There has been a lot going on behind the scenes when it comes to Lady Gaga's career and suffice it to say, she hasn't been thrilled with a lot of it. In a new rant on her website, the Celebrity Sightings In London - December 7, 2013There has been a lot going on behind the scenes when it comes to Lady Gaga's career and suffice it to say, she hasn't been thrilled with a lot of it.

In a new rant on her website, the pop star explained to her fans why her "Do What U Want" video was delayed and in the process, she pulled the curtain back to show them what has really been going on in the more personal part of her professional life.

Gaga wrote:

It is late because, just like with the Applause video unfortunately, I was given a week to plan and execute it. It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you. All my my most successful videos were planned over a period of time when I was rested and my creativity was honored. Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result. Millions of dollars are not enough for some people. They want billions. Then they need trillions. I was not enough for some people. They wanted more. I am very grateful to the photographers and designers who have always stood by me to make sure my fans are never aware of the things that happen behind the scenes, but unfortunately after my surgery I was too sick, too tired, and too sad to control the damage on my own. My label was not aware that this was going on. The next few months of ARTPOP will truly be its beginning. Because those who did not care about ARTPOP's success are now gone, and the dreams I have been planning can now come to fruition. Please forgive me that I did not foresee this coming, I never thought after all the years of hard work that those I called friends and partners would ever care so little at a time I needed them the most. Give me a chance to show you the meaning of seeing art all around you. Open your hearts to me again that I may show you the joy of us coming together through our talents, that we are stronger as a unit than when we are alone. Let me be for you the Goddess that I know I truly am, let me show you the visions that have been in my mind for two years. I love you. Forgive me monsters. Forgive me ARTPOP. You are my whole world.

She then commented on a fan's post, writing:

Some of you are friends to me more than people 5 ft from me. perhaps that's why its good for me to purge these feelings now. it doesn't feel food [sic] to stand under the spotlight smiling a fake smile. you have known me so well over these years, if i keep things from you i feel like nothing makes sense. thank you for making me happy everyday. i hope you will always leave a place in your heart for me to make you feel that way too.

Sounds like Gaga has been going through A LOT lately and it must have been really difficult to try to make music and smile for her fans when there was so much tough stuff going on behind the scenes.

Although Mother Monster does not mention him by name, some people are speculating that at least some of this is directed at her former manager, Troy Carter.

Regardless, it sounds like she's got it all sorted out now, so hopefully she can just get back to making music and devoting her time and energy to the things she's passionate about.
