Just watched Gaga Five Foot Two and it made such an impression on me. I knew that it was going to be personal, but wow… It was so strange to see her like this. I thought I kind of knew her, through her music and following her carreer for so many years, but seeing her actual daily life was so different. It made me sad to see that she goes through so much pain on a daily basis. But also so proud that she keeps going, ‘cause she’s doing what she loves most. Making music for her fans.
She’s one of the world’s most famous people and you assume that that means that her life is perfect and that she is happy, ‘cause why wouldn’t she be? It was eye opening seeing a woman of her status go through her daily life, dealing with so many struggles and still marching on.
It was inspirational, sad and funny. I feel like I’ve learned so much about her as a person and I’m so grateful that she’s willing to share this side of herself with the world.
I hope that she’s taking all the time that she needs to heal before going back on tour. I wish that I could tell her that she isn’t dissapointing her fans and that all we want is for her to feel better. I’m even more excited to experience her live again when she’s ready for it. What a woman. I’m proud to call myself a Gaga fan and I’m excited to spend the rest of my life supporting her and her carreer, if that means that I can pay her back even a little bit of the love and comfort that she provided for me through her music throughout the years. Wow.
I think there are different kinds of fame. There’s fame which is plastic and about paparazzi and money and being rich, and then there’s the fame, which is when no one knows who you are but everyone wants to know who you are.
I’ve watched the documentary twice now. Last night I watched it on my TV and cried through the entire thing, half because of how proud I am of Gaga as a human being, and half because when she showed us her rawness, it made the rawest pieces of my soul come forward. It was an immediate connection to her emotion, passion and strength. That’s how it’s always been for me with Gaga though, I think a lot of Monsters can relate. There’s something about her soul that pulled mine in the very first day I ever heard her music. Since that moment it’s like she’s a friend or a sister or someone I feel deeply connected to and inspired by on every level.
The way the documentary showed Gaga as a “normal” woman meant something so deeply special to me. It reminded me that I don’t need to be everyone else’s idea of perfect in order to make something of myself, because perfection only exists as a subjective term, seen differently by every individual who seeks it. And the true beauty is in imperfections. When I say Gaga is imperfect, so many may think of that as an insult but to me it’s the most beautiful compliment I can give someone. Gaga isn’t afraid to be genuine, to fight hard for what she believes in and what she deserves. And it’s taken her years to reach the point that she did on Joanne. And we see it in this documentary. It’s mindblowing.
When I watched for the second time this morning, I had it playing on my laptop as I drank my coffee and got ready for my day. It was impossible to do my makeup because I kept crying it off, so I just sat there and watched again, in awe of this woman who has been a part of my life for nearly a decade. Seeing her still fighting so hard and working so hard for her fans is something I will never get over.
Gaga is a human being. A daughter. A sister. A friend. A lover. An artist. A woman. A beautiful, strong, passionate woman who deserves respect for everything she has done not only for people all over the world for the past decade, but for herself. For fighting for herself and pushing herself even when she felt like giving up. Because it’s a reminder to those of us who struggle every day that if Gaga can do it, so can we.
This documentary moved me to my absolute core, and I have no words to explain how thankful I am to have someone like Gaga in this world, reminding me every day that life, even though it can be a fucking mess sometimes, is beautiful and worth living. I admire her more each and every day. And as the years go by and we grow together, the one thing that will always remain is the love. The genuine love between Gaga and her fans. It’s eternal. 💗🐾
