Recently Lady GaGa announced on T.i.ter that her father had an open-heart surgery.
In an interview for 104.7 KISS FM in Phoenix, Arizona, she said that she covered the costs for the surgery.
“It was pretty necessary… It was the biggest nightmare of my life,” she said. “My father is my whole world; I’m such a daddy’s girl.”
“I said, ‘I haven’t bought anything yet with any of the money that I’ve made from my new album… so let me buy you a new heart, dad.’ And he said, ‘OK, fine.’”
“I took care of my mom and my sister and I took care of me, and he’s gonna be out in a couple of days… Now I feel like I can get back to work.”
“For a while I was feeling like I just wanted to give up. This really kinda put things in perspective…”
“When this happened I really just kinda said, ‘I don’t wanna do anything for the next two weeks; I just wanna be with my dad and be a good daughter.’”
