    Lady Gaga for Variety: this year is "the most pivotal year of my career"

    Lady Gaga is five-foot two inches tall and still growing.
    “I’m actually five-foot three and three quarters,” she clarified at Saturday’s MTV Movie and TV Awards.
    The New York-born pop magnet, whose “Gaga: Five Foot Two” won best music documentary at the MTV event, has been largely out of the public eye since ending her Joanne World Tour in January, which grossed over $95 million in ticket sales.
    Sitting backstage after the MTV taping, draped in black, she tells Variety she’s been holed up in the studio, readying for what could be the most pivotal year of her career, which will see her first major movie role in “A Star Is Born” opposite Bradley Cooper, a two-year Las Vegas residency that kicks off in December, and oh yeah, she’s working on a new album.
    “I’m just always making music, I’ve always been that way and I think you see in ‘Five Foot Two’ that I’m a studio rat,” the 32 year-old says.
    Netflix and Live Nation’s cinéma vérité-style doc, released in September, featured Gaga in her most vulnerable state yet, from rehearsing a high-wire performance at the Super Bowl to more down to earth moments like cooking at home, sitting poolside, topless, skewering “bulls-t” men and having a meltdown on the set of “American Horror Story.”
    “All my insecurities are gone, I don’t feel insecure about who am I as a woman,” she says in the doc.
    She tells Variety, “I made a decision really early on that I wanted Chris (Moukarbel, the film’s director) to have full access to me and my life. I just blocked the cameras out so they could capture the realities of my life.”
    Moukarbel’s raw look at the global superstar also chronicled her battle with fibromyalgia and chronic pain, stemming from a hip injury she suffered three years ago that eventually cut her European tour short. She hopes by revealing the invisible illness it helps raise awareness and tackle ignorance about the disease.
    “To anyone that doesn’t believe in fibromyalgia: I dare you to spend five minutes in my body on a day when I’m in pain, and then try and say it again,” she said of her condition.
    Moukarbel, who has directed a handful of docs, including HBO’s “Banksy Does New York,” said his intention was never to make a movie about fame. “I think it happens to be a documentary about an artist who is famous. She has an opportunity to do a lot of things that other people haven’t. At the same time it also comes with all of these other conditions that she has to work against to make her art.”
    “I wouldn’t call it a compromise,” Gaga says of her immersive lifestyle, “It’s more of a special gift called passion. And I’m just so passionate and what keeps me going is being inside the vortex of my art and creating and making things that are not only meaningful to me but hopefully to other people.“
    “When I’m with Tony Bennett, and we hang out, we always joke that we never work a day. Because we love what we do.”

    Lady Gaga’s company, Ate My Heart Inc., is currently moving forward to secure a trademark for a new brand of cosmetics called “Haus Beauty.”

    Lady Gaga is back in the studio with Boys Noize & BloodPop

    Get ready, Little Monsters!
    Lady Gaga has been hard at work in the studio crafting new music for a variety of upcoming projects. While not alot is known about the future releases, we can be certain that Mother Monster never disappoints! 
    On Wednesday evening, German electronic music producer and Dj 'Boys Noize' tweeted this, prompting an exchange of tweets between the pair:
    But things were resolved quickly, as explained in a reply from Gaga:
    And finally, Boys Noize replied, teasing the new music:
    Beautiful weirdness? Sounds very intriguing! It is unclear what project their music is for, but chances are the pair are hard at work for Lady Gaga's upcoming sixth studio album, dubbed "LG6". Other confirmed collaborators include Dj White Shadow & Nick Monson. 
    But it doesn't end there. 
    On Thursday night, BloodPop® posted a picture of Gaga in a recording studio on his Instagram story. Following his work on various tracks from her fifth studio album "Joanne", it was revealed several months ago that the pair were collaborating for a new track said to be BloodPop® featuring Gaga (as opposed to being a track with Gaga as the lead artist), so it is likely she was re-recording vocals and polishing the upcoming single. We aren't sure when it is due, but is safe to assume the wait shouldn't be too long as BloodPop® has liked a selection of tweets from fans asking about the track. 
    Check out the photo of the pair in the studio below!
