Lady Gaga lost her mind: ‘Let me be for you the Goddess that I know I truly am’


Lady Gaga is a mess. I really believe we’ve established that by now. What’s weird is that Gaga seems to have done it to herself – she’s no longer the fun dancing queen who didn’t take herself too seriously. Now she’s all about her ART and if we do not recognize her as the most important artist of all time, then she has no time for us. Which would be an okay attitude to take if you could deliver on your art – but I think we can safely say that ARTPOP has been a major disappointment, financially, artistically and however else you want to judge it. There are even stories circulating that ARTPOP’s flop has lost Gaga’s label, Interscope, millions of dollars.

So, Gaga took to her blog,, to answer some of her critics. As it turns out, it’s not her fault, of course. She was used and abused by the people around her and she wasn’t given enough time to really launch ARTPOP properly. Of course.

My heart breaks from the people I have trusted and loved who I’ve worked so closely with, who have used me, lied to me, worked me into the ground for the personal gain… When I woke up in the hospital after my surgery there were many people that were not there. My health did not matter. I did not matter unless I could perform. This is a very hard lesson. I have lost love ones to the greed of money… It is not Interscope. They in fact love me very much and will see ARTPOP to the end.

[The “Do What You Want” video] is late because, just like with the Applause video unfortunately, I was given a week to plan and execute it. It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you.

All my most successful videos were planned over a period of time when I was rested and my creativity was honored. Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result. Millions of dollars are not enough for some people. They want billions. Then they need trillions. I was not enough for some people. They wanted more.

I am very grateful to the photographers and designers who have always stood by me to make sure my fans are never aware of the things that happen behind the scenes, but unfortunately after my surgery I was too sick, too tired, and too sad to control the damage on my own. My label was not aware that this was going on.

The next few months of ARTPOP will truly be its beginning. Because those who did not care about ARTPOP’s success are now gone, and the dreams I have been planning can now come to fruition. Please forgive me that I did not foresee this coming, I never thought after all the years of hard work that those I called friends and partners would ever care so little at a time I needed them the most.

Give me a chance to show you the meaning of seeing art all around you. Open your hearts to me again that I may show you the joy of us coming together through our talents, that we are stronger as a unit than when we are alone. Let me be for you the Goddess that I know I truly am, let me show you the visions that have been in my mind for two years. I love you. Forgive me monsters. Forgive me ARTPOP. You are my whole world.

You know what this means? Gaga is going to try to re-launch and re-brand this disaster. Which means that there will be more interviews, more costumes, more craziness and more people ignoring her. We have to go through all of this junk again!! And I’m sorry, but saying that she wasn’t given enough time? Bulls—t. She dropped “Applause” early because she was jealous of the attention Katy Perry was getting. Gaga plotted out all of these stunts, spread out across the past four months, and now she’s just mad that all of that stunt-queening was for naught.

Oh, and I am not looking forward to that “Do What You Want” music video. Terry Richardson directed it. And R. Kelly is in it. Ugh.

    Oh for f*cks sake…

    If she just stopped with all the ART crap then she could find the tide turning in her favour again. She’s become insufferable. No one else is to blame for that.
    That still image from the DWYW video shoot is vintage Richardson, vile.

  2. paola says:

    pfff. she lost her mind a long time ago.

    she needs rehab for deluded people.

  3. Livan says:

    I think the best public stunt for her right now would be to dress “normally”! Dress in a way that is flattering and makes her look good! Dress in a flattering way and concentrate on the music. She should learn from Madonna, she never did the same crazy thing forever, look att Madonnas “Evita remake” after the “Sex” period.

  4. bns says:

    I saw this yesterday. She needs to stop emotionally manipulating her fans for sympathy. If she’s really that upset she needs to talk to a professional/her parents/God/whatever, but not teenagers on the internet.

  5. Jessica says:

    Girl, you are not a goddess, and people who worship you as one are morons.

  6. Evi says:

    One day she’ll run out of 80s pop stars to copy and hopefully disappear.
    The second image: She has copied 80s singer and one hit wonder Marilyn.
    Even her facial pose and expression is Marilyn.

    Seriously, does she think people are stupid not to know that she has dredged up everyone, to ape them? She has even stooped low to copy Donatella Versace’s look.

  7. Lisa says:

    She doesn’t knows how to handle the fact that her star is fading. It is pretty funny because she is known for her obsession with fame. Sweet irony.

  8. QQ says:

    She is ridiculous, instead of yammering on and on butthurt that no one bought her shit how about you explain to us all why did you give footing to a known pedophile for a career resurgence, and why is ok for a chick with so many young and vulnerable followers to be parading around and providing income to the pondscum that is Terry Richardson?

    • OriginallyBlue says:

      Amen! This broad is ridiculous.

    • bns says:

      She thinks that she can escape that by releasing a new version with Christina Aguilera. LOL she is so pathetic and I can’t believe I used to like her.

      It was only a matter of time before a “meltdown” happened and I feel like there’s worse to come.

    • littlestar says:

      When I saw R. Kelly perform the song on SNL with Gaga I thought, “wtf – wasn’t be blacklisted for sex tapes with young girls?” And then shortly after Celebitchy had actual balls to call R. Kelly and those who work with him out. It makes it 10 times worse that Uncle Terry is the one directing the video! I just don’t understand her anymore, she’s basically sabotaging her own career because her head is so far up her own butt that she’s doesn’t even realize it.

      • V4Real says:

        @Leila I’m sure she knew.

        @littlestar R. Kelly was never blacklisted. It’s been out there on the urban blogs for years and it’s nothing new. R. Kelly is still a popular R&B artist, if you’re not heavy into R&B that explains why not knowing about his past with underage girls. People knew what he did but took his art over his crime. There are fans that are saying we don’t care what he did 15 years ago, we still like his music.

        Look how fans are so forgiving of Chris Brown. Look how people still love Mark Walhberg even after he almost beat a man to death. I think the man he beat is blind. I find R. Kelly’s actions with these teens repulsive but I will be lying if I said I don’t like some of his music. I would be lying if I said I didn’t love this song with Lady Gaga. We pick and choose who we want to forgive, depending on the crime or the moral issues. Look how many fans Phil from Duck Dynasty still have. A& E even put that show back on TV.

    YOU’RE A MUSICIAN! THAT’S IT! Not a Goddess. Not a revolutionary. Not a visionary. Not even a particularly original musician. YOU ARE JUST A MUSICIAN. FFS stop bathing yourself in the ashes of your dying hype.

    • Irishserra says:

      I agree! She’s a musician who is fortunate enough to be able to make a living at what she enjoys doing and should be thankful that she has a following. Her “monsters” are not important to her. If they were, she would be gracious to them and not give a fig what the critics say. But what she wants is to become a legend and conquer the world.

    • Lady Gaga says:

      I am not JUST a musician, I am the Goddess of teenagers! I am their mother. Nothing is ever my fault, everyone is against me and they want to see me fall. Anything good that happens to my career was ALL ME. Anything bad was evil people trying to destroy my kingdom. That is the truth because I NEVER LIE.

    • delphi says:

      “…bathing yourself in the ashes of your dying hype.”

      OMG. You win the intarwebs for that line. Mind if I file that away for future use? (Seeing as how I work in the arts, it will come in SO very handy.

  10. Danigirl says:

    Get over yourself.. You’re a pop star!

  11. FingerBinger says:

    Sounds like the ranting and ravings of a paranoid drug addict.

  12. ANDREA1 says:

    This Lady is completely deluded.
    People caused this.. When she started out people loved her and her the crazy antics she was pulling here and there some people even felt she was the best thing that ever happened to pop music.
    I never for one day bought it or even liked it. Now it has all back fired and she is soo desperate to be on people’s good books once again and to regain her position at the top.. Its not happening soon because as I see it she keeps digging a pit and she is falling in deeper.

  13. Andreia says:

    LOL is she serious ?! WTF she needs help…fast!

  14. Nicolette says:

    It must be exhausting to constantly weave a tapestry of bulls**t.

  15. Skye says:

    Ugh. I like Gaga but she proves (like so many before her) that it’s NOT the role of an artist to evaluate his/her own work. Express what is within, and let people have their reactions to it. Whether you’re good OR bad, nothing makes an artist more insufferable and mockable than explanations of how brilliant he/she is and how mistaken you are if you don’t see that.

    That said, I saw her on Graham Norton and – while it won’t stop me from listening to my favorite Gaga songs – it was an eyeroller. She seems VERY young and oblivious of how much she still has to learn.

    • Darwinator says:

      Yes, I saw her on that show. Her musical performances were good, but she seemed very druggy on the sofa. Maybe it was an act, but she was just a beat behind the conversation the whole time and made very little eye contact while she was talking. I have certainly seen her be spot-on in previous interviews. Count me among those who think ARTPOP was a good album, although I appreciate it musically more than I enjoy it, if that makes sense. I just can’t with all the personal pretension, though. If this is drug-fueled, things are getting out-of-hand and i hope she still has people around her who can help.

  16. phlyfiremama says:

    Is it just me, or does she kind of look like the dreadlock twins from the matrix???

  17. Miffy says:

    Tee hee hee ‘Goddess’ *snicker* ‘my creativity was honored’ *titter* ‘Give me the chance to show you the meaning of the art all around you’ BAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAAAA *wheeze* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHH *snort* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAaaaaaa…. hee hee hee, whew! Oh that’s a cracking read.

    Oh Christ, she really is so far up her own arse she’s almost wearing her own face as a hat (cue her next outfit).

  18. Dani says:

    Why can’t she just go away? Old Gaga (paparazzi, love game, just dance) was soo good and talented and dare I say even inspiring and refreshing. Now it’s just the same load of BS over and over again. She has the James Franco illness.

  19. magz says:

    More importantly than her losing her mind is that she has lost the mystery and surprise. Shes not entertaining anymore, just like every other blinky one-speed type of toys you got as a kid.

  20. Irishserra says:

    Huh. R. Kelly… Just another reason for my to boycott this lunatic.

  21. Jayna says:

    What a bore. Still whining after all these years. She should have named the album Martyr.

  22. Hakura says:

    It’s clear that Gaga’s definition of ‘who loves her’ is whoever kisses her ass. (There appears to be some mutual ass-kissing with Interscope… Maybe she’s trying to stay in their good graces so as not to be dropped?) She’s just pissed that Miley stole her thunder this passed year (no one gave a damn about *her* VMA performance (complete with oh-so-scandalous exposed ass-cheeks) after Miley’s). After which that ‘completely naked yoga’ video suddenly appeared online.

    She’s not happy with the public’s reaction to her album, therefore she threw a whole team of people under the bus in order to free herself from responsibility (although if something does well, she has no problem taking all the glory). On one hand, she claims all they cared about was money, but on the other she implies that they could care less about the success of the album. That makes no sense.

    I’m sure her ‘losing loved ones to greed’ statement was in reference to her former personal assistant (who was her BFF before she got famous) suing her for not being paid properly (& having to tolerate abusive behavior & totally unreasonable demands). Like I said, she only ‘loves’ someone when they’re kissing her ass, even of it’s someone who knew the *real* Stefani.

    I read the forward to that ‘coffee table book’ she did with Uncle Terry… She described him as ‘the most beautiful, wonderful, loving person she’s ever known’. That alone says it all.

    • littlestar says:

      +1000 to everything you said, Hakura. I said above that Lady Gaga is the only one who is sabotaging her career, no one else. Yet she has to audacity to blame others. I wonder what she’s actually like in person, behind closed doors, no fame or attention or paparazzi. I wouldn’t be surprised if she still carries on with the “Gaga” persona. She is so exhausting.

      • Hakura says:

        I’m glad my super long comment didn’t cause everyone to just skip it xD I know I can be a bit (read: alot) long-winded with my posts, so thanks for taking the time to read it <333 =)

        I'd be shocked if she *didn't* stay in 'Gagaverse' on her 'down-time'… She seems like a weird combination of diva popstar, eccentric high-strung abstract artist type, & an arrogant method actor.

        I see her persona as similar to Beyonce's… on stage she's the alter-ego 'Sasha Fierce', which isn't an unusual tactic for performers to use. But as time passed, Beyonce became convinced that she, in real life, was 'Queen Bey, Empress of Negronia, Goddess & Lord of all she survey's' (& when you're looking out the window of a private jet, that's a lotta surveyin'). [NOTE: The 'Empress of Negronia' thing was by someone else, who came up with it bc Bey seems to see she & Jay-Z as the 'Will & Kate' to African Americans. I definitely don't mean it in a racist or insulting way).

        Point being that Bey lost touch with reality, allowing a persona to take over on *&* off stage, & I really believe that's what's happened with Stefani/Gaga.

  23. Happy21 says:

    I’ve been a Lady Gaga supporter since Day 1 but I almost vomit everytime I read something she has said. She is ridiculous and needs to seriously get over herself. She will never improve as a performer, entertainer, artist, WHATEVER until she does. I got her new album for Christmas because I’ve enjoyed all of her other efforts (I admit there are probably 3 or 4 songs on Born this Way I can’t stand) and I listened to it in my car twice straight through, then I started passing the songs that irritated me. I don’t know the names of any of the songs but enough of the sex, the drugs, the goddess BS – ENOUGH!!! I found most of the album auto tuned and I truly believe that Gaga is so much more talented than what this album reflected.

  24. littlestar says:

    She looks so good in that Versace ad. Normal and non-ridiculous for once.

  25. Leila in wunderland says:

    She sounded like she was preaching to some religious cult in that last paragraph.

  26. Erandyn says:

    “I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you.”
    Oh, the sacrifice!! *slaps wrist to forehead*

  27. dorothy says:

    Stop with all the circus outfits and sing. Don’t talk, just sing.

  28. Sachi says:

    Did she get plastic surgery? She looks like Peaches Geldof on the “banner photo” of this post.

    She’s really used up all her tricks. It didn’t help that she had legal issues in which she didn’t come out smelling like a rose.

    Too much of a something is bad enough…

    She had a lot of gimmicks. Now she’s just a gimmick and one that isn’t attracting much attention anymore. Not for creativity, at least.

  29. klaas says:

    To respond in Alan Carr’s style: Yeah yeah whatevs! Do anyone watch him? He’s so funny, and she was beyond boring.

  30. Bella Bella says:

    I like Gaga but I won’t watch a Woody Allen movie and I think Roman Polanski can rot so I won’t be buying/watching/listening any R.Kelly/Richardson mess. I’m really disappointed in her.

  31. Lia says:

    Needy people tend to turn most other people off. She’s so needy that I think most of us look upon her with disgust instead of bemusement. She herself has done plenty of using and abusing, if even half of the stories about her are true.

  32. Cinderella says:

    She does have talent, but the lunacy is taking over.

  33. Amy says:

    I think she simply bit off more than she could chew. She was doing too much too fast and living in Gaga fantasy land. And I really do believe she had hip surgery. She ignored the problem until she couldn’t anymore which left her physically unable to perform. And while she was recovering, she got behind in her “creative process” meaning all the other pop singers were getting buzz before her album was slated to release. So she had to scramble to put something out and I believe she was under pressure by her label. I don’t know how much I believe the allegations she has written but that surgery definitely set her back. She should have taken some time off. That’s my theory anyways as to why Artpop hasn’t done well.

  34. Bereal says:

    This is just hilarious!!! That xmas tree on her head “Art Pop”,lol!!!!
    and shes serious “Art”, they all are. Kayne/Kim with that ‘Bounty 2′? video, Miley’s… I just cant anymore but the free,daily entertainment value is just priceless!!!!
    Know their 15 mins is up but WHY NOW! Just getting really good/fun! Look at each latest,desperately photoshopped pic of these people and you want them to go away now! Well…ok,plenty more and actually with talent, right behind them. Have to admit that this kind of trash was like a life boat to many a depressed person during the recession here. Some crazy entertainment,bizzaar behavior people could escape into from real life. Just plain stupid now. This ^^ just asinine,they all are.Moving along to real art,beauty and entertainment……

  35. TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

    How about just making good music; but she can’t she now she’s circling the toilet – pretty soon the only person that will be interested in her is her reflection in the mirror.

  36. tealily says:

    Two things: 1.) She did a Muppet Christmas special. How is that serious art? 2.) Business relationships do not equal love. Get over it, dude.

  37. The Rover says:

    Real artists don’t really talk of their work in terms of how ‘artistic’ or ‘revolutionary’ it is. Art is human expression given form through a medium. Its a reflection of an artist’s thoughts, ideas and perception. They don’t hammer on about how ground-breaking it is. All this fake, built up pretension of ‘art’ by Lady Gaga is a see-through act of snobbery and desperation. She’s an alright singer. her songs are just regular pop stuff. She’s no Bob Dylan or Pink Floyd or Tool. Her album didn’t sell because her ‘novelty’ charade is wearing off, her music is no different from what infests the Billboard Top 20 every week. Fancy, outlandish clothes don’t sell albums, good music does. Albums without all the songs sounding the same and without filler material stay with generations of music lovers. She should get over herself, ARTPOP is not Dark Side Of The Moon.

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      Well said my son and many of his friends have the vinyl (it’s coming back) of Dark Side of THe Moon; It’s amazing what a self-absorbed self-contained world these “stars” live in that everything you said is and would be oblivious to them. And Bob Dylan is how old and still on his never ending tour. With all the technology the millennial generation has, the gullibility of many of them is remarkable if they think Stefani is anything other than a manufactured pop singer.
