Lady Gaga has admitted that she is "married to loneliness".
The controversial singer opened up to Asia's Star TV and said that the time she spends alone helps to make her who she is as an artist.
Gaga has an on-again, off-again relationship with barman Luc Carl but says that her work is her life.
"We wallow in loneliness and solitude our whole lives in search of the answer to hundreds and millions of questions that run through my mind," she said.
"Yes I'm lonely, but I'm married to my loneliness."
When asked if she would choose fame or love if she had to pick, Gaga said there would not be a competition between the two.
"I would choose my work. I would die without it and I could never be reborn," she admitted.
Gaga also admitted that her biggest fear was "missing out on a creative idea because of lack of time".
