A new documentary about the life of pop sensation Lady Gaga will be released on Netflix on September 22.

The documentary, named Gaga: Five Foot Two follows the singer’s life and fans can expect some exciting insight into Gaga’s life behind the scenes.

In a tweet introducing the documentary, Gaga explains that behind the “larger than life” visage she really is just “#GagaFiveFootTwo”.

In one teaser for the film, a doctor is talking to a hospital gown clad, anxious Gaga about how to relieve an “intense pain” in her face.

“Let’s do this, so phase one is let’s try to get you out of this intense pain that’s in your face,” a healthcare professional is telling the singer.

“Phase two, let’s try to get the muscles to re-educate. Phase three, we do the blood spinning to try to cause regeneration. Okay?”



In another clip, the LGBT+ icon is having a heavy conversation with another person that reveals an inner fear of solitude.

“I’m alone Brandon every night,” Gaga says, sobbing. “And all these people will leave, right, they will leave. And then I’ll be alone.

“And I go from everyone touching me all day to everyone talking at me all day, to total silence.”

“The thing with me and Madonna for example, is that I admired her always and I still admire her no matter what she might think of me,” Gaga reveals in another teased clip.

“The only thing that really bothers me about her is that…”

To find out what does bother Lady Gaga about Madonna, we’ll have to check back on Netflix on September 22.
