Lady Gaga Calls Christian Carino Her 'Fiance' During Women in Hollywood Speech
Gaga, who currently stars as Ally in the film A Star Is Born, opened up about mental health and sexual assault in her heartfelt speech for the event.
“As a sexual assault survivor by someone in the entertainment industry, as a woman who is still not brave enough to say his name, as a woman who lives with chronic pain, as a woman who was conditioned at a very young age to listen to what men told me to do, I decided today I wanted to take the power back. Today I wear the pants,” the singer told attendees, via ELLE.
“In an age where I can barely watch the news, I gasped at the unjust men, and some women quite frankly, that I see running this country. I had a revelation that I had to be empowered to be myself today more than ever,” Gaga continued. “To resist the standards of Hollywood, whatever that means. To resist the standards of dressing to impress. To use what really matters: my voice.”
