(Newser) – Here's a fun glimpse into what it's like to be Lady Gaga: Her latest video, for her R. Kelly duet "Do What U Want" off her ARTPOP album, has been delayed, and her melodramatic apology to fans, per the Los Angeles Times, includes these lines:

  • "It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you." (Her explanation: She was given just one week to make the video, which wasn't enough time.)
  • "All my my most successful videos were planned over a period of time when I was rested and my creativity was honored. Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health."

  • "Give me a chance to show you the meaning of seeing art all around you. Open your hearts to me again that I may show you the joy of us coming together through our talents."
  • "I love you. Forgive me monsters. Forgive me ARTPOP. You are my whole world."
  • "Let me be for you the Goddess that I know I truly am."
It's just the latest trouble for ARTPOP, which, the Hollywood Reporter notes, did not perform well in sales upon its debut (week one total: 258,000 copies). The missive implies Gaga has parted ways with a number of people who supposedly "betrayed" her, Rolling Stone adds, but it's not clear who. (She did split with her longtime manager in November.)

Artistic angst is never easy and the pressure from the media. Of course when your as successful and as well known as Lady Gaga someone's going to buy your stuff, no matter how crappy. I give her Kudo's for caring about her art.

In todays world the competition is so tight that you can't take brakes because if you do IT happens. Associating with right people has big impact as well.
