Lady Gaga and her boyfriend Michael Polansky aren't letting quarantine stop them from celebrating an exciting occasion!

Gaga on dance-pop track "911" and how she "flirted with" sobriety
Gaga included a lyric from "911" in her caption for the fun video. "My biggest enemy is me, pop a 911. #Chromatica," she wrote. "the worst things I hear about myself come from me. #911." As People shares, Gaga opened up about the song during an interview last week with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, revealing that it's about "an antipsychotic I take."
"I don't take any pain medication, because it's not healthy for me. But I've flirted with the idea of sobriety. I'm not there yet, but I flirted with it throughout the album," Gaga explained. "It's something that came up as a result of me trying to work through the pain that I was feeling." Gaga went on to share that she also learned to be kinder to herself in the process.
"But part of my healing process was going, 'Well, I can either lash the hell out of myself every day for continuing to drink, or I can just be happy that I'm still alive and keep going,' and feel good enough," she said. "I am good enough. It's not perfect, but wabi-sabi. I'm perfectly imperfect.'"
Gaga hopes Chromatica makes people realize they're not alone
Gaga said that while she continued to drink, she actually quit smoking after she finished making Chromatica. "I smoked the whole way through making this record. And when we were done, I stopped. It was the most bizarre, beautiful thing that could have happened, that this music actually healed me."
She also mentioned that in collaborating with Ariana Grande for their duet "Rain On Me," Grande helped her realize how she was struggling to work through her journey of healing. "Eventually, she called me on my s—. She was, 'You're hiding.' And I was, 'I am hiding. I'm totally hiding,'" Gaga admitted. "And then this friendship blossomed."
Ultimately, Gaga said that she hopes Chromatica is able to bring people together. "If you're listening to this album and you're suffering in any type of way, just know that that suffering within itself is a sign of your humanity and you are not broken," she said. "You are connected to the whole world and we are one giant body. We are one full entity."
