For days, people have been talking about Lady Gaga's Netflix documentary, Five Foot Two, which gave Little Monsters an inside view of her life behind the camera.
From music reinvention to image transformation, Mother Monster took her fans on the roller coaster ride that is life - including her battle with chronic pain disorder. Halfway through the Chris Moukarbel-directed non-fiction film, she tells herself: "I don't think that the world was ready to see who I really am because I wasn't ready to be myself."
When Lady Gaga started out producing her fifth studio album Joanne, she had nothing in mind but to unmask a thousand images and let the world see the real her. Dedicating the latest record to her late aunt Joanne Stefani Germanotta who died of lupus, the "Perfect Illusion" singer shares an in-depth look at her extensive involvement in the production of the entire album with Mark Ronson serving as the its executive producer.
As she opens up about her real emotions, Little Monsters are given a rare glimpse of the pop icon's vulnerable side while sharing some of her realizations in life not just as an artist but also as a normal human being. Apart from the personal loss of her beloved aunt, she also expressed her sorrow over her past break-ups including the one that involved her ex-fiance, Taylor Kinney.
“I’m alone, every night,” the "Born This Way" hitmaker says. “And all these people will leave, right? They will leave, and then I’ll be alone. And I go from everyone touching me all day and talking at me all day to total silence.”
From her notable "Bad Romance" performance during iconic artist Tony Bennett's 90th birthday to her Super Bowl halftime preparations, Lady Gaga wants to show her fans the dedication that she has for her craft that made her one of the greatest pop legends of her time.
Overall, Five Foot Two delivers a genuine narrative that lets her fans see through the picture of the big decision she made to break free from her high fashion image to transform herself into the artist that she always wanted to be.
The thing is, the world should have been ready to see the real her from the very beginning.
