Lady Gaga will be “taking a rest” for a little while, the pop star announced at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday.
“I’m going to take a rest. I don’t know how long,” Gaga said at a press conference for her upcoming Netflix doc “Gaga: Five Foot Two” when asked what the next steps in her career might look like.
“That doesn’t mean I won’t be creating,” she continued. “That doesn’t mean I don’t have some things up my sleeve that I’m not going to tell you today … [But] I’m looking forward to reflecting and slowing down for a moment and healing.”
The news comes after an extremely busy period in the pop star’s life and career, as documented in the film from director Chris Moukarbel.
“Five Foot Two” follows Gaga as she worked on her 2016 album “Joanne,” prepared for her Super Bowl halftime performance, filmed “American Horror Story” Season 6 and dealt with some personal struggles, including chronic pain.
Now, with all of that behind her, Gaga said she’s going to take a breather to look back on all that she’s accomplished.
“Doing the Super Bowl this year, as much as it was for the fans and as much it was to entertain the world … It was also for me,” she said. “It was like, I’m going to take this; I’m going to put this trophy on the top of Everest and do it for myself.”
“It’s almost like the Super Bowl and this film are like a hedge of protection around my legacy of the last 10 years,” she said.
