New Delhi: Lady Gaga spoke earlier this year about being sexually assaulted by a music producer when she was 19, recently revealing that she used the pain from being raped to drive her ‘House of Gucci’ performance.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she said, “I took the pain I feel from being attacked when I was a young girl, from feeling left behind by people that I love, from feeling trapped that I can’t go out into a world that I love. I took that pain and I gave it to her.”
Earlier, she revealed details of her assault, she said that she was attacked by a music producer, who left her pregnant, “‘I was 19 years old, and I was working in the business, and a producer said to me, “Take your clothes off. I said no. And I left, and they told me they were going to burn all of my music. And they didn’t stop. They didn’t stop asking me, and I just froze and – I don’t even remember. The person who raped me dropped me off pregnant on a corner.”
While she did not name the producer, she added: ‘I do not ever want to face that person again.’
While filming ‘House Of Gucci’, she pushed herself so hard for the nine months she was working on the film, she was often physically sick. She said, “You wake up, you throw up, you go to set, throw up again. Me passing as a 22 or a 25 year old is ridiculous, but thank you Ridley for believing in me in that way.” For the role, Gaga wore a bald cap over her real hair and then various wigs on top.
