Lady Gaga Would 'Lash The Hell Out Of' Herself Over This Bad Habit

Lady Gaga has been a serious world-changer during the coronavirus crisis. Now, she's making some serious changes to her personal life.

The 34-year-old New Yorker recently raised over $127 million for pandemic relief efforts via her star-studded "One World: Together At Home" benefit concert. The big event came after her upcoming studio album "Chromatica" was pushed back indefinitely as a result of the pandemic itself. It is now set to release next week.

It was during a recent promotional interview that Gaga dropped a series of personal updates - ones that sound starkly different than the bizarre and boozy anthems of her past.

Drinking To 'Work Through The Pain'

The "Just Dance" singer told Apple Music's Zane Lowe that she's "flirted with the idea of sobriety."

"I'm not there yet, but I flirted with it throughout the album. It's something that came up as a result of me trying to work through the pain that I was feeling."

"But part of my healing process was going, 'Well, I can either lash the hell out of myself every day for continuing to drink, or I can just be happy that I'm still alive and keep going and feel good enough...I am good enough...I'm perfectly imperfect," Gaga said.

This 'Was The Most Bizarre, Beautiful Thing'

So for now, she's still figuring out the alcohol thing. But the GRAMMY winner proudly shared that she's already kicked another major vice in the meantime.

"I quit smoking. Whole time, not even one," she said.

"Quitting is so hard. It's hard, but you know what? I would sit on my porch and chain smoke all day."

"I smoked the whole way through making this record. And when we were done, I stopped. It was the most bizarre, beautiful thing that could have happened, that this music actually healed me."

A Star Is Born This Way

"Chromatica" will be Gaga's first studio album since October 2016's "Joanne." Her own music then hit the back burner when she began filming "A Star Is Born" in April 2017. This lead role alongside A-Lister Bradley Cooper would win her multiple trophies at the Oscar, GRAMMY, and Golden Globe Awards.

Needless to say, the woman who once wore a meat dress is still not trying to fit into any boxes or society-made molds. Referencing her 2011 song of the same title, she says, "I was born this way. This is how I am."

New Song With Ariana Grande Already Record-Breaking

"I hope that through this record, and I hope that through the conduit, that is me, that I can do whatever I can to just be a citizen of the world," she says of next week's "Chromatica."

Before the album got a new date, Californians reported that Gaga had put her already-spent marketing dollars to good use. The "Bad Romance" singer had placed encouragements to essential workers on the massive, interstate-lining billboards she'd previously reserved for "Chromatica" promotion.

Her new single "Rain On Me," a collaboration Ariana Grande released earlier on Friday. It is already reported to be "the fastest song in history to enter the top 10 of US iTunes by doing so in less than 25 minutes."
