"I look at Gaga and I think, 'How does she do it?' I talk to her mom and dad about it," the music legend said. "They worry." 

"She is frail, and she doesn't eat when she should, and she's a girl, and it's tougher for a girl," John explained. "She works really hard. She will be in Denmark one night and Saudi Arabia the next. I know how tiny she is and I do worry about her, yes."
