Lady Gaga reveals she's on medication after her career left her mentally ill

Any amount of time without music from Lady Gaga is too long, but three years is basically torture.

While the singer did record a jazz album with Tony Bennett and give acting a try during her hiatus, it’s hard to believe her last solo album, Artpop, was back in 2013. A few weeks ago, normalcy resumed when she released her new single “Perfect Illusion.” In between these projects, however, she did a lot of reflecting, revealing to The Mirror on Sunday that she took that break for her mental health.

“I needed a moment to stabilise.When my career took off, I don’t remember anything at all. It’s like I’m traumatised. I needed time to recalibrate my soul.”“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 stabilisers.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.”

On turning 30 in March this year, she said

 I wanted to leave my 20s, immediately,” she says. 
“I was like: ‘Thanks, I get it. You’re young, you’re crazy, you’re wild. Goodbye.’I find in my 30s, I haven’t actually calmed down. I calm down for periods of time and then I’m actually worse - I’m more wild for a short period of time. It’s a little bit of both. 
“But 30 is fantastic because I feel like I have all the wisdom of my 20s.”
