Lady Gaga Reveals Documentary Details and Song Leaker Going To Jail
Moreover, Gaga discussed the documentary she's been working on, which encompasses the making of her upcoming album ARTPOP, her hip injury and surgery, and behind-the-scenes tour footage.
As first revealed in tweets from last Christmas and confirmed today, Gaga is collaborating with distinctive photographer/director Terry Richardson on the feature film, which is due out next year. He traveled the world alongside Gaga, capturing the highs and lows.
It seems Richardson is not the only collaborator on the film. Some of the footage that Gaga shot with New York performance artist Marina Abramović will be incorporated into the doc, and Gaga notes that it will be very, well, naked.
"That's how I work, I work naked and smoking and drinking and writing," Gaga told AMP. "I like to feel free."
Speaking on Abramović, Gaga had only positive things to say regarding the artist, who supposed "sobered [her] up a lot."
"She saved my life," Gaga said. "I felt polluted for a while by fame. My time spent with her she spent cleaning my spirit and my house."
As for less uplifting topics in the Mother Monster's world, it seems the hacker who leaked "Applause" a week ahead of its scheduled Aug. 19th release date will be going to jail… which doesn't make her feel great.
While the leak had Gaga and her team working all night to release the song officially via iTunes, she said she's pleased with the amount of spins it has received.
