Lady Gaga: It’s really nice to just have time to be alone

Lady Gaga had an interesting interview with Wallpaper magazine. In the very beginning, Gaga said that she enjoys the time she spends alone and that she has changed a lot in the last few years. "I’m actually really interested in living more of a life of solitude,” Lady Gaga told Wallpaper magazine, as quoted by pagesix.com “It’s really nice to just have time to be alone, and be expansive, and know that you’re enough.

I wish I could tell my younger self that. When I was younger, I spent a lot of time alone writing music. But the more successful I became, the more I felt like I needed other people to tell me I was great”.

Lady Gaga and her work

Lady Gaga works alone a lot.

She is a great artist and constantly wants to create new works of art; Whether in music or some other fields. It's as if she likes public life less and less. “When I was about 14 years old, I read a book called ‘Letters to a Young Poet’ by Rainer Maria Rilke.

And I have a [quote from the book] tattooed on my arm. I got it in Osaka, when I was 23. ‘In the deepest hour of the night, ask yourself if you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. Look deep into your heart where the answer spreads its roots and ask yourself, Muss ich schreiben? [Must I write?]' If I wasn’t successful in the way that I am today — I’m very grateful for my success — I’d still be doing it, I’d be on the Lower East Side.

I would do it no matter what. Absolutely, 100%,” she said. I know that because I actually don’t spend a lot of time in Hollywood. I might look like I do because sometimes award season happens and you see me on red carpets. But I’m very much at home working. That’s the thing that really makes me happy”.
