Lady Gaga is taking 'Joanne' on the road this month.
She adds: "I'm figuring out all of those relationships in my life through the music, and going very deeply into it. But in a totally beautiful way," she says. "It's not a sad album. It's an album that is very revealing of me as a woman."
Fans will have the opportunity to watch the shows via a live stream.
"It's very reminiscent of how I got my start," she says. "I began singing in dive bars and really small clubs. I dragged my piano down the stairs, and I went down the street with my keyboard and I would go to every different dive bar that I could get to agree to let me play. I'd call and pretend I was Lady Gaga's manager."
"I really wanted to reach that girl in the crowd who's got a kid in her hand and two kids running around her and a glass of beer in the other and she's crying her eyes out with heirloom jewelry on from her grandma," she said.
