LOS ANGELES– Singer Lady Gaga says being sexually assaulted changed her “forever” and made her question everything.
The “Bad romance” hitmaker was raped at the age of 19 and has admitted that 10 years later she is still coming to terms with what happened, reports thehollywoodreporter.com.
“It’s something that changed me forever, and it made me question everything about what I had done to be where I am today. I thought to myself, ‘Did I do something wrong to bring this on myself? What did I do?'” Gaga said.
“I choose to wear these clothes, and I choose to dress this way and sing about sex, and you wonder if you’re implying to people that it’s okay,” she added.
Speaking about her song, “Til it happens to you”, which was inspired by her trauma, Gaga said: “The person that I’m singing to is the person that wants to heal me – I’m telling them they can’t.”
“I am so sick of people walking in and out of my life, telling me that I’m gonna be okay, because I am still in so much pain that you can’t understand,” she added.
Sepeartely, Gaga and her fiance American actor Taylor Kinney have posed naked for V magazine.
The duo appear completely nude in V magazine’s Spring Preview issue, which was guest edited by Gaga.
In the photograph, the singer can be seen wrapped around Kinney, who clicked the photograph, and insisted it was his idea, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Gaga wrote in her editor’s letter: “We made love on the canvas on a Sunday in Chicago. We made love amidst terrorism. And we talked about how people’s hearts are also suffering all over the world as they watch and witness a swell of violence. We made love amidst violence.”
“During tumultuous times, we hope everyone in the world will see this and be reminded to love each other wildly, generously, totally, colourfully, without fear and with compassionate hearts,” she added.
“We made a galaxy of endless colours with only brief, black holes of emptiness that are then filled by each other.”
Money raised from the Spring Preview issue will go to the “Poker face” crooner’s Born This Way Foundation.
