Lady Gaga recently addressed her fans' concerns about her absence from social media by sharing a black-and-white photo and a heartfelt letter on Instagram.
Fans have been worried about not hearing from Lady Gaga on her social media platforms for a while. However, the singer reassured them that she took off the past few months to heal and spend quality time with herself. Sharing a black-and-white snapshot of herself, she penned a lengthy open letter to her fans explaining why she's been away from the spotlight on her Instagram.
"I wanted to share a more personal moment with you today, I know I haven't been doing a lot of that lately and some of you are really longing for me to share more of my artistic process,” Gaga began her post. The "Poker Face" singer has been creative "in a really special and private way" since 2022. Gaga, who won an Oscar for "A Star is Born," has been keeping busy with creative projects, having recently wrapped the "Joker" sequel.
She called it a "very introspective time" and added, "I can say for the first time in many years that my love of making art, music, fashion, and supporting community has never been more fulfilling." She also mentioned that she has "been running my start-up (skincare brand) Haus Labs and working on 'The Chromatica Ball' film edit," during this time.
"I can't wait for you to experience it," Gaga said of the upcoming concert movie of her 2022 summer stadium tour, reports PEOPLE. "Thank you for being willing to grow with me so that I can change and transform with the community I love so much. I hope you love all the things I've been creating for you and I hope this is a small reminder to you of my deep passion and commitment to art."

In her post, she also explained to her fans that she "may not be sharing as much of myself online as I have in the past. But I hope you know this time to myself has been extremely healing and recharging for my heart, mind, body, and creativity—to create within myself and to have a personal life that's just for me."
Addressing her fans in the post directly, Gaga continued, "I'm sure that may feel different because I haven't always been so private (I bet that will make some of you laugh)—but I LOVE my fans, my little monsters, so much and that will never change. I can't even begin to describe how much our global community inspires me every day to bring as much joy as I can to your lives," she shared.

The 13-time Grammy winner loves her alone time and recently told Wallpaper magazine she's "really interested" in "a life of solitude" and admitted it's "really nice to just have time to be alone." With worldwide fame, she's learned to appreciate the quiet moments just by herself.
"When I was younger, I spent a lot of time alone writing music," she continued, adding, "But the more successful I became, the more I felt like I needed other people to tell me I was great." The "Bad Romance" hitmaker added, "It's really nice to just have time to be alone, and be expansive, and know that you're enough. I wish I could tell my younger self that."
