Lady Gaga on fame: 'I miss people'

In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Lady Gaga opened up about the down-sides of superstardom. One of the worst parts about fame? That she can't have normal conversations with people.

"I miss people. I miss, you know, going anywhere and meeting a random person and saying, 'Hi,' and having a conversation about life," Gaga said. "I love people."

When the 30-year-old singer, born Stefani Germanotta, leaves her home, she finds that people unfairly feel ownership over her Gaga persona.

"I'm very acutely aware that once I cross that property line, I'm not free anymore. As soon as I go out in the world, I belong, in a way, to everyone else," she said. "It's legal to follow me, it's legal to stalk me on the beach, I can't call the police or ask them to leave."

Gaga said that the album Joanne, inspired by her late aunt, was a response to the need to be authentically Stefani. "I said, 'Well, if I can't be free out there, I can be free in here," she said, gesturing to her heart.

The revealing interview also touched on the demise of Gaga's engagement to Taylor Kinney, her boyfriend of five years. The musician talked about how "women love very hard."

"We just love with everything we have. And sometimes I don't know that that love is met with the type of dignity that we wish it would be met with," she said. "You know, we're not trying to make you less of a man. We just want you to love us as deeply and as wholesomely and as fully as we love you."
