I couldn't speak: Lady Gaga reveals how devastated she was when she heard about Amy Winehouse passing away
Lady Gaga has revealed she was so devastated by Amy Winehouse’s death she couldn’t speak for 48 hours.
The Judas singer appeared on The View chat show, which aired in the U.S. earlier today, and spoke of her grief, even though she never met the Back To Black singer.
She told the panel: ‘I am just so devastated and so sad and I really could not speak for 48 hours straight I was in such shock.’

Lady Gaga then went on to explain how a lesson should be learnt from the death of the singer, who she described as ‘the most lovely and nice and kind woman’.
She told the ladies of the ABC panel: ‘I think the most unfortunate thing about it all is the way that the media spins things, like we can learn from Amy's death.
‘I don't feel that Amy needed to learn any lessons. I felt that the lesson was for the world to be kinder to the superstar.’

‘Everybody was so hard on her, and everything that I knew about her was that she was the most lovely and nice and kind woman.’
The outspoken singer also said: ‘You know, you can't have it both ways. You can't enjoy listening to someone sing sad songs about the blues and heartbreak and then not expect them to be truly heartbroken.’
Lady Gaga, who is currently on a promotional tour for her new single, spoke about Amy just last week on Omaha 94.1 Radio during an interview where she revealed she was often mistaken for the soul singer before she herself found fame.

Gaga, who has admitted to using hard drugs in the past, said she no longer did drugs apart from being an occasional user of marijuana saying ‘I am a little bit part of the green club’.
She explained how she stopped using hard drugs when her father called her out.
She said: ‘My dad was like, “I know what you're doing, and just so you know, I did it and I lost every friend and everything that I ever had while I did it.” He shared with me his life story and his struggle, so that was what ultimately changed my life. Honestly it was the best thing that happened. I never went back.’
