Lady Gaga: Being a woman "ain't easy"

Lady Gaga thinks being a woman "ain't easy".

The 30-year-old pop star thinks all women share many of the same life struggles and has admitted the situation is pulling her "apart".

She reflected: "Many women, no matter their race, colour, religion, go through the same issues with men, bodies, minds. A lot of women shut down, as they don't feel heard. It ain't easy. I know it is pulling me apa

LADY Gaga thinks being a woman "ain't easy".

The 30-year-old pop star thinks all women share many of the same life struggles and has admitted the situation is pulling her "apart".

She reflected: "Many women, no matter their race, colour, religion, go through the same issues with men, bodies, minds. A lot of women shut down, as they don't feel heard. It ain't easy. I know it is pulling me apart."

Gaga - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - revealed she touches on these issues in one song on her much-anticipated new album 'Joanne', which is a tribute to her father's sister, who died from lupus.

She told the Sunday Times newspaper: "This is about an unconditional love women should have for each other."

Gaga said she is determined to promote a brand of feminism that does not support in-fighting between women.

She explained: "It is quite simple. I'd like women to hear the song and, when they walk into a bar and see a girl they've never met, they just go, 'Hey girl!' And that means, I know. We're in this bar, and these men are foolish, but I got you..."

Gaga also conceded that her new record is less naive than ones she has previously released.

She said: "I'm older and in a strong state of reality, trying, with statements about positivity and love, to speak in a way that is not too naive, perhaps, in a way where people who live in this world can relate to what I'm saying, as opposed to feeling it's la-di-da... It's about using words and allowing the pain I feel to exist on the record, and not to hide it with anything. I'll say that.

"My mother cried when I started recording [this]. I asked 'What's wrong?', and she said, 'There's so much pain in your voice now.'"
