The A Star Is Born actress also reflected on her past experiences with self-harm, explaining she believed it was the only way she was able to show how she was feeling inside.
"My mental health, I thought, was a problem when I was very young. I used to cut myself when I was very young," she says. "I had my own experiences with abuse and it's really hard for me to articulate in a way where I feel like it's safe for young people to listen or even older people to listen about why anyone would cut. I do believe that those urges, for me, came from a place of I need to show the hurt inside."
"You know why it's not good to cut? You know why it's not good to throw yourself against the wall? You know why it's not good to self-harm? Because it makes you feel worse," she continued. "You think you're going to feel better because you're showing somebody, 'Look, I'm in pain.' It doesn't help."
Gaga finished on a positive note, explained she "learned all the ways to pull myself out of it. It all started to slowly change."
