Lady Gaga has had a rollercoaster of a year. We were shocked when she split with her fianc茅 Taylor Kinney after five years together, then pleasantly surprised when she dropped Joanne into our laps 鈥 a decidedly personal, heart-wrenching album (which also inspired her new, totally stealable look). Then, the star went out on a 鈥淒ive Bar鈥 Tour and signed on to be the half-time performer at this year鈥檚 Superbowl. With so many highs and lows, it鈥檚 no wonder that Gaga seems like she鈥檚 having a really rough go these days, and her latest interview has us wondering if all these emotional ups and downs have taken a toll on the otherwise upbeat and over-the-top singer.

In her interview with CBS聽Sunday Morning, the singer spent a lot of time talking about her dad, which probably means she鈥檚 working something out about their relationship. She kept going back to the idea of love and acceptance, and toward the end of the interview, she welled up with tears.

What could make Lady Gaga cry? She feels like she鈥檚 missing out on life being on the road and living as a celebrity. 鈥淚 miss people. I miss, you know, going anywhere and meeting a random person and saying 鈥楬i鈥 and having a conversation about life. I love people.鈥


We鈥檙e worried that Gaga鈥檚 breakup has taken her deep into her own thoughts. She鈥檚 always been vocal about her life, but it seems like she鈥檚 feeling that her connections to fans and family are failing her. Maybe her album being named after her aunt is opening up a whole lot that she鈥檚 kept at bay, specifically the isolation that fame can give someone, and with her breakup, she鈥檚 feeling pretty alone.

With celebs having mental health crises more and more these days, we鈥檙e wondering if maybe it鈥檚 time for both celebrities and those who hound them to really take a step back and reevaluate what鈥檚 up with the fame machine. We鈥檙e hoping Gaga feels peace in her heart soon, and remembers that she鈥檚 such an inspiration to so many people.
