Singer Lady Gaga struggled with sadness and insecurity while recording her 2011 album Born This Way, after shooting to fame too fast. The pop superstar admits she was in a dark place as she recorded tracks for the album, but her new release ARTPOP is a testament of how happy her life has become since. In an interview with Good Morning America, she says, "I was actually going through a hard time during Born This Way and I was kind of insecure. I became a star really quickly and I didn't really have time to put my feet in the ground and have a sense of myself through it all because it really is a machine and you just keep going... "So there was a lot of me putting things on to hide that sadness and the record reflected that, but I'm feeling so positive and healed in a lot of ways and I feel really overjoyed and loved. I'm obsessed with making things colourful and happy, I think it's because I'm in a happy place. If I'm in a happy place then the music is."
