Lady Gaga explained the meaning behind her new song, featuring Beyonce, titled “Telephone”. She said that she fears suffocation and not just the physical kind.
She said that she has a hard time letting her hair down, figuratively and gave us an explanation of the song. She said, “Fear of suffocation – something that I have or fear is never being able to enjoy myself. Cause I love my work so much, I find it really hard to go out and have a good time.”
She added, “I don’t go to nightclubs. You don’t see pictures of me falling out of a club drunk. I don’t go – and that’s because I usually go and then, you know, a whiskey and a half into it, I got to get back to work.”
Shea also said that it’s not someone on the other end of the phone that’s so bothersome, but a person in her head telling her to work harder. She concluded, “That’s my fear – that the phone’s ringing and my head’s ringing. Whether it’s a telephone or it’s just the thoughts in your head, that’s another fear.”
