Five Foot Two is not just a journalistic documentary, which can be seen on Netflix. It is also the diary of a woman who is an incredibly gifted musician, and socially relevant as a symbol for all those who do not want to adapt to what is perceived as normal. Gaga: Five Foot Two treats, singer-songwriter Lady Gaga’s life as being one split between glamor, fame and chronic illness.
"I do not want this movie to be an advertisement for me, why you should like me, and you think I'm perfect."
Offering a new scope on her private life, as never-seen-before, the documentary deals with Gaga's life in recent years, from the creation of her album 'Joanne' and her great Super Bowl performance to her struggles with anxiety, body pain, paranoia, drug and alcohol abuse. Gaga shows, with a certain naivety and simplicity how there is in fact life behind the whole glitter facade.
The 31-year-old admits her worst fears in front of the camera and reveals a new side to her identity. Speaking openly about her severe physical pain caused by the chronic fibromyalgia disease, in one heart-rending scene, the pop diva reveals her fear of not being able to have children because of illness and hip surgery.
