Lady Gaga is pretty much an open book these days. The pop star stopped by The Howard Stern Show earlier this week and dished on everything from depression to her past.
When asked about her controversial performance of the Artpop song “Swine,” during which artist Millie Brown vomited paint on her, she explained to Stern that she wanted Brown to vomit on her as part of a larger degradation theme, since “Swine” is about rape. Stern asked Gaga if she’d ever been raped. She tried to ignore the question at first, replying:
“Happy times! Let’s talk about happy times! I went through some horrific things.”
“It happens every day, and it’s really scary, and it’s sad. It didn’t affect me as much right after as it did about four or five years later. It hit me so hard. I was so traumatized by it that I was like, ‘Just keep going.’ Because I just had to get out of there. I’ll be damned if somebody’s gonna say that every creatively intelligent thing that I ever did is all boiled down to one d*ckhead who did that to me.”
“I’m not sober yet. I think I will be at some point.”
