Lady Gaga is the latest in a string of celebrities to open up about her battle with depression. The singer recently discusses how fame caused her to seek medical attention for her mental health.

“When my career took off, I don’t remember anything at all. It’s like I’m traumatized. I needed time to recalibrate my soul,” she told The Mirror.

And while Gaga has been in the spotlight for some time now, she still admits to struggling with the disease.

“I openly admit to having battled depression and anxiety and I think a lot of people do. I think it’s better when we all say: ‘Cheers!’ And ‘fess up to it.”

The singer added,

“I take medication. I’m not saying I feel good because of the medication – I wouldn’t encourage young people to take anti-depressants or mood stabilizers.”

We commend her for seeking the attention she needed and for willing to speak so openly about it. Many other celebrities have come forward to discuss their mental health issues including Demi Lovato, Halsey, Cara Delevingne, Keke Palmer, Zayn Malik, and more.
