What Does *Five Foot Two* Mean?
Lady Gaga's new documentary is called Five Foot Two, which, not coincidentally, is also her height. Yes, Lady Gaga measures in at a modest 5'2, even though she may seem taller in the eyes of her Little Monsters.

Using her true height as the title of the documentary makes us think we are about to get a very intimate look at the pop star.
When Did Lady Gaga Film Her Netflix Documentary?
Director Chris Moukarbel filmed Lady Gaga starting in 2016 after her previous album, Artpop, didn't get the reviews she had hoped and leading up to the release of her follow-up album, Joanne. At the time, Gaga had just turned 30 years old and was figuring out who she was at this point in her life.
What Can We Expect From Lady Gaga's Documentary?
According to the TIFF description of the film, Lady Gaga will address her tense relationship with Madonna, her increased political activism and finding balance in her career.
In clips shared to Twitter and Instagram, Lady Gaga also talks about the loneliness of the spotlight, shows the lead-in to her Super Bowl halftime show and lets viewers in during a visit to her doctor's office.
