After revealing she was on anti-depressants, pop star, Lady Gaga has opened up on her mental issues.
According to her, she is still taking medication after feeling traumatised by her career’s sudden takeoff.
After releasing her last pop album in 2013, she admitted suffering a period of depression that left her feeling “exhausted – like I was dying”.
She tells The Mirror in an exclusive interview, “I needed a moment to stabilise.When my career took off, I don’t remember anything at all. It’s like I’m traumatised. I needed time to recalibrate my soul.
I take medication. I’m not saying I feel good because of the medication – I wouldn’t encourage young people to take anti-depressants or mood stabilisers.I openly admit to having battled depression and anxiety and I think a lot of people do. I think it’s better when we all say: ‘Cheers!’ And ‘fess up to it.”
On turning 30 in March this year, she said, “I wanted to leave my 20s, immediately,” she says. “I was like: ‘Thanks, I get it. You’re young, you’re crazy, you’re wild. Goodbye.’
I find in my 30s, I haven’t actually calmed down. I calm down for periods of time and then I’m actually worse – I’m more wild for a short period of time. It’s a little bit of both. But 30 is fantastic because I feel like I have all the wisdom of my 20s.”
Meanwhile, Rumours are building that estranged lovers, Lady Gaga and Chicago Fire actor, Taylor Kinney, are planning to reignite their old romance.
Both have been caught making comments that suggests that they are still quite smitten about each other.
