Trigger warning: sexual abuse, violence. Singer Lady Gaga speaks to Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry about her abuse experience: “They didn’t stop and I froze.”
Lady Gaga was a victim of sexual abuse when she was 19.
We already knew that the pop queen Lady Gaga is looking forward to becoming a mother. But after her very open and private confession at the premiere of Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry’s new Apple TV + series “The Me You Can’t See”, we know that this was not always the case. The star tells more openly than ever what was done to her when she was 19. She became pregnant because of sexual abuse! The “Rain on Me” singer says a producer ordered her to undress. But Lady Gaga refused and wanted to go. They told her they would burn all their music. “And they didn’t stop. They didn’t stop and I froze. “Lady Gaga remembers what happened next not remember. “At first I was in a lot of pain, then I went numb. And I realized that it was the same pain I felt when the person who raped me and left me on a corner while pregnant, I vomited when I was with my parents. Because I was abused. I was locked in a studio for months.”
Lady Gaga speaks openly about her pregnancy and the psychotic break.
Fortunately, after this inhuman experience of abuse that the “Shallow” singer had to make, she is better today. Even if it was a long way to go. Lady Gaga says that the pain she suffered changed her. “I’d done so many MRIs and scans that the doctors couldn’t find anything. But the body remembers. I had a total psychotic breakdown and for a few years I wasn’t the same girl,” said Gaga. That break-even lasted until 2019 when she received the Oscar for “A Star Is Born”. Incidentally, Lady Gaga is not the only one who has had such experiences. Also singer Billie Eilishwas a victim of abuse in her youth. We must no longer give perpetrators a chance to sexually assault anyone! Lady Gaga and Billie Eilish reveal the sad truth that things are still going wrong in the world. But we can also take an example from them. It is a great achievement to talk about it and thus encourage those affected.
