Career over relationship for Lady Gaga

London: Pop star Lady Gaga says her music career is her priority and she has no qualms if she remains single forever.

The singer refuses to make sacrifices in her professional life for a relationship.

"Women have to make decisions and it`s the toughest thing ever. Is it a man or is it a career? I was with a man once who couldn`t understand that other things could come first. I tried not to let them but then I was just unhappy, I had to break away. I know I run the risk of being alone for ever, but it`s the price I`ll have to pay," a website quoted her as saying.

Gaga admits that she fears rejection.

"I`d never let any man come before my career. I guess there`s some fear inside of me which makes me this way. 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 a big problem with rejection," she added.
