Follwing the release of her 2013 album ARTPOP, Lady Gaga shocked fans when she revealed that she was taking medication on a daily basis to deal with mental illness. And after her triumphant return to the charts with the unveiling of her new single Perfect Illusion, the star has admitted that she’s still getting pharmaceutical help. ‘I needed a moment to stabilise,’ she told the Daily Mirror of her overwhelming rise to fame. ‘When my career took off, I don’t remember anything. It’s like I’m traumatised. I needed time to recalibrate my soul.’

And while she deems her fame ‘the single greatest blessing of my artistic career’, the Grammywinning superstar continues to take care of herself behind the scenes. ‘I take medication,’ she said. ‘I’m not saying I feel good because of the medication – I wouldn’t encourage young people to take anti-depressants or mood stabilisers. I admit to having battled depression and anxiety and I think a lot of people do.’ With the release of her new chart-topping single, which was produced by Mark Ronson, fans are eagerly anticipating the release of her as-yetunnamed album. The musician – real name Stefani Germanotta – has revealed in an interview with the Daily Star that the record will cover many areas of her personal life. ‘I’ve been betrayed by all types of people in my life and thought an illusion was put out to bait me in some kind of way,’ she said. ‘There’s a lot of rage on the album.’ ‘There’s going to be a lot of personal things on that record that are written through the lyrics and the music.’ She recently implied that her latest single is based on her lost love with actor Taylor Kinney in the wake of their summer split after a five-year romance. ‘It is about love; of course it is,’ the 30-year-old told The Sun in London on Sunday when asked about the meaning of the single, the first release off her forthcoming fifth studio album. She said the song – which features a chorus bellowing, ‘It wasn’t love, it wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion’ – delves into dynamics found in ‘all kinds of relationships’ men and women have, both romantic and otherwise. ‘I think it’s both sides: it’s not really from the woman’s perspective, this song. It was important to me that men, when they heard this song, felt connected to women even though the song is essentially about a barrier between us,’ said the singer. (DAILY MAIL)
