Lady Gaga just won another Grammy Award. Gaga and Bradley Cooper won the Grammy for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for Shallow from their movie A Star Is Born. The actor-singer accepted the award solo as Cooper was in London attending the BAFTA award ceremony. While accepting the award, Lady Gaga took a minute out of her speech to highlight the mental health issues in the entertainment industry.
“Thank you, thank you so much. I’ve got to thank God. Thank you for looking out for me, thank you for my family at home, I love you. Thank you, I wish Bradley was here with me right now…Bradley, I loved singing this song with you. If I don’t get another chance to say this, I just want to say I’m so proud to be part of a movie that addresses mental health issues, they’re so important,” she said on stage.
“And a lot of artists, a lot of artists deal with that. And we got to take care of each other. So, if you see somebody that is hurting, don’t look away. And if you are 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 to the Grammys.”
Gaga also won Grammys at the 2019 ceremony for Joanne and another award for Shallow. Gaga who was nominated for five awards was one of the highlights of the show. She not only gave an electrifying performance at the do but also helped host Alicia Keys, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama to open the awards night.
