Gaga: Ballet brings me joy

Lady Gaga is making the most of her time off from performing.

The 28-year-old singer has a gruelling work schedule, divided between her shows, appearances and the recording studio. But this week she’s managed to take a break and indulge in one of her favourite pastimes. The star uploaded an Instagram photo on Tuesday of herself looking snug in a fluffy hooded coat, showing off a pair of ballet slippers.

“Just left ballet!” she wrote in the caption. “Having so much fun getting back to my old routine, can't wipe this smile off my face. I haven't had time off like this in years!”

Gaga is known for her rambunctious stage performances, but now it seems she has a history with the classical dance form. And judging by her Twitter feed, she’s revelling in her time off lately. She gushed to her followers on Monday about how excited she was to be preparing for the festive period.

“I'm decorating a Christmas Tree myself for the first time in 6 years, so happy,” Gaga wrote. “We should never take it for granted the joy it brings!”

But it’s not all relaxation time for the Poker Face songstress. On Monday evening she was in Washington D.C., where she spent the evening honouring Sting, Al Green, Lily Tomlin and Patricia McBride who all received Kennedy Center honors medals.

There, Gaga further showcased her good mood when she raved about what a “joy” it was to spend time with Academy Award winning actress Meryl Streep.

“Meryl is a truly remarkable woman through and through. It was such a joy to be with her. Really made me smile, a kindness beyond,” she wrote alongside an Instagram snap of the pair.
