“In my life I go, oh my goodness look at all these beautiful, wonderful things that I have and I should be so happy, but you can’t help it if in the morning when you wake up you are so tired, you are so sad, you are so full of anxiety.”
Lady Gaga made this honest statement about what the dark side of mental illness looks like after Prince William asked her about the open letter she recently wrote. The Grammy winning pop singer opened up last year about her mental health issues, and have since then been fighting the taboo around the subject and advocating mental health.
Prince William also recently spoke up about his own battles with mental illness, which he revealed started after his mother, Princess Diana, tragically died in a car crash. He was then only 15.
