Pop queen Lady Gaga has admitted that she’s had to fight her own battle with depression.
In an interview in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine, the 27-year-old opened up about her struggle. “I became very depressed at the end of 2013,” she recalls.
“I was exhausted fighting people off. I couldn't even feel my own heartbeat. I was angry, cynical, and had this deep sadness like an anchor dragging everywhere I go.”
Gaga explained that she fought off depression by remembering her talents and that she's “a human, not a doll”.
“Depression doesn't take away your talents - it just makes them harder to find," she explained. "But I always find it. 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.”
Also in the interview, the singer spoke about overcoming her eating disorder and cutting ties with people who "only believe in [her] because [she] makes money."
