Lady Gaga opened up about living with mental illness yesterday while meeting with homeless LGBT youth on November 25.
The singer spent time at the Ali Forney Center in Harlem over Thanksgiving weekend, where she sang to and spoke with the young LGBT people who use their services. And yesterday (December 5), in an interview about her visit with NBC's Today show, she spoke about living with the condition.
"I suffer from a mental illness - I suffer from PTSD. I've never told anyone that before," she said, explaining that the condition developed after she was raped at the age of 19.
