Lady Gaga Opens Up About Her Battle with Depression

Lady Gaga shows off her toned torso while leaving her apartment and going to Z100 studios on Monday morning (September 12) in New York City.

The 30-year-old singer opened up about her battle with depression in a new interview with The Mirror.

“I needed a moment to stabilize,” Gaga said about her break after releasing her last album. “When my career took off, I don’t remember anything at all. It’s like I’m traumatized. 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 stabilizers,” she added. “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.”

FYI: Gaga is wearing John Fluevog boots.

    How long has Gaga been around now and this is the first time she has ever mentioned having a battle with depression. Quite interesting she decided to share this tidbit with the release of her new album (which sucks). She will do and say anything to stay in the public conscience from having a (fake) back surgery then to rehab and now depression. The only thing she wont do is write and perform music people like. I wish Gaga would go bye bye.
