Hillary Hughes, MTV NEWS — It’s been nearly a year since the release of Joanne, Lady Gaga’s fifth studio album. In that time, she’s headlined Coachella, played the Super Bowl halftime show, dropped a new single, started filming Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born remake, and kicked off the Joanne world tour.

Gaga, understandably, is tired, and she’s ready to “take a rest” from music for a spell.

At the Toronto International Film Festival — where a documentary about the singer, Gaga: Five Foot Two, sees its premiere today (September 8) — Gaga revealed in a press conference that she’s going to slow down after her prolific year.

“It doesn’t mean I won’t be creating,” she clarified. “It doesn’t mean I don’t have some things up my sleeve.” She added that the main purpose for the slower pace is to focus on “some healing, because that’s important.”

Indeed — and given how much pain drives a lot of Gaga: Five Foot Two, it’s easy to see why healing is her top priority right now. Gaga is a longtime sufferer of chronic pain, which the documentary zooms in on in great detail.

Sounds like some time away from the stage and the studio is going to give her exactly what she needs — and we can’t wait to see what she’s got up those glittery sleeves of hers.
