Lady Gaga "doesn't care" about fame

Bad Romance singer Lady Gaga has insisted that she's not bothered by fame because she'd rather focus all of her energy into making music instead.

The 27-year-old star was forced to take time out of her hectic schedule in February in order to have a hip operation, but she admits the break made her re-evaluate her priorities.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Gaga, real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, said: ''I really enjoyed the downtime because it rejuvenated my creativity and I figured out a lot about myself after the last few years.

''I realised I am not in it for the fame. I don't need to go out and be recognised to feel alive.

''I do miss being onstage and singing and dancing. I didn't miss getting dressed up.''

Gaga played London's Roundhouse on Saturday night with a set made up of new songs. She played Aura, Manicure, ArtPop, Jewels & Drugs, Sex Dreams, Swine, I Wanna Be With You and Applause.

The singer recently revealed at the VMAs that she only truly feels alive when she is performing in front of an audience, saying:  ''When I'm not on stage I don't feel alive. But when I hit the stage it's like everything that I'm thinking and feeling, where I belong - that's where it is.''
