Lady Gaga Says Fame Is 'Alienating' and 'Toxic'
Being famous has got some serious downsides.

Lady Gaga opened up about the pitfalls of stardom, breaking down in tears during a CBS Sunday Morning interview set to air this weekend.

Discussing how fame has changed her, the singer, born Stefani Germanotta, revealed it’s very hard for her to connect with people these days. According to her, she misses connecting with everyday people and having the ability to walk down the street without creating some sort of fan frenzy.

“I’m very acutely aware that once I cross that property line, I’m not free anymore,” she 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.”

“I miss people,” Gaga continued through tears. “I miss people. I miss, you know, going anywhere and meeting a random person and saying, ‘Hi,’ and having a conversation about life. I love people.”

Amid Kanye West’s hospitalization, which reportedly stemmed from exhaustion due to the rapper’s busy schedule, Gaga reached out to send her well wishes to her fellow artist. As someone who struggled with depression and anxiety in the past, Mother Monster explained that mental health is no joke and should be taken seriously.

CBS Sunday Morning airs on Sundays at 9 AM ET.
