Lady Gaga Uses Grammy Win to Make an Emotional Plea About Mental Health Struggles
If you missed the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, then consider this the one highlight you need to see.
Typically, after celebrities win their award at the Grammy’s, they take the stage to make some kind of speech, which usually touches on the film, the actors involved, and how the star got to where they are. They thank the important ones, take their award, and the show goes on.
But Lady Gaga went about this a bit differently this round. She saw it as an opportunity to touch on a very important topic.
After the emotional singer and actress accepted her award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Shallow,” she took the stage to give her speech.
She started out by thanking all the people who made the film possible, and even included a special shout out to her costar Bradley Cooper. “I know he wants to be here,” she said. “Bradley, I loved singing this song with you.”
She then brought up her popular film “A Star is Born,” which they both starred in, and that led into a very powerful, important message about mental health issues.
“I’m so proud to be a part of a movie that addresses mental health issues,” she said. “They’re so important. A lot of artists deal with that, and we’ve got to take care of each other.”
She then talked about how to help someone hurting in regards to mental health issues, and it really hit home for everyone in the crowd, as well as viewers watching at home.
