Lady GaGa Tony Bennett

As Billboard’s Woman of the Year, it’s fair to say that Lady GaGa has enjoyed a pretty successful 2015, which has seen the ‘Born This Way; singer back on top. But the 29-year-old has revealed that just one year ago she considered quitting music altogether, after feeling as if she’d been written off.

Lady GagaBillboard’s Woman of the Year, Lady Gaga.

Speaking to Billboard as part of their Woman of the Year cover story, Gaga said: “At the end of 2014, my stylist asked, ‘Do you even want to be a pop star anymore?’ I looked at him and I go, ‘You know, if I could just stop this train right now, today, I would. I just can’t. [But] I need to get off now because I’m going to die.’”

Lady Gaga: 'Elton John And Tony Bennett Stood By Me After Artpop Flop'


Lady GaGa Tony Bennett

The pop superstar initially scored a chart hit with her third studio project, but it received mixed reviews and suffered a large drop in sales after its first week of release, prompting some critics to deem the album a failure.

Gaga hit back at the criticism, insisting detractors simply failed to understand the concept of Artpop, and now she reveals her close pals Tony and Elton were among the only industry friends who offered her their support and encouragement.

"There is nobody more bada** than Tony Bennett," she tells Billboard magazine. "That man is a part of the history of music in a way that is extremely powerful, and he taught me to stay true to who I am, to not let anybody exploit me.

Lady GaGa Tony Bennett

The ladies were among the honourees at the Columbus Citizens Foundation Gala, where they were presented with the organisation's humanitarian award for their work with their Born This Way Foundation. The singer, real name Stefani Germanotta, founded the non-profit with her mum in 2011 to empower youths and tackle bullying.

Gaga admitted the event was all the more special for her family because they have been closely involved in the Columbus Citizens Foundation, which provides support for Italian-Americans, since she was a child.

"I've been spending time at the Columbus Citizens Foundation since I was 14 years old," she told America's ABC News shortly before the gala. "I was a little girl and my mum and dad were involved, and my father was on the advisory board to help raise money for young Italian immigrants to go to grade school, middle school and college. It's a place that I remember fondly that was all about family and community and taking care of each other...

Lady Gaga Wants To Be 'the Next Iron Maiden'


Lady GaGa Iron Maiden Madonna Tony Bennett

Lady GaGa wants to be ''the next Iron Maiden''.

The 29-year-old singer has hit out at people who compare her to music legend Madonna, saying she'd prefer people liken her to the heavy metal band as she sees them as ''one of the greatest rock bands in history''.

She said: ''They're one of the greatest rock bands in history, in my opinion. Some people really don't know the importance of metal and the scope of it. Those guys were filling stadiums, and they still are. And it's because of the culture of the music, the poetry that's so powerful, that whenever the fans come together they unite in the essence of what Iron Maiden is all about. I always used to say to people, when they would say, 'Oh, she's the next Madonna.' No, I'm the next Iron Maiden.''
