Lady Gaga Still 'Devastated' by Michael Jackson's Death

As the one-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death quickly approaches, Lady Gaga reveals that she's still reeling from the loss of the pop icon.

"I was actually asked to open for Michael on his tour, and we were going to open for him at the O2 and we were working on making it happen," Gaga said on Larry King Live.

"Michael's death was devastating for me regardless of whether or not I was supposed to go on tour with him. He's such an inspiration and remarkable human being. I guess I suppose some of my fascination with death and the demise of celebrity goes along with me watching these hugely iconic and amazing people that I have heralded and admired my whole life become destroyed. Whether self-destroyed or destroyed by the media."

Gaga also addressed her health issues, as recent reports speculated that the "Telephone" singer might be suffering from Lupus.

"You know, lupus is in my family and it is genetic," she said, when King asked about it. "It's funny, cause my mother told me the other day that my fans were quite worried about me because I did talk about the fact that I was tested for Lupus.

"The truth is I don't show any signs, any symptoms of lupus, but I have tested borderline positive for the disease, so as of right now I don't have it. But I have to take good care of myself."
