Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (Italian pronunciation: [ˈstɛfəniː dʒɜrməˈnɒtə]; born March 28, 1986), better known by her stage name Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She is known for her self-empowering messages, fashion, and live performances. Gaga initially performed in theater, appearing in high school plays, and studied at CAP21 through New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts before dropping out to pursue a musical career. After leaving a rock band, participating in the Lower East Side’s avant gardeperformance art circuit, and being dropped from a contract with Def Jam Recordings, Gaga worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing. There, recording artist Akon noticed her vocal abilities and helped her to sign a joint deal with Interscope Records and his own KonLive Distribution.

Lady Gaga Opens Up About Her Battle With PTSD
On Monday, singer Lady Gaga revealed that she suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) on a Today segment filmed at a homeless shelter for LGBT youth. Gaga began experiencing symptoms of the disorder after she was raped at the age of 19.

“As my doctors have taught me,” she went on. “I cannot express my feelings because my pre-frontal cortex (the part of the brain that controls logical, orderly thought) is overridden by the amygdala (which stores emotional memory) and sends me into a fight or flight response. My body is in one place and my mind in another. It’s like the panic accelerator in my mind gets stuck and I am paralyzed with fear.”
When she encounters this, she also can experience depression, which she notes is a common part of PTSD. “It’s harder to do my job,” Gaga writes. “It’s harder to do simple things like take a shower. Everything has become harder.”
She closed out her letter noting that while many associate PTSD with “brave men and women that serve countries all over the world,” it can affect anyone, even children. “I pledge not only to help our youth not feel ashamed of their own conditions but also to lend support to those servicemen and women who suffer from PTSD. No one’s invisible pain should go unnoticed.”
