Lady Gaga recently shared the music video for her song "Joanne." The singer could not hold back her tears while singing the lyrics to her song.
Before Gaga sung in the almost five-minute music video, she first revealed that "Joanne" was about her dad's sister who died at the age of 19 due to lupus. Gaga's father was only 15 when his sister passed away. At one point in the clip, Gaga was unable to stop her tears from falling.
Gaga released "Joanne" as part of her fifth studio album of the same name last year. However, the version in the music video has been stripped down. Gaga's voice is only accompanied by the gentle sound of the piano. The song "Joanne" follows Gaga's other track "The Cure," which was premiered at Coachella last year.
Lady Gaga Tests Borderline Positive For Lupus
Last year, Gaga revealed that she is suffering from fibromyalgia syndrome. On her social media account, the singer apologized to her fans for not being able to perform for them live due to her illness. Several years ago, she also said that she tested borderline positive for lupus.
"Lupus is in my family, and it is genetic. And it's so funny because my mother told me the other day that my fans were quite worried about me because they did talk about the fact that I was tested for lupus. And the truth is, I don't show any signs, any symptoms of lupus ... So as of right now, I don't have it, but I have to take good care of myself," said Gaga.
Gaga is set to perform at this year's Grammy Awards, and there are speculations suggesting that she will be singing "Joanne" live. The 31-year-old singer is also nominated for Best Solo Performance of "Million Reasons" and Best Pop Vocal Album for Joanne.
Gaga's fifth studio album has been dubbed as the singer's best project in five years. "Joanne" landed at the top of the Billboard 200 charts in 2017. Months later, Gaga said that she is already working on her sixth studio album.
"I have a lot ideas and a lot of things I want to create, so you'll see it in a bit. I need some time to create," said the singer.
Other than her album, Gaga is preparing for her upcoming Las Vegas residency in December. The "Born This Way" singer has also rescheduled her tour dates in the United Kingdom and Europe for this year.
