Lady Gaga doesn't think fame makes you happy

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 'Bad Ro­mance' hit­maker says celebri­ties have been "put on a pedestal" and feels kind­ness is far more im­por­tant than celebrity and fame. Speak­ing at a con­cert at West­field shop­ping cen­tre in West Lon­don, she said: "Money has been put on a pedestal, beauty has been put on a pedestal, celebrity has been put on a pedestal. I have trav­elled the world and seen the hap­pi­est peo­ple in the poor­est parts of the world. "Their val­ues are in­tact. In the rich­est homes I meet the sad­dest and most de­pressed peo­ple. With this al­bum I wanted to re­mind the whole world and my fans that the most im­por­tant things are love and kind­ness. Kind­ness is what will cre­ate har­mony, not celebrity and not fame." Mean­while, the 30-year-old singer pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted she doesn't feel "free" now she is fa­mous. She ex­plained: "I'm very acutely aware that once I cross that prop­erty line I'm not free any­more. As soon as I go out into the world, I be­long, in a way, to ev­ery­one else. "It's le­gal to fol­low me. It's le­gal to stalk me at the beach. And I can't call the po­lice or ask them to leave. And I took a long hard look at that prop­erty line and I said, 'Well, if I can't be free out there, I can be free in [my heart]."
