Only days before her "breakdown" performance at the Youtube Music Awards, Lady Gaga tweeted this.
Could this be the cause of the emotional performance she gave?
My puppy Alice died. We had to put her down, cancer ate away at a little angel. My daddy is so sad, we all are, lost a member of our family— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) October 30, 2013
I love being an entertainer but it is so painful sometimes to be away from home 17 years she held on, so many memories. Nothing beats family— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) October 30, 2013
