Lady Gaga has been contemplating what is the root of her "torture" as an artist
Lady Gaga is trying to find the basis for "the torture of the artist".
The 28-year-old singer has been enjoying some time off after finishing her 'ArtRave: The Artpop Ball' world and has been getting philosophical about what the source of her internal angst is.
Gaga has deduced it comes from her constantly looking forward to the next scene in her life.
In a post on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, she wrote: "My life feels like a movie in slow motion. And as I try to live in the moment and be mindful I realise I'm writing the script to the next scene. Is this the source of the torture of the artist? We must be inspired by nature and yet we are constantly synthesizing it so do we ever live it? Or are we always writing it's next great fantasy?"
Gaga believes all artists could be trying to "play God" by creating their own world.
She added: "Are we playing God? Because certainly it would be foolish to think one could create something more beautiful than nature itself."
When she hasn't been philosophising, the pop superstar has been spending her festive break decorating her Christmas tree, doing yoga and cooking meals for her and her boyfriend Taylor Kinney.
Gaga has also recorded and released the classic Christmas song 'Winter Wonderland' with Tony Bennett - who she collaborated with on their hit album 'Cheek To Cheek'.
