Lady Gaga felt like a 'money making machine'

Lady Gaga felt like a 'money making machine'

Lady Gaga nearly quit music because she felt like she had become a "money making machine".

The 'Pokerface' hitmaker admits there was a point where she felt "overworked" and decided to put her happiness before her career.

She shared: "I have had to make decisions. 'Why am I unhappy? Okay, Stefani (her real name), Gaga, hybrid-person. Why are you unhappy? Why is it that you wanted to quit music years ago?'

"I feel sad when I'm overworked, and that I just become a money making machine, and that my passion and my creativity take a back seat; that makes me unhappy. It feels shallow. I have a lot more to offer than my image."

However, the 29-year-old singer changed her mind once she "slowly but surely" started to remember who she is as a person.

Speaking as part of the Emotion Revolution project, she added: "Slowly but surely, I remembered who I am. Then you go home and you look in the mirror and you're like 'Yes, I can go to bed with you every night.'

"Cause that person? I know that person. That person has balls. That person has integrity. That person just doesn't say yes."
