Lady Gaga: Says new film role and acting career has helped her battle mental illness


The singer – whose real name is Stefani Germanotta – has taken medication for depression and anxiety for several years but admitted her recent role in hit TV show American Horror Story: Hotel has been incomparable in battling her issues.

She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “I’m an actress now and that helps a lot.

“I’ve tried to get off [my medication], but my doctor always tells me not to, that it’s not safe for me. “I’ve tried a lot of things but there is something about acting that has really helped. I’m a Stefani-Gaga hybrid and I want you to know the real me.”
