singer Lady Gaga explains why she was 'ashamed' to befriend Ariana Grande

Lady Gaga is opening up about becoming friends with Ariana Grande after years of resisting a close bond with the popstar.
The 'Stupid Love' singer revealed during an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Beats 1 that Grande worked hard to establish a relationship with her. But Gaga was reluctant to forge a bond as she feared that she'd be a negative influence on the young singer.

"She was so persistent. She would try over and over again to be friends with me," Gaga said. "And I was too ashamed to hang out with her, because I didn't want to project all of this negativity onto something that was healing and so beautiful."

Gaga was aware that Grande was going through "really hard life testing stuff," but she didn't stop trying. "Eventually she called me on my s---. She was [saying], 'You're hiding.' And I was like, 'I am hiding. I'm totally hiding.' And then this friendship blossomed."
Their newfound friendship led to Gaga collaborating with Grande on the track 'Rain On Me'. She recalled how the pair tested the boundaries when producing the record for her upcoming album Chromatica.

"I said to her, "OK, now everything that you care about while you sing, I want you to forget it and just sing. And by the way, while you're doing that, I'm going to dance in front of you," Gaga said.
"And she was like, 'Oh my God. Oh my God, I can't, I can't. I don't know. Oh my God. OK, OK.' And then I did it and she sang, and she started to do things with her voice that was different. And it was the joy of two artists going, 'I see you.'"

Chromatica will be Gaga's first album release since 2016's Joanne. The album was a "journey to healing" for her as she returns to her dance roots.
"I think that the beginning of the album really symbolises, for me, what I would call the beginning of my journey to healing, and what I would hope would be an inspiration for people that are in need of healing through happiness, through dance," Gaga said. "And that's in what I would call radical acceptance… For example, I know that I have mental issues; I know that they can be sometimes rendering me nonfunctional as a human. But I radically accept that this is real."
