Lady Gaga has shared more details about being a survivor of sexual assault.
The 'Poker Face' singer, 35, appeared in Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry's Apple TV+ series The Me You Can't See where she revealed she was pregnant after the incident.
"I was 19 years old, and I was working in the business, and a producer said to me, 'Take your clothes off,'" Gaga recalled. "And I said no. And I left, and they told me they were going to burn all of my music. And they didn't stop. They didn't stop asking me, and I just froze and I — I don't even remember."

Gaga shared the emotional pain from the assault resulted in a physical numbing of her entire body.
"First I felt full-on pain, then I went numb," she said. "And then I was sick for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks after, and I realised that it was the same pain that I felt when the person who raped me dropped me off pregnant on a corner. At my parents' house because I was vomiting and sick. Because I'd been being abused. I was locked away in a studio for months."
The pop star explained she'd also experienced a "psychotic break" over the incident. She said she was still going through it when she accepted an Oscar for A Star is Born in 2019.
"The way that I feel when I feel pain was how I felt after I was raped," she said. "I've had so many MRIs and scans where they don't find nothing. But your body remembers."
