Lady Gaga says she was closing to calling quits on her music career after she made ‘ARTPOP’.
The singer told NME that she had a crisis of confidence after unleashing the record in 2013.
The album – Gaga’s third – didn’t perform as well as her previous albums when it came to sales.
The US star said: “I was just having a really depressed time in my life where wasn’t able to see my own ability or my own talent.
“And when you lose grasp of those sorts of things, you can just spiral.
“But you know, to the world ‘quitting music’ means one thing and to me its means another. I meant to giving putting out music, as opposed to just doing it for myself, which what makes me really and truly happy.”
Gaga released her fourth album ‘Joanne’ last week and it is expected to reach No.1 in the US.
