KEY POINTS

  • Lady Gaga recalled the times when she was bullied during her childhood years

  • She also revealed that no one came to help her when her bullies were saying nasty things about her

Lady Gaga has never shied away from opening up about her personal life. From being truthful about the sexual abuse she endured when she was young to her struggles with mental health, Gaga has always given insights into her personal life in a dignified manner.

And now the acclaimed musician is opening up once again about the thing that has affected her whole life – “bullying.”

While making an appearance on “The Sunday Project,” the 34-year-old musician recalled the times when she was bullied during her childhood years and also opened up about how it changes a person.

Talking about the matter, Gaga shared that she suffered a lot of bullying when she was in school and still remembers the nasty things her bullies used to say to make her feel bad.

The “Born This Way” hitmaker also noted that her experience with bullying will stay with her for her “whole life.” But one thing that made her more upset was that no one came up to help her when people were saying mean things about her and the way she looked. 

“It stays with you your whole life. I remember things that bullies said in front of other people and nobody said anything. Nobody said, ‘Are you OK? Are you fine?’ In fact, if I was to speak up about a bully being mean to me, it would be making it worse for me at school,” Gaga said.

Earlier this year, Gaga’s mom Cynthia Germanotta revealed that the “You And I” hitmaker’s depression started because of bullying. “I knew some of it, but there is some of it that she did not share because she was either embarrassed or afraid to tell me, and that was a little hard to hear,” Germanotta said.

Later in the interview, Gaga made it clear that she does not hold any grudges against those who put her down in school because she knows the value of “kindness.”

“Being bullied has taught me the importance of kindness because it is something that can be fixed,” Gaga said.

The acclaimed singer is currently riding high on the success of her new album, “Chromatica.” The reviews have been really positive and fans are loving the album, too.

Variety wrote that “Chromatica” is Gaga’s “best album” since “Born This Way.” The Guardian, The Independent, and NME gave the album four stars out of five.
