Pop superstar Lady Gaga, whose new feature documentary began streaming today on Netflix, bared her emotions in a message to fans to mark the release of the movie, “Gaga: Five Foot Two.”
Gaga wrote on her Twitter account about the highs and lows associated with fame, telling her fans that the new documentary “reveals that fame is not all it’s cracked up to be. It is lonely, it is isolating, and it is very psychologically challenging because fame changes the way you’re viewed by people.”
The singer adds: “For me, it feels very unnatural, but complicated because I know it is my destiny to be a performer. Yet I am so humbled by the side of fame that breeds love from the world, the voice I’ve been given by my fans to spread messages of empowerment and equality, the fortunate life it’s brought to me and my family and how we can now give to others in need.”
Directed by Chris Moukarbel, the cinema verite “Gaga: Five Foot Two” tracks the artist during the production and release of Gaga’s 2016 album “Joanne” and her performance during the halftime show of this year’s Super Bowl.
