Damn! Damn damn damn damn, damn, damn! And that was just dance. An upbeat, tracked about Lady Gaga being at a party, getting incredibly drunk and dancing it off. The song was released as Gaga's debut single and became her first hit from her studio album, The Fame. It's aimed to make anyone in a difficult situation, feeling a bit worthless, to feel good about themselves and find their mojo, Gaga said. That just Dance was effortless. It only took 10 minutes to write. She was feeling overwhelmed and stressed and wrote this song as a form of relief, which then ended up providing joy and relief to millions of people around the world. And Gaga is no stranger to depression, trauma and anxiety. In the 2014 interview with Howard Stern, Gaga said she had been raped at age 19, for which she later underwent mental and physical therapy. She has post traumatic stress disorder attributed to the incident and says that support from doctors, family and friends has really helped her. It's a wound that will never totally healed, but instead one. She has to live with a nurse every day of her life. Howard Stern suggested that her song titled Swine alluded to a sexual assault, and he then asked if she has been raped by record producer. She then replied, I went through some horrific things that I'm able to laugh at now because I've gone through a lot of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal over the years, she added, I was a shell of my former self. At that point. I was just not myself. To be fair, I was about 19. I went to Catholic school and then all this crazy stuff happened and I was going, Oh, is this just the way adults are? I was very naive. End quote. That man, who was 20 years older than her, robbed her of her innocence and took advantage of her lack of discernment and maturity a truly horrific and disgusting incident, to say the least. But Stern wasn't too far off when he alluded to male producers, taking advantage of Gaga. As she said in the documentary on her life. I just feel like so many men in my life, both in business and that I've dated. I just felt like what I was on my own wasn't good enough and I don't feel that way working with Mark when producers, unlike Mark, start to act like you'd be nothing without me. For women, especially those men have so much power that they can have women in a way that no other man can whenever they want. Whatever they want. The cocaine, the money, the champagne, the girls. And then I walk in the room and it's like eight times out of 10, I'm put in that category and they expect from me what those girls have to offer when that's just not at all what I have to offer in any way like That's not why I'm here. I'm not a receptacle for your pain. I'm not just a place for you to put it. So the methodology behind what I've done is that when they wanted me to be sexy or they wanted me to be pop, I always fucking put some absurd spin on it that made me feel like I was still in control. So you know what? If I'm going to be sexy on the VMAs and sing about the paparazzi, I'm going to do it while I'm bleeding to death and remind you of what fame did to Marilyn Monroe. Quote the producer she mentioned. Who is unlike the other womanizing producers is Mark Robinson, who is an incredible, well respected music producer who also worked closely with Gaga's idol.
