Lady Gaga reckons with the grueling demands of pop stardom in the new trailer for Gaga: Five Foot Two.

"I have chased this pain for five years", Gaga says in the new preview, as footage of the 31-year-old in tears over her condition flashes onscreen. The singer goes on to say that it is her fans who have helped keep her going all of these years.

Yet as much as her acting career seems to be flourishing, Gaga the human is hard enough work with its high demand for performance.

Unlike many celebrities in this day and age that make their backup carry the heavy load, Gaga actually sings, dances, and may even have a few stunts up her sleeve when she decides to tour. Last Tuesday, the singer posted a Tweet that she was struggling with her pain condition.

"Paranoia, fear, body pain, anxiety", Gaga replies, referencing her illness.

Lady Gaga has always been theatrical.

"It is complicated and hard to explain and we are trying to figure it out". Fans were told to keep their existing tickets until the dates were rescheduled, according to a statement from concert promoter Live Nation. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: "performing for my fans." wrote Gaga.

Gaga: Five Foot Two will be available on Netflix worldwide from September 22.

To my fans, I love you so much.

"I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more".

Director Chris Moukarbel is clearly determined to convey at least the feeling of an up-close-and-personal look at his subject and does elicit some notable comments, such as Gaga talking about being badmouthed by Madonna, who labeled her music "reductive".
