LADY GAGA to take a break from music

When Lady Gaga and ex-fiancé Taylor Kinney chose to "take a break" back in July of a year ago, fans were largely left to wonder why the twosome that once seemed destined for marriage suddenly fell off the rails.

The documentary takes a look at Germanotta's issues with chronic pain. "It's hard. But it's liberating too". It doesn't mean I don't have things up my sleeve that I'm not going to tell you today. The pop star is premiering a revealing new documentary about her life at the film festival and on Friday she also performed at the film's screening.

Gaga recently shot a remake of "A Star is Born", co-starring Bradley Cooper.

Still, the documentary also shows the staying power of their friendship through it all, as evidenced by the bouquet of flowers she received from her famous ex prior to her massive Super Bowl performance."Nothing like flowers from your ex-fiancé on the day of the Super Bowl", she cracks.

The Toronto International Film Festival (or TIFF) is now happening up in Canada, and at the festival this past Friday, Lady Gaga debuted her upcoming Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two. "My love life has just imploded", she laments in the movie. "And I still admire her, no matter what she might think of me".

Gaga added that performing at the Super Bowl was a high mark of her career. "I sold 10 million [records] and lose Matt [Williams]".

During the press conference, she teared up when asked about her struggle with chronic pain, which forced her to cancel a September 4 performance in Montreal, Canada. Throughout the film, the singer was seen undergoing a handful of treatments to help ease muscle spasms, which cause her to feel pain on the entire right side of her body.

"Do I look pathetic?" she asks in one scene, putting her hands over her face to cover her tears. I'm never not creating.
