In an interview with E! News on the set of American Horror Story: Hotel, Gaga revealed how her fame has essentially put her in a glass box that has been hard to break out of. "I do know isolation," she told them, "because I'm famous and it's hard to go be normal all the time. And when you meet people in public, 99 percent of the time, people aren't that interested in really getting to know me. There's sort of a wall between us that they think something of me that I'm not. I'm really just a human being that makes this...stuff."
She's too humble to say it, but by "stuff," she means incredible, genius-infused works of musical art.
She also explains that the one thing she wants people to take away from her being on AHS is for people to know the importance of caring (really CARING) for the people you work with, no matter what industry you're in. "It's important to work hard, and making money is important to survive," she explained, "but what's more important is that we support one another through the challenges of life."
Being on AHS has really helped her feel more "normal" because she gets to interact face-to-face with people every day, who care about her, and care about making sure she feels as normal as possible.
When she recalls the experience of first arriving on set, she says, "I wanted to get to know them [the cast], and I wanted them to feel comfortable with me as a human being and a person, and know that I was going to be available and open to them, and that I wasn't going to come on set and be like, 'Where's my make up?! Where's my trailer?!' and be a huge bitch and make this The Gaga Show. The most important thing to me was that that did not happen."
Mission accomplished! When they chatted with her co-stars, they had nothing but nice things to say about her.
