Lady Gaga let HBO follow her for part of her Monster Ball tour, and the results are set to be aired in a special documentary on the channel that will air on May 7. Here, is a glimpse of backstage life with Gaga at Madison Square Garden, where she tearfully recalls feeling like “a loser kid in high school.”
Gaga says: ‘I still sometimes feel like a loser kid in high school and I just have to pick myself up and tell myself that I’m a superstar every morning so that I can get through this day and be for my fans what they need for me to be.
‘I’m fighting for every kid that’s like me, that felt like I felt and feels like I still feel.
‘It hurts when I know how much authenticity and how much genuine blood is in my spirit and how much I feel like people don’t know that… cos they see wigs and lipstick and they shut down, cos they don’t understand.
