Lady Gaga Praises Selena Gomez for Opening Up About Battle With Depression

Lady Gaga cheered on Selena Gomez during her emotional acceptance speech after winning the Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock award at the 2016 American Music Awards earlier this week.

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.”

Also pictured inside: Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta going shopping on Friday (November 25) in New York City.

    Yep, Ugly Gaga just has to impose herself and try to steal the moments from everyone around her. She truly is a parasite. She has been paralleling herself with everyone else that has media attention for years to try to make herself the focus instead of allowing others to have their own moments without her jumping on their bandwagon. She truly is a usurper in all ways. It is the top checkbox in her playbook of being the “master at the art of fame.” A truly self centered, selfish, despicable woman.

  • Carol Anne! Carol Anne!

    Gaga’s constant mindset: “How can I get in on this so I can get all eyes on me.” Sick opportunist at every turn.
