The Britney Spears impersonator, who received a hug from GaGa after being voted off yesterday (November 13), said that the 'Marry The Night' star made her feel more secure about her emotional side.
"We chatted for an hour, she gave me the biggest pep talk ever," Brucknell told Daybreak. "I was so emotional, but she was emotional too! It made me feel better because I cry all the time and was worried I was a psycho, but Lady GaGa does it too."
Brucknell added that she had genuinely expected to leave The X Factor this week and speculated that viewers were unimpressed with her backstage antics.
"When I'm off stage, I'm just like, 'OK, I want to watch TV now', but the show expected people to be the same on and off the stage," she argued. "I did everything I could."
Brucknell claimed on Saturday (November 12) that she could "identify" with ejected contestant Frankie Cocozza, noting: "Guys and girls deal with criticism very differently. I got upset and everyone knew I was upset. He bottled it up inside."
