The Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two follows the superstar over the course of a year, creating an intimate portrait of her inner life. The film takes a close look at the singer as she grapples with insecurities and the deafening silence of feeling totally alone — in the midst of all the vivid scenery, the glamorous attire, and the sensational music, we didn't realize the terrible toll it was taking on the artist.
Gaga has recently been posting clips of the #documentary on her Instagram page. In the clips, the singer waits patiently for a medical procedure, flies to the top of the NRG Stadium for her halftime show, and breaks down as she reveals her fears and hard truths that come with living the life of a public personality. In one particular clip, the singer, in tears, reveals the sadness that she grapples with on a daily basis:
"They will leave and I'll be home alone. I go from everyone touching me all day, and talking at me all day, to total silence."
The singer also revealed on Instagram that she'd only seen pieces of the documentary, but decided not to watch it all the way through because she can't be objective about herself.
Director Chris Mourkabel (Banksy Does New York) said of #GagaFiveFootTwo, "I had a rare opportunity to create a portrait of an artist with such an open heart and mind. I feel really lucky that Gaga trusted me and my vision."
#LadyGaga is currently in the midst of a world tour, supporting her latest number-one album, Joanne. She recently released a new single, titled The Cure, ahead of her tour during her headlining event at Coachella. The singer also wrapped filming back in June for the upcoming remake of #AStarIsBorn, due for release in September 2018.
Gaga: Five Foot Two is set to make its debut at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and will hit the streaming service on September 22, 2017.
