Lady GaGa Claims She Was Raped by Record Producer When She Was 19

Opened up to Howard Stern

LADY GaGA claims she was raped by a record producer when she was 19.

The singer opened up in an interview on the Howard Stern Show.

Stern posed the question to GaGa after she explained the inspiration behind her song Swine” and her vomit-filled performance of the song at this year’s SXSW.

“I wrote a song called Swine,” she said.

“The song is about rape. The song is about demoralization. The song is about rage and fury and passion, and I had a lot of pain that I wanted to release. I said to myself, ‘I want to sing this song while I’m ripping hard on a drum kit, and then I want to get on a mechanical bull’—which is probably one of the most demoralizing things that you can put a female on in her underwear—’and I want this chick to throw up on me in front of the world so that I can tell them, you know what? You could never, ever degrade as much as I could degrade myself, and look how beautiful it is when I do.

“I went through some horrific things that I’m able to laugh [at] now, because I’ve gone through a lot of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal over the years.

“My music’s been wonderful for me. But, you know, I was a shell of my former self at one point. I was not myself. To be fair, I was about 19. I went to Catholic school and then all this crazy stuff happened, and I was going, ‘Oh, is this just the way adults are?’…I was very naïve.”
