Pop star Lady Gaga says she sacrificed love to be successful and admits she is too "weak" to make relationships work.
"My greatest sacrifice is love. I've only been in love once and I had to walk away because I had to put my career first. He wanted me to stay at home and be with him, but I wanted to be out there trying to make it on stage," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.
"It was a huge lesson for me, but it's also a source of sadness. God gave me a gift with music, but if you have gifts you also have weaknesses. My weakness is not being able to make relationships work.
"There's something in me that stops me ever putting a relationship before my work. I guess I always think my music is never going to roll over in bed one morning and tell me that it doesn't love me any more. I have to believe the music is worth the sacrifice," she added.
