Lady Gaga Delivers Inspiring Message About Mental Health After Winning A Grammy For ‘Shallow’

The smash hit ‘Shallow’ from A Star Is Born has not only been killing it on the charts but it’s scooped up some of the biggest awards in the industry.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper can can add a Grammy to the ever-increasing trophy cabinet after the pair won the award for Best Pop Duo/Group

When Gaga accepted the award, barely able to fight back tears, she used the moment to deliver an important message about mental health.

She told the crowd: “I’m so proud to be a part of a movie that addresses mental health issues. They’re so important.

“And a lot of artists deal with that. And 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.”

It’s an inspiring message that was at the heart of the movie, with Bradley Cooper’s character killing himself near the end.

The film shows Jackson’s mind slipping further into depression and self-loathing as well as the impact suicide can have on friends and family. No doubt Gaga’s message will ring true to many people around the world.

Gaga has had quite the night after not only winning a Grammy for ‘Shallow’ but also one for her album Joanne for Best Solo Pop Performance.

She wrote on Twitter: “I’m not gonna be able to wear any makeup tonight. We just won our first of Grammy nominations for the night.

“I’m in tears with honor and gratitude. Thank you @RecordingAcad #Grammys #Grammy and my co-writers and Bradley I love you so much thank you.”\

She won the Grammy for Best Pop Solo PerformanceThe singer won high praise for her track, “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?” The fact that is feels like that song and album came out 7 years ago doesn’t matter because it’s what Gaga deserves after that impromptu Las Vegas duet with Cooper. It’s what she deserves. On Twitter, she cried again, writing, “Thank you so much for this gift I am completely shocked. 2nd Grammy win of the night I am so overwhelmed by this kindness.”

And if that wasn’t good enough, A Star Is Born won the BAFTA for Best Original Music.
The accolade was specifically awarded to Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga and Lukas Nelson, who beat BlacKkKlansman‘s Terence Blanchard, If Beale Street Could Talk‘s Nicholas Britell, Isle of Dogs‘ Alexandre Desplat and Mary Poppin’s Returns‘ Marc Shaiman.

‘Shallow’ was nominated for four Grammys including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Song Written for Visual Media.

It’s also won at the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Movie Awards and Satellite Awards. All eyes will be on the Academy Awards to see if she can scoop up any other big awards.
We can imagine the party will be going wild in Camp Gaga tonight. Well done.
She owned Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.

Not to be dramatic, but Seacrest should be embarrassed for his red carpet behavior. Props to Gaga for calling out the red carpet host for thrusting his hot mic in her face just expecting her to speak into you. “You didn’t ask me a question,” she said, as she dodged the mic.
She took this perfect picture with Jennifer Lopez.

She opened up the show with Alicia Keys, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lopez, and Michelle Obama.

The five queens opened with emotional and inspiring monologues. Gaga talked about how early on in her career she was deemed “weird” and told that she wouldn’t even make. And look at her now! Everyone wants to take another look.

She won AGAIN for “Shallow.”

Gaga started out her speech by saying she was missing her other half, Jackson — I mean, Bradley. “I wish Bradley was here!” she said, before she went on to the more emotional part of her speech. “If I don’t get another chance to say this I just want to say I am so proud to be a part of a movie that addresses mental health issues. They’re so important. A lot of artists deal with that and we got to take care of each other. If you see someone that is hurting, don’t look away. And if you are hurting, dive deep and tell somebody and take them up in your head with you.”

Gaga is also nominated for an Oscar for Best Song (her and Cooper are slated to perform on February 24), and she’s pretty much a shoo-in to win, but it was sweet hearing a more sentimental speech from her that isn’t about 99 people being in a room.

She admitted she was having, like Baby in Dirty Dancing, the time of her life.

She performed “Shallow” as Lady Gaga performing as Ally performing as Lady Gaga.

The meta JUMPED out. It takes a mastermind to create the turducken of songs. As Ally as Lady Gaga, the singer stomped her feet, and thrashed her head, and looked angrily into the camera with a stare so deep I felt it in my soul. And I liked it? Okay no, I loved it. Still, it was weird. But weird is good — just think about “Hair Body Face.” That was weird! But also great. Touché Ally. I mean Gaga.
