This might be Lady Gaga’s best speech yet

Lady Gaga has never been one to shy away from talking about mental health. It’s an incredibly important topic that carries so much stigma, and she’s always been proud to be a star who will use her voice to normalize being open about it and encourage more people to seek help and mental health care.

Her acceptance speech at last night’s Grammy Awards is no exception. After winning her third Grammy of the night for her smash song “Shallow” from A Star Is Born, Gaga used her time on stage to highlight the film’s important messages about seeking help when you need it.

“I gotta thank God, thank you for looking out for me. Thank you for my family at home, I love you,” Gaga began, visibly emotional onstage as she choked back tears.

She then continued, “If I don’t get another chance to say this: I just want to say 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 got to take care of each other. So if you see somebody that’s hurting don’t look away. And if you’re hurting, even if 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.”

Can we just pause for a minute here to talk about how she is, now and forever, an absolute queen? Ugh, Lady Gaga, from one girl who’s struggled with some mental health problems, thank you for this.

And I’m far from the only person to appreciate her openness. Twitter absolutely lit up with others who had to speak out to thank Gaga for always being such a strong advocate and role model for those who are struggling with their mental health.
