Lady Gaga Opens Up About Depression and Fame

(Radio.com) Lady Gaga was no stranger to the headlines in the year 2013. Her aggressive promotion of ARTPOP - which included a life-size Gaga doll and pop-up shops - as well as her much-discussed SNL performance with R. Kell, kept music fans and critics talking. But this time, Gaga has the floor.

Throughout her Harper's Bazaar cover story, Gaga opened up about her year and how's she's changed since she came onto the music scene, why she wants to perform in space and where she keeps all of her costumes.

"I'm actually not very different at all," she said of her rise to fame. "I work all day, do research, sketch my ideas, prepare for performances. My experience with fame has been the opposite: 'How can I stop this from changing me?'"

Gaga said she's more comfortable being herself now and that her fans have given her a new purpose: to remind them that she is one of them. She explained how she also learned to stand up for herself after her year of depression in 2013.

"Depression doesn't take away your talents-it just makes them harder to find. But I always find it. I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You just have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that's left. I'm lucky I found one little glimmer stored away," she said. More including the cover.
