Lady Gaga’s depression made her feel like she “was dying”

Lady Gaga has opened up about her battle with depression and admits that she thought she was “dying”. Thankfully, the Poker Face singer has had a positive start to 2014 and insists that she is much better now.

Talking to Bazaar, she said: “I didn’t feel like standing up for myself one more time – to one more person who lied to me. January 1st, I woke up, started crying again, and I looked in the mirror and said, ‘I know you don’t want to fight. I know you think you can’t, but you’ve done this before. I know it hurts, but you won’t survive this depression’.”

The 27-year-old added: “I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You just have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that’s left. I’m lucky I found one little glimmer stored away.”

The Bad Romance singer had also suffered from an eating disorder but reveals that she now has a “better relationship with food.”

We’re glad Gaga is back to herself and applaud her for being so open.
