Even with an army of Little Monsters, Lady Gaga feels alone sometimes. But on an episode of Lifetime's The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet Thursday, the 26-year-old pop star said, "I've begun to cherish my loneliness."

"[I] was very depressed when I was 19," she said. "I decided to pursue music, so I dropped out of school and I told my parents I didn't want any money from them. I got three jobs and hit the ground running."

Since she was "around 20 years old," however, she's been embracing her time alone. That might be a good thing right now, considering the ongoing rumors that she and Vampire Diaries' boyfriend Taylor Kinney have called it quits.

Us Weekly reports that Gaga and Kinney, 30, are "on a break" since she's "touring nonstop until next year and has found she can't have a relationship at the same time."

A source tells the mag Kinney "was never that attentive to her," and although Gaga "loved that she got the guy who everyone thought was hot…it was never going to last."
