Lady Gaga is getting candid.
The ‘Rain On Me’ singer sat down with Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey on their Apple TV+ show ‘The Me You Can’t See,’ where she discussed being raped at 19 and a pregnancy that occurred from the incident.
Her words below…
“I was 19 years old and I was working in the business, and a producer said to me: ‘Take your clothes off’. And I said no.”
“And I left, and they told me they were going to burn all of my music. And they didn’t stop. They didn’t stop asking me, and I just froze and I don’t even remember.”
“First I felt full-on pain, then I went numb. And then I was sick for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks after, and I realised that it was the same pain that I felt when the person who raped me dropped me off pregnant on a corner. At my parents’ house because I was vomiting and sick. Because I’d been being abused. I was locked away in a studio for months.”
Gaga previously talked about her rape on ‘The Howard Stern Show’ back in 2014, where she revealed that her song ‘Swine’ from her ‘ARTPOP’ album is about rape (as we reported here). Additionally, she went on to credit various forms of therapy for helping her work through the incident.
