Lady GaGa Says She Is "Going To Take A Rest" From Music

At the Toronto Film Festival promoting her new Netflix film Gaga 5'2", the single revealed she is "going to take a rest" from the industry, and wants to "slow down for a moment, for some healing." Related: Lady GaGa Leaves Her Nip Out For V Magazine! While the Just Dance musician is going to lay low, she won't be out of the spotlight entirely. "It doesn't mean I won't be creating. It doesn't mean I don't have some things up my sleeve." As we reported, last month, the A Star Is Born actress told Entertainment Weekly she recently "started writing" and has "a lot of ideas and a lot of things I want to create." Looking back, the 31-year-old cites her 2017 Super Bowl performance as a significant milestone in her career. "This is my most important and favorite thing I do, is to entertain people and to make them happy." In the documentary, GaGa documents her struggle with chronic pain, and the toll it takes on her physical and emotional health. Director Chris Moukarbel found it difficult yet necessary to capture the artist at her most vulnerable. He said: "It was incredibly hard, on a basic fundamental human level, to be near someone experiencing pain like that. There's nothing you can do, beyond filming... I felt I needed to continue to roll. She was very aware of people struggling with similar chronic pain. She's not even sure how to deal with it." However, LG doesn't want your pity, and believes pain has artistic value. "There's an element and a very strong piece of me that believes pain is a microphone. My pain does me no good unless I transform it into something that is." [Image via Euan Cherry/WENN.].....»»

Selena Gomez & Francia Raisa Open Up About The "Life Or Death" Kidney Transplant In Emotional Interview

As we previously reported, the duo sat down with Savannah Guthrie to talk about the singer's recent kidney transplant. In a short teaser, we saw the Wolves artist explain how her BFF/kidney donor actually saved her life amid her Lupus battle. Video: Listen to Selly's Collab With DJ Marshmello HERE! In the first segment, Selly fought tears as she opened up about her "life or death" situation: "I had arthritis. My kidneys were shutting down. My mentality was just to keep going." And she was just weeks away from dialysis, a treatment to help purify the blood when the kidneys aren't working. As her best friend and roommate, Francia saw first-hand the pain Selena was in. Recalling the moment when Selena told her about needing a transplant, she shared: "One day she came home, and she was emotional. I hadn't asked anything. I knew that she hadn't been feeling well. She couldn't open a water bottle one day and she chucked it and just started crying. And she goes, ‘I don't know what to do. The list is seven to ten years long.' And it just vomited out of me. I was like, ‘Of course I'll get tested.'" The Dear White People actress went through the full evaluations to see if she'd be a match, completing a process that usually takes about six months in a single day because of the "emergency" situation. Selena knew it wasn't likely, but: "The fact that she was a match, I mean, that's unbelievable." Of course it doesn't make the surgery any less scary. Francia revealed she had to write her own will beforehand, even adding her mom was hesitant about her decision, but "she loves Selena and so she was torn." Related: Selena & Justin Bieber's Friendship Sparks Backlash The day of the transplant wasn't easy either. Following the surgery, the singer was starting to rest when she felt an intense pain: "I was freaking out. It was a six-hour surgery that they had to do on me, ad the normal kidney process is actually two hours. Apparently one of the arteries had flipped. I'm very thankful that there are people who know what to do in that situation." In the months following the process, the 25-year-old confessed she is feeling so much healthier: "As soon as I got the kidney transplant, my arthritis went away. My lupus —there's about a 3-5 percent chance it'll ever come back. My blood pressure is better. My energy, my life has been better." The two friends hope to raise awareness by opening up about their journey together: "I just hope that this inspires people to feel good. To know that there is really good people in the world." You can watch the emotional interview (below)! The second and final part of their interview will air Tuesday, October 31 on TODAY! [Image via Instagram.].....»»

On Sunday night, the pop superstar announced she would be postponing the European leg of her Joanne World Tour due to suffering from severe physical pain. According to a statement from LiveNation, the performer "remains under the care of expert medical professionals" who recommended she postpone her tour, which was supposed to kick off in Barcelona, Spain on September 21. Related: GaGa Is 'Going To Take A Rest' From Music The statement went on to say that the 31-year-old plans to spend the next seven weeks working with professionals to "heal from this and past traumas that still affect her daily life," which have manifested in the form of physical pain. GaGa herself addressed fans on Instagram, sharing a more personal update about the "complicated and difficult" situation surrounding her physical and mental health. Writing to fans saying she wasn't just being dramatic, the Born This Way singer shared a photo of herself holding rosary beads and praying, writing in the caption: "As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference... I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans." Sounds like she's really going through something. Sending love her way! GaGa's six-week stint is being postponed until early 2018. Read her full post (below). I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word "suffer" not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I'm being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn't be further from the truth. I'm a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.A post shared by xoxo, Gaga (@ladygaga) on Sep 18, 2017 at 12:01am PDT [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Russell Brand Confesses All About Battling Sex, Drugs, & Katy Perry — Read His Candid Interview!

Russell Brand has come a long way since his days of battling addiction.

In a candid new interview with Us Weekly, the comedian said reliving his encounters with heroin — which began [...] Russell Brand has come a long way since his days of battling addiction. While he'll never forget the downward spiral of his younger years, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor doesn't like to think about his drug abusing past. In a candid new interview with Us Weekly, the comedian said reliving his encounters with heroin -- which began at just 19 years old -- is too dangerous to dwell on. Related: American Idol Expands Budget Thanks To Katy Perry's Paycheck! The father-of-one, who is 14 years sober, confessed: "I can't think about it too much because I start to miss it. If you're in pain, psychological pain, you feel like you have a knot in your tummy. If pain is a fist, heroin dives into it, opens it up and relaxes you. It feels so beautiful. It feels like a cuddle, like comfort, like being in your mother's arms. It's so sweet and perfect." But the euphoric sensation doesn't last long. After getting hooked on the drug, Brand said his world was starting to unravel -- he was already "smoking too much, drinking too much, doing cocaine, taking quite a lot of acid and looking at too much porn." Soon, the comedian was all alone, with nothing in his life except the drugs he was addicted to. He explained: "There were terrible, terrible moments of loneliness in a flat where all I had were drugs. That was all I needed. I had a job at MTV. It went. I had a radio show. It went. Everything was going. My friends left me. Girlfriends left me. It was very scary." Yet the cycle continued. The 42-year-old said that heroin was the only thing holding his life together for a period of four years, until his then-manager and friend Chip Sommers stepped in to help. Related: PartyNextDoor Arrested On Drug Possession Charges After years of "getting into trouble with the police for shoplifting and public disturbances," Brand's friend intervened before it was too late. He added: "Chip Sommers said, ‘If you keep doing this, within six months, you'll be in prison, a lunatic asylum or dead.' In retrospect, he was right. I was six months away from a lot more trouble. I got out before I got too desperate." But drugs weren't the only vice overpowering the performer. Brand admitted that getting clean from heroin brought out another insatiable vice -- sex addiction: "The situation got out of hand when I was clean. If you don't deal with the source, the condition will migrate and morph and attach to something else." Thankfully, the Brit got his addictions under control by enlisting in a 12-step program with a community of mentors to help guide him. Related: Aaron Carter Leaves Rehab After Just Two Weeks Now, happily married with a one-year-old daughter, Brand hopes to help others struggling with his own book Recovery: Freedom for Our Addictions. Ch-ch-check out more of Brand's interview (below) on the struggles to his recovery, his marriage to Katy Perry, being a father, and more! On the biggest hurdles of recovery: "Recognizing you have a problem and being willing to change your perspective. Most people don't think that they have a problem. We've been trained to live in pain. To get up, work all the time, be in s--t relationships. The biggest challenge is going, ‘Hold on a minute, I don't want to do that. I'm not going to.' And it's not about being a selfish person. It's about listening to your feelings and responding to your feelings." On his biggest vices: "Drugs then sex then caring too much about other people's opinion of me. Drugs are just the obvious one. If someone is a crack addict or a heroin addict, they get into problems real quickly. But if you're obsessed with what other people think about you or you're obsessed with social media, it consumes your life." On hitting rock bottom: "Rock bottom, I believe, is the point where you say, ‘I can't do this anymore' and you start going upward. I had terrible moments of self harm. I was doing a stand up show in Scotland. On stage, I broke a bottle and cut myself. Then, I got into a fight with security and was thrown through the door. I had to get stitches in my leg and the doctors said if the cut had been one inch to the left, they would have had to amputate my leg from the knee because it would have done major arterial damage. There is still a scar there to remind me." On how he's changed since being married to Katy: "I've changed a lot in the last five years. I don't compare my relationships now to previous relationships out of respect to my present wife and to Katy Perry. I think I'm an easier person to be with now. I'm also in a very different situation. I'm dependent on my wife. In relationships, there is always going to be a level of dependency. But I try not to project my problems onto other people and perhaps I've not always been like that. " On how fatherhood has affected him: "It has made me recognize that what I want and what I need is not important. It's what she wants and what she needs. That's a good thing because I can be a very self-obsessed guy." On the birth of his daughter: "She was so beautiful. She came out perfect. It was like a drug in that it changed my consciousness in a way that I could not have anticipated. By the time I held her, I felt like an animal in a cave. I felt such strong feelings of protectiveness and love that I didn't know what to do. I didn't want anyone near her. The feelings were extremely intense and to be honest they haven't really gone away." [Image via WENN.].....»»
