Lady Gaga Pays Tribute to Late Friend Sonja: 'Go Find Joanne'

Lady Gaga lost her best friend Sonja Durham to cancer this past weekend and she made us tear up with the touching tribute she just wrote in an Instagram post.

The 31-year-old entertainer, who previously talked about Sonja‘s battle with cancer during her Coachella performance last month, revealed the last words she said to her friend.

“Last thing I told her, ‘Go find Joanne, Sonj,’” Gaga told her, referring to her late aunt who served as the inspiration for her latest album. “Somehow I think she did.”

Read the full note below:

“I don’t know how to put a price on a friendship. I’m not even sure how you can assess the size of its meaning, only really your heart truly knows and it’s too special for words. I feel two competing feelings,” Gaga wrote. “Firstly, that I will live everyday with more passion, more determination, more compassion and more giving than ever before. Because that’s who she was, and it’s what drew us to each other, and I know it’s what she always wanted for me.”

“She had this incredible way of releasing me from the anchor of my own sadness that held me back, she loved me fearlessly while I learned how to cope with fame and stay inspired no matter how scared I was. She knew all I cared about was the music. She made that ok,” Gaga added.

“The other feeling I have is that of being robbed of the last 10 years of my life, friendship and career with her. Like someone took her from us, and with that taking took all the good times,” Gaga said. “I know that’s not true, and I know that I have those memories forever, I’m just in shock that I will never have new ones with her. I’m in shock that I won’t see her again until I pass too. I vow to be a little stronger everyday for her because that’s what she would have wanted, I vow to be stronger for anyone who’s lost somebody to cancer. I’m a part of that family now. I vow to be a warrior for her and be a voice for cancer patients so the world can continue to improve the dialogue and the fight. I loved her. I still love her. And I love so much her husband Andre, stepson Sante, and friends. I made them some food yesterday. I will keep cooking. Cooking my soul until it understands this.”
