In the first episode, Lady Gaga was given the opportunity to talk about her mental health and how it has affected her life.

Although she has mentioned quite vaguely about being sexually assaulted before, this was the first time she has revealed more intimate details while telling her truth.

She begins by telling the story of how she was sexually assaulted by a music producer when she was only 19-years-old and that she just froze while it was happening.

The producer had told her to take her clothes off and she refused. After saying "no" she left but they told her they would burn all of her music and they were relentless in their efforts. They didn't stop asking her and then it happened.

Unfortunately, she was not only left with the physical, emotional and mental trauma but also ended up falling pregnant after the rape had occurred.

Even years later she is still feeling the effects of this attack and even admitted to experiencing a "full psychotic break" (around 2018) where she felt extreme pain before going numb.

She realised it was the same pain she had felt all those years before after her attacker had dropped her off at the corner in front of her parents' house where she stood vomiting from being in pain, sick and abused.

After years of chronic pain, her doctor suggested seeing a psychiatrist and she was diagnosed with PTSD.

She also says she will not name her abuser because she is not comfortable enough to do it and she will most likely never be able to face this person again.

She also still suffers from constant thoughts of self-harm.

While you might feel pity for Gaga, she says that is not her intention behind sharing this story and instead is only hoping that by sharing this part of her life, she can help someone else.

The series can be streamed on Apple TV+ and will also feature Lady Gaga, Glenn Close, celebrity chef Rashad Armstead, and many more.
