April 26, 2011 – 25 year old Lady Gaga always seems like she is on top of her game when on stage and when she makes her fashion statements (read wearing outrageous outfits) but believe it or not she has her own insecurities.
Gaga recently did a HBO documentary revealing a lot of things in which she showed a much softer side. She was filmed in black and white in her dressing room, where she broke down in tears while talking about her fame and her fans, whom she calls her “Little Monsters”.
She said, “I still sometimes feel like a loser kid in high school and I just have to pick myself up and tell myself that I’m a superstar every morning so that I can get through this day and be for my fans what they need for me to be.”
“…I’m fighting for every kid that’s like me, that felt like I felt and feels like I still feel. ‘It hurts when I know how much authenticity and how much genuine blood is in my spirit and how much I feel like people don’t know that… cos they see wigs and lipstick and they shut down, cause they don’t understand.”…
After crying and revealing how she really feels about everything she closed with a word of prayer asking God to give her courage before her show at Madison Square Garden.
Lady Gaga added that: “Right now the only thing that I am concerned with in my life is being an artist … I had to suppress it for so many years in high school because I was made fun of but now I’m completely insulated in my box of insanity and I can do whatever I like.”
