Lady Gaga assures worried fans that her recent absence only means good things.
The “Poker Face” singer wrote an open letter on Instagram Friday to announce that she has been creative “in a very special and private way” since 2022. Gaga, who won an Oscar for “A Star is Born” and recently wrapped the “Joker.” ” sequel, has certainly been busy.
“I wrote and produced a musical for a special project, I prepared for months developing my character for ‘Joker’, I filmed ‘Joker’ for many months (a very introspective moment), I have been running my start-up Haus Labs… and… working on editing the Chromatica Ball film,” Gaga wrote.
The Grammy winner included a still from the Chromatica Ball, her seventh headlining tour last year, confirming that a concert documentary is in the works. Gaga, who will star alongside Joaquin Phoenix in “Joker 2,” said working on side projects helped her recharge.
“For the first time in years… my love for making art, music, fashion and supporting my community has never been more fulfilling,” she wrote. “I hope you know that this time to myself has been extremely healing and recharging for my heart, mind, body and creativity.”
Gaga defended the benefits of “a personal life that’s just for me,” but acknowledged her die-hard fans “may feel differently” because she hasn’t “always been this private.” Gaga, who calls her fans “little monsters”, said her love for them will “never change”.
The singer has certainly earned a break after winning an Oscar in 2019 for “A Star Is Born,” accepting a beloved role alongside Phoenix in an early blockbuster, and being named co-chair of the Committee on the Arts and Humanities by President Joe Biden.
The 13-time Grammy winner recently told Wallpaper magazine that she’s “very interested” in “a life of solitude” and confessed that “it’s really nice to have time to be alone.” With a world-famous face and record-breaking music sales, he understandably appreciates privacy.
“Thank you for being willing to grow with me so I can change and transform with the community I love so much,” she wrote. “I hope you enjoy all the things I’ve been creating for you, and I hope this is a small reminder to you of my deep passion and commitment to art.”
“Joker: Folie à Deux” hits theaters in October 2024.
