"I've suffered through depression and anxiety my entire life," Gaga admitted. "I still suffer with it every single day."

The "Poker Face" singer added that she isn't sure that technology and the Internet are helping those people who already feel alone in the world.

"There is something in the way that we are now, with our cell phones and people are not looking at each other and not being in the moment with each other, that kids feel isolated," Gaga explained. "They read all of this extremely hateful language on the Internet. The Internet is a toilet. It is. It used to be a fantastic resource -- but you have to sort through sh*t to find the good stuff."

In 2012, Gaga launched the Born This Way foundation and has since been on a mission to help those who struggle with feelings of depression and anxiety like herself. "I just want these kids to know that that depth that they feel as human beings is normal," she said. "We were born that way. This modern thing, where everyone is feeling shallow and less connected? That‘s not human."

Gaga has set quite the example for her fans through her success over the years. Mother Monster is currently starring in American Horror Story: Hotel and creator Ryan Murphy had nothing but amazing things to tell ET about working with her.

"I have to say, she's one of the great professional joys in my life," he gushed. "She has been such a team player, the cast and crew is obsessed with her. Her performance is amazing. She's a great actress."
