Lady Gaga Recalls Post-Surgery Bum Out
Tue, 10 Sep 2013 13:46:11
Lady Gaga was miserable when recovering from hip surgery because she missed her fans.
"When I had surgery I really missed being on stage and I have missed the applause," she said. "That is an incredible feeling, knowing the audience is happy. When I have done that, that's when I am happiest."
But don't mistake her love of the fans and their applause with the love of fame or the cult of celebrity.
"I haven't missed the fame or attention with all the rest of it," she pointed out. "I really enjoyed the downtime because it rejuvenated my creativity and I figured a lot about myself in the past year. I realized i am not in it for the fame. I don't need to go out and be recognized to feel alive. I do miss being onstage singing, and dancing, but didn't miss getting dressed up. I still got dressed up, I just did it in my apartment, I did that for just me."
Have you ever seen Lady Gaga live? If so, how was she?
