Lady Gaga's recently wrote to her fans, explaining how sad she had been recently. Her earnesty in it is a little off-putting, especially when combined with a bit of whining, a spot of pretentious b*llshit and then stuck in an 'open letter' and posted on the internet.
In fact, it's really hard to understand the reasons for posting up this sort of open letter at all. It's seems a lot like the kind of activity you get asked to do in rehab or after being sectioned. We'd imagine. Anyway, here it is...
A letter to my sweet fans..
Today is a really happy day for me. The past year was a challenge, and I’m so happy to have my spirit back. I felt in chains at times. Whether is be the record label disagreeing with me on single choices, or directors who could only create an idea of “gaga” or what i’ve “done before” and not able to move forward, and there was also of course the incessant dragging of the most important single of my career in dead-beaten-horse-mud.
Then there were all the personal moments. Betrayed by lifelong friends, mentors I’ve had for years suddenly taking advantage of me, and a massive struggles with my body image.
I’ve grown and left most of these things behind, the monsters of fame are very real. But I wanted to thank you for baring with me a little bit.
Today’s film [some perfume advert] is what happens when there is love and respect amongst creatives, teams, management. This project was run solely by the HAUS OF GAGA, ATOM FACTORY, AND STEVEN KLEIN’S fantastic team. I am feeling blessed to have removed those from my life driven by money and luxury, its all about the art of it. I feel free today.
Thank you for always being there for me monsters.
I love you.
See what we mean about the rehab letter? Also, surely someone struggling with body issues shouldn't be sticking up naked pictures of themselves on Twitter. Or doing naked photoshoots. Then again what do we know. We've never turned up to an awards ceremony dressed as an egg. Or any awards ceremony come to think of it...
DEAR HOLY MOLY READERS
TODAY IS A REALLY HAPPY DAY FOR US...etc etc etc.
