Lady Gaga battled depression last year

Feb 5 2014, 2:26pm CST | by

Lady Gaga battled severe depression late last year.

The 'Applause' hitmaker admitted she had a very stressful 2013, during which she canceled her tour to have hip surgery, parted ways with her long-term manager, Troy Carter, and received mixed reviews for her latest album 'ARTPOP,' but is now in a much better place.

The 27-year-old star told the March issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine: "I went through a rough time last year. I felt very taken advantage of by people I trusted.

"I became very depressed at the end of 2013. I was exhausted fighting people off. I couldn't even feel my own heartbeat. I was angry, cynical, and had this deep sadness like an anchor dragging everywhere I go. I just didn't feel like fighting anymore. I didn't feel like standing up for myself one more time -- to one more person who lied to me."

She added: "I really felt like I was dying -- my light completely out."

Despite feeling very low, the 'Do What U Want' singer forced herself to start focusing on the good things in her life again at the beginning of January.

She said: "I said to myself, 'Whatever is left in there, even just one light molecule, you will find it and make it multiply. You have to for you. You have to for your music. You have to for your fans and your family."

The singer has also rediscovered her passion for her career.

She said: "Depression doesn't take away your talents -- it just makes them harder to find. But I always find it. I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You just have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that's left. I'm lucky I found one little glimmer stored away."

Billboard's album sales chart has a new entry in its No. 5 spot: Legend, the greatest hits record by Bob Marley and the Wailers. It's the highest spot ever for Marley.

Billboard reports that sales of the album rose more than 1,000 percent after music service Google Play ...

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Nicki Minaj’s request to return and speak to students at her alma mater, LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, was turned down, according to a post on the rapper’s Twitter account.

Twitter appeal has now narrowed down to trolls and Islamic terrorists, who are trolls who can run a flight of stairs without panting.

Katy Perry: ‘Why am I a baby machine? Why can’t I be a mogul?’

Sep 10 2014 6:25am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Katy Perry covers the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar in an Asian-inspired shoot. The theme doesn’t stand out on the cover as much as the editorial. Katy thinks she’s super kawaii in real life. At least she’s not committing cultural appropriation again with “geisha style.” This shoot simply favors Japanese gardens as a backdrop. Katy was probably bored, and her poses reflect that attitude. The interview is more interesting. Katy says Rolling Stone ...
