‘I can’t always control things that my brain does’ – Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga talked of her mental state and she said ‘I can’t always control the things my brain does’.
She revealed she’s on anti-psychotic medication because she has mental health issues.
Lady Gaga made the revelations about her mental health during a chat with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio station on Tuesday, August 11.
Lady Gaga, 34, said that she has found olanzapine- a drug used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar people, very helpful.
‘I wrote a song on Chromatica called 911, and it’s about an anti-psychotic that I take and it’s because I can’t always control things that my brain does and I have to take medication to stop the process that occurs.
”I know I have mental issues and I know that they can sometimes render me non-functional as a human.’
How can I use my humanity to focus on something that I believe to be infinitely more important than what I’ve been through? Which is what the medical community has done.
‘It made me think about the helpers of the world and how their mental states are and how they don’t necessarily have the help that they need.
‘When this is all over whatever that means and things get better whatever that means, who will be there to support them’
‘I don’t lack self awareness and I do understand I’m not the only human on the planet that suffers and I think I have it pretty f****** good and I’m grateful for what I have.’
