Lady Gaga still takes medication for depression

Lady Gaga told fans during her gig in London on Thursday (23Oct14) that she still takes daily medication to tackle her depression.

The Poker Face hitmaker has talked about her battle with the disorder in the past, admitting she suffers the most when she is touring and felt incredibly low at the end of 2013.


During the show at the O2 Arena in the British capital, Gaga revealed she still requires daily pills to combat her depression after reading a letter onstage from a fan who had attempted suicide.


She told the crowd, "I take medication every day for depression... I used to beat myself up about it. I thought 'Why can't I feel happy?' But then I realized I was born this way and for some people it's harder to see the light. But depression needs to be taken far more seriously."


Gaga then dedicated a ballad version of Born This Way to the troubled fan.
