Lady Gaga gives candid interview about RAPE INCIDENT

Being raped is usually very difficult emotionally for the victims. The scar could go on for life. Some can actually withstand it while others go through the trauma for life. Lady Gaga gave a candid interview about how her life changed after being sexually assaulted as a teenager.

The chart-topping singer was raped at the age of 19 and admitted the incident had a profound impact on how she's lived her life ever since during an interview on Thursday. 

The following day, the star performed her tribute song to victims of sexual assault, Til It Happens to You, at Billboard's 10th Annual Women in Music luncheon at Cipriani in New York. 

She was joined by her fiance Taylor Kinney at the start studded event.   

While promoting The Hunting Ground, a documentary on campus rape, she told TalkTimes on Thursday: 'The only person in this scenario that can heal you is yourself, and that is the complicated process.' 

Gaga, now 29, said she kept the harrowing incident to herself for years, admitting she didn't know how to cope with the emotional turmoil. 

'I didn't tell anyone for I think seven years,' she explained. 

'I didn't know how to even think about it, I didn't know how to accept it, I didn't know how to not blame myself or think it was my fault. It was something that really changed my life. It changed who I was completely. It changed my body, it changed thoughts.'

Gaga also admitted there were times she blamed herself for the attack.

However, the 'Born This Way' hitmaker said she's since turned her pain into new-found strength and resolve.
