Lady Gaga has always been a very outspoken celebrity, and recently spoke out about her weight gain and bullying she suffered as a child. She also founded the Born This Way Foundation, which “Was founded in 2011 to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. It is dedicated to creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a kinder, braver world.We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, to be empowered and to make a difference in the world. Together, we will move towards acceptance, bravery and love.”
Lady Gaga will have a bus at her Born This Way Ball shows called the BornBrave bus. The bus will be staffed with mental health professionals, DJs, food, games, and fun. On her facebook page, Lady Gaga addressed the addition of the BornBrave bus, saying, “For those wondering about the “counseling” at the BTWBall BornBrave pre-show, it will be a fun tailgating experience for monsters to unite. At the BornBrave Bus you have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school & friends. There will also be food and games, DJ White Shadow and Lady Starlight will DJ with host BREEDLOVE to keep the experience fun. BornBrave Bus Is a place where mental health + depression are taken seriously w/ no judgement, FREE real help available to all. I feel like most kids don’t look for help because they feel embarrassed so mom + I wanted to break the stigmas around “help” and make it fun.”
Lady Gaga also released the news on Twitter to her 33 million fans.
We personally think it’s an incredible offering, and hope that many of her fans enjoy it! What do you think?
