Wellington: Lady Gaga has revealed that she was raped when she was 19-year-old.
The ' Applause' hitmaker' told Howard Stern on his radio show that she wrote a song called 'Swine ', which is about rape and demoralization, Stuff.co.nz reported.
The 28-year-old revealed that she went through some horrific things that she is able to laugh at now, because she has gone through a lot of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal over the years and her music's been wonderful for her.
She said that she was about 19 and went to Catholic school and then all this crazy stuff happened and that shock stopped her from being affected by the incident in the initial aftermath. In fact, she believed it was at least four or five years before the ordeal really hit her.
When asked if she had ever confronted the rapist, a music producer 20 years her senior, Gaga said that she saw him one time in a store and she was so very paralyzed by fear and added that it wasn't until she was a little bit older that it hit her that it was really messed up.
