Lady Gaga is one of the most loved superstars in Hollywood. She began her career as a singer and there was no looking back. With the blink of an eye, songs like Bad Romance, Born This Way went viral. Over the years, she has also turned into an actress. But the journey wasn’t easy. The singer is now opening up about her rape incident and the consequences of it.
For the unversed, Gaga has previously revealed about being ‘repeatedly raped’ when she was 19. She couldn’t deal with the trauma for years post the tragic incident and developed PTSD. A Star Is Born actress has now opened up about her driving force during that tough time.
In an interview with Oprah Magazine, Lady Gaga revealed, “After I was raped, I cried on her couch for days,’ she explained. ‘Eventually, she turned on MTV and told me to look up. A female artist was performing. My grandmother said, “I’ll let you cry the rest of the day, but then tomorrow you’re going to go back out and make a real change in this world. No more tears tomorrow.”
That’s not it! Lady Gaga even opened about her depressing days. The Shallow singer has gone forward to confess that she thought giving up is a good idea at one point of time.
“Once I felt so depressed, I thought it was a good idea to give up. That’s the worst thing you can do. I wish I’d just asked for help. But I forgive myself,” said Gaga.
Lady Gaga is also dealing with fibromyalgia along with mental health issues and PTSD. The beauty has done her contribution to society to make it better for others like her. She launched ‘Born This Way Foundation’ for the youth dealing with mental health issues and well being.
