Lady Gaga makes announcement at Toronto Film Festival regarding music career

Ok, all you Little Monsters, do you want the good news or the bad news first? The good news is Lady Gaga has television appearances and a movie coming out soon! The bad news is that she will be taking an extended break from music for awhile.

While supporting her new original documentary film, “Gaga: Five Foot Two,” that premiered at The Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend, Gaga announced that she is going to “slow down for a moment for some healing.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gaga stressed, “I’m going to take a rest. It doesn’t mean I won’t be creating. It doesn’t mean I don’t have some things up my sleeve.”

The full-length film chronicles her life, February’s Super Bowl performance and her struggle with chronic pain. Gaga was emotional when talking to reporters about her chronic pain and other health concerns. “It’s hard,” she said, “but it’s liberating too.”

In addition to the film festival, Gaga also performed a couple concerts while in town. “When this tour is over I will take a little downtime from myself, and then I’ll get back to doing what I love,” she said. Gaga’s tour runs through Dec. 18.

Considering her massive success, completing three albums in the past four years, coupled with a stunning Super Bowl Performance in February, the rest is well deserved. “This is my most important and favorite thing I do, is to entertain people and to make them happy,” she said. With the combined success of her Super Bowl performance and revealing documentary, “Gaga 5’2″ this has got to be the peak of the singer’s extraordinary rise to fame. She calls both a “hedge of protection on my legacy of the past ten years. It’s a nice place to be, because I’m surrounded by wonderful people. I just am excited to spend some time reflecting on that past ten years and getting excited about what I want to create next.”

A remake of the original Barbara Streisand movie, “A Star is Born,” with Lady Gaga and co-star Bradley Cooper has just finished filming. It is about a movie star that helps a young singer/actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral. It is expected to hit theaters September 2018.
