Lady Gaga Opens up about Having Clinical Depression
Lady Gaga recently talked about her clinical depression in a new cover story for Paper. The pop star also discussed her forthcoming album, "Chromatica."
"I have clinical depression," the "Stupid Love" singer, 33, told the magazine. "There's something going on in my brain where the dopamine and serotonin are not firing the same way, and I can't get there."
When it comes to writing her new music, Gaga explained that it originated from intuition on certain days she was going to die. With her upcoming album, the multi-awarded singer said that she wanted something that "forces people to rejoice even in their saddest moments."

"I have bad days, I have good days. Yeah, I live in Chromatica; it took a minute to get here," she said, "but that doesn't mean I don't remember what happened."
As reported by PEOPLE, Gaga talked about mental health during a candid conversation with Oprah Winfrey in January as part of Oprah's 2020 Vision Tour stop in Fort Lauderdale.
The multi-talented artist revealed that at 19 years old, she developed PTSD subsequent to being sexually assaulted. According to her, she never dealt with it at first.
Now, Gaga said she wants to share what she's found out about processing negative encounters in her art. She added that she is a survivor and that she's going to impart them to the world and make it a better place.
In 2017, the "Bad Romance" singer was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. According to PEOPLE, it's a "chronic condition that renders her full body in pain during periods of stress."
