The 'You & I' singer opens up for V Magazine while posing for a variety of different covers.

Lady Gaga has given an emotional interview about her difficult late teen years fresh from the unveiling of a further two covers for her latest magazine shoot.

The 'Marry The Night' singer recalls a time when she was "left a shell" by bad experiences from the age of 18, after being reminded of it through one of her outfits for her V magazine cover shoot.

"That look was very hard for me, because that is how I looked when I was 19 until I was 21 years old, maybe longer," Lady Gaga reveals in the new V magazine issue. "I got my hair cut like that when I was 18 and all these really painful things happened during this time.

"When I became an adult at 18 I allowed myself to stay in bad situations because I was able to take the pain," the singer explained. "Although I was able to withstand a challenge for that period of time in my youth, the results were destructive.

"I was left a shell," she added.
