Lady Gaga Praises Selena Gomez for Opening Up About Battle With Depression
The 30-year-old singer posted a photo of herself having a sweet backstage moment with Selena during the event, and now Gaga is giving Selena more praises for speaking so openly about her battle with depression and anxiety.
Gaga told KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O that Selena‘s speech was “kind of like watching someone rip the shackles off their arms and unchain themselves.”
“I found it very brave of her to stand up and speak about [depression],” Gaga went on. “I know her, and I had a kindred excitement for her at that moment.”
“You don’t always have to keep up a good face and a good front in order to succeed,” she added. “What’s most important is that on the inside you’re OK because it’s your heart that matters.”
