Lady Gaga Breaks Down Revealing She’s Alone Despite Fame, as Her Former Christian Teacher Warned
In so far as celebrities can make it to the top of their respective careers (sports, singing, or acting), I admire that, but – first of all, I do not worship celebrity, as so many other people do, but secondly, I have seen so many stories for years now about how when someone finally becomes really famous, they still end up happy. Some celebrities commit suicide.
Here’s an article I saw today about how singer Lady Gaga still sometimes feels lonely, even though she’s very famous and successful:

Lady Gaga’s [real name – Stefani Germanotta] former teacher, evangelist Chris White, once warned the pop star that she would be left feeling empty from her fame. In a new preview for her upcoming “Five Foot Two” documentary, the singer tearfully reveals that she is in fact alone despite her fame.
“Gaga: Five Foot Two” is an upcoming Netflix documentary in which the superstar singer gives her fans a sneak peek into her personal life. On Thursday, the “Born This Way” singer took to social media with several short previews of the intimate documentary, which is set to debut on Netflix on Sept. 22.
In one of the three clips posted, the Grammy winner is heard sobbing on the phone while revealing to her best friend, celebrity stylist Brandon Maxwell, that fame has left her empty.
“I’m alone, Brandon. Every night,” she’s heard saying in the clip through her tears. “And all these people will leave, right? They will leave and then I’ll be alone. And I go from everyone touching me all day and talking at me all day to total silence.”

…At one point, “I said to her, ‘Stefani, you may get the fame and success you are longing for one day, but it will not last and it will not make you happy,'” White told The Christian Post about Gaga, known by White as Stefani Germanotta, after she opened the Super Bowl LI Halftime show earlier this year.
“Whether she remembers what I said to her that day or not, I had seen enough of the trouble and sadness in the lives of students and families who had wealth and fame to know that it is not the path to happiness. As Jesus said in Matthew 16:26, ‘For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?'” he continued.
“Our generation seems to be particularly impressed by famous people, but fame can in fact bring far more sorrow than happiness into a life — as we recently saw in the life of Carrie Fisher, among many others.”
Lady Gaga’s life isn’t as perfect as it looks.
“I’m known for being larger than life,” she tweeted, “but really I’m just… #GagaFiveFootTwo.”
On Thursday, the pop star shared several teasers from her upcoming documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two. “I have seen a few short clips of the documentary but I decided not to watch it all the way through—or most of it, for that matter—because I can’t be objective about myself,” the 31-year-old “John Wayne” singer admits in one of the video clips. “So, you’ll see it before I do.”
It’s easy to understand why it would be hard for her to watch. In another scene, the singer cries, “I’m alone, every night. And all these people will leave, right? They will leave, and then I’ll be alone. And I go from everyone touching me all day and talking at me all day to total silence.”
