LOS ANGELES-Lady GaGa has admitted she considered quitting music three years ago but seemingly had a change of heart.

The 30-year-old pop star has admitted she considered turning her back on the gritty industry and stalling her talent after the release of her 2013 album 'Artpop'.

She explained: ''I was just having a really depressed time in my life where wasn't able to see my own ability or my own talent. ''And when you lose grasp of those sorts of things, you can just spiral.

''But you know, to the world 'quitting music' means one thing and to me its means another. I meant to giving putting out music, as opposed to just doing it for myself, which what makes me really and truly happy.'' However, the 'Born This Way' hitmaker seemed to have a change of heart as, three years later, she has released her new LP 'Joanne'. Despite her new album, Gaga isn't a fan how ''business'' focused the industry is nowadays because she just wants to focus on making music she enjoys.

She told the latest issue of NME magazine: ''When you become famous or you become a star, there's all these other things that begin to happen, and you have to work the system - especially in the music industry today, which is so different.

''You are dealing with this streaming war and it's an absolute nightmare to witness as an artist because it's not about music it's all about business - and that's just not who I am at all.''
