Los Angeles: Singer Lady Gaga says she wants to get sober "at some point" in the future.
The 28-year-old says she still struggles with depression and wants to stop drinking alcohol so she can learn how to relax, reports contactmusic.com.
"I do believe that people are triggered, (that) their depression is triggered by situations. I believe that all depression stems back to anxiety and an inability to relax during tough situations.
"When my life got more and more stressful, it was like I was just smoking and drinking and popping anything I could do to just chill out. I think I will be at some point," she said during a show when asked if she plans to embrace sobriety.
The star prefers to exercise instead of going out these days.
"Now I meditate...I do yoga. I use the sauna a lot. It's good for my body... And I sing jazz! The jazz has been so good for my depression," she added.
Gaga, who also revealed that she was raped by an unidentified music producer when she was 19, says Tony Bennett helped to restore her faith in men while they were recording their recently released duets album "Cheek to Cheek".
"Can you imagine after all that time and after that how I was feeling, then having Tony Bennett be so loving? He's not just a father or a grandfather or an uncle, he's a friend, he's a brother, he's everything. He wants nothing from me but my talent and my friendship," she said.
