Lady Sadder

Lady Gaga has revealed that she has a chronic sadness that rears its ugly head whenever she goes away on tour, saying that she finds it difficult to cope with being away from home for long periods of time. However, like a true artist, she always finds time to channel those emotions into her arts. For example, not many people know that Poker Face was actually a paean to her dead cat, who was killed by a red hot poker to the face.

‘I have a chronic sadness that recurs,’ she told OK Magazine. ‘The lowest point was in Australia in May. I was overwhelmingly sad, and I didn't know why, because I had all these things to be happy about.

‘I went to the studio and played for hours, and I wrote what is going to be the greatest record of my career, a beautiful song about my father. I remember watching the mascara tears flood the ivories and I thought, "It's okay to be sad". I've been trained to love my darkness.’
