Gaga almost quit music

LOS ANGELES: US pop star Lady Gaga has revealed that one year ago she considered quitting music altogether, after feeling as if she’d been written off.

“At the end of 2014, my stylist asked, ‘Do you even want to be a pop star anymore?’ I looked at him and I go, ‘You know, if I could just stop this train right now, today, I would. I just can’t. (But) I need to get off now because I’m going to die’,” she said.

“When you’re going so fast you don’t feel safe anymore, you feel like you’re being slapped around and you can’t think straight. But then I felt hands lifting me. It was like everybody came together to try and put a star back in the sky, and they weren’t going to let me down.”

But after feeling as if the whole music industry had turned their back on her, it was veteran crooner Tony Bennett who helped Gaga get back to doing what she does best.

“There is nobody more bada** than Tony Bennett,” Gaga said.
