Lady Gaga has claimed she has been "betrayed" by people around her, which has led to delays and problems with her latest album, ARTPOP.
The Born This Way singer - who was forced to cancel her tour last year to undergo hip surgery which left her wheelchair -bound - said she was left too unwell to fight her corner.
Gaga wrote on her Little Monster blog that the video for her new single, Do What You Want, was behind schedule because, "just like with the Applause video unfortunately, I was given a week to plan and execute it".
She added: "Unfortunately after my surgery I was too sick, too tired, and too sad to control the damage on my own."
Gaga went on: "Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result. Millions of dollars are not enough for some people. They want billions. Then they need trillions. I was not enough for some people. They wanted more."
The 27-year-old singer begged her fans, who she calls Little Monsters, for their forgiveness, and promised: " The next few months of ARTPOP will truly be its beginning. Because those who did not care about ARTPOP's success are now gone, and the dreams I have been planning can now come to fruition."
She added: "Let me be for you the Goddess that I know I truly am."
