Lady Gaga has finally decided to open up about her split with ex-fiancé Taylor Kinney to whom she was engaged after five years of dating. The news shocked us all and now in an interview with CBS News, Gaga adressed the breakup, albeit a little vaguely.

"I think women love very hard," she said. "We love men. We just love with everything we have. And sometimes, I don't know that that love is met with the type of dignity that we wish it would be met with. You know, we're not trying to make you less of a man. We just want you to love us as deeply and as wholesomely and as fully as we love you."

We completely relate.

Gaga then went on to speak about her new album Joanne – named after her late aunt and released last month – and how she was coping with having to live in the spotlight all these years.

"I'm very acutely aware that once I cross that property line, I'm not free anymore," the six-time Grammy Award winner said. "As soon as I go out into the world, I belong, in a way, to everyone else. It's legal to follow me. It's legal to stalk me at the beach. And I can't call the police or ask them to leave. And I took a long, hard look at the property line. And I said, 'Well, if I can't be free out there, I can be free in here.'" She said that last bit, pointing to herself.

"I miss people," she added, tearing up. "I miss, you know, going anywhere and meeting a random person and saying, 'Hi', and having a conversation about life. I love people."
