Lady Gaga talks about how lonely and ugly she feels
Thinking about Lady Gaga (32), we all think that she is that one talented star who is full of confidence and practices what she preaches, but it seems like she, just like the rest of us, is struggling with insecurities, loneliness and feeling ugly! Reportedly, when Lady Gaga met Bradley Cooper (43), he made her clean all her makeup because he wanted the raw face of hers to be on with n mask or anything and she now confesses that she is way more like her character in A Star Is Born than people think!
She said: "It put me right in the place I needed to be, because when my character talks about how ugly she feels—that was real, I'm so insecure."
"To be honest, I think what makes me feel beautiful is when I see happiness in my fans. When I see or hear from them that the music that I’ve made has changed their life in some way, that’s what makes me feel beautiful."
"Because this is just the outside, you know? And at the end of the day, I could be in a million movies and put out a million songs and everyone could say, 'She was so beautiful', but that’s not really what I want."
"I want them to say, 'I saw that movie and I cried my eyes out and I learned something about myself.'"
She talked about how she felt the loneliness of her character: "It’s very lonely being a performer. There’s a certain loneliness that I feel, anyway—that I’m the only one that does what I do. So, it feels like no one understands. And the urge to use is because you’re searching for a way to quell the pain."
"When I first started to perform around the country doing nightclubs, there was stuff everywhere, but I had already partied when I was younger, so I didn’t dabble. I was able to avoid it because I did it when I was a kid."
She also was unlike her character in some ways: "When we meet Ally, she’s given up on herself. And that’s very different from me. I just wasn’t overwhelmed by the odds. The truth is, if we were not sitting here today and I hadn’t sold as many records as I have, I’d still be in a bar somewhere playing the piano and singing. It’s just who I want to be."
This is why she still in an inspiration for all the fans all over the world.
She continued by saying: "I was dragging my piano from dive bar to dive bar to play music. I was calling people, faking being my own manager to get gigs. I really believed in myself that I could do this and that I wasn’t going to stop until I made it."
