Lady Gaga Says Superstardom Left Her “Traumatized”

The 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals A6

Stardom can be hard, especially if you’re Lady Gaga.

The singer revealed she is still taking medication after feeling “traumatized” by her career’s sudden takeoff, which makes sense. We saw Lady Gaga EVERYWHERE from like 2011 to 2014, and then she chilled out for a bit. And Gaga herself admitted she was suffering a period of depression that left her feeling “exhausted – like I was dying”. Now, she’s preparing  to release her first pop album in three years. And as we reported, she just released her new single, Perfect Illusion, which is exciting. She talked to The Mirror about all of it, and I felt all the REALNESS.

On her sudden fame: “I needed a moment to stabilize. When my career took off, I don’t remember anything at all. It’s like I’m traumatised. I needed time to recalibrate my soul.”

On her mood: “I take medication. I’m not saying I feel good because of the medication – I wouldn’t encourage young people to take anti-depressants or mood stabilisers.

On depression: “I openly admit to having battled depression and anxiety and I think a lot of people do. I think it’s better when we all say: ‘Cheers!’ And ‘fess up to it.”

On being in her 30’s: “I find in my 30s, I haven’t actually calmed down. I calm down for periods of time and then I’m actually worse – I’m more wild for a short period of time. It’s a little bit of both. But 30 is fantastic because I feel like I have all the wisdom of my 20s.”

Lea Michele: “If I Can Change My Body, Anybody Can.”


Lea Michele covers the “special wellness issue” of People Magazine, which is probably geared to all of us doing some pre-holiday body shaming. The photo they chose of her for the cover looks a bit overzealous (also, just sitting bare-butt on wood? C’mon). She says some bland stuff about loving yourself, and while she used to be a vegan, she’s since re-added meat into her diet. Lea also isn’t humble when it comes to her body image, which I guess is refreshing considering that she could put herself down and shame herself. She loves herself. And, her body!

On gaining weight when she first did Glee
I had more time in my trailer, more time in my car, and less time walking around. That’s when I realized how important it was for me, personally, to include activities and movement in my daily life.

She’s very fit now
[I’m in] the best place I’ve ever been. If I can do it, an Italian girl from the Bronx? Are you kidding me? Anybody can do it.

She got in shape on the broadway show Spring Awakening in 2006
[Jonathan Groff and I] would even do bikram yoga in between shows sometimes. That’s when I realized ‘Oh, I’m actually kind of good at this.’ We’d rock it out on stage during the day, then go to class together, and it really built my confidence. My workouts have to be good for my soul as well. If my brain can’t get relaxed at the same time, then it’s not for me.

On getting through dark moments, like Cory Monteith’s death
You always have to have faith, because life is going to throw things at you. You have to trust that there is a plan. I really pride myself on the people I surround myself with and how I take care of myself, so my ground is table beneath me.

Her diet involves some meat and being persistent
[She eats meat] as long as it’s coming from good places. The best lesson I’ve ever learned is, Who cares if people [servers] think you’re annoying? Tell them to use less salt. Tell them to use less butter. The worse they can do is say no.

On wellness
It’s so important to do things for yourself – because the better you are, the better you can be for the people in your life. It’s so important for me to stress that being healthy is not about being a gym rat. It’s not about being 90 lbs. This is really how I live every single day.

“If I can do it anyone can” is a weird attitude to have, and probably suggests she’s in a big ol celebrity bubble. She thinks what she’s saying sound “accessible,” but she actually has some real Gwyneth Paltrow outoftouchness going on. Hey, at least she’s putting HERSELF FIRST…the big mantra of wellness. LOL.

Selena Gomez Is Taking Some “Me” Time

Selena Gomez Arrives In Paris

After traveling all over the world the last couple of months, Selena Gomez is taking a BREAK. Now, I don’t know what the deal is per se, but I do know that she’s struggled with Lupus before and often mistakes it for LEUKEMIA. So yeah, give her a break.

“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” the singer and actress, 24, tells PEOPLE exclusively in a statement. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”

“I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues,” she continues.

AND STOP WHAT YOU’RE THINKING RIGHT THIS MINUTE. That is, everyone wants you to know that no, she’s not going to rehab. Okay? No rehab. Just chill dealing with lupus vacay, okay? Okay.

A source close to Gomez tells PEOPLE the break is “absolutely not related to alcohol or substance abuse” and was prompted after she “hadn’t felt like herself” over the last couple of months.

“She decided to clear her calendar for the year in order to have this be her priority for future happiness and didn’t want to leave any promoters at bay,” says the source. “She feels relieved that she can now make more sense of why she was feeling the way she was and is optimistic about the future.”

I mean, she did have to have mild chemotherapy for Lupus, and while I’m no doctor that seems serious enough to warrant a vacation. But also as a non-doctor, I would recommend Selena lay off the social media while she’s resting. That sh*t’s a STRESSER.
