Singer says being ditched by Island was the 'worst day' of her life
Lady Gaga has said that the music video for her latest single is about the day she was dropped by her first label Island Def Jam.
Speaking to E! News the singer said that the 14-minute video, which can be seen below, is about the “worst day” of her life.
She said: “It was one of the worst days of my life and it happened quite quickly, but in my mind, when I think back on that period of my life, it all happened very slow. It is my personal way of seeing things.” She added:
If you give up after something like that, you were never destined to be an entertainer.
Gaga continued: “I love obstacles. To marry your obstacles mean I, the artist, wholeheartedly accept everything you throw at me. I am destined to struggle, I am destined to write music about the struggle, and I accept it willingly.”
The singer sent the clip to a 17-year-old fan who has been lobbying against bullying at a school in Canada. In the video, Gaga told Etobicoke School Of The Arts pupil Jacques St Pierre: “I just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you for being such a strong advocate of the LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender] community in your school.”
