Grammy and Oscar-winning singer Lady Gaga has opened up about her injury of being raped, while talking on Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry’s series”The Me You Cant See”. Appearing at the very first episode of the five-part series, Gaga recalls being 19 when a manufacturer threatened to burn her songs when she didn’t take her clothes off.
“They didn’t quit asking me, and then I just uttered, and I just — I do not even recall,” that the 35-year-old singer remembers, according to a report.
She says she is not comfortable naming her assailant, adding:”I don’t ever want to confront that person again.”
Gaga first spoke about her sexual attack in a 2014 radio interview with Howard Stern. She opened up on her PTSD diagnosis in 2016.
On”Me You Can Not See”, she says her pain manifested in a physical way. “And then I was ill for months and weeks afterï¿1/2 and that I realised it was the same pain that I felt when the man who mistreated me dropped me off pregnant on a corner, at my parent’s home,’cause I had been vomiting and ill,’cause I’d been abused. I was locked away in a studio for months,” Gaga recalls.
“I had a whole psychotic break, and also for a few years I wasn’t the same woman,” she states in the sequence.
“Even if I have six amazing months, all it requires is getting triggered after to feel bad. What’s wrong with me?’ And you know what, there is nothing wrong with you, but there’s something which’s not firing right.”
Gaga says she shares her story not to garner sympathy but to trigger empathy in others, reports usatoday.com. “Open up your heart for someone else, because I am telling you, I’ve been through it and people want assistance. That’s part of my healing, is being able to Speak with youpersonally,” she sums up
