To say that Lady Gaga is an inspiration would be an understatement.
More than once Gaga has spoken up about taboo but important issues, whether it’s through music or otherwise, and let’s not forget the Born This Way Foundation which aims to “provide young people with kinder communities, improved mental health resources, and more positive environments”.
In association with Heads Together, an organistion headed by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, The Duke himself recently had a talk with Lady Gaga on mental health. The main topic of discussion is being open about struggles in order to de-stigmatise and normalise the issue; many of us will suffer with a mental illness in our lifetime, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
