When Lady Gaga stepped on the stage of the 61st Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 10) to accept her award for Best Pop Duo or Group Performance for “Shallow,” there were smiles and tears and a good amount of shock. But there also was an important message that the music powerhouse needed to share with us all.
Let’s all care for one another.
“I’m so proud to be a part of a movie that addresses mental health issues,” Lady Gaga said, referring to her work in the movie A Star is Born. “They’re so important. A lot of artists deal with that, and we’ve got to take care of each other. 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.”
And that’s how you do an acceptance speech.
The moment was just one of the many that Lady Gaga delivered on a night that saw her not only winning three Grammys, but also turning out a crazy amazing performance of “Shallow.”
“I know he wants to be here,” Lady Gaga also said in her acceptance speech, referring to the fact that her “Shallow” partner Bradley Cooper couldn’t attend the ceremony due to a previous engagement. “Bradley, I loved singing this song with you.”
And we love watching you sing it.
