continued by bringing up how it’s hard to meet people’s expectations when they meet her in person and also to make connections with people who don’t want something from her.

“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 said. “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.”

    Another whining celebrity who wants people to believe that their privileged world of designer clothes, walking the red carpets, winning awards being friends with OTHER rich and famous actors and (isn’t she even engaged to a good guy) is supposed to be a lonely world. Is this some technique they think will get people to boo hoo and feel sorry for them so buy their music or watch their film? First world woes..try living in some refugee came and not knowing where your next meal will come from Lady Gaga.

    I know right. When i watch that interview and Jamie Lee Curtis (who i respect) talk that fame isolated her, i was like: “WTF”. It’s just so selfish in some way.

    but it’s like sooooo hard being told how amazing you are all the time, you just don’t get it.

    I think people have a hard time with her mainly cause she’s full of shit or at least that’s how she comes accross, she’s always playing the victim, always trying to mess with other people, she seems nice but she’s kinda insane, how you gon say you didn’t want or seek to be famous when her first years in the business were only about that, she would’ve done anything to become famous and now that she’s tasted it and don’t like it she’s like ugh i never wanted it,
    maybe people would like her more if she was a bit more honest to herself and real

    Quite a different perspective coming from an artist of that magnitude. Obviously she’s got a grasp of the culture and wants change. Creative and bold. Only artist broadening her range with passion
