Lady Gaga doesn't think fame makes you happy. The singer says celebrities have been "put on a pedestal" and feels kindness is far more important than celebrity and fame.

Speaking at a concert at the Westfield Shopping Centre in West London, she said: "Money has been put on a pedestal. Beauty has been put on a pedestal. Celebrity has been put on a pedestal. I have travelled the world and seen the happiest people in the poorest parts of the world.

"Their values are intact. In the richest homes, I meet the saddest and most depressed people. With this album I wanted to remind the whole world and my fans that the most important things are love and kindness. Kindness is what will create harmony, not celebrity and not fame."

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old singer previously admitted she doesn't feel "free" now that she is famous.

She explained: "I'm very acutely aware that once I cross that property line, I'm not free anymore. As soon as I go out into the world, I belong, in a way, to everyone else.
