Lady Gaga on Her MTV Documentary Win and Reinventing Herself Through the Pain – Exclusive Interview

Lady Gaga is five-foot two inches tall and still growing.

“I’m actually five-foot three and three quarters,” she clarified at Saturday’s MTV Movie and TV Awards.

The New York-born pop magnet, whose “Gaga: Five Foot Two” won best music documentary at the MTV event, has been largely out of the public eye since ending her Joanne World Tour in January, which grossed over $95 million in ticket sales.

Sitting backstage after the MTV taping, draped in black, she tells Variety she’s been holed up in the studio, readying for what could be the most pivotal year of her career, which will see her first major movie role in “A Star Is Born” opposite Bradley Cooper, a two-year Las Vegas residency that kicks off in December, and oh yeah, she’s working on a new album.

“I’m just always making music, I’ve always been that way and I think you see in ‘Five Foot Two’ that I’m a studio rat,” the 32 year-old says.

Netflix and Live Nation’s cinéma vérité-style doc, released in September, featured Gaga in her most vulnerable state yet, from rehearsing a high-wire performance at the Super Bowl to more down to earth moments like cooking at home, sitting poolside, topless, skewering “bulls-t” men and having a meltdown on the set of “American Horror Story.”
