New York, NY, United States (4E) – Lady Gaga was interviewed on the “Today” show and the “Poker Face” singer said that she suffers from a mental illness specifically Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The “Today” interviewed aired on Monday and the singer and her latest revelation came two years after she revealed that she was raped at the age of 19. She noted that she has never told anyone about her mental illness but “the kindness that’s been shown to me by doctors — as well as my family and my friends — it’s really saved my life. I’ve been searching for ways to heal myself, and I’ve found that kindness is the best way.”

She also took to Twitter to say that she shared her deepest secrets to the world via the “Today” interview noting that secrets keep a person sick with shame. She used the hashtag “#ShareKindness.” The Hashtag is actually the Share Kindness Campaign launched by the Born This Way Foundation of Gaga, Today, and NBC Universal. Also during the Monday episode of “Today,” Gaga visited the Ali Forney Center in Brooklyn, NY, where she talked to homeless youth who are part of the LGBTQ community.

Gaga said that these children are not just homeless but they also suffer from trauma as they have been rejected in some type of way. She said that she is no better than any of the kids at the center adding that they are equal because they are in this together.

She shared more about kindness, “Kindness, to me, is an action of love or a showing of love to someone else. I also believe that kindness is the cure to violence and hatred around the world. I like to share kindness in a lot of different ways. Those of us that have should give to those who have not during the holidays. Do one kind act before the end of the year. Just be kind. The act itself, it's free—and it's priceless.”
