Lady Gaga struggled with depression and feeling isolated when she was growing up and her mum think its because the star was ‘unique’ as a child.

Gaga’s mother, Cynthia Germanotta, explained that the Poker Face singer was bullied from a young age and it had a huge impact on her mental health. Speaking on Today’s Through Mom’s Eyes series, Cynthia said: ‘In middle school, because she was unique, she started experiencing a lot of struggles. ‘You know, feeling isolated from events. Humiliated. Taunted… she would start to question herself and become doubtful of her own abilities and that’s when she developed depression.

Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, has been pretty honest about her mental health struggles. Only this month, she was seen discussing her mental health with Oprah, including her battle with fibromyalgia, that causes pain all over the body, and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) – which she was diagnosed with after being sexually assaulted at 19 years old. Gaga’s mum said she and the vocalist’s dad, Joe, tried their best to ‘support’ Gaga through her tough childhood, but Cynthia admits she ‘made mistakes’ as she wasn’t as clued up about her daughter’s condition as she is now. ‘I felt where I made mistakes was I didn’t really know the warning signs to look for,’ she said. Cynthia added that Gaga speaking to young people experiencing similar situations and helping them through her Born This Way foundation has been ‘very healing’ for the Shallow hit-maker.

It's inspiring to see how open the mother and daughter are about mental health, particularly for younger people. heart.gif

The Germanotta family is amazing. They have had their struggles (alcoholism and such) but but they seem to have a very warm and close relationship with each other.
