Lady Gaga plan­ning a break from mu­sic

La Semana - - FRONT PAGE / PORTADA -

Lady Gaga is tak­ing a break from mu­sic.

The 31-year-old singer says she needs some time off but isn't plan­ning to com­pletely turn her back on the in­dus­try.

Speak­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter at a press con­fer­ence for her Net­flix doc­u­men­tary 'Gaga 5'2"', she said: "I'm going to take a rest. It doesn't mean I won't be cre­at­ing. It doesn't mean I don't have some things up my sleeve. This is my most im­por­tant thing I do, is to en­ter­tain peo­ple and to make them happy,"

"I want to slow down for a mo­ment, for some heal­ing."

And Gaga is ex­cited about the re­lease of her new doc­u­men­tary, as it will give peo­ple a bet­ter in­sight into who she is.

She said: "It's a hedge of pro­tec- tion on my legacy of the past 10 years. It's a nice place to be, be­cause I'm sur­rounded by won­der­ful peo­ple."

The movie also high­lights Gaga's bat­tle with chronic pain, which she de­scribed as "lib­er­at­ing".

She said: "It's okay... It's hard. But it's lib­er­at­ing too. There's an el­e­ment and a very strong piece of me that be­lieves pain is a mi­cro­phone. My pain does me no good un­less I trans­form it into some­thing that is. "

Di­rec­tor Chris Moukar­bel added: "It was in­cred­i­bly hard, on a ba­sic fun­da­men­tal hu­man level, to be near some­one ex­pe­ri­enc­ing pain like that. There's noth­ing you can do, be­yond film­ing.

"I felt I needed to con­tinue to roll. She was very aware of peo­ple strug­gling with sim­i­lar chronic pain. She's not even sure how to deal with it."
