The aforementioned interview was conducted by none other than Oprah after Gaga was featured by ELLE, and it really gives the artist a chance to express her inner struggles like never before.

Gaga shared how she suffers from PTSD after the terrible occurrence in her young adult years.

“I have PTSD. I have chronic pain. Neuropathic pain trauma response is a weekly part of my life. I’m on medication; I have several doctors. This is how I survive.”

It was quite inspiring though to hear how Gaga doesn’t ever back down from her goals and dreams and continues to move past her bad moments. She knows she can’t change the past, but she can change the future.

Her response to Oprah in light of the previously undisclosed raping has inspired fans worldwide as many began to realize just how steadfast the singer truly is.

“But you know what, Oprah? I kept going, and that kid out there or even that adult out there who’s been through so much, I want them to know that they can keep going, and they can survive, and they can win their Oscar. I would also beckon to anyone to try, when they feel ready, to ask for help.”

After Gaga won an Oscar for her time working on “Shallow”, she explained how it wasn’t all a positive experience for her.

“When I won the Oscar for “Shallow,” I looked at it, and a reporter asked me, “When you look at that Oscar, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a lot of pain.” And I wasn’t lying in that moment. I was raped when I was 19 years-old, repeatedly. I have been traumatized in a variety of ways by my career over the years from many different things, but I survived, and I’ve kept going.”

Upcoming Album, 'Chromatica'
