Lady Gaga almost quit music —like for real! The pop star had a hard time at the end of 2014 and almost walked away from pop music.”At the end of 2014, my stylist asked, ‘Do you even want to be a pop star anymore?’. I looked at him and I go, ‘You know, if I could just stop this train right now, today, I would. I just can’t. [But] I need to get off now because I’m going to die.’When you’re going so fast you don’t feel safe anymore, you feel like you’re being slapped around and you can’t think straight. But then I felt hands lifting me. It was like everybody came together to try and put a star back in the sky, and they weren’t going to let me down.”

In 2013 Lady Gaga’s album, Artpop failed on the charts. In 2014 Gaga turned back to music with the help of Tony Bennett.”There is nobody more badass than Tony Bennett. That man is a part of the history of music in a way that is extremely powerful, and he taught me to stay true to who I am, to not let anybody exploit me. He is responsible in so many ways for making me happy, and I can say the same for Elton [John]. When the whole industry turned their back on me duringArtpop, they were the ones who said, ‘Hey, this is a blip. It’s going to go away.'”
