It’s a well-known fact that all performers and celebrities go through internal personal struggles that they don’t share with their fans and the public. However, it is still shocking when these celebrities come out and tell the truth.

Recently, pop singer and world icon, Lady Gaga, announced her documentary about her road to performing at the Super Bowl, called Gaga: Five Foot Two, was to be released on September 22nd. Gaga also tweeted later that the documentary would highlight the physical and emotional challenges she had to endure on her way to the Super Bowl, specifically her Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a disorder defined by chronic musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and other mental issues or blocks. Millions suffer from this disorder around the world, but it currently has no cure. It is known to bring slight pain in some cases, but crippling pain in others, and Gaga reportedly suffers from the worse end of the spectrum.

On September 14th, Gaga tweeted out that she was devastated but could not make it to her Rock to Rio concert due to her immense pain. Gaga continues in her tweet, “I would do anything 4 u but I have to take care of my body right now.” Gaga was then rushed to the hospital but claimed to be “in good hands w/ the very best doctors.” Most fans were disappointed but understood. They would rather miss the concert than have their favorite star be crippled further by overexerting herself.

After a few days, on Monday, September 18th, 2017, Gaga announced that the European leg of her Joanne tour will be postponed until further notice due to health issues. She is currently under the constant supervision of the world’s best doctors but is receiving some heat from some angry fans. Some fans irrationally claim that she is being dramatic and simply faking all of the pain and Fibromyalgia simply to get out of touring. To respond to this, Gaga says:

“If you knew me, you would know this couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love most in the world: performing for my fans.”

Gaga is currently in a world of pain, and while most fans are supportive, these angry fans won’t do any good. The only thing that fans can do to help her right now is to understand and believe that Gaga is doing the most a human possibly can to deliver for her fans.
