Lady Gaga recently opened up about her struggle with post traumatic stress disorder caused by sexual assault and previous traumas, all of which Piers Morgan has basically called B.S. Now the two are setting up an interview to debate the merits of Gaga’s claims.
Gaga first revealed she faces PTSD on a segment for Today where she visited the Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBTQ youth in New York. She followed that up with a letter posted to her Born This Way Foundation website, elaborating on the disorder. Most recently, she thanked Madonna for her “brave and strong” Billboard Women in Music acceptance speech, which touched on issues of feminism, misogyny and more.
Morgan, meanwhile, wasn’t buying any of it. Piers Morgan responded to Gaga’s PTSD claims, suggesting it was “vain-glorious nonsense” and claiming outrage that she would use this to “promote” herself. He went on to state that Gaga and Madonna’s “allegations” of rape are simply that, since they did not file any police reports.
Eventually, Gaga responded, tweeting with a respectful but assertive tone, offering to help educate him and his viewers about why women often don’t report rape. Naturally, he agreed. They will also discuss that PTSD is “not just a ‘military’ disorder,” as Gaga put it.
No interview has been officially announced yet.
