Music icon Lady Gaga took to Instagram this week to give fans a look at what's happening with her personally.

She posted a picture of herself holding a Rosary, saying she has to postpone the European performances of her  "Joanne"  tour for physical and mental health issues.

"I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out," she wrote in her post. "I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more."

 

 

I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word "suffer" not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I'm being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn't be further from the truth. I'm a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life.  They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.

She wrote in another post that "fame is not all it's cracked up to be." 

"It is lonely, it is isolating, and it is very psychologically challenging because fame changes the way you're viewed by people," the pop star explained. 

Gaga grew up in a Catholic, Italian family and has occasionally posted pictures on social media of herself going to church. 

Still, she is often criticized for her lifestyle and support for the LGBT community. 

 To that she says: "We are not just 'celebrities,' we are humans and sinners, children, and our lives are not void of values because we struggle. We are as equally forgiven as our neighbor. God is never a trend, no matter who the believer."
