Lady Gaga admits she hid from her fans during the recovery of her surgery

Lady Gaga returned to the stage in a big way this past Sunday at the iTunes Festival and performed a 70 minute set packed with new material from her upcoming album ‘ARTPOP’.

What with 70 minutes of new material, twerking, costume changes, dancing and of course singing you wouldn’t think the star had recently had an operation on her hip.

In a recent interview with The Guardian before her headline show opening The iTunes Festival – which if you missed the performance you can still view it here – Lady Gaga spoke about how she coped during the recovery of her operation.

The star was forced to cancel the remaining dates of her ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour because she required an operation on her hip.


Since returning to the music scene she admitted that after the operation she hid from her fans because she didn’t want her Little Monsters to think of her in a different way.

“I hid in my house. I hid a lot… to preserve my image as a superstar to my fans. I don’t mean I am a superstar, I mean that they only ever see me at my best. And it really drove me crazy.”


The superstar went on to say: “So I’ve really had to make more of an effort to go out more. I mean, can you imagine what it’s like not to feel real wind? Honestly, I hadn’t felt real wind for years!”

Lady Gaga also spoke about how far she went to stay out of the public eye: “I would be indoors all day and then I’d get in a car in a garage and then drive to another garage and get out and rehearse and then do it again, from country to country, and never walk outside.”

Gaga added: “I remember some of the longest walks I had were from the car to the aeroplane on the tarmac.”
