Lady Gaga Says She Was "Depressed" to Be Herself Before Recording "Chromatica"

Lady Gaga might seem emotionally bulletproof, but in recent years she's dealt with some tough times. "I used to wake up every day and remember I was Lady Gaga -- and then I would get depressed," she told Billboard about her life after the Joanne World Tour ended in 2018. "I was peeling all the layers of the onion in therapy, so as you dig deeper, you get closer to the core, and the core of the onion stinks." Things were quite serious, she adds: "My existence in and of itself was a threat to me. I thought about really dark s**t every single day." Luckily, music became her savior. "I’m a savage when I want to write a pop song," she explains and added how much it means to her that she rediscovered here talent. "I would cry and go, 'There it is -- hi! How’s it going? Why do you get to hide?'"

Carole Baskin Sued by Missing Husband's Family for Defamation Over "DWTS" Jokes

Another catfight is brewing between Carole Baskin and the family of her missing husband, Don Lewis. ET reports that Lewis' three daughters and his former assistant are suing her for defamation over jokes that were made about his disappearance on Dancing With the Stars. In court documents, the plaintiffs claim Baskin didn't condemn or correct comments made about Lewis on DWTS, such as when judge Bruno Tonioli told her that she "didn't quite kill the paso doble." They also say she was complicit in defaming Lewis during an appearance on Good Morning America this month when she quipped that she'd "really kill it next week" dancing to "Eye of the Tiger" on the long-running reality show. In 1998, Carole settled a libel and slander suit from one of Lewis' daughters for $50,000.
