Why Lady Gaga Called Selena Gomez 'Brave'

November 25, 2016
Selena Gomez's brutally honest speech at the American Music Awards has touched a lot of people, including Lady Gaga.

If you missed it, Selena opened up about her mental health issues saying she was "completely broken inside."

Lady Gaga, while talking to an Australian radio station, praised Selena for being so authentic. "I found it very brave of her to stand up and speak about [depression]. I know her and I had a kindred excitement for her at that moment. As artists we don't want to let people down. I found it very brave of her to let it out and take the shackles off. You don't always have to keep up a good front to succeed, what matters most is you're OK inside. I applaud her.''
