Mimicking the way her interviewer dresses, Lady Gaga confirmed that she tested borderline positive for lupus in Larry King Live last Tuesday, June 1.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune connective tissue disease that can affect any part of the body. It attacks the body’s cells and tissue, resulting in inflammation and tissue damage.
“Lupus is in my family and it is genetic,” Gaga said. “The truth is, I don’t show any signs, any symptoms of lupus. But I have tested borderline positive for the disease.”
Her aunt died of the disease in 1976.
Larry King asked her how she feels about it in which the singer responded that she is okay, that she is taking care of herself and that she is not yet experiencing the effects of lupus as of the moment.
Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanott, Lady Gaga turned 24 last month.
She is promoting her latest single Alejandro which she performed during the top five results of the recently concluded season of American Idol.
