Lady Gaga has always been very honest and open with her fans, and today is no exception. The 31-year-old pop super star’s new documentary, which is titled Gaga: Five Foot Two, premiered on Netflix today (September 22). 

Throughout the course of the 100-minute film, we see the “Poker Face” singer working on her new album, and then dealing with everything from health battles to discussing her “feud” with Madonna.

We see a real look at how "Mother Monster" has dealt with debilitating pain for more than five years. She not only lists the medications that she is on, but we see her in doctor’s offices crying that she is still in pain. Just this week, Gaga's fibromyalgia forced the postponement of the European leg of the Joanne Tour

Yet, we could not help but notice that the singer never stopped worrying about her work. As Rolling Stone says, it's clear that “she’s a stickler for details,” and it’s very clear how seriously Gaga takes all of her work and social responsibility to fans. 

As for the feud with Madonna, we got to hear more of the story from Gaga herself.

If you’ll recall, back in 2012 Madonna said that Gaga’s music was “reductive.” Apparently, the “Material Girl” was never able to look the "Born This Way” singer in the eyes to discuss her issues, according to Gaga’s version of events in the documentary.

Gaga: Five Foot Two is now available for streaming on Netflix.
