A Star Is Born is shining everywhere and with it, Lady Gaga is using every opportunity to share her heart with her millions of fans. After winning the Golden Globes for the Best Original Song for "Shallow," Lady Gaga has won three Grammy and delivered a rock version of "Shallow."
The acclaimed pop star used the Grammys' stage to highlight mental health issues. After receiving the award, Lady Gaga first thanked Almighty God and her family for their support. She even wished Bradley Cooper, her co-star from A Star Is Born, to be there with her at that moment.
Following which, Lady Gaga took the opportunity to address mental health and how important it was to her to work in such a film which deals with something like this.
A Star Is Born follows the life of an alcoholic musician Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper), who discovers and eventually falls in love with a young singer Ally (Lady Gaga). The film talks about Maine's alcohol abuse and how his addiction causes friction between him and Ally.
In her acceptance speech, Lady Gaga stated that she is immensely proud to be part of a project that addressed mental health issues. She even called it an important issue to be noticed and stated that there are several artists who deal with such issues and we should all come together to help whoever is in our dire need.
"We gotta take care of each other. So if you see somebody that's hurting, don't look away. And if you're hurting, even though it might be hard, try to find that bravery within yourself to dive deep and go tell somebody and take them up in your head with you. I love you, thank you so much," Lady Gaga said.
Apparently, this is not for the first time when Lady Gaga has taken such a platform to discuss the mental health crisis. The 32-year-old Gaga, who has won nine Grammy Awards in total, accepted another prestigious award back in November 2018. During that acceptance speech, she recalled the time when she found herself going blackout for seconds or minutes.
"These were also symptoms of disassociation and PTSD and I did not have a team that included mental health support," she added at that time.
Meanwhile, A Star Is Born has also received eight nominations at the 91st Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Bradley Cooper, Best Actress for Lady Gaga, Best Supporting Actor for Sam Elliott, and Best Original Song "Shallow."
