Unveiling Lady Gaga

Taylor Swift caught some attention for posting cryptic video clips on Instagram earlier this week, but Lady Gaga could have her beat.

The pop superstar shared a series of unique videos and photos on Instagram Thursday to tease her upcoming Netflix documentary ‘Gaga: Five Foot Two’.

The doc was selected to premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. It’ll be launch simultaneously in all 190 countries in which Netflix is available on September 22.

It was directed by Emmy winner Chris Moukarbel,  who according to Netflix’s VP of Original Documentaries, brings us into Lady Gaga‘s intimate world.

“It is a rare moment when one is invited behind the curtain to witness the raw truth of an individual. Even more so when that person happens to be one of the most recognizable, influential and scrutinized public figures in culture today.”

Adding the extents of Moukarbel’s work “allowing us to experience the drive, conflict, passion, complexity and deeply personal creative process behind this singular artist,”

Judging by the clips Gaga shared on her social media accounts, we must certainly witness quite a journey. Including her ongoing struggle with chronic pain, how she deals with fame, and more.

In one clip, Gaga is seen, without makeup and flamboyant stage wear. Sitting in a doctor’s office somberly listening as a treatment plan for her chronic pain is described.

In another one, she discusses the loneliness of fame, and in a third one her feud with pop icon Madonna.

Joining the list

Gaga is far from the first musician to release a documentary. But just as with her promotional strategy for the film, she isn’t going the traditional route. Instead of releasing the documentary in theaters, ‘Gaga: Five Foot Two’ is debuting on Netflix.

It’s unclear how much the streaming service paid for the film. But other musicians have found financial success with the genre.

Top honors for the highest-grossing music documentary goes to Justin Bieber, who pulled in $73 million for his 2011 documentary ‘Never Say Never’.

Followed by Michael Jackson who earned $71.84 million for ‘This Is It,’ and Miley Cyrus with $65.28 million for ‘Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert.’
