Lady Gaga, one of the most famous and successful music artists in the world, knows what it's like to feel isolated.
The 30-year-old pop star, who had titled her first and second album The Fame and The Fame Monster, recently spoke to actress Jamie Lee Curtis about the negative side of fame for Variety and PBS' "Actors on Actors" series.
"I don't think I could think of a single thing that's more isolating than being famous," Lady Gaga said, adding, "I think the hardest thing for me is that I love people so much and it is very hard to not be able to engage with people in a real and honest way...because they either want something from me or they see me as something that I simply am not."
"I am not some goddess that dropped down from the sky to sing pop music, I am not some extra-incredible human person that needs to be told how wonderful they are all day and kissed...I don't need any of that," she said. "Truly, my purpose on this earth is to make people happy through and heal people through music."
