Gaga will open the MTV VMAs ceremony with a special performance this weekend

Lady Gaga has said that she is “married” to her loneliness.

The ‘You And I’ singer has said that she doesn’t mind being a lonely person, as she is an artist, and therefore supposed to be alone in life.

During an interview on Indian chat show Most Desirable One, reports MTV, Gaga explained that she does feel lonely when touring but “I am supposed to be, I am an artist.” She added: “We wallow in loneliness and solitude our whole lives in search of the answer to hundreds and millions of questions that run through my mind.”

The ‘Edge Of Glory’ star continued:

Yes I’m lonely, but I’m married to my loneliness. I would die without it and I could never be reborn.
