Lady Gaga has taken to her Little Monster website to apologize to her fans after her latest album ARTPOP has seen disappointing sales.
Mother Monster further explains her new music video for “Do What U Want” is “late” because ”I was given a week to plan and execute it. It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you. All my most successful videos were planned over a period of time when I was rested and my creativity was honored.”
And although she does not name who, Gaga goes on to say that she was “betrayed” by people who “gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result. Millions of dollars are not enough for some people. They want billions. Then they need trillions. …” Gaga says, adding that after her hip surgery in February, “… I was too sick, too tired, and too sad to control the damage on my own.”
Leaving her diehard fans with a promise, LG pens, “The next few months of ARTPOP will truly be its beginning. Because those who did not care about ARTPOP’s success are now gone, and the dreams I have been planning can now come to fruition. Please forgive me that I did not foresee this coming, I never thought after all the years of hard work that those I called friends and partners would ever care so little at a time I needed them the most. Give me a chance to show you the meaning of seeing art all around you.”
