Lady Gaga discusses the crafting of her third studio album ARTPOP, her relationship with Elton John and how fame has changed her in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres to be broadcast on Monday.

“Fame has not been the easiest thing for me,” Lady Gaga said. “And it's because, even though my first record was called The Fame, I really wasn't in it for the money and attention no matter what cost. And I think that maybe the theatrics and my penchant for entertaining people could be better described by me being an old soul and somebody who loves show business.”

Lady Gaga said that ARTPOP is an escape from the pain she went through as an artist.

“Getting past level one in the record business is basically the scariest thing that ever happened to me,” she said.

She added that Elton John was like a father to her.

He's my family,” Lady Gaga said. (A clip from the interview is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
