Pop singer, Lady Gaga, spoke out about being sexually assaulted as a teen and left pregnant. The singer was a guest on Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry’s new Apple TV+ docuseries ‘The Me You Can’t See’. The series, which explores mental health, launched last Friday.
The Grammy and Oscar winner let it out with watery eyes as she recalled the moment when a producer forced her to take her clothes off before threatening to burn her music.
“I was 19 years old, and I was working in the business, and a producer said to me, ‘Take your clothes off,'” she recalled. “And I said no. And I left, and they told me they were going to burn all my music. And they didn’t stop. They didn’t stop asking me, and then I just froze and I just … I don’t even remember.” She also added that the system is abusive and dangerous.
Gaga first discussed the attack with radio DJ Howard Stern in 2014 and has decided not to name her abuser because she does “not ever want to face that person again.”
