Lady Gaga Says Fame Is ‘Isolating’

67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Fox After Party - Arrivals

Lady Gaga has had her ups and downs with fame, but the pop star says that fame is lonely and isolating.”I don’t think I could think of a single thing that’s more isolating than being famous. 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 [fame] — of course she wanted to be famous, of course she wanted all that attention,'” Gaga told Jamie Lee Curtis in an interview for PBS’ and Variety’s Actors on Actors  series. “It’s just, creative expression is what I am, and I would’ve been doing this whether I became famous or not.”

The singer whose meteoric rise caused her personal problems.”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. 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 would love more than anything when I meet people to just have a normal exchange with them. More than have my picture taken or a selfie.”
