London: Pop star Lady Gaga has penned a letter to fans in which she discusses how her friends have betrayed her in the past.
The `Born This Way` hit maker said she is now getting back to her best and has left her past behind, reported Contactmusic.
"Today is a really happy day for me. The past year was a challenge, and I`m so happy to have my spirit back. I felt in chains at times. Whether it be the record label disagreeing with me on single choices, or directors who could only create an idea of `Gaga` or what I`ve `done before` and weren`t able to move forward.
"Then there were all the personal moments. Betrayed by lifelong friends, mentors I`ve had for years suddenly taking advantage of me, and a massive struggle with my body image," she said.
