Lady Gaga has opened up about the perils of fame.
In an appearance on CBS’s “Sunday Morning,” the “Million Reasons” singer talked about how her life has changed since becoming famous and how she feels like she has no freedom because of the attention she has been getting. Gaga also said that she finds solace in her home, and that leaving it gives her a bit of anxiety.
“I’m very acutely aware that once I cross that property line I’m not free anymore,” Gaga said. “As soon as I go out into the world, I belong, in a way, to everyone else. It’s legal to follow me. It’s legal to stalk me at the beach. And I can’t call the police or ask them to leave.”
The singer also said that she misses being able to interact with people. She did, however, say that at the end of the day, even if she can’t be free physically, she can still be free at heart.
Gaga has been opening up a lot about her struggle with fame and privacy in the past couple of months. In an essay for Harper’s Bazaar, the “A-Yo” singer explained why it took her a long time to come out with her latest album, “Joanne.”
“I wanted to experience music again the way I did when I was younger, when I just had to make it, instead of worrying what everybody thinks or being obsessed with things that aren’t important,” Gaga wrote.
The singer has struggled with fame since her ascent to stardom in 2008 via the hit “Poker Face.” A Page Six report from 2010 said the singer once dined at a restaurant. Gaga was reportedly wearing a see-through gown with a nude veil. An onlooker took a photo of the singer, a source said, which bothered the singer. Gaga reportedly approached the stranger and asked for the photo to be deleted.
