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.
“All my insecurities are gone, I don’t feel insecure about who am I as a woman,” she says in the doc.
She tells Variety, “I made a decision really early on that I wanted Chris (Moukarbel, the film’s director) to have full access to me and my life. I just blocked the cameras out so they could capture the realities of my life.”
Moukarbel’s raw look at the global superstar also chronicled her battle with fibromyalgia and chronic pain, stemming from a hip injury she suffered three years ago that eventually cut her European tour short. She hopes by revealing the invisible illness it helps raise awareness and tackle ignorance about the disease.
“To anyone that doesn’t believe in fibromyalgia: I dare you to spend five minutes in my body on a day when I’m in pain, and then try and say it again,” she said of her condition.
